Introducing a second dog to the house
The only thing better than sharing your life with a dog is sharing your life with two dogs! Having two dogs can mean double the love, fun and general all-round good time that having one dog is - but it means at least double the work, and the initial stages take a lot of thought and vigilance.
How you introduce two dogs can have an influence on their relationship, so we talked to trainer Lyn Richards to find out the right way of going about things.
Get it right and you'll help your dogs hit it off from the start - Lyn tells us just how and where to bring a new puppy into an older dog's life with the minimum of upset to both. Check out Lyn's site, Dog Logic.
Crufts 2007 part 2
We continue our coverage of Crufts.
We talk to the tallest and smallest of the hounds, some striking utility and toy dogs, plus we find out some tricks of the trade! What treats help show dogs perform at their best, and how do you keep a white show dog white?
Crufts - the opposing view
Not everyone was full of praise for Crufts. UK magazine Dogs Today hit the headlines for daring to criticise the most well established dog show in the world.
To get the truth behind the headlines we talk to Dogs Today editor and publisher, Beverley Cuddy. When you hear the arguments Beverley puts forward you may just be surprised, listen and make up your own mind.
To get in touch with Dogs Today check out their website.
In Puppy Playtime we have a great Nintendo DS game that budding vets will love to try their hand at.
