This  article and video explores his rubber shoe playing fetish. He loves a good sock too, but The rubber garden shoes really seem to do it for him the best when looking for something to chew. However there are more reasons why this is so, than you might think.

The dog treats bully stick/ beef pizzle, was caught in a Video consumed by Scrat!

Kelpie eating bully stickIf you don't know what a bully stick looks like or what kind of chewing it offers a dog, then this is the perfect article and video for you

Scrat is mainly a kelpie, and in quarantine any kind of meat distraction is well worth its weight in gold to a dog. This is the video of Scrat eating the bully stick from start to end. It is sped up by x3 in the middle to prevent your snoozing.

Blackdog sells their bully sticks/ beef pizzle in packs of 25, which you can buy from my on-line store on this site, but I also break these bags down into packs of five.

Healthy Blackdog Mini dog biscuits. Ingredients and road test - VIDEO

Healthy Dog BiscuitsWhat dog doesnt enjoy a mini dog treat biscuit?

Blackdog make many flavours of biscuits but I have opted for the ones that are meat, dairy or medicinal orientated. Hence on this site you can buy mini biscuits in the flavours of beef, cheese, and charcoal.

it is true that I try to promote people using more meat in their dogs diet, but a lot of time that is just not going to do anything. So if you love grains in your dogs diet (the vast majority of kibble and dog food cans are mainly grain) then adding a little more will probably have very little affect.

Dog Treat Chicken Meat Balls road tested by Archie VIDEO

dog eating chicken treatsLovely dog treats chicken meatballs looks deceptively like dog kibble.

The dramatic difference is that while dog kibble usually has 20% meat in it, these chicken dog treats have up to 85% meat.

It just so happened that while I was video this dog treat eating session with Archie, there was a perfectly still golden sunset, much like the colour of the dog treats. I enjoy just watching the video for therapeutic reasons as much as it is instructional.

As a bearded collie, she is from working dog stock, and I have created another video of her retrieving efforts. But this video shows how great her coordination is at jumping to catch the ball.

Large Pork Twist DOG TREAT eaten entirely by Shine the Rottweiler - VIDEO

shine dog eating large port twistA lot of people may not be aware of the large pork twist and how a dog eats one, so here is a great instructional video for just such a purpose.

The dog leading this lesson is Shine the Rottweiler. He was recruited simply because this chewing task was far too onerous in a short period to give to my dog Archie the spoodle.

That said, this small dog treat still requires substantial chewing, so much so that I had to speed the video up in the centre of it so that you could view it all in one manageable sitting.

The difference between good &bad dog owners

happy dogMy dog while not exemplary in behaviour is 'bad' mostly because of my lack of discipline not from exercise or food issues. People don’t understand that as the pack leader they themselves have a responsibility to daily take their dogs on DAILY life affirming excursions.

What I also have experienced with my new dog friend is the bond I witness in many other diligent owners who either regularly take their dog to off-lead dog parks or when they go out to cafes.  Since having walked many dogs, I have become aware of some very interesting social dynamics. Good owners V bad dog owners. Which are you?

Tilly Jack Russell loves to swim with the seagulls VIDEO

tilly dog on pipeTilly is a dog that I walk three times per week. I have done this for a few years, but she has only realised her talent for swimming.

In fact she swims for up to an hour at a time, but the most remarkable thing about this more than her size is her breed.  You see Tilly is a jack Russell and Jack Russells are one of the best 'ratters' out there. They were bred to be alert and courageous hunters often taking on vermin of their own size or larger. But swimming has never been in their description.
