Canine-loving creative types will enjoy the brilliant creations by sculptor Wilfred Wood.

His current exhibition ‘Dogs‘ is running in London displaying Pomeranians to Poodles with exaggerated features. Hilarious, cute and occasionally slightly sinister… you’ll see plenty of familiar faces on show.

Dre the Shar Pei

Dre is a chilled out boy who has been at the shelter for more than 150 days and is hoping to find his furrever home. He is a relaxed and easy going dog who just goes with the flow. Dre is best suited to a mature household with members who have had experience with the Shar Pei breed, in order to understand the temperament as well as the mental and physical requirements of the breed. He is a sweet, older gentleman who is a staff and volunteer favourite at the shelter. Dre is eager to find his new home where he can relax with his family and receive plenty of love and attention. He absolutely loves cuddles and lots of pats. His favourite thing is treats which make him very happy and obedient. Dre enjoys the company of people and would prefer to be the only dog in his new home so he can be pampered and treated like a prince. A variety of toys and boredom busters such as Kongs or treat balls will be great to keep him mentally stimulated and occupied during the times he is left on his own. A secure yard with 5ft fencing will be great for him to play in as well as keep him safe while he is outside.

Launch of puppy raising tutorials

Congratulations to our friends at Montignie Stuart Kennels on the launch of their online puppy raising tutorials! The video series educates beginner to intermediate level dog owners on the often tricky task of raising a puppy.

The series was filmed over 12 months and follows the life of one puppy as she is moulded into an amazing little dog. It consists of 28 videos broken into four categories showing all the necessary steps in raising a happy, healthy and social pet.

Subscribers to the site will receive access to all the content right away and they are encouraged to watch the series from the beginning. The series covers choosing a breed all the way through to basic obedience and a few tricks thrown in for fun.  The series is not strictly for puppy owners, rather anyone that is ready to take training of their pet dog up a notch by using a back to basics approach.

MS Kennels is a team effort between Sam Montignie and Pat Stuart. Sam is a highly experienced third generation Military working dog trainer. He is the first Australian Army member to win the service dog trials with his then Police dog Uri. He has spent his entire adult life raising and training puppies for specific purposes. Sam took Pat on as an apprentice of sorts and they have been training dogs together since 2011. With Pats background in training and education their combined effort gives clear and simple explanations with a huge depth of experience and subject knowledge.
