How many is too many? Print E-mail
Monday, 05 June 2017 12:55

We have heard a lot of people - both those with and without a dog of their own - complaining that they find dog walkers (usually professionals) with packs of dogs intimidating.  Even when they are on leads. And it seems that some local authorities are beginning to agree.  Gosport council in Hampshire is imposing a limit of four dogs to one person while Richmond on Thames is reducing its maximum of six to four as well.  Apparently the Kennel Club thinks any sort of limitation is wrong.  But here at the CBC we agree with a limit but even four large dogs such as GSDs, Rottweilers or Leonbergers in the hands of just one person can be a tad unnerving.  What do YOU think?

 
Hot dogs Print E-mail
Friday, 26 May 2017 14:40
It looks as though most of us are going to enjoy a very hot Bank Holiday weekend and apparently thousands are going to hit the roads. Many of those will have the family dog with them in the car so spare a thought for them. The RSPCA are running a hard hitting campaohn asking people to dial 999 if they see a dog in distress in a hot car. Remember: if it's 22C outside it can reach 47C inside the car within only an hour. Spearheading the campaign is Jonathan Theobald who left his three Staffordshire bull terriers to die in his car while he went to the gym last June. Rightly he was prosecuted and banned from keeping dogs. Don't let that be you...
 
Is Valium the answer? Print E-mail
Tuesday, 04 April 2017 12:52

It seems that an increasing number of vets are prescribing Valium for dogs who exhibit anxiety at being left home alone while their owners are at work all day.  Surely this is not the answer? Dogs are naturally sociable animals and so will suffer psychological problems if abandoned for hours at a time, especially if it is on a regular basis.  The answer must be to change the owner's behaviour - rather than dole out medication.  Owning a dog is not a right.  If you cannot look after a dog properly should you own one at all?
