Are you up for Yoga for dogs – “Doga”

You have heard of Yoga for sure, but have you heard of Doga?

An enterprising yoga instructor in Hong Kong introduces the “doga” to help our furry friends to better find their inner peace, keep fit and stay healthy.  Doga has been popular in other pet loving countries like Japan and USA for some time now.

Suzette Ackermann, originally “just a dance and yoga” instructor from South Africa introduces doga to Hong Kong about a year ago.  Although she has been doing yoga with “Snowball” at home for some time, she was instigated by her Japanese groomer to start her doga classes.

Please see the video:

Well, for those of you who read our Tip of the Week: Fat Dog or Fit Dog, this may just be what Singapore dogs need.  Now the question is: Do we have a yoga instructor in Singapore up to the task of bringing doga to Singapore? Continue reading

Even Simon Cowell can’t say no to a dancing dog

Some of you might have already seen this, but we just could not resist sharing with you a dancing dog, especially one that does a Flintstones!

Ashleigh and Pudsey were given a standing ovation at the end of the performance in Britain’s Got Talent 2012.  Although, we were quite heartened to see a usually stone-cold Simon softening the moment Pudsey appeared on stage, however, it was seeing Simon do a standing ovation that must really warm our hearts!  Wow, now we know that a dancing dog is a highway to Simon’s heart!  I think we can count Simon as a dog lover, agreed?

Of course, other two co-judges, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams, clearly smitten, wave on the entertaining pair and we wish them the best on their quest for the Oscars.

Watch their Flintstones themed audition here:

Need some ideas on how to celebrate Christmas with your pets?

Here are a few tips to make this holiday season a happy one for your family, both human and furry!

Getting presents for your pets

Tons of stuff you can get for your pets for Christmas! From the usual treats, to a new bedding for them, or a collar for the dogs or cats. A new toy for the birds, or a hamster ball for the hamsters to roll freely around in!

DIY Christmas treats for your pet

Put aside some time for baking pet treats, just like how you cook for your family! Homemade biscuit recipes for pets are readily available online. However, if you do not have the time on hand to bake, you can consider getting some pet-safe ingredients such as yogurt, or fruits like apples or melons and whip up a healthy dessert for them!

Customising some personalised Christmas e-cards

Take some cute photos of your pets by dressing them up in holiday gear, or just put a Santa hat on them. You can Whatsapp your friends, or send the photos through MSN or email! Save the earth by going green but don’t forget to send greetings during this festive season!

Cat Urination Behavior

Most people who are talking about or inquiring about cat urination behavior are having some undesirable issues at home. No one really discusses this when their kitty is using the litter box as they should. It’s when they start doing their business right outside the litter box, on the couch or on your laundry in the bottom of the closet that it becomes a concern.

 

Believe it or not, if you are troubled with house-soiling, you are certainly not alone. This is the most common behavioral problem that cat owners have to deal with. Interestingly, many people think that it’s for revenge. Well, contrary to popular belief, it’s not all about you! It could be completely coincidental that your cat urinated on the carpet at the same time you decided to go away for a few days. Then again, maybe the neighbor you had watching him forgot to give him his treats!
