Okay, we’re not scientists here. We sell dog beds. That doesn’t stop us from enjoying articles claiming ‘studies show’… when it comes to reasons why dogs are the best kind of pet, though. We all know that dogs are considered man’s best friend because they’re extremely loyal and smart, but an article published earlier this week claims that they’re so much more than that and here’s why…
Apparently the chances of childhood asthma are reduced significantly if there’s a dog in the family home –why we’re not sure but the article claims that a Swedish study found strong correlations between children with asthma and those who don’t who own dogs.
Wales are rolling out a new policy as of April next year, calling for all dog owners to microchip their pets or face a fine to the potential tune of £500. Policies similar to this one in Wales are being rolled out also across England and Scotland too. Owners will be committing an offence if they fail to get their dogs chipped after the age of 8 weeks, and this move has a widespread backing from the police and the RSPCA amongst others.
The move has been introduced in the hope that it will deter theft of dogs, a crime which has seen a sharp increase in recent years, and also improve dog owner’s responsibility when it comes to their pet’s behaviour and health. It also is hoped that the chips will make it possible to trace diseases from dog to dog back to the original source of infection, in order to control the spread.
It’s also possible that this new policy will make for responsible breeding and selling and encourage good ownership.
What are your thoughts? Are your pets already chipped? Do you think this will improve ownership? Have you had a bad experience with a dog owner and discovered their pet wasn’t chipped? Or have you found a lost pet and struggled to locate the owner?

All that space without their littermates can be a very big and scary place to a puppy. Crates offer quiet sanctuary.
Make puppy's crate as comfy as possible with one of our supersoft dog beds and some of our cosy bedding and place it just outside your bedroom door.
Place something with the familiar scent of his mother in his crate if possible, as puppy experiences the world with his nose. Our blankets are also great for having something to include with the scent of your puppy's new family members on to help him get used to you.
Fill a hot-water bottle with warm water; cover it well in a towel or one of our blankets. It's a great substitute for the warm body of puppy's mum. A ticking clock can mimic a comforting heartbeat to your puppy.
Make sure any bathroom needs are taken care of and make an effort to tire puppy out so that he is ready for a sleep.
Wait until your puppy is in a relaxed state before closing the door of the crate. A blanket placed over the top to three sides will make it extra den-like and cosy.
Your puppy is likely to whine as it is possibly their first night on their own and in unfamiliar surroundings, so it is natural for them to be a little upset.
Resist the temptation to go to the puppy or take it out of the crate. Give it chance to 'self soothe'.
As with a newborn baby, the disturbed sleep doesn't last forever. Before long you will be watching your little fella taking himself to his crate because he's a little sleepy head and he'll stay in his safe and cosy crate all night without a whimper <3
