Kygo.

Young Kygo has been with us for just over a fortnight and what a woofing, wonderful whirlwind it has been! Prior to Kygo coming home, we had a fair few doggies through the doors of our Nero B&B so I had plenty of practice establishing the common house rules and boundaries. Addressing different breeds with […]

By encouraging him to use his nose and learn ‘doggy […]

There are all kinds of reasons dog owners decide to keep their four-pawed partners on a lead – from a previous […]

Bark in the Park.
