A guide to help you plan your visit
Helpful advice to help you care for your pets at home at this time
How to get dogs used to people wearing face coverings
Face coverings can worry dogs because they take in a lot of information from reading people’s facial expressions and it can be disconcerting if they aren’t sure about a person’s feelings and intentions.
How to help puppies who have missed out on socialisation in lockdown
You might now have a puppy of four or five months old who knows all about the tumble dryer and is used to loud noises coming from the TV, but who has never met a child, or someone riding a bike or carrying a walking stick.
How a change in routine can affect cats
Lots of pets find predictability keeps their stress levels low. So, for pets who have had to adapt to big changes within their home and family, this can be a time of increased anxiety.
Expressing dog's anal glands
Dog’s anal glands are typically the size of a small grape and sit just inside the bottom. We would always recommend speaking to your vet if you believe your dog’s anal glands need expressing.
Training your dog at home
There’s nothing in the world quite like living with a pet. They bring us joy, fun and companionship. And you can get even more enjoyment from your furry friend by helping them to learn.
Walks with your dog
Whether you’re just popping around the block before you settle down for the evening, or you’re heading out to explore new countryside, time spent walking with your dog is a great way to bond, while enjoying fresh air and exercise.
