Top 5 Winter Tips With Your Pet

The snow is falling, winter is coming. The colder weather conditions can make exercising and entertaining your pet somewhat difficult. It is important to keep our fur friends entertained during winter otherwise the risk of weight gain, behavioral problems and boredom can occur; which may result in your pet adopting destructive antics and a low mood. Continuing your pet’s exercise regime and providing them entertainment indoors will ensure your pet has a safe and happy winter.

1. Flashing Lights

Pets can be difficult to see during winter’s darker days so if you are exercising outdoors with your pet grab your pet an LED Flashing Light. Easily clipping onto the D-ring of your dog’s collar, the battery powered LED’s emit a bright ambient glow, so you’ll be able to see your pet on the darkest of nights; and so will everyone else.  

 2. Dog Coats

When exposed to excess cold some dogs can get chills, respiratory problems and experience arthritis. When exercising outside with your pet in the cooler winter months, fit them with a WeatherBeeta Dog Coat that will provide warmth, comfort and protection against the elements. 

3. Play Toys

Got a dog who loves to play? Try the Prestige Super Tug or the KONG Puppy Flyer, these types of toys are perfect for interactive play and will strength the bond between you and your pet. For pets who like to play and snuggle with their toys, try the Play N Learn Tigger The Tiger, it’s soft on the outside and durable on the inside – ideal for dogs who love to tug, squeak and shake their toys. To keep your cat occupied, offer them a KONG Chase Craze that them with its rattle sound and bright feathers as it quickly rolls across the floor. 

4. Chew Toys

Dogs spend many of their waking hours hunting for food, so why not take advantage of this? Get your dog hunting for their meal by stuffing a KONG Puppy Activity Ball or KONG Dental Stick with some frozen food; it will have your pooch entertained for hours.

5. Indoor Play

Giving your dog the proper dose of exercise in the winter months can sometimes be difficult. Why not visit an indoor dog park, they are often held at doggy day care centers and they’re a great way of letting your dog continue to play and socialize with other dogs and get some exercise in too!

Do Goldfish Really Have A Three Second Memory?

The answer is…


In fact, goldfish have very good memories and can be trained to respond to various sensory cues such as color, light and music. Goldfish have also proven to remember things they are taught as much as a year later. Researchers have taught goldfish to play fetch, push levers, do the limbo, and even play soccer.

Have you ever noticed a goldfish getting really excited when it’s feeding time? If they are fed around the same time each day, they seem to anticipate the time leading up to feeding, which shows that they have a good sense of time. 

Goldfish also have shown to recognize their master (usually the one who feeds them) and be a lot more active around them. They even sometimes stop considering that person as any sort of threat, including if that person sticks their hand in the tank, however around strangers you may notice goldfish tend to hide away.

How cool!

Revolution Facts

One fact that might give you the chills this autumn is finding out that fleas and other parasites can be nestled in hiding places inside and outside your home without you ever knowing they’re there. The most common hideouts for these pesky parasites are on your pets, on other peoples pets, on wild animals, on shrubbery and bushes in your backyard (where other infested animals can frequent), as well as on the carpets, floors and sofas of your home. That is why, no matter what season or time of the year it may be, flea medication that can attack and kill these parasites and ensure they never return or arrive in the first place should be administered. Have a read below about the topical flea and worm treatment, Revolution.

How Revolution Works

Once applied, Revolution is quickly absorbed into your pet’s bloodstream and distributes through their skin and hair to get down to the business of killing fleas, flea larvae, flea eggs and any other external parasites. Revolution will continue to protect your pet for an entire month, regardless of how long your pet’s hair is.

  • Adult fleas
  • Flea eggs

Within two hours your pet will be fully protected for the next 30 days. Also rest assured, in the event that you bathe your pet two hours after applying Revolution, the application will still remain completely effective.

For a more detailed user guide:

Step One:
  • Hold tube upright
  • Press cap down until you hear a click (meaning  the cap has punctured the tip of the tube)
  • Remove cap and check tube is clear and open
Step Two:
  • Part the hair at the base of your cat or dog’s neck
  • Place the open end of the tube onto the visible area of skin
  • Squeeze the tube until empty onto the one spot (keep the tube squeezed to avoid drawing liquid back in) 
Step Three:            
  • While keeping the tube squeezed, drag it along and away from the liquid, then lift up to remove
  • Ensure the tube has been emptied
  • Relax for a month knowing your fur friend is protected!
