The first six months are the "main growth phase". They require high quality protein and nutrients.

The next 6- 12 months require a reduced protein content to help prevent any growth disorders.

Now fully grown, finding the right diet to match their energy requirements is key. 

Now in old age, diets with a lower fat and phosphorus are needed.

Pets Weekend - the perfect, portable, personalised dog bed

Are you looking for a truly portable, personalised with your dogs name, washable and good looking pet bed? Then the answer is ‘Pets Weekend’. Travelling with your pets can be troublesome, as your weekend host may not appreciate muddy paws on their furniture and with your car fully packed no room to put in a large bed. But no more.... thanks to Pets Weekend. Their lightweight beds come in four sizes and roll up with a handle attached.  The inside is made from one piece of Profleece, which animals love to sleep on and the outer covering is like a duvet cover with the sleeping layer in soft towelling (100% cotton) and the backing stronger canvas.  Each cover can be monogrammed with the animals name. Extra covers can be bought making washing easy. They are available in many colours and you can choose the style and colour of the embroidery for your beloved dogs name. ....but the most useful thing about them is that unlike other dog beds they can be flung over a sofa or a chair or a bed, which protects the furniture in a good-looking way. They make wonderful presents for your doggie friends too...  ‘Wonderful, stylish and practical dog bed.  Particularly good for travel.  Was a much appreciated gift for my godson' ‘A brilliant concept, my dog loves hers as do I as it is not only good to look at but washes perfectly’
