Dog-Cope-With-Fireworks.jpg

Bonfire Night is about to go off with a bang, and while it’s a cause for celebration for humans, the loud and unexpected noise of fireworks can be a major source of stress for dogs.

This stress and anxiety could manifest itself in several ways ranging from trembling, destructiveness, hiding, loss of house training or excessive barking. We share 10 tips to help your dog cope with fireworks in the build up to and on the big night itself but if your dog is prone to anxiety, we recommend consulting your vet ...

For Her & For Fur: Aesop Washes

Aesop-for-her-and-fur.jpg

I was first introduced to skincare brand Aesop by a friend when my winter hands were in desperate need of hydration. From the depths of her oversized handbag, she promptly produced the most nourishing, sweet-smelling hand cream I’ve ever used and believe me my hands get v. bad in winter. Their botanically based skin, hair and body products for him and her include high-quality plant-based ingredients and non-botanical elements such as anti-oxidants so it’s packed with the good stuff. Most excitingly Aesop now produces an Animal Wash, a mild skin and fur wash, which gently cleanses and deodorises their coat leaving them smelling fresh with a mix of mint and citrus notes. For you, try their A Rose By Any Other Name Body Cleanser, a beautifully fragrant formulation containing skin-softening botanical extracts and Rose Petal oil.

Today we take you through how we’ve ended toilet-gate.

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.

New Buy: Puppy Bumpers for Your Dog's Safety

Puppy-bumper.jpg

At Barkarama HQ, we’re partial to pet products with novelty factor, which is why these puppy bumpers first grabbed our attention. However, should your dog have escapologist tendencies, seizing any opportunity to escape through the gate or under the fence then these donut-looking collars are a bit of a godsend.

Wellbeing: Are You Tick Aware?

Dog-Tick-Aware-1.jpg

Taking the dog out for his daily exercise is not always a ‘walk in the park’ what with dodging fox poo, swerving discarded takeaways or avoiding a bark off with an angry dog. But what about the dangers you can’t see such as ticks – those vicious blood-sucking parasites! Are you clued up on ticks and their risks? Would you recognise the problem if your dog caught them? Is your dog protected against them? If you answer no to one or all of the above then keep reading …

Wellbeing: Protect Your Dog Against Pet Theft

Pet-Theft.jpg

Today sees the start of Pet Theft Awareness Week. With increasing reports of dogs being stolen, snatched at knifepoint or kidnapped filtering through on our social media feeds and in the papers, there’s never been a better time to sit up, pay attention and get behind a campaign, which is pushing for stronger sentences for anyone involved in pet theft, and to encourage owners to take preventative measures to protect their pet.
