Puppy Tips

Posted: 2 years ago

As we get closer to the time of year when a lot of families will be getting new puppies for Christmas I wanted to share some of my key tips and bits of advice that helped me during those difficult first 6 months. This is in no way any form of professional advice but more me sharing my personal experiences and things that I often tell family and friends who find themselves struggling during those early days.

Keeping an eye on your new pup 24/7 can be tricky and exhausting. B

King Buddy on his Throne

Posted: 2 years ago

It’s clear to see from this picture who thinks he rules the roost in this house.

This gorgeous bed was given to me as a gift by my sister as a birthday present when Buddy was 6 months old. As you can see from the photo my house has a lovely big low window where Buddy loves to sit and watch the world go by.

The bed was made bespoke to size by a talented local joiner/carpenter in my sister’s village. He makes a whole host of things (not just dog related) but as you can see from the image below h

Outlaw for a day

Posted: 2 years ago

This weekend Buddy and I decided to have a catch up with one of our favourite people and take a trip to explore some of the history and culture of the City of Nottingham. We knew we were going to be stretching our legs at the park later that day so we wanted to go somewhere fun and interesting that we’d not been to before. We started the day by taking a look at the magnificent Nottingham Castle, a historic site at the heart of the Robin Hood legend and starting point for the English Civil War.

The Yellow Dog Project

Posted: 2 years ago

Ever seen a dog out walking that has a yellow ribbon, bandana or something similar on its lead or collar? Do you know what it means?

As someone who’s dog can be a little over enthusiastic towards other dogs, (he wants to play all the time with everyone and everything) I think it’s important to highlight the significance of this project.

For those of you who don’t already know The Yellow Dog Project is a registered charity created to bring awareness to dogs who need space while trainin

Dogs in the workplace

Posted: 2 years ago

As someone who has seen first-hand the impact of having a dog in the workplace I thought it was an interesting discussion point. My day job would be considered to be in a traditional professional services industry and is based across 2 offices within the same city with approximately 200 staff. Our company has been going through a lot of changes recently as a result of new leadership and about 12 months ago a decision was made for the business to co-purchase a dog with one of the members of staff
