We’ve had the worst luck ever trying to find a new groomer for our Saint Bernard after his previous one retired. Nobody would do a dog his size, but happy dogs was more than up for the challenge! Despite being a stubborn boy and quite the challenge, they got him looking like a whole new dog! I’ve never seen him look this good and you can just tell he feels 100 times better! Thank you Happy Dogs!

During summer, a flea control shampoo and a flea rinse should be used. However, this should by no means substitute a proper monthly flea control regime such as Spot-On, Revolution or Frontline. Consult your vet or chat with the RSPCA's friendly vet nurse team for free advice on flea control for your pet. It's important to remember, after the application of flea treatment be sure to wait 24-48 hours before bathing your dog.
As mentioned above, puppies respond well to positive-reinforcement based training. It is important to acknowledge that dogs cannot possibly know which behaviours are right and which are wrong - it will be up to you to teach them. Take the time to show your puppy what you want them to do and reward them with a treat, praise, or a game each time they do the right thing.

Lucky,Leo and Alphie go to Happy Dogs at least once a week. They LOVE it! When we put their collars on, they both head for the car and wait. They know! When I pick them up in the afternoon, they are still wagging their tails. And then once we are home, they crash because they are worn out from all the fun! The staff at Happy Dogs love their four legged friends. Taylor and Lucky have a special bond. Thank You Happy Dogs for being Lucky, Leo and Alphie’s home away from home.
The key method to adopt here is one of positive reinforcement. Firstly, you need to show your pup the area where it should do its business, and each time the pup toilets in the designated area, immediately reward with a treat or verbal praise. In order to prevent mistakes from happening, it is important to both diligently supervise your dog while it is indoors and take it frequently outdoors. This will speed the learning process and prevent any accidents from occurring in the house.
Dogs are social animals that need companionship, so most don’t enjoy being left alone during the day. Being alone for long periods can lead to stress and even separation anxiety, but this can easily be avoided by booking dog care services through Pawshake. Your sitter will keep your pooch happy during the day with plenty of love and belly rubs! As a bonus, your dog will return home tired and happy.
The RSPCA recommends that you do not purchase a dog from markets or places where large numbers of dogs are kept for sale. Dogs sold from these establishments are very rarely examined by a veterinarian, and therefore may not be entirely healthy. Never purchase a puppy that looks unwell and if you are concerned about the welfare of the animal, contact the RSPCA Inspectorate.
