Have you got a comfy sofa for Sir Charles Weston?




Sir Charles Weston loves to snooze! He will find the comfiest spot in the house and happily snooze the day away. When he is not napping, he loves to go out for long walks and is very good on his lead.

Charles is looking for an adult-only home, where there are no other pets, as he loves to have the place to himself.

Training Tips!

Problem chewing

Last week, we looked at chewing and what it means for our dogs. This week, we are looking at providing alternatives for our dogs to chew on.

Dogs that have a high motivation to chew things are difficult to stop and punishing them tends to cause them to chew away from you in places you won’t notice rather than reducing the chewing.

It is advisable to provide suitable objects for your dog to chew on. Natural chews such as tubers (dug up from tree roots) are great for dogs that prefer chewing on wood as they do not splinter and are safe for dogs’ teeth. Antlers are useful for dogs with relatively soft jaws as they can chew and nibble them for weeks without cracking the antler.

Natural, long lasting chews like stag bars and stuffed marrow bones can provide hours of chewing in addition to a tasty snack to keep your dog busy.

There is also a wide range of specially designed plastic and rubber chew toys on the market, it’s a case of trying a few to see which type your dog prefers.

Raw meaty bones are also a suitable option for dogs who need something to chew and can be acquired from most butchers. Things like marrowbones, ribs and spines are fun for dogs to chew and also easily digestible.

Avoid giving raw weight-bearing bones such as those from cattle legs as they are incredibly tough and can crack or chip your dogs’ teeth.

Also avoid cooked bones as these can splinter and cause hazardous digestive upset.
