Restrained Print E-mail

The Highway Code says that dogs must be "suitably restrained" in cars - ie harnessed, in a carrier/cage or behind a guard.  Now, the comparison website GoCompare says that in the event of an accident some insurers may refuse to pay up if the dog was not restrained.  You have been warned!

 
Walking for Guide Dogs Print E-mail

Barney, an eight year old flat coated retriever, is walking from Lands End to John O'Groats with owners Jos and Bob to raise £2,500 for Guide Dogs.  He set off on March 26 and aims to complete his marathon walk on July 2.  All dog owners are invited to join in and walk at a time and place and distance of their choice - so do go to the charity's website to see how you and your dog can support Barney.  The Canine Behaviour Centre has already registered - and Rosco will be walking to support his fellow flat coat, although not quite so far!

 
Are bitches friendlier than males? Print E-mail
Monday, 11 May 2015 09:41

A team of Swedish researchers think so.  They set 400 pedigree beagles an impossible puzzle: they were presented with three boxes with transparent lids and each containing a biscuit.  The dogs could open two of the boxes but not the third.  The researchers found that bitches were significantly more likely to look to the humans for help, using eye and physical contact.  One possible reason for this gender difference is that it is a side effect of a bitch's natural, nurturing instincts.  Since closely related beagles behaved in a similar fashion, it is likely that there is a genetic basis to this social behaviour.
