Where to go to adopt a dog.

Now, if you have ever thought about adopting a dog in the UK there are a number of places that you can go to. The good thing about these places is that they will give you a history about your new friend and also make sure that the dog will find a safe and loving new owner.

There are a number of reasons why some dog owners tend to give their pet up for adoption which include bad dog behaviour, lack of funds to take care of the dog or for other reasons.

Bad dog behaviour is never a reason to give a dog up to a shelter, as a dog can easily be house trained and turn into a loving pet.

Some owners do get their dogs taken from them for some reasons which could also include cruelty, I do not see a reason to be cruel to a pet. It's uncalled for and just should never happen.

By the way if you are looking for a pet to adopt you can use the following shelters:

I am sure that there are many more, but those are the ones I can think about off head.

Hmm Food

There is one thing that I love to do on a summer day after working hard all week is having a rest. My dog and I really have a lot of time to bond together as always.

I also love cooking and on occasions I tend to invite a load of friends around for a meal.

I have found some easy recipes on this site here and as long as you have the patience they are easy to follow.

I tend to go for the easy options but I also believe that I should push myself and go for one that seems a bit difficult and see how it turns out, hopefully by the end of the evening there will be no one dying of food poisoning.

Potty Training Tips If You Have Bought A New Puppy.

Training a new puppy to stop
pooping around the house
If you have just got a new puppy you by now you will be experiencing the joys of owning one. Whatever breed your puppy may be they are going to act like a puppy. Along with the joys come some hard work of scooping up the poop and searching around the house to make sure that they have not done a sneaky one somewhere in the house.

The key to making sure that your puppy knows where to poop is important if you do not want to continuously clean up their mess. Here are a few tips that will help if you have just bought a new puppy or own an existing dog that uses the house as its toilet. The most important thing to do is become observant around your pet. 

  1. Choose an area in the garden or indoors if they are a puppy that you would want them to use as their toilet. Always stick to the same spot. 
  2. Look out for the various signals that they display to you before they use the toilet. They cannot talk as human beings but they have their own way of communicating. 
  3. As soon as they show the signs take them to the place where you would prefer them to relieve themselves.
  4. When they use the place that has now become their toilet start to praise them and you could offer them a treat. This will be delivering a positive message to your dog or puppy and they will eventually learn that this is where you would want them to relieve themselves.
