Where Should I Board My Beloved Dog?

Where Should I Board My Beloved Dog?

 When holiday times approach, emergency situations arise, or if you just want to head out for the night without worrying about your beloved pup, overnight boarding for dogs is an option that is frequented by many pet owners. There are multiple companies and at home businesses that offer this service around the Brisbane area but before you make your choice there are some important questions that you should ask each carer, which will be discussed shortly. Take the answers to these questions into consideration from the perspective of your dog’s individual needs and try to imagine how well the described environment would suit him/her.

Paddington Pups has been offering boarding for three years now, and we are confident in saying that our service, from the perspectives of both the doggy guests and owners, is among the best out there. We are not attempting ... Click here to read more....

Sports for Dogs

Sports for dogs

If you’ve got a pup with a keen mind to learn or just a lot of energy, you should take a look into some sports your pooch can participate in! You may know of some already such as flyball, herding and even dancing, but the list of other fun activities is almost endless!

Although any sport you choose can be beneficial for any pup, it is good to be aware if your pup gets more out of physical endurance or mental stimulation.

If you were looking for something to stimulate your dogs’ mental abilities, nose work would be top of the list. It’s based on finding hidden scents in different environments, indoors and outdoors, and is great for those short on space. Nose work is great for dogs of all personalities, shapes and sizes, and it doesn’t require extensive obedience.

Tracking trials is another sport that uses ... 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....

Record Breaking Canines

Record breaking Canines.

All the dogs we see at Paddington Pups are extraordinary and very special and it got us thinking of dogs who have made the record books for being extra extraordinary. Thanks to Guinness World Records (http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com) we found a few which you may find interesting too;

  • The Largest dog walk in the world involved 22, 742 dogs in the UK in 2011 – do you think we can top it?
  • Super Sit in 2005 was the World’s largest simultaneous dog Stay and involved 627 dogs.
  • Cinderalla May, a Holly Grey, holds the record for highest jump at 172.7cm – how tall is your fence?
  • The largest litter of puppies is 24, to a Neopolitan Mastiff in 2004.
  • A poodle named Chanda-Leah holds the record for biggest repertoire of tricks, 469 different tricks, including playing the piano.

Olympics For Dogs

While we get ready for the Olympics this I thought it was worth thinking about the ‘Olympics” for our dogs. After researching Dog Olympics, World Records for dogs and medals received, its pretty amazing to see what these incredible canines are capable of!

Crufts, the largest annual dog show in the world by Guinness World Records, has its own version of “the doggie Olympics” featuring with an agility-training course. This is designed to test dogs mental and physical ability to remember obstacles and take directions from their owners.

The winner for this year’s ‘Olympics’ agility course was a seven-year old border collie named Igor, who completed the course in an incredible time with no faults!

The oldest dog in the world was an Australian cattle dog called Bluey, who lived to 29.5 years of age in Victoria. Bluey worked as a sheep herder until he was roughly 20, finally retiring ... Click here to read more....
