Attack Of The Killer (toy) Poodle!

Attack Of The Killer (toy) Poodle!

OMG – I’m mortified. Worse. I feel ridiculously guilty.

You see, my dog nearly caused an elderly Asian lady to have a heart attack.

I’d just gone outside to bring in the rubbish bins and thought nothing of letting my little gal accompany me so she could sniff the grass and enjoy whatever odours other passers by had left. It was mid-afternoon, nobody around, benefit of working from home.

Rainy Day Soggy Doggy Solutions!

It's raining cats and dogs! Well, not really but across South-Eastern Australia right now it almost feels like the annual wet season. 

And that can mean 'soggy doggies'.

You see, most dogs these days are 'inside dogs' but they’re trained to go outside to do their 'business'.

But what happens when it’s raining?

Love Is In The Air - Hoo Hoo Hoo!

Love Is In The Air - Hoo Hoo Hoo!

It's not spring.. yet... but the Eastern Grass Owl can,t wait as they begin their search for a mate before heading off to nest and settle down with their new family.

The ground-nesting owls are listed as ‘vulnerable’ on the NSW Threatened Species list by the independent Scientific Committee. 

Jill Smith, Conservation Officer at the Office of Environment and Heritage, said the ghostly night birds mainly inhabit open tussock grasslands, grassy heathland and agricultural crops such as sugar cane in the coastal plains of the NSW north coast with occasional records on the north-western slopes and south to Sydney and vagrant records farther south.

No Sun? You Can Still Have Doggy Fun... Here's How...

No Sun? You Can Still Have Doggy Fun... Here's How...

When the temperature drops… does your enthusiasm for outdoor doggy walks drop too?

I have to confess – mine does – but when I get the ‘doe-eyes’ from little Ms Troublemaker that it’s ‘that time of the day’, well, what’s a little -10 degrees icy wind chill factor compared to a happy dog? (ok – so maybe that’s a slight temperature exaggeration). 

But depending on your location, the fair-dinkum outside weather conditions and your breed of pet, there are some fun indoor alternatives to walkies which will get you over the winter hump without fear of frost-bite.

Leash 'Freak Out' Aged 3... Why?

It's not only puppies that have problems learning to walk nicely on a lead. Here's a quick recap of a problem we were asked to provide some guidance on.

Molly the Moodle who used to be so good walking on lead - suddenly will walk a little way and then won’t budge!

So, your Moodle Molly has become something of a mystery, eh?

Maybe acting like a sulky teenager, maybe?

To Cuddle or Not!

To Cuddle or Not!

Dogs are pretty cute right? –  and there are some of us who just can’t resist getting up close for a cuddle. And that’s the problem,  you see we might think we’re smart because we can talk… but most of us get a D minus when it comes to doggy speak… better known as canine body language.

Hands up if you’ve ever seen a child or an adult intending to hug a dog, putting their face up close to the dog… nose to nose, eyeball to eyeball, wearing a big toothy grin.
