More serious cases of diarrhoea by Steve Dean Last week, AVV described the typical ‘upset stomach’ that dogs frequently suffer, especially during autumn. The environment at this time of year is awash with decomposing vegetation, fruit or fungus, as well as other people’s discarded detritus...
PawTrax – In Collar tracker by Geraldine Cove-Print IT IS amazing how many people think that the identity microchip in a dog can track their moves. It really doesn’t, a microchip is the size of a grain of rice and it holds a number, that’s it.
This week's Dog World Comment OBVIOUSLY, the dog world and the way it is organised and governed is in the grand scheme of things a rather small part of life in general. Nevertheless for those seriously involved in it, it often becomes a very important part of their lives...
In the Dog House by Simon Parsons NO DOUBT many breeds have enthusiasts who feel strongly about breed type and the direction in which their breed is progressing.
Overseas success by Simon Parsons I’M DELIGHTED to report two prestigious successes for British owned and bred dogs at big specialties on the Continent, proving that they can compete on equal terms with, and indeed, beat dogs bred in their native countries.

The charm of the lurcher by Geraldine Cove-Print The only hounds I have ever owned have been the horizontally blessed Dachshunds, but I can see why so many people love the hound breeds, there is such a variety of shapes, sizes and coat textures.
