As humans, we use products to monitor our health and fitness, so why not our dogs?

We have teamed up with online automotive marketplace CarGurus.co.uk* to provide guidance and advice on safe car travel with your dog this Spring.

The partnership follows a survey of 2,000 dog-owning drivers which revealed a fifth (22 per cent) got their most recent dog after the start of lockdown – leaving some with hefty costs.

More than a third (35 per cent) of new dog owners said they had to buy a larger or more practical car because of the dog.

Socks is an English springer spaniel, who came to our Hertfordshire centre in early January 2021 as a stray.

During his initial assessment on arrival, Socks showed little to no interest in toys or food, and was shrinking away from human contact.

However, he showed a flicker of interest in Shelley, a Junior Animal Care Leader, and herself an experienced Spaniel owner. Shelley was allocated to work with Socks for his first few days to help him settle.

Ozzy is a beautiful collie who we are very pleased to say has been rehomed this year, but when he first came into our Cornwall centre, he was terrified of vehicles and reactive to anything that moved.

His fear of vehicles was so bad, that the staff had some trouble getting him into a vehicle to take him to the vets for neutering and vaccination; it was a major obstacle to overcome. He must have had a terrible experience to have frightened him so much and have such a negative association with vehicles.

I didn’t have the best start in life, and found it very difficult to trust humans when I first came into the centre; I especially didn’t enjoy anyone touching me.
