Freedom and Safety!

Spring is the perfect season for long walks and hikes. Taking your dog along with you on these outings makes them an even more enjoyable experience, both for you and your canine companion.Given that dogs are natural predators, the great outdoors gives your dogs a myriad of interesting scents to sniff along the way. Whether you’re walking by the sea, in the countryside or along mountain trails, remember that letting your dog off the lead can – particularly at this time of year – lead to trouble and may even be illegal in some areas.One thing to be especially mindful of is that you may encounter wild animals along the way. With it being spring, some of these animals may

Exercise and Training

Many training principles are specific to the type of activity in which your dogs will be involved. Other variables include climate, terrain, age of the dog, breed of the dog, etc. All forms of mushing, with all the different variables, are wonderful ways of forming a close bond with your dogs. In general, training can be separated into two categories: education and physical conditioning. When you are planning your training schedule, consider your goals and your dogs’ abilities. Simply counting miles, for instance, can be deceptive. The type of conditions that the dogs encounter are important too, i.e. steep hills, trail-breaking in heavy snow, extreme temperatures or wind. New mushers should consult books and experienced mushers for help, but also

Hydration of canine athletes by DVM Sergio Maffi

To ensure that our dogs reach their full performance potential, we are used to focusing on the raw materials in their feed, the calories, and percentages of protein and fats. However there is one component of their diet which is often overlooked, and although it contains not a single calorie it is the most important part of what we feed our dogs…WATER!

Fun in the snow!

Getting out into the snow with your dog can be great fun but there are a few things to bear in mind to keep your four-legged friend safe. Fluffy white piles of newly fallen snow are often irresistible for dogs and they’ll soon be off running and playing through the drifts. Sometimes your dog may be tempted to eat the snow, whether for fun, thirst or to cool down after a run. Unfortunately, swallowing snow can sometimes cause vomiting, diarrhoea, chills or other issues. If any of these problems arise in your dog, you should always contact your vet. Fresh snow can also cause problems with your dog’s paws, forming lumps or balls of ice. These can be very irritating

SUMMER activities?

There are some essential steps to take, other than using the right gear, to ensure that your active, sporty dog stays healthy. Not all dogs are able to regulate their energy expenditure and will run until they collapse. As well as embarking on any new activity in a gradual way, it’s important that you know how to recognize signs that your dog is tired or stressed so that you can intervene when necessary and take the right course of action: for example, alternating walking with running, taking rest breaks and always making sure you always have fresh, clean water available for your dog to drink and rehydrate. Bear in mind that running is not a sport which is suitable for
