Here’s to a happy 2021

In spite of the continuing Covid rules, the New Forest is a lovely place to live. The cold weather might be bracing, but all doggy people know how to wrap up warm! Take care and stay safe.

The Dog Training College

I was recently recommended this site for general information. They have lots of resources for dog owners and professionals, such as courses and free webinars on all sorts of topics.  I have added a link to their website.

Another season begins

Apparently it's now officially autumn and it's lovely to see some of the trees in the New Forest beginning to change their colours. Dogs don't seem to notice, but they certainly like walking through the leaves that have fallen down. So almost time for wellies and coats again!

Dogs love summer!

It's so lovely to see dogs enjoying the sunny weather. I've been walking in some shady parts of the New Forest, such as the Ober Water Walk which follows the river under the trees.

Coming out of lockdown

I am pleased to say that, during lockdown, I was able to help some keyworkers by looking after their dogs.  New Forest District Council is now allowing Home Dog Boarding to get back to normal, which is great news for us all.

Spring has arrived

It's so lovely to see the buds and flowers getting going in our gardens. As the weather has improved and the clocks go forward soon to give us longer days, I have some fun agility equipment and a paddling pool which are always popular and are really useful to entertain the doggies while we all have to stay at home.

Coronavirus

New Forest District Council has instructed me that I am able to only care for dogs whose owners are keyworkers for the foreseeable future. I am happy to help these valuable colleagues at this difficult time. I hope everyone stays well and that your furry friends give you lots of cuddles and love.

Dogs and weather!

Dogs and weather!

There is so much standing water in the New Forest at the moment that waterproof clothing is still the daily choice. Of course, most dogs don't mind what the weather is and at least once they're wet they can't get any wetter! But daffodils are starting to flower so spring is on its way.

Shallowmead Nursery

Here's another dog-friendly place to take your dog. It is a nursery with a beautifully landscaped garden and tree fountain, along with Mabel's café which allows dogs inside. It is a couple of miles north of Lymington and highly recommended! See my links for their website address.

Happy New Year

Not only is 2020 a new year and a new decade, but also JB Dog Care's 10th anniversary! It's such a pleasure giving my guests a New Forest holiday and I'm looking forward to another busy year of dogginess!
