Being ex strays my girls really wolf down their food just in case they don’t get anything the next day. They aren’t so bad these days, they’ve got used to getting fed the right amount then getting a little top up in their bowls in the evenings. They will always try to get extra, and Freya used to hide treats and biscuits under the sofa for later. Nearly a month ago I started Freya and Doris on Tails dog food*, you tell them about your hound – weight, breed, health concerns and favourite meat flavours – they custom make the right food mixture for your hound. This means although Freya and Doris are very similar they have different food tailored to suit each of them.
During the Easter holidays my hounds had a few new treats and toys. Lots of toys and treats from Pet Face. I hadn’t heard of this company before but I must say I like the products. The rubbery “crystal” toy is a favourite with Freya. It has a strong bung you shove in the bottom of the crystal, that smells a bit like marmite. She’s been trying super hard to get it but only manages to nibble away tiny pieces so far. Whilst the rubber toy is fine this bung is a bit worse for wear, but PetFace were kind enough to even send refills for it.
It should come as no surprise to regular readers of this blog that I adore my dog. Well Freya Woof hates the cold, and being a Saluki she really is not built to cope with the cold weather. She certainly lets us know when she is cold too, dragging her bed so it’s in front of the newly fitted fireplace or burying herself underneath Jen’s duvet with her head on a teddy. She is such a big baby. Well there are things you can do to help out chilly hounds. Coats and jumpers are the easiest way, but not all dogs like them. You could always put a hot water bottle under your hounds bed, blanket or basket but these don’t stay warm very long. Don’t fret, PetShopBowl has you covered. They sell something called Snugglesafe* which is good for bunnies, cats, dogs and lots of other pets – Microwave it […]
This week Freya Woof has been trying out Hills Ideal Balance dog food courtesy of PetShop. After a slow change from her normal food to Hills I can confirm the woofer hound likes the “chicken and brown rice” variety of Hills ideal balance dry food. The food is in the form of lots of small circular shape biscuits. It looks a bit boring, all the same colour and size. Her usual brand Wagg is all different shapes and colours but it turns out Freya is not bothered by the shapes or colours.
Do you watch Dragons Den? Then you might have heard of Doddle for dogs. It is a great idea, and I am amazed it has not been done before now. It is a dogs collar with a built in retractable lead (leash) on it. This means it is a normal collar when it’s not walkies o’clock and a matching lead and collar set when it is.
Freya Woof is a lucky little hound. She is one of the first Waggers in the country to try Wagg’s new dog food. It hits the shops from tomorrow. She loves Wagg food and treats but sometimes gets bored and fancies a change so we have been mixing her normal dry Wagg food with half a tin or carton of wet dog foods for a month or two. So what will Freya think of this new munch?
