Summer Clean with FURminator and COCO Clean

Fur…everywhere…. And Sand! Groan!! For real! My dog should be bald I’ve brushed him that much and that often & I’m sure my poor vacuum cleaner has ¾’s of the beach in it…. Summer beach fun and shedding or shedding full stop does my head in! My family keeps telling me it’s my fault for getting a dog that sheds… I wouldn’t change my boy for the world but sheesh, the snotty nose and red eyes that come with brushing him as well as all the white fur all over eve...

Do you have a Backyard Baby?

I love mud. Grubby fingers. Mushy gunky chunks in my hands squeezing between my fingers. I love the feeling. I love how it all comes from my backyard and how I have taken care of my own waste. I love how it has become magic mud in my Backyard Baby (Compost) and not a preserved banana in landfill. For days and days, our indoor compost container has been full. With a bit of force and luck I have been able to squeeze down a bit more. I also started making new containers to put the scraps in. But wi...

Why is my Dog not eating?

Will you just eat the food! C’mon, I know it’s not steak but it’s good, I mean it smells funky to me but you like that right?? What if I add some gravy….you’re not meant to just lick the gravy off….sigh.. Sheesh! What is the go with my dog? Did I get a dud one? Is he broken? Why does he refuse to eat his food? This was a question that I had to ask my Vet, all the while my sweet little Dudley was scoffing the liver treats like I had starved him forever… way to guilt t...

The Grass Can Be Greener...

Ok, so when you hear “Honey, I think there is something seriously wrong with the dog” said in a very serious “grown up” voice, like every other fur-parent…I PANIC!! What’s wrong with the dog! I yell as I run passed my husband at warp-9 only to be greeted by a happy, tail waggy retriever that’s kinda looking at me, going “what’s up Hooman? Is it dinner time yet?” So, I do the check over: paws, tail, head (and get a massive wet kiss for my efforts…bleh, thanks)&hell...

Say Hello to No More Stinky Dog Breath

Sunny, Sunday morning ... the birds chirp away and the waves roll in and out. You can really feel that this is shaping up to be a great day.As the clock strikes 6:15, the whole family have one by one gathered in the big bed throughout the night. Maxine, the cheeky French Bulldog is not far behind. In fact, that naughty little pup has been snoring loud at the bottom of the bed for a good couple of hours now, waking us all up.   Ahhh…what’s better than morning cuddles with the entire...

Why is Air Dried Pet Food So Good?

We’ve recently started offering the Isle of Dogs air dried food range for cats and dogs. One of our early testers described it as like cocaine for pets - they go nuts for it.  Pure and Wholesome dog Sid loves it so much we have to keep the bags in a separate room he can’t get into! Nutritionally air dried food is one of the best foods you can give to your pet, it is almost always made from extremely high quality, whole ingredients …. but it’s pricey. So why do we spend extra o...

How to Compost Little Genie Biodegradable Disposable Nappies

Our Little Genie compostable nappies and nappy pants are some of our most popular products.  They are popular because they are safer for babies and toddlers as they don’t contain nasty ingredients found in other mainstream disposable nappy brands, but also because they are sustainably made, compostable and much, much better for the environment than sending truckloads of conventional disposable nappies to a landfill....

Nina Ottosson Dog Puzzles and Toys with hidden treats - new in!

We've just received our first delivery of our Nina Ottosson puzzles and toys for dogs.  They are world famous, created in Sweden by Nina herself in the belief that dogs need mental as well as physical exercise. If they lack mental stimulation, they can sometimes create their own “fun”, like chewing on things, barking or hyperactive behaviour. These games are designed to stimulate a dog’s brain and reinforce it’s relationship with people. Each design demands mental as well as physica...

How To Care For Your First Kitten or Puppy

I have vivid memories as an eight year old going to chose my new kitten. Selecting her from the litter was easy as she was the most playful, social, black and white bundle of fluff. I named her Panda on the spot and she snuggled under my shirt on the ride home. I was to be her new carer, provider and protector and from that day we shared a special bond. Everyday after school I would sprint home from the bus stop in anticipation of seeing my new little friend. Caring for Panda gave me good c...

Tools and Treatments for Pet Shedding

We’ve been traveling for over 10 years and we didn’t have a pet for all of that time.  One of the first things we did after we settled into our own home back in NZ was to head to the SPCA and collect a big old cat called Phoebe. We had missed having any pets while we were away and it is nice seeing how this furry creature happily settles into our day to day life.  There are two things we haven’t enjoyed about having a cat though - the fur that accumulates on couches and beds as P...

Ten Tips On How To Take Great Photographs Of Your Pet

I was asked to contribute a blog for this site.  Someone came up with the idea of doing one about taking pet photos.  Heads nodded (not mine) and then fingers were pointed (not mine) in my direction. I guess I was a more obvious choice than my husband who would rather poke himself in the head with a fork than discuss photography.  So here I find myself writing a blog about taking a pet photo.  There is a wealth of technical information on the internet already, put there by cl...
