There are several acts in force that cover dogs and their owners, some dog laws are there to protect all involved but some are just plain stupid. Here's what we managed to find out involving dogs and the law.
Dog laws in the UK date back to the 19th century but there are also more recent laws involving your dog we should all be aware of.
The most notable of these dog laws is the ‘Animal Welfare Act of 2007′ aimed at providing protection of animals. Previous acts were more concerned with laws protecting humans, but we will come to those a little later.
This image was takin in spring last year, I was enjoying the bluebells when the rustle of Mollys feet stopped beside me. She had stopped to admire a bee, can you spot her? Where is Molly in this path in the woods?
It is another relentless long cold winter, despite carrying around their thick jackets year round dogs still need looking after. Here are some tips to keep your dog happy and healthy over winter.
You would be forgiven for thinking that dogs are ideally suited for cold conditions. Summer long they struggle with the heat, many breeds have a lovely warm thick coat of hair that traps the heat. Whilst this is true, there are still many things we can do to help our dogs through winter. Keep your dog healthy in winter...
It is always a difficult call to make, when do I take my dog to the vets? Some dog owners take their dogs at the slightest sniffle whereas others will wait until a limb is about to fall off. But when is the best time to take your dog to the vets?
It is almost inevitable that at some point your dog will get injured or fall sick. Dogs are susseptible to colds and general bugs just like us, but they can also develop life threatening illnesses that require treatment. Unfortunately dogs can hide their illnesses very well and dogs are able to cope much better with illnesses and injuries than their humans, dogs rarely moan or complain which doesn`t make it easy when to know to take your dog to the vets.

Dogs bring some of our happiest moments, but also some of our lowest. Sharing your life with a dog compliments us in many ways, but also is a lot of work.
I have shared almost my entire life with dogs, from a family pet growing up as a child to best buddy when I first moved away right upto the present, where my beloved Molly shares almost every moment with me. We are a great advert for dog ownership, we seem to understand each other, Molly is calm but excitable, lethargic but energetic. But owning a dog wasn`t always this easy and won`t always be this easy.
I have compiled a list of what I have experienced as the good and bad points of dog ownership, take a look and add your own in the comments field at the bottom of the post. Read our good and bad points of owning a dog
It is an exciting time welcoming a new dog into your household. Unless your dog is a rescue dog with an already established name you will need to choose a name. Lets look at the most popular names for dogs...
We all put lots of thought into naming our new puppy, we choose a dog name that reflects us and the dog (or what we want the dog to grow into). hopefully you are going to share many years with your new best friend so you should choose a great name for your dog.
At the end of the year various pet insurance companies release anonymous data regarding the pets with policies with them. One of my favourites highlights the top dog names at year end.

What's cuter than a dog dressed up in a reindeer outfit or dressed as an elf? We couldn`t think of anything either so here is a collection of dogs dressed in Christmas clobber we found on the web.
Dogs love Christmas too, my dogs adore the changes in the house as the Christmas tree goes up and the decorations litter the house. Sniff this, nudge that, grab Rudolf around the neck before throwing him down the stairs.
Then you have the Christmas food. Lots of meat and over indulgence, the dogs sit patiently waiting for their scraps before getting giddy for a veritable feast of turkey, potatoes, gravy and the rest.
