Dogs for the Disabled
It is an inspiration and example to us all that these dogs can, with time and patience, be trained to offer many services for their disabled owners. The hours of patient training result in remarkably talented dogs who can assist in varied ways.
If you are looking to train your puppy to high standards, then time and patience are the first necessities - and maybe a good book or course to help would be an ideal investment. [Check out the links in our margin for the best available courses - with free trial lessons - or our book link for recommendations.]
Dogs for the Disabled is a charity and does vital work... Peter Purves, Wendy Richard MBE, Dr Roger Mugford and Anthea Turner are supporters.
The new vice-patron is Brian Blessed a star of stage, TV, and film, and also well known for his adventures, including climbing Everest. Next March he will join in a sponsored trek starting at the Dead Sea and travelling to the city of Petra.

Choose the right breed of puppy - terrestial TV to your aid!
There has been coverage of Crufts. We have had the excellent show presented by Julian Clary... The Underdog Show.
Also there was a most interesting programme about a couple of 'problem' dogs. Two breeds were featured the Bearded Collie and a Bloodhound.
The dogs in question were 'problem' dogs - basically they were probably not suited to the lifestyle they were forced to live and could have been bored! This helps point out the vital importance of choosing the right breed for your lifestyle... see link at the bottom of this post.
Once these dogs were taken on by dog trainers who trained them for what the breed is naturally adapted to do... they not only became well behaved, but they also became interested and competent at their jobs. As a bloodhound, and a collie/sheepdog!
The next date for your diary is I believe 16th July when Matt Baker [of Blue Peter fame] and Selina Scott [triumphant in the Underdog Show with Chump] will start a new show which aims to help people find the ideal rescue dog [or puppy] for their particular lifestyle.
This all points out most clearly that whilst different lifestyles suit different people, so different breeds of dog need different lifestyles to suit their inbred needs!
Let's hope that terrestial TV can set up some brilliant partnerships - and that it will inform those who are looking to have a puppy, or re-home a dog, a little about the very different requirements of some of the various dog breeds.
For those who want further (and extremely useful) information on choosing the right puppy for your lifestyle, here is a link to Discover Dogs... with loads of varied info and dates for your diary... from The Kennel Club.

Summer Hints and Tips
Heat in the form of hot sunny days can be a source of pleasure and joyous outings with your puppy... but it can also be a breeding ground for pests and diseases, not to mention the problem of heat stroke.
Here I am not preaching about the heat in cars, though if you even fleetingly think of leaving your pet in the car for 5 minutes... I want you to try just one thing first... adjust the windows as you would for leaving your pet, park your car and just sit there, you won't believe how hot it will become in just a short period of time.
Now that you know for yourself how hot it becomes... please, please, please, start preaching about the problem to everyone you know - so that they too can start preaching the message.
Personally, already this year, I have had to report one instance of a dog being left in a car. Luckily the outcome was OK. Maybe someone else has learned this serious message.
Besides this, even out in the sun and doing everything 'according to the book' heat stroke can strike down even dogs in their prime - so be especially careful.
Also remember that disease spreads more rapidly in the heat, there is the problem of flies too... and fleas and ticks. And don't forget the dangers that rivers, ponds, and lakes pose to both pets and their owners who go in after them to save them.
Enjoy your summer!

Puppy Potty Training, or housetraining your puppy
If you want a simple written and downloadable guide, just refer to the link in our margin and check it out,or just Click Here! for... 'How to housetrain any Dog'
On the other hand, take your cues from your puppy's behaviour... study him or her intently for a day, see what they do when they want to go!
The obvious thing to do is to take them outside and use your chosen 'word' after they have had a meal or a drink... and as soon as they perform use loads of praise and maybe a treat as well to reinforce the message!
Sorry, when you first get them home, they will probably need to go in the night too... if at all possible take them to your chosen place and use your chosen 'word'. Broken nights won't last too long!
And last, but probably MOST importantly, never get cross or punish them for any mishaps.
