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!

Iditarod Ophir to Nikolai

On Friday, the team left Ophir (south for the return journey and 2nd time here) at 2:46pm AKDT. Four and half hours later, they were at it again. When we checked, the team was averaging a solid 8.3mph. Go, Ryne go!

A little night run brought them into McGrath at 12:26am for a slightly longer break of 5 hours and 19 minutes. The temperature was cold here last night and the same was true for the Iditarod team. Cold weather is a mushers friend since dogs tend to run and eat better when they’re not overheated. Ryne left McGrath at 5:45am with 12 dogs.

Plenty of mushers sent a second sled to McGrath. Ryne did this and planned on switching to it. The second sled is light-weight and fast. However, after running over the trail once already, she’s sticking to the DogPaddle that she began the race with. It’s a well-built, robust sled and perfect for keeping control in tough conditions. So, continue to keep your eye out for the Ryno colors of teal and purple that form her sled bag!

6 days, 2 hours, and over 50 minutes into the race. Ryne is currently resting at Nikolai checkpoint. She’s taking her first mandatory 8-hr rest out of two. The dogs and musher alike are soaking in the sun rays....

Tyler and Kelsey, good friends of the kennel, picked up Uno in Anchorage and are loving on her until the end of the race when she’ll join the rest of the team for the return trip home to Two Rivers. She was a “doggy pogo stick.” That’s Uno for you!
