Meet the Paddington Pups Team

Meet the Paddington Pups Team 

Neil – Doggy Daycare Manager.

Neil, pictured here with his much loved Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Nimbus (his favourite breed of dog) absolutely loves working with dogs. He joined the team after hearing about how great Paddington Pup’s is from a friend who worked with us.

Neil also soon found that he loved working at Paddington Pups and the dogs here loved him too. His dog, Nimbus now has a whole team of people at Paddington Pups to give her cuddles and so many dog friends.  You can see from their smiles that they are very happy members of the team here at Doggy Daycare.

Neil works so well with the dogs and due to his excellent organisational, dog care and people skills has recently been promoted as a manager at Paddington Pups.

Team training at Paddington Pups

We’re always learning and honing our skills!

At Paddington Pups we believe highly trained staff make for happier, safer dogs and that is what we are in this business to make. Pet first aid training and dog trainer training is just some of the expertise we want the Team at Paddington Pups to have. In December we engaged in fire safety training to ensure that our team knows what to do in the event of a fire emergency. Knowing where fire safety equipment is located, how to use extinguishers, high-pressure fire reel hoses and evacuation routes were all important parts of our training. We will be completely honest though it was a bit of fun getting to play with learn how to use the fire extinguishers.

Keeping your dogs cool on the hotter days

 

 

Coming into January and February the weather can get extremely hot and humid. A lot of the time we can have trouble keeping ourselves cool so imagine our little fury friends. Unlike us, dogs only sweat from a very small area of their body and it’s their feet. Dogs tend to find it much harder to cool down than we do so why not do something for your dog to keep them cool during the hot months.

 

Splash pools: Getting a small tub or one of the half clam shells from Bunnings or toy stores is a great way to cool your pups down. On a really hot day fill it up with water and let your dogs have a great time splashing about and swimming. Even just getting out the hose and giving them a good soak will help them keep cool.
