Dog Christmas Safety Survival Guide

Dog Christmas

Christmas is coming (read that in a Jon Snow voice, of course) in fact, it’s only a week until Christmas Day.  It’s Ember’s first Christmas with us and while Christmas is supposed to be stressful, with some fun too, it’s obviously more stressful when you are a dog owner.  In order to make sure that Ember has the safest first Christmas, I’ve been making a list, and checking it twice. So I thought I would share with you to make sure the Christmas period goes smoothly for your dog and you....

Pure Pet Food

Last year Ember was lucky enough to try some of Pure Pet Food’s Meaty Sweetie Treats.  These treats were a perfect introduction to the Pure Pet Food brand, so I was very excited for Ember to try some of their food. Ember is doing really well recently on her current food Guru, but we have been wanting to add a little bit of wet food to her evening meal, I instantly knew Pure Pet Food was the best first option. The food we are lucky enough to try is Chicken Dinner, which is grain free and designed for sensitive dogs, perfect for Ember as she has quite a sensitive tummy....

Ending Puppy Farms with Pup Aid

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...

Why You Should Take Your Dog on Holiday

Take your dog on holiday

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....

Busters Bisquits

Busters Bisquits

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 Tips for Dogs

Summer Tips for Dogs

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....

Big Tick Project | Our Experience and Tips

The Big Tick Project

In August 2015 Ember picked up a tick on her stomach whilst we were on holiday in the New Forest.  Ironically, the same year in April 2015, the Big Tick Project was launched in the New Forest.  The Campaign was started to raise awareness about ticks and tick-bourne diseases in the UK, to help pet owners protect their pets and themselves.  Each year, veterinary practices collect data and complete a questionnaire to contribute to The Big Tick Project’s Campaign.  The information helps to make up a UK threat map, which shows the risk of ticks in local areas.  Find the map here, is your local area a high risk?  Mine...

Pooch and Mutt

Pooch and Mutt

Pooch and Mutt were the first treats Ember ever ate, way back when we first got her in 2015. These British made treats are baked with the best natural ingredients, they are low in calories and ethically made, which is something really important for me. Plus, Ember loves food, so what’s better, is Pooch and Mutt offer food too....

Neoh and Nobo Review

A few weeks ago, Ember tried some Neoh and Nobo Banana and Turmeric treats, you can find our first impressions here.  Long story short she loved them, so when Neoh and Nobo officially launched I ordered the rest of the collection straight away.   Neoh and Nobo’s brand aesthetic is everything and their website is so fresh and modern, with plenty of information about their treats.   Along with information about the brand and treats, there is also information about how they are made, the ingredients they use along with their benefits and let’s not forget their eco seal (paw print) of approval.   Neoh and Nobo’s treats are all...

Guru Dog Food 

Guru Dog Food

In an attempt to stop Ember acting like a kid on smarties, the vet’s words not ours, we decided to change Ember from puppy food to a fully fledged adult diet. I hadn’t heard a lot about Guru, but I had seen a bit of hype on social media so I was interested to try it out, the team at Guru were more than happy to send a sample which, went down a treat....
