Getting to know your dog through observation

This may sound obvious, but it’s surprising just how many people don’t take the time to just sit and observe their dog. You can learn an awful lot by doing so. It’s interesting to see what makes them tick, and of course it’s a great way to find out what actually interests them as individuals.

Dog vision

Colour perception

Dogs are not completely colour blind, but unlike humans who have three different colour sensitive cone cells in their retina (red, green and blue) dogs have only two (green and blue).

Kennel Cough

If your dog starts to regularly make sounds as though they are trying to clear their throat, it's quite possible that he/she may have a case of kennel cough. Although kennel cough can sound terrible, most of the time it is not a serious condition, and most dogs will recover without treatment.
