  • Forest Holidays

    dog forest holidays

    We have just started stocking the Forest Holiday Group with WildWash products. For those of you that have not heard of Forest Holidays before, they offer fantastic escapes to a luxury self-catering woodland cabin in 9 beautiful locations all over the UK. It makes the perfect getaway for families, couples and groups of friends. The best thing of all is that you are welcome to take your dog!

    You can pack your days with action and adventure, hiring bikes or trying your hand at canoeing, archery or a range of other pre-bookable activities. Or perhaps you prefer to luxuriate with a glass of champagne in your own private hot tub under a starlit sky, soaking up the serenity of the forest around you or enjoying a soothing in-cabin spa treatment. The freedom, the fresh air and the forest are yours to enjoy at your own pace, whatever the season.

    I have been using the Flea and Bug Spray this weekend. Horses smelt wonderful and no flies or midges, yay!

    We have also had a lovely review from Geraldine Cove-Print for Dog World.

    “So did the shampoo work? If you are used to masses of suds to make you think the product is working you are going to be disappointed that there is minimum froth, but that’s a good thing! That means the freaky chemicals that beguile us in other everyday products are not included; don’t worry, this shampoo does cleanse and condition and the aroma is gorgeous. I walk my pack through heathland and forestry and this time of year it is a pleasure ground for fleas and ticks looking for a walking buffet, what can I say? We remain flea free and ticks R not Us. It may be that the combination of the shampoo and the Flea and Bug Repellent available as a spray is the most effective because I did use both products for well over six weeks. Now you might be forgiven in thinking the spray and shampoo have identical ingredients, not so, Wildwash has come up with a powerful concoction using the ancient ‘living fossil’ of horsetail which has light defusing properties to brighten the coat along with nettle that has a reputation when used externally to clear dandruff and clear oily hair as well as helping the hair shaft to become smooth to better reflect the light, so no scurf and shiny too.”

  • Pepper’s Puppies

    We are so excited to report that Pepper has had her puppies!

    Just to fill you in on what you have missed up till now! Pepper was mated with the wonderful Loki, a very handsome French Bulldog owned by www.dezinerbullz.co.uk

    over 63 days ago and we were lucky enough to be expecting 4 puppies. French Bulldogs are renowned for not being able to give birth naturally (big head, small body!), so she was booked in for a C section on day 62. I bought a fabulous whelping box from http://www.warwickwhelpingboxes.co.uk/ . Diane from Warwick was so incredibly knowledgeable and helpful and we went with the delux version with a separate pen (not cheap but Pepper needed the best!) So, I thought I was set.

    But no! Pepper decided to go into labour on the evening of day 59. Completely unexpected and our emergency vets thought when I called them at 4am in the morning in a panic, that we would be better to wait until she was actively pushing before we brought her in. So, we waited.

    I was still waiting at 8am in the morning when it was time to take my kids to school. We decided my husband should take the kids to school and I stayed with Pepper, at which point she started pushing. I found myself carless and You Tubing French Bulldogs giving birth!

    It all looked quite straight forward, so I stopped panicking. Then the first pup got stick, so I started panicking all over again! Luckily my hubby was soon home and we popped her in the car and started driving to the vets. I was very worried we’d lose the pup if I didn’t do something, so I gently tried to help ease the pup out and low and behold, I delivered the first pup in the car, just as we arrived at the vets. She then went on to deliver not 3, but 5 more all naturally. She did absolutely everything she was meant to do and has been the most amazing mother ever since. She had 3 boys; Dude, Punk and Messi and 3 girls; Belle, Blue and Popcorn. Pics below. They really are beauties, we love them all and they all have their own personalities already. Please let me know if you are interested in purchasing a pup and I will let you which ones are available (at the moment my children and husband are convinced they are keeping them all!). In the meantime, we’ll just keep cuddling them!

    I have definitely learnt a lot about puppies and whelping and will put together some notes and advice once we are a bit further along the way. Watch this space!
