Canine News Update September 2013

Living near the Notting Hill Carnival - I am happy to say the annual event went really well and the clean up was very efficient!! Chelsea my jack russell was VERY disappointed that the street cleaners did their job so thoroughly - NOT a chicken bone in sight!!!

Also Great news - Tessa the lost seven month old romanian dog was found after two weeks AND before Carnival which was a great relief to her fosterers, her rescue and myself and Niz Khan  - Rob of K9 Kennels and Amanda who spent many hours and days putting out flyers - and walking the streets of Holland Park W11 trying to find her.

Buster a ten year old senior King Charles was adopted by a lovely senior lady who had lost her own dog a year ago and I saw Buster on All Dogs Matter Rescue website  (a great rescue that deal both with  dogs and owners with kindness and tlc) - It was an ideal adoption for two lonely seniors!!!

I am working with Winnie a four month gorgeous labrador  and would melt any man's heart but unfortunately is running rings around her owner!! We are doing a few follow up sessions and meeting again next week - after more doggy homework!! I did see a great improvement today so her owner is really working hard!!!

Sadly I met up with one of my star pupil's owner last week and was told that Cedar the ten year old German Shepherd had passed away.  Cedar was a beautiful girl that was crowned 'Best in Show' at the Maida Vale Dog Show 2012 and she will never be forgotten - such a gentle sociable dog.  RIP Cedar

Dog Socialising Classes commence on 14th September 2013 in the dog area of Queens Park Gardens W10 - places still available for the 2.pm - 3pm class for Adult dogs.

One last thought the weather is still warm and while that is great for us - it can be too much for our furry friends and our wildlife - if out walking make sure to take plenty of water for your dog - also leaving water out for the wildlife (ie. squirrels - birds ) in your garden.  Don't leave your pet in the garden alone, outside a shop AND NEVER IN A CAR UNATTENDED (cars are like ovens within minutes)

Enjoy the weather, Enjoy your pets and keep them safe!
