The Importance of Breed Research

Each breed of dog has its own unique characteristics. When you are looking to bring a new dog into your family, it is therefore important that you research breed profiles so you can find a dog to match your personality and lifestyle


Breed Profile: The Standard Poodle

Best in Show for Crufts 2014 was awarded to Afterglow Maverick Sabre, better known as “Ricky”, a handsome Standard Poodle owned by his handler Jason Lynn together with John and Sandra Stone. This popular breed is instantly recognisable, with their elegant gait, proud, balanced physique, and often remarkable clips. Here is our introduction to this beautiful and intelligent breed.


More Dogs with Jobs

Dogs have been at our side throughout history, and over time have been given more and more roles in our society. Our pet dogs provide us with companionship and love on a daily basis, but there are also innumerate dogs around the world who work with us on a daily basis.

Canine Coat Care – Wire Coats

Many dog owners, especially new dog owners, feel slightly lost in the world of grooming. With so many coat types and breeds, along with the huge number of grooming tools available, it can be difficult to know which tools and techniques are suitable for your dog.

The Importance of Dog Grooming

Every dog needs grooming. A healthy, clean coat is often the indication of a healthy, happy dog - indeed, a lack of grooming can even lead to health problems over time. Grooming should therefore be a routine part of the health care of your dog.
