Angels together…

Breed Profile

Amazing Akitas!

Large dogs with mesmerising oriental eyes, quiet but intelligent, Akitas form excellent companion animals. An Akita named Hachiko became immortal after he patiently waited at the railway station for his master to return for almost 10 years, oblivious of the fact that his master had died when he was at work. A statue of Hachiko still greets everybody at the Shibuya Station in Japan.

Summer delight!

Angels Together Summer’s here! The kids can’t wait for the vacations to start, and parents wish they’d never. It’s all fine when the kids come back after a tiring day at school, but how do you match their energy levels when they are unbridled from the burdens of a taxing day at school. Time for Juno, the family dog, to jump in and take matters into his paws.


Observe carefully!

Prevention is always better than cure… you can determine the health condition of your pooch at your home…merely by observation. Here’s how to do so.

Flea allergy: what a pet parent must know

Fleas are cosmopolitan ectoparasites with a large variety of hosts. For companion animals and humans, Cat flea (Ctenocephalides felis) and dog flea (Ctenocephalides canis) represent the most important species worldwide. Apart from causing flea allergy dermatitis (FAD), the ability of fleas to function as vectors for disease pathogens, such as Rickettsia & Bartonella spp. bacteria, Dipylidium caninum (dog tape worm) and some viral pathogens is gaining attention.

Pawsome secrets unravelled!!

An holistic approach is to look at the underlying cause of a behaviour or training problem by looking at the whole-istic health issues of the dog, physically and mentally. In the last issue, we discussed diet, health, bodywork, relationships and communication. Here are a few more factors that affect the dog on a daily basis.

Toys – not just a play thing

A dog’s behaviour is influenced by the games he plays as a puppy. A game is a structured activity, undertaken for enjoyment and also used as an educational tool. Games are played with toys, which are important to develop character, skills, creativity, security and social acceptability. Here are more on different types of toys available. Health ›
