Foreign Secretary backs call to ban
Foreign Secretary backs call to ban shock collars
In a video posted on Ross Thomson MP’s twitter account, the Foreign Secretary states: “I am absolutely shocked to discover that electric collars are being used on dogs as utensils of discipline and education. There are far better ways of training your dog. Just as you don’t need to cane children anymore, we’ve moved on from that – let’s move on from electric shock dog collars.”

Kennel Club welcomes consultation
Kennel Club welcomes consultation on third-party puppy sale ban
The Kennel Club, whose own regulations explicitly ban the sale of puppies to third parties, has long called for an end to the sale of puppies in pet shops and by other third party retailers, as puppy farmers often use such outlets to sell their pups to unsuspecting members of the public who never see the terrible conditions that the pups were raised in.

Outdoor dog kennel

If you are looking for the toughest dog kennel, the safest dog kennel, modular dog kennel panels, a backyard dog run or a durable, galvanized dog kennel for your facility, then you are in the right place!

Then and Now

Has anyone been playing with the “then and now” hashtags? For some of you, that sentence probably sounds like a different language, but for those social media savvy folks out there, you know what I’m talking about! People have been posting photos of themselves, their dogs, their children, whoever from years ago, and then a recent photo of that same person/dog/animal/child to show their transformation.

For example, here’s a middle school Ryne on her first ever dog sled ride in Durango, Colorado that set everything in motion. And Ryne 18 years later, choosing to stare at dog butts for a profession. Ok, I’ll stop talking about myself in the third person. But you get it- Then and Now.

Looking at those two photos, I honestly don’t see much change.

But do you know who does make a HUGE transformation in the course of just a few months? REINDEER.

Between the summer and winter months, the reindeer look like completely different creatures. Why the drastic change? Well, a few reasons. The winter coat of reindeer and caribou is exceptionally thick. Their wooly undercoat traps heat against their bodies and a coarse, heavy duty outer coat made...

But do you know who does make a HUGE transformation in the course of just a few months? REINDEER.

Between the summer and winter months, the reindeer look like completely different creatures. Why the drastic change? Well, a few reasons. The winter coat of reindeer and caribou is exceptionally thick. Their wooly undercoat traps heat against their bodies and a coarse, heavy duty outer coat made of hollow guard hairs sheds water, snow, wind and everything else that gets thrown at them - keeping them completely dry and warm. They shed their heavy coats come summer and don a lighter, thinner layer for the heat. Believe it or not, the weather in Interior Alaska can get quite hot! While 90 degrees F may not seem that hot to some of you, consider that there’s a 150 degree difference between the coldest temps and hottest temps of the year in parts of Alaska! The color change can help them to blend in with their environment a bit better. So with that explanation- are you ready for some Then and Now Reindeer photos?!
