Dog Facts… Did you know?

Just in case you’ve got a trivia night coming up, or you like learning something new every day we thought we would share a few fun dog facts.

  • Newfoundland Dogs have a water resistant coats and webbed feet. They were bread to haul fishing nets and to help rescue drowning people.
  • Dogs noses are wet to help them absorb scents. Dogs will lick their noses to sample the scent through their mouth. Dogs sense of smell is 10 000 to 100 000 times stronger than humans.
  • Dalmatian Puppies are born with white coats and develop their spots as they age.

Health Info for your dog – GDV

Health Info for your Dog – Gastric Dilatation Volvulus (GDV)

GDV, or more commonly known as Bloat, is an extremely serious condition and is a leading cause of death in dogs. While the Veterinary Industry mostly does not know the causes of Bloat/GDV what the causes of Bloat/GDV are, knowing the following signs and symptoms of Bloat and getting medical attention for your dog without delay may well save his or her life.

Gastric Dilatation- Volvulus (GDV) is a life-threatening condition in which, for reasons not well known or understood, food and gases cause a dog’s stomach to stretch to many times its normal size.  This causes the stomach to twist between 180 and 360 degrees, closing off the entry and exit to the stomach.

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.

Is Your Dog In The Healthy Weight Range

Is your Dog in the Healthy Weight Range?

It may be a lot more important for you to ensure that your dog’s weight stays in the healthy weight range than you realise. While there might be the occasional thing eaten off the floor, the majority of our dog’s food is given to them by us, their owners, so making sure that our dog’s weight remains healthy falls to us and what we feed them.  The first step is knowing what a healthy weight is for your dog.

Dogs come in different breeds and mixes of breeds so knowing what the healthy weight range is for your dog can be a bit tricky. While a Chihuahua should definitely weigh less than a Beagle, how much less should it weigh? If your dog is female should she weigh more or less than a male of the same breed?

Doggy Holidays Now Boarding at Paddington Pups

Doggie Holidays Now Boarding at Paddington Pups!

After looking at the options and standards available for boarding in the Brisbane area and across Australia, the need for a better option became so evident that the decision was made to introduce boarding at Paddington Pups.

So, you may well be wondering what is so wrong with a typical Boarding Kennels to prompt this?

At almost all boarding kennels dogs are kept in small runs, rooms, kennels or pens (we will just call them enclosures), sometimes with other dogs, sometimes by themselves. This might be ok if it were just for sleeping, but in most cases, this is for at least 20 hours a day, every day. At peak times, a lot of boarding kennels cannot guarantee that your dog will be taken out of this area at all.

There is no time guaranteed with people for pats or play, or cuddles, ... Click here to read more....
