General care

General care

We all love our dogs and want to do the very best to keep them happy and healthy. Having a dog in your life also brings responsibilities and if you are thinking of buying a dog, you need to weigh up the time and commitment involved. Our dogs are protect under the law within the Animal Welfare Act 2006 which means that anyone caring for a dog, even temporarily, has a duty to care for him or her properly. The Act covers the five welfare needs of our animals, which are the:

  • need for a suitable environment
  • need for a suitable diet
  • need to be able to exhibit normal behaviour patterns
  • need to be housed with, or apart, from other animals
  • and the need to be protected from pain, suffering, injury and disease.
