Preparing your dog for annual celebrations


Annual celebrations are a special occasion for many people, whether its birthdays, anniversary, Easter, Halloween or Christmas. Your dog needs to be prepared for a change to the house.

Many houses are decorated in balloons, scary hanging ghosts and Christmas trees, which is all abnormal to see for your dog.

A Dog's Journey with their Dog Walker

Here I’m going to take you on a couple of journeys of the dogs who have started with me and still walk with me regularly.

I’m going to share a couple of homemade tasty dog treats that I've made and have been tried and tested by Coastal Canine’s very own Robbie (The Staffordshire Bull Terrier). These were then double taste tested by the Robbie’s friends at work and they got the paws up from them too.
