Medivet Pinner

Today we visited with Reena Patel and her colleagues at Medivet Pinner, who very kindly allowed us to film their day.

We got some great footage of some consultations, and also some procedures in theatre which was very interesting, and will make for some great articles.

We filmed a few topics with Reena while we were there, and look forward to bringing these to you in the coming months. We also hope to return to Pinner in the not-too-distant future to capture some more great footage.

Thanks very much Reena and co, it was an honour and privilege to spend the day with you all!

'Ello 'ello 'ello!

Today we visited Stevenage Police Station to interview Sergeant Ian Blundell and Sarah Sheldrick about the Dogwatch scheme.

'Borrowed' from the Met Police, this scheme is aimed at getting the local community, and in particular dog walkers, involved in making their area a safer place.

Stevenage is now the largest such scheme, with over 2,000 local people signed up. Anecdotal evidence has shown that people involved in the scheme are more likely to report suspicious activity to the police. We look forward to bringing you these articles soon.

Filming Nina

At last we had our first opportunity to film Nina Bondarenko, not for the website this time but filming her seminar for a new DVD.

Nina was talking about various different training methods and demonstrating using the attendee's own dogs, which were allowed to come along.

We're a fan of Nina's work, and hope to film her for the magazine sooner rather than later... fingers crossed!

September 2013 dog videos

There are many tricks that are lots of fun to teach your dog but surely getting them to tidy their toys away has to be one of the more useful ones. Find out how in Teaching tricks - Tidy toys away. Other useful information can be found in the first of the series of videos about air travel for dogs, what to take into account and how to find a good company to help you with this. For this, see the video Pet Air UK.

In September's issue we have more to offer in our ongoing series': Ringcraft - Showing Dogs, Herbs - Dandelion (Taraxacum officinalis), Wild Wolves in the UK and Support during grief and pet loss. We also learn about how the VMD (Veterinary Medicines Directorate) deal with reports of adverse reactions to drugs.

Finally we look at Dog Poo Wormeries, how to turn your dog's waste into something a little more useful. We really do cover everything!
