Give the dog a comb...

Today we met up with Jo Hart, a soon-to-be qualified dog groomer with a level 3 City & Guilds qualification in dog grooming.

Jo filmed three videos for us on our upcoming series of dog grooming articles. We look forward to bringing these to you in the coming months, beginning with "Cleaning ears".

Thanks to Jo for her time, and we look forward to filming with her again in the future!

Search & Rescue dogs in Kent

Today we met up with James Dunn of the NSARDA which stands for National Search And Rescue Dogs Association, on a farm on the Kent/Sussex border to film a training and assessment day with this charitable organisation.

NSARDA provide the Search & Rescue arm of Kent Search And Rescue, and are on call 365 days a year to provide their services as required throughout the Kent area. They are often called upon to search for vulnerable adults as well as missing hikers, and their service includes a high level of first aid training to provide medical assistance at point of discovery.

Entirely funded by charity and staffed by a hugely dedicated team of volunteers, they are often called upon to search all night and then return to their day-jobs the next day. We will be very pleased to bring you this article later on in the year, thanks to all at NSARDA for inviting us to their training day.

April 2012 is live

It's issue time again, and another packed issue is released, chock-full of the best information we can find from around the dog world.

This month we are extremely proud to be supporting Canine Partners, and bringing you the first video in our series covering this amazing charity. Hear from CEO Andy Cook all about the work that they do and the lives that they change.

In terms of dog behaviour and health, we have the likes of Victoria Stilwell, Dr Roger Abrantes, and TV vet Joe Inglis all making another appearance in our star-studded video library, and we have more dog training treats from Mary Ann Nester and Adem Fehmi. Last month's charity, the Pet Blood Bank, allowed us to film a donation session at one of their centres, and this video also features in this month's issue.

Topping all this off is an article with the Chairman of the Friends of RSPCA Southridge explaining the work that they do to help their local RSPCA centre.

See you next month!
