A Refreshing Summer Treat For Your Dog

Can Dogs Eat Watermelon? They certainly can. Most dogs love watermelon, and it's a great thirst quenching treat for them on a hot summers day. Watermelon is actually a really healthy treat to give to your dog, but don't let them eat the seeds or the rind, just in case it causes a blockage. Not only does it help stop them from becoming dehydrated - watermelon is 92% water - it also contains amino acids, antioxidants and vitamiins, and is a good source of lycopene (good for heart and bone health).

Dog Talk With.....Hayley Jepson - By Hayley

We had a chat with Hayley from By Hayley to find out about her and the business.   Why did you start your business? I first started my business as I was trying to purchase some matching scrunchies for my sports team one day and I found that there were no affordable ones. So I started to create these scrunchies myself and which eventually led to creating other products such as dog bandanas, tote bags and headbands.   How long ago and how? I started my business in February 2019 mainly using Instagram to sell my products, which has now progressed...

Dog Talk With.....Adam McDonald - Personalised Pet Collars

We had a chat with Adam from Personalised Pet Collars to find out about him and the business.   Why did you start your business? I actually wasn't the founder of Personalised Pet Collars, we purchased it from my in-laws Richard and Julie in 2017 when they wanted to retire from day to day work. We only wanted the business for the ecommerce potential and they only wanted to do weekend markets, so we structured the deal around that and the rest is history. How long ago and how?
