How to Clean Your Dog's Ears

Many dogs suffer from mucky or smelly ears at some point in their life, some more than others, so here's a short video on how to clean them. For dog's with ongoing problems, give us a ring.


How to Build a Den for Fireworks

Many pets do not like fireworks. There are many things you can do to help them to remain calm, but building a den where they can feel safe is a great idea. If your pet already has a crate then use that, but otherwise you can use household items to create one. Be sure to put food & drink in as well as their favourite toys & beds. 

How to Brush Your Dog's Teeth

Most people brush their own teeth daily, if not twice a day, but never think about their dogs. Dogs teeth can build up plaque & tartar causing dental disease the same as us. Feeding dry food can help, but unless it is a dental specific diet it is probably not doing too much. The only proven way to prevent dental disease is by daily brushing. Watch our video to learn step by step how to do it & remember not to try to rush through the learning stages.
