Owning a dog is great fun and immensely rewarding. But, dogs have complex needs and each dog is unique. There is no one ‘perfect’ way to care for all dogs, but our expert advice will help you ensure your dog is healthy and happy.

There are approximately eight and a half million dogs kept as pets in the UK. But, did you know that 8 out of 10 dogs suffer from separation anxiety when left alone? If not, you’re not alone as it’s estimated that half of owners don’t realise.

Dogs have an incredibly well-developed sense of smell, far superior to humans.

At certain frequencies, dogs can detect sounds up to four times quieter than humans can hear.

Dogs can also hear in ultrasound, which is sound with a frequency greater than the upper limit of human hearing.

Dogs can see better than humans in dark and dim light.

Dogs use a range of methods to communicate

Communication is very important in helping dogs form and maintain social groups.

To transmit scent information, dogs use urine, faeces and secretions from special scent glands.

Dogs produce a range of sounds, often in complex combinations, including whines, whimpers, growls, barks and howls.

Many dogs can use their body, face, tail, ears and limbs to communicate with other dogs.
