Buy hypoallergenic food for your dog

(Burns Pet Food)
Does your dog have a problem they just can’t shake? Itchy skin, tummy troubles and bad odours could all be signs that your dog has a sensitivity or intolerance. Your sensitive pooch will be pleased to know that Burns produces simple, high quality pet food that’s been specifically developed for dogs with allergies and intolerances. Burns Sensitive is a high quality, hypoallergenic dog food range formulated without ingredients that commonly cause intolerances, such as artificial colours, flavours and preservatives, as well as wheat, and dairy. Available in several delicious varieties, Burns gets even the most sensitive tails wagging for dinner time.

Use a Front Clip Harness to Prevent Pulling on Leash. If your dog pulls on his leash get a harness that clips in the front. The harnesses that clip on the back promote more pulling. And when you’re working on leash manners ditch the retractable leash for a regular 6 foot one so your dog can get the feeling of what loose leash walking means.
