We have in the past supported pleas for help from various worthy causes. On this occasion we’ve decided to sponsor a puppy in training to be a Guide Dog, a decision made in response to recent TV advertising.
It was easy to set up a direct debit & we’ll receive regular pup-dates as training progresses. Of the three dogs featured for sponsorship I chose Joy as it’s an apt name for the festive season & because hopefully she will bring joy to her new owner in due course.

He has happily been a Flex Sprinkler for the last four years

Two out of our three dogs regularly snack on grass, occasionally other plants too. Personally I’ve always felt that there are varied reasons: Continue reading Why Does My Dog Eat Grass?→
Last week we had a completely off topic email from one of our customers. This gentleman buys Flex Sprinkle for his Golden Retrievers but was asking for recommendations as to suitable beds for his increasingly elderly dogs.
