Safe Dog Walking Fields

Browsing Facebook, as you do, I just came across a page listing safely fenced dog walking fields.  These are available for rent by groups or individuals – each according to their particular terms & conditions.  One can search by postcode, name of town & distance  Obviously one has to pay but the guarantee of sole use might make it worth your while.  As it happens there is only one within 10 miles of us & we don’t have problem dogs ourselves but if you do then search for ‘Dog walking fields’ on Facebook or go to their website  http://www.dogwalkingfields.co.uk   Sounds like a great idea if your dog is reactive, prone to chase wildlife or you just want to relax & play without distraction.

Colour Code Guide Dogs!

Would you know what it meant if you saw a Guide Dog with either a red and white or a blue and white harness flash?

The photo above shows working Guide Dog Hetty with a blue and white flash on her harness. Blue and white indicates that Hetty is also a seizure alert dog.

Saints Sled Dog Rescue – Frosty’s Story

Frosty,  a two year old Siberian Husky, sadly has a problem with her eyes. As you can see from her picture she is showing the typical cloudiness of immature cataracts.

Not down to hereditary factors or age in this case – Frosty is diabetic , a condition that makes all breeds of dog  prone to cataracts.

If the condition isn’t treated then Frosty will become progressively blind. We are sponsoring Saints Sled Dog Rescue with a supply of our Clarifye eye drops to help Frosty cope and hopefully prevent further deterioration.

As Michael Mettam of SSDR pointed out this  would aid her chances in getting a new home as they have now (after much trial and error) got her diabetes under control and would love to help her regain her eye sight?

Saints Sled Dog Rescue is a nationwide, voluntary run non-profit charity . their aim is to help as many unwanted and stray Siberian Huskies and Alaskan Malamutes as possible through the process of fostering and re-homing, or simply supporting their owners with help and advice. They also arrange and carry out educational visits across the country, including working and handling demonstrations.
