Walk and Talk Series | January

Last Sunday we held the first in our Walk & Talk series of 2019 and what an amazing day it turned out to be. Not only was the winter sun shining bright for the walk but we were also joined by some fantastic dogs and amazing experts, Hannah from Butternut Box and Ciara from Vet in the City who were both on hand to offer some expert advice on all things related to your dogs diet.

Current research has shown that almost 50% of dogs in the UK are overweight. Overweight dogs can be prone to bone, ligament and joint damage, as well as diabetes, respiratory and heart conditions. However, losing weight and getting in shape has been proven to add almost 2 years onto our dogs lives providing just how important the right diet and exercise is for your four legged friend.
If you’re worried that your dog may be overweight, the scales alone may not be the best way of confirming this. 
Have a look at your dog’s ribs, you should be able to feel them distinctly beneath their coat, covered by a small amount of fat beneath the skin. If you can’t feel them at all, then your dog maybe overweight (This guide can vary from breed to breed)

Ciara has some great pointers on her website on this subject along with tips on how to understand dog food labelling better.

We plan to carry on with the fitness and health theme for our February walk which we will be sharing more details on in the coming week - Stay tuned

Walk and Talk Series | Fetch and Follow Dog Walks | November

Here at Fetch and Follow a daily dog walk is an integral part of our routine (and also happens to be our favourite part!). Having a dog opens a world of opportunity everyday with a new adventure every time you hook up your dog's collar to their lead. You never know who you are going to meet and the stories you will share.

With this in mind we are excited to announce our November Fetch & Follow’s Walk & Talk will be taking place on Sunday 25th.

All about festive fun, the session will start in East London’s Haggerston Park then onto Broadway Market before reaching Fetch & Follow’s Christmas Market for Dogs and Dog Lovers. The walking group will all receive an exclusive goodie bag and coffee, along with their very own Christmas snap by popular pet photographer Rachel Oates, who will have a pop-up photo studio at the market. Wearing your festive finest is advised!

The Walk is FREE to attend but spaces are limited
