Tried & Tested: Behavioural Therapy & Dog Training for Toileting Issues Part 1

Basil-training-feature.jpg

Dear canine community, we have a confession to make. Being a good (and most importantly firm) pet parent is not a skill that came naturally to us and until just a few months ago, our own little ten-month-old treasure/terror was not a shining example of a well-trained dog. Sure we grew up with dogs, carrying out daily duties such as feeding and walking but nothing quite prepares you for your own dog, one that you are wholly responsible for 24:7 and who’s behaviour is a product of your creation.

Basil’s Blog: Cushions, Canine Crushes & Social Outings

Basils-cushion.jpg

It’s been a busy few weeks since I last put paw to laptop and what an exciting time it’s been. I am especially thrilled to report that I am the latest ‘cushion star’ for Nikki Szabo’s Mad About Dogs collection – and in not just one but two hand-painted designs! Should you like the look of my squishy face and care to share your home with me, cushions are priced £45 each from Nikki-Szabo.co.uk. The ‘BASIL’ pictured left is me as a puppy, and the ‘BASILEUS’ on the right shows me, as I am now and using my pedigree name.

Basil's Blog: Denting the Bucket List

Basil-in-pub.jpg

At the beginning of 2013 we set out details of Basil Barkarama’s Doggy Bucket List – a 50-strong list of things he should do in his lifetime. Our efforts have been fairly relaxed to date – he’s only managed one so far (cheer up your owner when they are down) but we are pleased to report that he has ticked off a further three so only 46 more to go.

In my quest to become a roving re-pawter I’ve aggressively pursued my editor with puppy dog eyes and trick wizardry, which has landed me my very own column – Basil's Blog so here goes …

Basil's Blog: A Trip to Doggy Daycare

Basil-Doggy-Daycare-action-shot.jpg

Young pup Basil is forever by my side but with an important funeral to attend, and without a dog-sitter to call on, what to do? Thankfully my parents came good with a suggestion – their local doggy daycare centre a.k.a. crèche for canines. However, I wasn’t going to let Basil go to any old place; my parents were sent to vet the place. Thankfully, they reported back that Trendy Pooches Doggy Daycare in the Wirral was a suitable play-date location for their beloved grand-pup.

Basil-with-Christmas-gifts.jpg

Firstly let us wish you a Happy New Year. We hope you had as great a break as we did with our pup Basil, who’s pictured above posing with our joint Christmas haul - bit a of a doggy theme this year as you can see. We’ve only had him for five weeks but it’s hard to imagine life without our little ‘American Gent’. Anyway that's enough gushing for one post, there's a shiny, New Year to address.
