Hello again, I’m here to talk about dogs today.

Lots of you probably have dogs so I hope I’ve got your full attention. To start, can you remember what I told you last time  regarding what ALL pets need? Good! For those that need a reminder, it’s food and water, a good home, the right sort of company, to behave normally and to be healthy. Humans need all of that too and our pets are no different!

All shapes and sizes

So let’s talk specifically about dogs. They really do come in all shapes and sizes – from dinky Chihuahua’s to great big St Bernard’s. But they all started off as wolves and 15,000 years ago we started to keep them as pets!

Fun facts
  • Dogs have an amazing sense of smell and great hearing – some of the sounds they can detect are up to four times quieter than we can hear!
  • Like us, dogs are omnivores – this means that they eat both meat and plants.
  • Dogs are really very intelligent and can understand certain words. Have you heard about clever border collie, Rico? He learned the names of 200 toys and was able to fetch the correct one when asked to!

So, if you have a dog, or are thinking of getting one, have a good look through the pet care download attached below.

Woof!

Make sure you come back in a couple of weeks for my hamster pet care tips!

Some call me a wise old owl and I'm not one to disagree. I came to Anmal Action Park after I was hit by a car and broke my wing. I made a full recovery though and now I fly around the park quite happily, sharing my knowledge and wisdom with anyone who'll listen. Look out for me telling you lots of interesting animals facts!

    Dogs are awesome. I always said I wanted to get a pug when I grow up but since I’ve read the Born to Suffer campaign I think I want to get a Basset hound more.

    Rest in Peace Max, Bella, Bessie and Josh.

      Hello Alice. Yes I do like dogs! Dougal, in the Animal Action office, is very funny. He likes to wander around the office sometimes and say hello to as many people as possible. I don’t see many other dogs though. When I’m out flying it’s too dark for the dogs to be out. They’re all tucked up at home!

        I LIKE DOGS BEACAUSE I AM ONE!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Olivia

        If you want to see another dog then Dougal then start flying out at the daytime, you’ll be lucky enough to see at least 1 dog. (Any dog but Dougal)

    I love all dogs but huskies are my favriote! Is there any huskies currently at the R.S.P.C.A please let me know xxxxxxxxxx

      Yes, we have quite a lot! Did you know you can search for any type of dog (or other animal) on the RSPCA website to see who needs a new home?! To find the huskies go to this page – you will see all the dogs. To narrow it down you need to click on ‘filter results’ and then in the first box you can select the breed! You can also add your postcode or town if you want to search for animals nearest to where you live!
