Maybe next time

The Naturally Happy Dogs team attended the FSB Hertfordshire Small Business Awards 2012 Gala dinner along with a few hundred other finalists. There were some very strong entrants this year and a few businesses stood out as leaders in their industries.

Unfortunately we didn't come away with an award, however our framed 'finalist' certificates are up in our offices. We were very pleased and honoured to even get to the finals so we didn't leave disappointed. There's always next time and we'll keep trying!

Irish Terriers

Today we visited the lovely Ann Bradley and her Irish Terriers, which she breeds and shows.

It is rare for us to visit someone so organised, and Ann had prepared her answers in great deal making her an absolute pleasure to film. Her older bitch 'Lady' was a calm and thoughtful example of the breed, and helped Ann welcome us to the home, but gave us a false sense of security - Ann also has a number of younger dogs and they were anything but calm! An energetic and lively breed, they were a real pleasure to meet and film and were a credit to themselves.

We very much look forward to bringing you this article in our breed library, one of our best so far! Thanks very much Ann.

Ready, Set, Finnish!

Today we filmed another two breeds for the breed library, Finnish Lapphunds and Irish Setters. First we visited Elaine Short and her Finnish Lapphunds.

Elaine has 9 Lapphunds including the various colours that the Lapphunds comprise, and a variety of ages from 8 months to 12 years. She also had one bitch in whelp, about a week from full-term...we should have visited three weeks later! We wish Elaine all the best with the new additions to her canine family, and thank her again for her time.

Then it was onto visit David Bell and his Irish Setters. Again there was a variety of ages on show with their youngest dog being only 4 months old, and their eldest 13 years. David is the Chairman of The Irish Setter Association, England and with 40 years experience of the breed was very knowledgable. We thank David and his wife for their time, and very much look forward to bringing both of these breed videos to you soon.

June 2012 dog videos

Another month, another action packed issue goes live on the Naturally Happy Dogs website.

This month we feature the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, with an interview with Jo-Ann Essex and Lesley McFadyen from the East Anglian Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club, who are also our charity of the month this month.

We also have another interview with Karen Lawe all about training deaf dogs, and a great video about the training process that Canine Partners use to train their partner dogs. With another interview with Victoria Stilwell about the problems of anthropomorphising dogs, a fascinating insight into the canine cancer treatment option CV247, and another video from Mary Ann Nester about dancing with dogs, it is another very full month - see all our videos in this issue here - June 2012

But that's not all – we also feature the first in our series of dog grooming videos with groomer Jo Hart, who explains how to clean your dogs ears.

We've had another busy few days full of filming too, so lots more interesting articles coming up in the next few months, stay tuned!
