Discover Dogs
Just a reminder that Discover Dogs 2017 is being held 10am – 5pm on Saturday, 21 and Sunday, 22 October 2017 at the Excel Centre, London.

This show offers a huge amount of information on the numerous UK dog breeds (just over 200 in the UK currently) and all things dog-related.

Please note, however, that it is sponsored by dog food manufacturer Eukaneba, whose  products do not rate well in comparison to other dog foods – please see the link below for more information on the food from this producer and also the www.allaboutdogfood.co.uk site in general which has very informative articles on canine nutrition and offers a very good critique of most dog food brands available in the UK.

Please don’t accept dog food manufacturer’s clever marketing claims that their dog food is healthy  – check any product ingredients before you consider feeding it to your dog.

Consider a Rescue Dog
Also please consider a rescue dog – there are many breed specific rescue centres as well as the better-known rescue centres.  There are lots of lovely rescue dogs looking for a loving home but please be sure to ask the centre what temperament tests have been carried out and be sure that the dog breed or cross-breed that you choose will suit your home, lifestyle and knowledge of dog ownership – thank you.
