Hi there, My name's Helen and I have 3 dogs, Galilea, Iolanthe and Kibuluu. Galilea and Iolanthe are mixed breed, mainly Boston Terriers, they are 20 months old Kibuluu is a Sprollie (mostly Collie) and he is 11 weeks old.
We have some problems with dog beds in our household, and we now mostly stick to blankets, because Galilea and Iolanthe like to play 'to me, to you' and they are not very good at it! So the remains of the dog beds end up being spread all around the house. The Country Dog Heavy Duty Crate pad looked sturdy enough for us to try, and is a last ditch attempt to find a bed that can survive our puppies.
I purchased the crate pad for Galilea and Iolanthe to take with us...

I'm sure we're not the only ones who have noticed that, no matter how many times we wash them, our dogs still end up stinking! Even worse, that lingering canine stench often ends up being transported around the house, to ultimately be transferred to anything that your unaware pooch makes prolonged contact with. It almost goes without saying that one of the likeliest resting places for 'eau de chien' will be your dog's bed or basket, as it will also most likely be your Pooch's favourite chill-out spot.
Needless to say, when we heard that Dog Gone SmartTM had been designing a range of high-tech dog beds and mats that are not only a pleasure for your dog to use, but a simultaneous relief...

My name is Emma and I work as a part time small animal vet as well as studying for a masters degree at the University of Nottingham's Veterinary School. I will try almost anything so long as it gets me outside and moving!
We all know our fur baby is special, but Mouse my rescue Jack Russell terrier is a fur baby with a few special requirements.
Her history is unknown, but when we met she was very poorly with suspected poisoning. Fast forwards a few months and Mouse was back to fitness and very keen to get out with me on my adventures, but she has a tendency to 'forget' where her front feet are and drag her toes on longer runs and walks (she doesn't really know where they are).

What to expect when you're expecting Puppies - Part 7 - Homing Your Brood
So you’ve made it through week one and the bags under your eyes are showing signs of reducing, but no sooner is one hurdle cleared than another one looms in the near-distance. And we’re not out of the woods yet either, so keep weighing those puppies and writing down all your observations in that notebook. Here’s what to get ready for over the next few weeks.
If your litter is pedigree you’ll need to inform the KC of their births, though it’s worth waiting a couple of weeks to see how many make it – a morbid but realistic consideration. You can set up an online account with the Kennel Club, enter all...
