It isn’t difficult to see why, so by understanding why it can be so stressful for dogs, it’s easy prevent your dog from becoming anxious and unhappy. Carolyn Menteith, Trainer and Behaviourist for Agria Pet Insurance, explains what the triggers are and how to help minimise stress: Most dogs can cope with the temporary craziness of Christmas – but, for a surprisingly large number, it’s stressful and worrying. In the Nightmare Before Christmas scenario, the dog is under-exercised, over stimulated, under-supervised and over-threshold. An accident waiting to happen. A dog’s usually predictable home is a scene of upheaval, with things everywhere and unexpected visitors to the house. To make things worse, the dog is probably getting less physical exercise than usual while the adults seem to be running around doing everything that don’t include the dog.  So how to make sure you all have a merry Christmas?

The 12-week-old pups have now written to Santa Paws to ask for their fur back. RSPCA Millbrook Animal Centre, in Chobham, Surrey, took the trio in on 27 November after they were abandoned by the side of the road in Effingham, Surrey. Deputy manager Liz Wood said: “These poor little dogs were dumped beside the road like rubbish, it’s disgusting. They’ve got a really bad case of mange and are practically bald which means they’d have been even more vulnerable to the cold and rain. “Thankfully, someone spotted them and asked us for help and we were able to get them into our warm, dry kennels quickly. “They’ll now stay with us over the Christmas period while we nurse them back ... read more

  • How I Stopped My Dog From Pulling on the Leash
    If there’s one thing I envy at the park it’s seeing dogs that walk perfectly by their owner’s side. Another dog coming up? Doesn’t phase them at all. A trio of excited kids approaching? The dog doesn’t seem to notice. My dog and I used to be the complete opposite. I was the lady trying desperately to keep my dog calm on walks. I’d be holding her back with all my power whenever someone walked by, and I was the one with a tight grip even when nothing “exciting” was around because pulling became her default on walks. But a few years back I finally found some tips that helped. After reading and watching everything I could find on the subject I found some methods that worked. In this article we’ll go over why dog’s pull, methods to stop the pulling, and why consistency is key. Here’s how I stopped my dog from pulling on the leash. Why Dog’s Pull on Leash Before diving into the methods that can stop your dog from pulling on the leash let’s take a quick look at why dogs pull to begin with.
