Gearing up for Crufts this year

We're already looking forward to Crufts this year but for the first time in a few years, we won't have our own stand. I (Sally) will be there though, we have some important chatting and some even more important dog-watching to do! There are over 400 trade stands there so plenty to keep ourselves occupied.

If you want to go to the event, we will be running a few competitions soon for tickets, or to secure your place early you can purchase tickets from

Filming Nina Bondarenko

It was unsurprisingly chilly as we headed off to London to meet up with Nina Bondarenko today. Nina has some ingenious ways for training perfect heelwork and loose lead walking for the biggest and bounciest of dogs and we wanted to capture these for Naturally Happy Dogs.

We had taken office dog Sandy with us to help demonstrate a few of the techniques and Nina was joined by one of her students with a lovely husky cross who was an expert lead-puller. Needless to say, Nina soon had them trotting along perfectly.

Happy New Year 2015

We're getting the new year off to a good start with quite a few videos on training.  Beginning with the very young dog, Nando Brown shares his ideas on what to do when your puppy bites you. If you're having problems with a noisy dog, Ian Dunbar shows how to teach growl and shush.  In the first of his videos, Kamal Fernandez, a trainer in competitive obedience, tells us how to motivate our dog. Brenda Aloff is also on hand to show us how to enable our dog to feel comfortable with us being the one in control, especially useful if your dog is nervous or reactive.

We have another video on carting, this time on the training process, and in another video, little Skyler has her first tracking lesson.  We also have another of our product videos, this time looking at the Green Feeder.

Finally, we begin a new series which takes an in depth look at The Kennel Club where we find that a lot more goes on than we might realise.
