Fabulous five!

It’s celebration time again…as we celebrate our 5th anniversary, the only thing which comes Editorialto our mind is – “Forever Yours”.

Since time immemorial, our dogs have always stood by us, irrespective of who we are, what we do, where we live, etc. They just understand one simple language of love and they love us wholeheartedly. Every issue of Dogs & Pups is dedicated to this beautiful bond – this issue is special and is packed with a lot of activities to make your dog happy. We need to get the fun and the zing back in their lives, mentally stimulate them, give them things to do, play with them and most of all spend quality time with them. Let’s get our acts together, take time out from our busy schedules and make their little hearts happy.

Little activities everyday make this bond beautiful, so make the most of every minute you have with them.

Love when expressed multiplies–A big thank you to all our readers for making this journey so very special. It is truly amazing to get all the pictures, incidents and stories of your beloved canines. What is most awesome is that we have so many angels who are also taking care of our dear dogs on the streets – people of all strata have come together in the noble cause of finding a home for our beloved stray dogs.
Sparkle wishes all your furry angels a happy healthy life and hopes that you keep emailing us your comments, feedback, suggestions, issues of concern, etc. We look forward to your revert and also don’t forget to check our e-magazine.

Together, we definitely can make a difference and be there for our darling dogs forever… just like they are for us!

    blast! Turn on the music, bring out your dancing shoes, spin a little, do a traditional heeling exercise and what you get is a Musical Freestyle, an activity which both you and your pooch will simply love to do!

  2. Tracking:
    Dogs love to sniff and how about sniffing their way to the destination. Let your dog sniff a smell to follow a track and be a winner! Reward him with the sweet-smelling treat or a toy.
  3. Fishing:
    Take a fishing pole and tie a toy to the short line at the end of the rod. Drag the toy along the ground, lift it up and dangle it in air or move it in a circle and let your pooch jump and try to hold it! I bet you both will enjoy the fun!
  4. Digging:
    Take your pooch’s sandbox, and hide his favourite toys in it, let him dig into it deep and get his toys. He will love to dig and you will be happy to see him occupied and happy.
  5. Flyball:
    How about a relay race with four dogs in a team? Sounds exciting, your dogs will love that too. Make a starting line, put a hurdle six feet from the starting line and place three hurdles spaced 10 feet apart from each other and put a spring-loaded box 15 feet away from the last hurdle. A dog jumps the hurdles and then jumps on the box, which shoots out a tennis ball, he catches it and then runs back over four hurdles. When he crosses the starting line, another dog in his team starts the game. The winning team is obviously the one who finishes the race first and with no errors!

So, what are you waiting for, just go, have fun and bond.
