A TTouch of class

After what seems like a lifetime we have finally returned to film Jane Harvey, TTouch practitioner and proprietor of Harvey's Dog Training & Day Care.

Jane very kindly showed us round her doggy day care facilities, and also talked us through some more TTouch techniques including ear work. We have got some great articles which we look forward to bringing you in the next few months. We thank Jane very much and look forward to filming her again in the future.

Insurance matters

Today we had the pleasure of filming Neil from VIP (Independent Pet Insurance Specialist Brokers) about an important subject – pet insurance.

Neil is the Managing Director of VIP and has been in the insurance game for many years. He is also a contributor to Dogs Today magazine providing advice to worried pet owners about what their insurance covers. Neil gave us a lot of very useful advice about choosing a pet insurance company, choosing the right policy for you and your pet and also what to do if things don't quite go to plan.

May 2012 live

It is springtime and here at the Naturally Happy Dogs offices we are thinking about new beginnings. In particular, this month we are focusing on children and dogs.

We start off with a fascinating piece on the work of Lincoln University and their study into dog bite prevention for children. That is swiftly followed by an interview with Victoria Stilwell about introducing a dog into a family with children. Finishing off our 'young persons' theme is an article about the Young Kennel Club, featuring an interview with Fay Moore which we filmed at Discover Dogs last November.

Also in this month's issue, a very moving piece featuring Lorna and Eli, the Canine Partnership that we filmed as part of our feature on Canine Partners. We think this is our best article to date, you may well need a box of tissues to hand when watching this one.

Behaviour expert Jez talks to us more about chewing, in this article he talks about what to encourage your dogs to chew, and at what times. We hope to be working closely with Jez on a related project in the coming months, which we very much look forward to... watch this space!

TV vet Joe Inglis also makes another showing this month, this time talking about how to find (and keep) a good vet. Very interesting to see this from the vet's point of view – you might be quite surprised!

Our dancing with dogs feature also continues this month, with expert Mary Ann Nester showing us how to teach the reverse command, and our friends at the RSPCA talk us through the adoption process.

Another busy month, and we are hard at work preparing the next information-packed issue for June, see you then!
