Caring For Your Dog: The Essential Guide Review

by Vivien Richardson on August 25, 2011

Caring for DogsI have recently read this book by Jennifer Thomson, and have to say that it is one of the most informative and easy to understand I have read. Being the owner of a 5-year-old Labradoodle who are renowned for their exuberance, I have purchased and read more than my fair share of training and caring for your dogs’ books.

It quickly becomes apparent that Jennifer Thomson knows what she is talking about, so it is no surprise to hear she has owned dogs all her life – and it was one dog in particular who inspired her to write the book, also including a chapter on dogs with special needs, such as epilepsy, as her dog Vic suffered (more…)

Canine cancer tips written in new book

by Leanne Thompson on June 20, 2011

42Rules_FightDogCancer-bigDog cancer is a subject that is not usually talked about very often, but dog cancer, much like human cancer is caused by damaged DNA that can cause an uncontrolled increase in cells. An exposure to carcinogens such as smoke, pesticides, additives and preservatives all impose a risk to a dog over time.

Sometimes a dog may have inherited damaged DNA which may result in an inherited cancer but this is not too common. There is a correlation between the dog’s age and the chances of the dog contracting cancer. Worryingly cancer is now the (more…)

by Vivien Richardson on February 20, 2010

laughing dogIt was suggested by animal psychologist Nobel Prize winner Konrad Lorenz in his book Man Meets Dog that dogs are capable of laughing just like humans.

Cooking for your dog

by Darren Jamieson on June 8, 2009

cooking_for_your_dogSome dogs need a special diet, others are quite happy and healthy on the ‘usual’ dog’s dinner so to speak. In Britain, we know we have an obesity problem and that it has probably stemmed from the association of food with love and it is the same with our animals. Some people absolutely dote on their pets but how far would you go for your dog’s diet? Would you perhaps buy a cookbook especially for your dog and spend hours cooking for him?

That’s the idea behind ‘Cooking for your dog’ from Paragon Books which contains recipes such as (more…)

How do I take great photos of my dog?

by Clare Jones on October 29, 2008

If you’re a dog lover, the chances are you’ve spent many an evening trying to photograph your dog, attempting to get a picture that fully captures their personality. We’ve all tried, but all too often the dog refuses to play ball, or in some cases opts to ‘actually’ play ball when you’re trying to get their attention. They look away, run off and just won’t recreate the poses you know they’re capable of just because you’ve got your camera out.

Help is at hand however from a new book, which comes out on November 1st, and offers invaluable tips on how to take great photos of your dog. The book, PhoDOGraphy: How to Get Great Pictures of Your Dog, is available for (more…)
