Getting your dog a puppy.
Facts On The Devoted Golden Retriever Puppies And Kids #goldenretrievertee #goldenretrievers_ #GoldenRetrieverPuppies.jpg

Many of us feel bad for our dogs who are left alone at home by themselves everyday we leave for work, diner, party, or any other social function that doesn’t allow to bing your dog with you.

I know what you’re thinking, how dare they restrict your life when all you want to do is share with the world how wonderful your doggy is. Those unfortunate scenarios leave us wondering if your dog is okay at home, all by himself, or ‘‘ does he miss me?’’ This is when we convince ourselves that it’s a great idea to get our companion a companion of his own for when where not there!

If that’s you and you’re considering getting a puppy for your dog, you’ll be very happy when I tell you that it’s so much easier to train a new puppy once he already has a big brother or sister to lead by example!

Before I get into this any further I want you to know that dogs cannot tell time. Whether you leave for 8 hours of work or a 20 minute shopping trip your doggy is equally as happy to see you because to him you could have been gone for 5 hours, for all he knows you’ve just been to work and back. Keeping that in mind whenever you’re about to leave your furry friend at home make sure you feed him then take him out for a walk, to do his toilet, get rid of some of that energy and give him time to sniff and feed his brain the information it needs to keep busy so that by the time you’re ready to leave your dog has been feed, walked, stimulated and now is happily relaxing on his favourite bed. You can get on with your day knowing that you’ve done the best for your dog before even left him.

Getting a puppy for you dog, as silly as it sounds women and men all over of the world are expanding their doggy families. I would recommend to look after someone else’s puppy before you get one for your dog. It will give you the experience of having a puppyhood again, and all the charm that comes with it. You’ll also find out how your dog can deal with another dog staying over and getting your attention instead of him. All of this experience can either be distressing or exciting for you both. I have to say using your dog as an example to teach your new or borrowed puppy what's expected of him works like magic.

Remember to use the magic spell ‘‘Your Happy Voice’’ and tell your dog when he is being a good boy while watching puppy’s reaction, he will connect the dots a lot faster when he seems what makes you happy and what’s expected of him.

Good luck and please comment bellow with any questions you may have!

Super Dog Mum Tips - Let Your Dog Sniff the Ground!

Happy Monday My lovely ladies! This week I wanted to ask you a favor, it's to allow a few seconds of your day to let your doggy smell and sniff the ground. Trust me he will really appreciate it and it will reinforce your leadership! When we rush the walk and pull our dogs away when they stop to smell we are braking their trust in us because we are letting down one of the basic needs of an animal, a very important one for that matter! It's the MENTAL STIMULATION, for our dog's sense of smell it is almost like reading a book or their favorite newspaper, so please allow your dog to read and stimulate his brain in order to stay healthy for longer. I strongly encourage you to take your dog for a walk somewhere new, somewhere fun like a forest walk, or hill walk or even a beach walk if he's never been to the beach! By doing so you'll reinforce your great leadership and you and your dog will live a happy life together.

Love, Roksana

The Eye Infection

Hello Lovely!

I have recently noticed that Daisy’s eyes have been watering very often, I have also found myself cleaning out the pus of her eyes a few times a day. If that happens to your dog, please call up your Vet.

After a Vet consultation turns out Daisy has an eye infection, caused by nothing else but the seawater of the east coast of Scotland. Daisy was chasing her ball into the water with her eyes wide open staring at the ball, bacteria along with the water got into her eye and caused an eye infection. She was given eyedrops for two weeks, twice a day.

This fun game of chasing the ball into the water cost me £65 including £25 consolation fee. The easiest way to avoid this would be by throwing the ball safely on the bech or the grass instead!

Eye infections can be tricky, some might pass on its own, others could spread and could even lead to loss of vision, that's why it's always best to consult with your vet if you feel that your doggy is suffering.

The easy way to check if anything is going on with your dog's eyes is to check the bottom eyelid which is supposed to be light pink if you see any reddness your doggy might need medication such as eye drops.

Hope this will help you avoid similar problems in future!

Love,

Roksana
