We rehomed Harpo when he was 10 months old and quite a handful! It was tough work to start, but our efforts paid off and we've now got a beautiful, affectionate, smart hound that makes us very proud (most of the time!). We've tried Canicross, synchronised obedience, trick training and scentwork. But my best time is out in the wilds with Harpo - multi-day walks, camping, canoeing, whatever adventure we can find.
Every chance I get, I'll take him on a job with me, presenting anthropology, archaeology and adventure shows for TV or researching pieces for written features. He's come to visit ancient stone circles, met mountain rescue search dogs, wild camped across Dartmoor and canoed down...

To inspire you, the team at Stay In Devon have picked out some of the best dog friendly beaches in Devon so you can plan your next dog friendly holiday or day out with your four legged friend in the county.
Woolacombe, North Devon

Having run around the thousands and thousands of stands at Crufts this year, I have come across a couple of really clever ideas that I wanted to share with you – if you are at Crufts you can pick them up there, if not, you can always order from ourselves or through the web address mentioned below.
As many of you know, I have recently welcomed Holly to the family (she is a little devil) and we had our first trip away a couple of weeks ago. I did not realise how much clobber I would have to take with me to look after her whilst I was away, and found myself with bags and bags of bits and bobs!
I came across the “Stay over Rover” bag from Collarways (Hall 1, stand 168) – it is a great idea...

Once again hosted in the NEC arena, Birmingham, Crufts 2015 is ready to go! For another four glorious days, competitive dogs and their equally competitive owners will be flooding back to see if another year’s worth of preparation have left them in winning form, or about to go home with their tails between their legs.
Crufts 2014 was a roaring success, and featured 524 more dogs than the previous year (which had itself played host to a record number of pooches), as well as canine entrants from 4 previously unrepresented countries; Argentina, China, Serbia and Taiwan.
If last year’s event was anything to go by, Crufts 2015 should be even bigger and better! Of course, as with previous...
