Advice on keeping your dog matt free

Matts, knots, tangles, whatever you want to call them, they are an annoyance.  Matts can be painful for dogs and can even be dangerous to remove. The good news is there are things that can be done to help avoid a potential bad situation.

Dogs that have longer coats that continually grow, like Maltese and Poodles and dogs that have longer double coats like golden retrievers and border collies need to be brushed at home. Dogs that have short hair like labs or cattle dogs rarely get matted but still need to be brushed.

The brush should be a slicker brush or something similar with stiff bristles. When using a slicker brush, you should brush the dog all over always going with the direction of the hair growth. Make sure not to keep going over the same spot, because you could potentially brush burn your dog’s skin. (Brush burn is ... Click here to read more....

February Dog of the Month

Congratulations Grace Hanson!!!

Grace is a 1 year-old Italian Greyhound who has been part of the

Paddington Pups pack since early 2017 when she was only 4 months

old.

When Grace first started coming to Paddington Pups she was one of

the very few Italian Greyhounds who attended daycare at the time. At

first she was a little nervous but it didn’t take long for her to come

out of her shell and become the happy little ball of energy we all

know and love today.

Now, almost a year after her first day of daycare, she can often be

found frolicking around behind the front counter playing with any

and every dog that she can. Gracie especially loves playing with other

little Italian Greyhounds and tends to take the younger ones under her wing and show them the ropes.

Grace is absolutely adorable and a pleasure to have as ... Click here to read more....

New year, new addition to your Pack?

Sadly, as people start to get back into their daily routines after the holidays, the strain on Animal rescues and shelters and Pounds increases dramatically as puppies and dogs, often impulsively purchased as Christmas gifts, are being surrendered.

We know that all of the Paddington Pups Pack care deeply for their dogs and, well, dogs in general. If you have some spare time or space in your home, there are things you can do to help ease the strain on animal shelters.

If you’re wanting to get a family pet then you should definitely look into one of the many adoption centers or adoption drives as your new pack member may be waiting there for you to bring them to their furever home.

If you’re not looking for a furever dog, there is always the option to foster. By fostering, you are helping out your local Animal Rescue. You are ... Click here to read more....

Ho Ho No – Don’t Eat That!

Ho Ho No – Don’t Eat That!

Christmas time is upon us! The time for family gatherings, gorging ourselves with all of the delicious sweets and foods and not having a worry in the world. That is, unless your beloved family pet finds him or herself trying out some of that tasty chocolate Auntie Grace received from the jolly fat man himself!

 

While it is perfectly normal to spoil your pet over the festive season with an animal approved feast, caution needs to be used as there are plenty of foods that can cause harm – even death – to the furry member of the family.

 

We all know about the massive health implications Chocolate can cause to our household pooches but, there are many other well-loved festive treats such as grapes and raisins, nutmeg and alcohol that all have the potential to make your dog seriously ill ... Click here to read more....
