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.

While we stay at home a little longer, our dog wants our attention. When you want some indoor fun with your pup, here are some excellent tips to keep both of your energy levels up!

Obedience and Trick Training

Most likely your dog knows the basic commands of sit, stay and come. However, now is great time to introduce your dog to some new tricks such as roll over, “sit pretty” and high-five. Not only will this provide some great bonding time with your dog, but he will love being rewarded for new behaviors. Repeat the trick multiple of times, and only reward your dog when they perform the trick correctly.

  • Brain Games & Dog Puzzles

Believe it or not, there are puzzles and games available for dogs. These games can range from simple ones that will dispense a treat to more complicated puzzles that require your dog to problem-solve.

  • Scent Games and Hide ‘n Seek

These are an excellent way to keep your dog busy and engaged while indoors. Keep it simple at first and then gradually make it more complicated as your dog learns the game. Basically, you’ll want to start by tossing a few treats onto the floor and just as your dog runs to eat them say “go find it.” Do this several times until he begins to learn the “go find it” command. Once he learns that, you can begin to hide the treats in other places in the house requiring him to sniff and search them out.

  • Tug-o-war

There’s nothing quite like a good game of tug-o-war between you and your pet. It doesn’t require a lot of space but it will tire out your dog in no time. Look for tug toys that are durable and will stand up to the rigorous pulling.

  • Obstacle Course

Obstacle courses are a great way to train and exercise your dog. Of course, you can invest in some portable agility equipment or just build your own using tables, chairs, cushions and other things. Run along the side of your dog during these agility courses to get some of your excess energy out too!

  • Doggie Treadmill

Yes! They really do exist and you can check them out here. If you’re exercising at home, this is a great way to have your dog join you in your own fitness routine. No, they aren’t cheap but they are designed with your dog’s needs in mind and can be a great way to get those daily walks in when you’re unable. Plus, these can be a nice, gentle way for an older dog to stay fit.

These are just a few ideas on how to keep your dog active and engaged during these months indoors. Happy moving!
