An ‘egg-cellent’ time for a new puppy
18th April 2017

Spring is in the air and with Easter approaching April presents the perfect month to introduce a new addition to your family, whether that be a pedigree puppy or a cross breed puppy.

Not only is April a very popular month to purchase a puppy, it is also National Pet Month which aims to raise the awareness of responsible pet ownership.

In its 28th year, National Pet Month is a national celebration which promotes responsible pet ownership amongst thousands of pet owners, and helps to raise funds for pet charities throughout the UK.

Douglas Hall Kennels have a vested interested in the wellbeing of pets, particularly dogs and puppies and fully support National Pet Month. From the beginning of the process, such as selecting the breed of puppy which best suits you and your family, to the after care for your puppy when they arrive home, Douglas Hall Kennels are with you every step of the way. Find out why to choose the best Lancashire Dog Kennels here. In addition to the support you will receive from us, here are National Pet Month’s Top 10 Tips for Responsible Pet Ownership:

  1. Think carefully before getting a pet and learn about its special requirements.
  2. Ensure your pet is sociable and well trained.
  3. Provide a nutritious and well balanced diet.
  4. Provide suitable housing and bedding.
  5. Clean up after your pet and worm it regularly.
  6. Protect against disease. Your vet can provide you with advice.
  7. Prevent unwanted litters and neuter your pet when appropriate.
  8. Groom your pet regularly.
  9. Control your pet and ensure it is properly identified.
  10. Take out pet insurance for dogs, cats, rabbits and horses to cover against unexpected veterinary fees and third party liability.
