  • Big Dog Moments…

    ...they really make you smile!   If you have one now, or have ever had a big dog in your life, you know there are those moments when they are just big babies or big idiots, or both. But they can also bring a bit of chaos if they aren’t trained well and given enough attention. They really are a bit like a kid-size companion, though usually a lot less maintenance!   Big dogs are funny. They sometimes have no sense of space and will happily try to squeeze in where they just...
  • Fit and Healthy

    A happy dog is a fit and healthy dog   How important is exercise for your four-legged friend? Whether you’ve got a new pup or an old faithful, exercise is vital for your dog’s health and happiness. Walking, running and playing all help your dog stay in good physical shape and can also contribute to better behaviour and a healthier appetite.   How much exercise? Some is always better than none, for most dogs a leashed walk around the block probably isn’t enough,...
  • How to help your cat and dog live together!   Making room in your home for both cats and dogs can be a wonderful experience for everyone. Cats and dogs can learn to live harmoniously together if we carefully set up behaviour parameters for them and make certain they have their own space.     Choose well for good companionship   In the case of kittens and puppies, the job of assimilating them to each other may be relatively straightforward as there is no...
  • Cat Behaviour Explained

    Cat love! How cuddling and patting makes you both well and happy.   Anyone who has a cat (or two) in their life knows they are capable of great affection. It’s been proven that a good cuddle or patting session with your cat is as good for you, as it is for them. It boosts both your endorphins and your furry friend will be calmer and less anti-social. Scientific studies have even proven that the sonic frequency of a purring cat can actually alleviate your physical...

The first thing you need to do is to start looking closely at the labels.

  • We know, as humans, that what we eat impacts our physical health. Cats and dogs are no different. In particular, eating large amounts of processed food can not only deny the body the essential nutrients it requires but also lead to a variety of health issues – for both humans and our four legged companions. Switching to a less processed diet can be relatively straightforward for us but when it comes to our beloved pets, most of us don’t have the time or knowledge to make their food from...
  • On Our Best Behaviour

    At Applaws, we know that natural and nutritious food can provide dogs with real physical benefits. But the relationship between owners and their dogs goes much, much deeper than a than a healthy feeding regime. That’s why we’d like to introduce you to Damian Riley. Damian is a behaviourist and over the next months he will share with us ideas on dog training and behaviour. Insights that will hopefully give us great understanding of why problems can occur with our dogs and how we can go...
  • Dogs and Cats………. Who loves me more?   As February is known as the month of love we were really interested to watch the BBC 2 documentary Cat v Dog which was shown over the last couple of weeks. We all know dogs wear their heart on their paws, and whether you have left the house for 5 minutes or 5 hours they always greet you with the same love, affection and wagging tails. On the other hand a cat may or may not even acknowledge your existence before curling back up to go...
  • Ever been confused by labels on pet food? Us too. That’s why at Applaws we’re fanatical about being open and transparent about what you’ll find in our products. When it comes to our pets, we want to make sure we’re making the right choices to keep them happy and healthy – which means feeding them the right food. But trying to work out what’s best for our pets isn’t easy, especially with the way most pet food is labelled. Many brands simply categorise ingredients into ‘meat’ or...
