Reiki with Rob

We were welcomed back to Shropshire to film Rob Fellows and his dog Monty today.

We covered topics such as 'Reiki for stress' and also interviewed him about Monty's heart condition and arthritis, which Rob treats with Reiki every day.

We thank Rob for his hospitality, and look forward to filming him again in the future.

The world's bravest dog

Today we were very privileged to meet up with Dave Heyhoe and Treo, his Army explosives and weapons cache search dog.

Dave spoke to us about how he met Treo, the training process, and of course the work he did in support of our troops abroad.

We thank both very much for their time, and look forward to bringing you this video shortly.

Socialisation training

Today we filmed Tamsin Jane in Cambridgeshire with her 6 month old long-haired Akita pup.  Tamsin explained some of the differences between the American and Japanese Akitas, and also talked about the importance of socialisation, particularly with breeds such as the Akita.

We also filmed an interesting video about the Nina Ottosson range of dog training toys, we look forward to bringing you these articles soon.

Getting ready for Crufts

In a few days time we’ll be bringing Naturally Happy Dogs to Crufts Dog Show for the first time and are naturally very excited! Crufts, is, of course the world-famous dog event organised by the Kennel Club. In March’s issue we have a couple of articles about some of the invaluable schemes run by the Kennel Club. One is the Assured Breeders Scheme (Assured Breeders Scheme) which sets standards of good practice for breeders and the other is the Companion Dog Club Scheme (Companion Dog Club) which gives owners of non-pedigree dogs the opportunity to compete in a wide range of competitions.

We continue with our series of articles on the work of Medical Detection Dogs (Medical Detection: The Benefits) and take another look at the benefits of changing your dog to a raw food diet (Changing to a Raw Diet). We also offer general dog training tips (Gundogs - Retrieve Problems) (Teaching the "Name Game") and further suggestions for anyone wanting to try out trick training ideas (Teaching Cross Paws).

In addition, we investigate a new development in the realm of dog safety. The Animalarm (Animalarm) is a device that gives warning when the temperature surrounding your dog is too hot or cold - invaluable if you have to leave your dog for brief periods of time. If you don’t already have one of these devices, come and visit us in Hall 5, Stand 104A for a chance to win one.
