Bonfire Night Survival Guide
28 November 2018 / Posted in: Blog Posts
With Bonfire Night arriving in a few days’ time, we have created a handy list of tips to make the night as enjoyable as possible for both you and your dog.
Try to walk your dog earlier in the day before the fireworks start. If you are concerned that fireworks might go off when you’re walking, keep the lead on.
Always keep your dog indoors during fireworks and close the curtains to cover flashing lights from outside
You can place some of your clothes around to keep them calm.
Did you know that dogs drink more when they are worried? Make sure you fill their water bowl up.
If loud noises are a recurring problem with your dog, speak to your vet in preparation about calming products. They let off a ‘dog appeasing pheromone’ and can help your dog to feel calm.
Dogs may like to hide in a place where they feel safe, this might be under a table or bed. Try not to disturb them once they have found a safe spot.
If your dog is panting, drooling, shaking or putting their tail between their legs, they’re stressed. Try turning the TV or radio on to muffle the noise, not too loud though!
Remember that praising your dog whilst they’re distressed will only make their phobia worse.
Finally, stay calm and give your dog lots of praise when it’s all over.

Autumn Dog Tips
07 November 2016 / Posted in: Blog Posts
Most dogs love this time of year, rain can make smells more exciting on a walk and they love to explore and get abit muddy! We need to make sure our pups stay happy and safe during this change in weather, here are a few tips for Autumn with your dog!
Walking with your dog
After each walk be sure to check your dog’s paws specifically between their pads and toes for hardened mud and stones. Cleaning your pups paws with some warm water will help remove any mud and prevent salt from causing any irritation.
If your dog feels the cold easily, kit them out with a warm waterproof dog coat. Even if your dog does not feel the cold it may be an idea to invest in a waterproof jacket with the unpredictable weather we have here!
Don’t forget to treat yourself to some warm clothes too; you want to enjoy the walk as much as your best friend does!
Walking in the dark
As the nights draw in more and many dog owners now walking their pets in the dark, it is important to make sure that you can be seen by oncoming traffic. Wearing reflective clothing is the best way to ensure you are seen, you can even buy dog collars that light up so your pup can be seen too!
Keeping the outdoors, outside
Your dog going for walks and toilet breaks in wet weather is bound to get a little muddy. One option when your dog is going for a toilet break in the garden is to buy a special doormat that traps any mud and water, this will save them leaving a muddy paw print trail around your house!
It is not only the inside of your house that suffers with muddy paws, your car boot will definitely get put through its paces if you and your pooch go on regular walks no matter what the weather is like outside. The VersaLiner will provide your car with high sided, heavy duty protection to keep your car boot just as clean as when you first got your car.
