Looking for Loving Homes

Greetings Fellow Pekies,

Hey there, did you miss us?

As promised, here we are again for a quick post. Quick catch-up, we are still busy getting our new home built and are hoping to move in before the end of the year.

Many of you have contacted us looking for a lovely little bundle of joy to add to your family, and at last we can offer you that.

Today we introduce you to the two lovely little boys below. Aren’t they just as cute as buttons?

These two little chaps are looking for a loving family to join, either together or each to a good family.

Sansaw Kennels Taking a Break

Greetings Fellow Pekies,

Sansaw Kennels will be taking an extended break!

We are effectively retiring after a very long working-life and are subsequently moving to smaller premises, which means that Sansaw Kennels as you know it will also no longer exist.

Unfortunately, our new home will be too small for all our dogs, and it was with very heavy hearts that we had to make the decision to give some of our dogs away, but comes a time when such decisions unfortunately have to be made.

We are only keeping 2 females and one male, so will not be doing much breeding – it will also be at least a year before we may possibly have any pups.

Interesting Facts About Dogs

agony aunt

Greetings Fellow Pekies,

Monday again, which means  it is once again time for your weekly episode of “Aunty Aggie’s Advice & Information Column.

Did you Know that according to  scientists in California, dogs suffer from jealousy and are just as likely to turn into a green eyed monster as humans?

Researchers studied 36 dogs from 14 breeds and found that most were indifferent when their owners ignored them until the owners showered their attention on a stuffed dog.

Then the pet pooches’ behaviour changed dramatically, sparking snapping and snarling.

The discovery shows that while dogs are man’s best friend, they still have the capacity to surprise us.

Introducing a New Dog to Your Household Pack

agony aunt

Greetings Fellow Pekies,

Monday again and it is once again time for your weekly episode of “Aunty Aggie’s Advice & Information Column.

Most dog-lovers do not only have one doggie, because that is like having just one child; it is simply not enough.

Bringing a new dog into the family is an exciting time for the human “pack” members, but can create stress for the non-human pack.

This is why today we have an interesting article on “Introducing a New Dog to Your Household Pack” 

Remember, depending on where your new dog comes from, they may be shy of people and/or of other dogs, and this may present either as being a bit aggressive or as extremely shy.

Humans need to allow the new dog to come to them when he is ready to. They should not make direct eye contact with the dog or look them straight in the eyes as this can be taken as a challenge. They should turn side-on and place their hand out in a loose fist or fingers pointing down, so the back of the palm is facing the dog and allow the dog to approach them and sniff them at his own pace.

Is your Dog a Jumper?

agony aunt

Greetings Fellow Pekies,

Monday again and it is once again time for your weekly episode of “Aunty Aggie’s Advice & Information Column.

Today we will discuss “the jumping dog” – why your dog may be jumping up on people and how to stop your dog from doing so.

Dogs should never be allowed to jump on humans unless invited to do so by the human. Many people think that a dog that jumps up on them is “just saying hello” and may even find it cute, but not everyone does.

A dog that jumps on humans of its own free will is a dog that does not respect the person it is jumping on, and many individuals do not like being jumped on by a dog, whether the dog is a small breed or the size of a horse.

A jumping dog is annoying and can also be dangerous, as it can knock someone off their feet, hurt them accidentally with their nails, dirty or even tear their clothing, and can scare children and the elderly.

When a dog jumps on a human, it is not “greeting” the human – it is asserting its dominance over the human; it is the dog communicating that it is alpha and/or wishes to own/control the human.

Sometimes a dog can jump on a person because they want that person to play with them, but even then it is not acceptable and the doge must be taught that jumping up on people is not acceptable behaviour.
