Do you have blogs that you like to follow? Well obviously, in addition to this one! There are various ones that I like to check in with regularly, and I thought I'd share some with you.
Paula Terifaj is a ground breaking veterinarian who tells it like it is. Her website is full of the helpful advice you really need to know, and her blog, Dog Breath, is outspoken and informative. Here's a link to a post of hers entitled Is Your Vet Telling The Truth? Three Top Veterinary Myths Exposed. Paula also has books on offer on some of the most confusing areas of dog ownership - vaccination, feeding, and solving the mystery of your itchy dog. You can hear Paul in several DogCast Radio episodes, most recently in Episode 77, talking about how you can save money at the vet's.
Nick Jones is a dog trainer I met through DogCast Radio, and you can hear his great advice for a listener - and me - in Episode 35. His blog has some excellent training tips. Nick is committed to improving relationships between owners and dogs, and has some easy steps you can take to ensure you are giving your dog the right signals. We have recently added many articles written by Nick covering general leadership issues, to lead related problems, to how modern lifestyles affect pet dogs.
If you're more stirred by the visual than the verbal, then visit Uschi the Weimaraner's blog. I have long admired the photos Uschi's talented owner posts here which vary from breath taking to cute, and give a good insight into Uschi's life. If rescue dogs are your passion then visit Alfie's Heart blog. Alfie needed expensive medical treatment and was lucky to end up in his rescuer Emma's home; he shares his home with many other rescues.
For a blog with a difference - this one's actually written by the dog himself - try Labrador Randolph's blog - The Intelligent Dog’s Guide To A Troubled World. Randolph is the author and star of A Dog About Town, A Dog Among Diplomats, and, coming soon, A Dog At Sea. Randolph is a charming and sympathetic hero, though far better read than I.
Take care and happy reading,
