Despite claiming to love and care about animals, many pet food companies test their food and elements of their food on lab animals. These animals, many of whom are bred for the sole purpose of testing food, are subject to inhumane and invasive tests.
On Saturday 1st September, Pup Aid hosted their annual free dog show in Primrose Hill, London. The aim of this event and Pup Aid as an organisation, is to simply put a stop to the demand for puppies, which leads to puppy farming. They do this by setting their event up to raise awareness for responsible breeding practices and promoting the amazing dogs available for rescue. Puppy farms are unfortunately still running all around the world where both the breeding dogs and their puppies are kept in horrible conditions, the puppies are then sold in mass and the mumma dogs will go on to have more litters than the maximum frequency they should. It’s tough knowing that this is still going on, but with organisations like Pup Aid and events like the one they are hosting, we can put an end to this horrible industry.

Whilst some dogs love car rides, Ember included, some dogs struggle with being in the car for a long period of time. If, in your judgement, your dog would enjoy a road trip with you, here’s some tips I have collected to make travelling with your dog an enjoyable and safe experience.
English based and made, CC Bear treats are made using only the best natural ingredients from British distributors. The family run business, Chef Christine and lucky taste tester Bubba Bear, have created these all natural, vegan dog treats for dog wellness, to celebrate the magical relationship between dogs and their owners. Ember and I were so excited when Christine offered to send us some treats to try. Meet our new favourite treats.
Holiday season is here! Whilst some people prefer to go abroad on super swanky holidays, I like nothing more than an adventure holiday where Ember can come too. Two years ago we went to the New Forest and we’re going back again this year, I can’t wait! There are so many benefits of taking your dog on holiday, here are a few of my favourites.
I first found Busters Bisquits on Instagram and was intrigued by the natural ingredients Romana uses to bake the treats. Named in memory of her beloved Buster, these treats are hand baked with love and attention in small batches in her kitchen. I was so excited when Romana offered to send Ember a trial pack of their classic treat and their new Vegan biscuits.
Summer is on it’s way, which usually in the UK means a few hot sunny days followed by clouds and rain, but this year has been a little different with the current heatwave we are enjoying. However, with this sunshine, it’s important to remember how our dogs get affected by the heat. Here are a few tips to help keep your dog cool for the summer.
We’ve had the pleasure of a heatwave these past fews days and while most people have been enjoying sensibly it with their four-legged friends, the same sad stories involving dogs suffering in the heat have been hitting the news. Despite warnings from Dogs Trust and The RSPCA, to name just two, that Dogs Die in Hot Cars, many dogs have been rescued from overheating after being left in hot cars by owners. It’s hard to imagine any dog lover leaving their dog in a car on a hot day but it, unfortunately, happens all too often. The matter of the fact is, it’s never okay to leave your dog in a car – even if it’s only for a minute. So to try to really drive this message home, one of the UK’s top online auto essentials brands, Ignitionline, have created a hard-hitting infographic with some outstanding stats.
You probably know how much Ember and I love Guru, their cold-pressed food is a firm favourite and their complete meal bones are great for travelling. To top of their offerings, they have now created their Venison Sausage Slices containing venison and chopped apple. The venison contained within these ready to eat treats is sustainably sourced in Britan, an important value that Guru stick to for all their products.
