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!

Day 5 of Iditarod

Smoky and Goblin lead Ryne and the team (total of 13 dogs) out of Ophir checkpoint at 8:25am AKDT. They’ve completed the 24 rest but still must take two mandatory 8 hour rests before the finish line.

Trail breakers have rerouted the trail in order to leave out the Flat. Overflow and excess snow has made it too difficult to break trail and snow machines were getting snuck. The Flat was the 20 mile turnaround loop after the Iditarod checkpoint. Instead, all teams will leave from Iditarod and head back over what they’ve already done.

This is the first time in the race’s 49-year history that the trail won’t finish at Nome. It’s finishing at Deshka Landing. The 2021 path is called the Gold Trail Loop. Since the checkpoints are the same both directions, they often have North or South added to the end, depending if it’s the out or return journey.

The stretch between Ophir and Iditarod is a more empty one; a stretch of miles on miles. There is a mixture of terrain, at least! Black Spruce to barren upland tundra, brush hillsides to frozen lakes. It’s about 80 miles checkpoint to checkpoint.

Enjoy Bowser peeking around Ryne, waiting for some...
