From your dog's perspective, Christmas is a time of the year when lots of unusual and exciting things are brought into your home, making it a very tempting time for them to get up to all sorts of mischief. Interesting foods, unusual plants and trees, attractive decorations and Christmas presents will all be of great interest to your dog, but some of these things may be harmful if eaten.
The list below may appear like a long list of things for your dog to avoid, but it is important to remember that they are not human, and that some human foods can be very dangerous to dogs. If you wish to give your dog a treat this Christmas, please ensure that it is something dog-friendly and avoid giving them the foods listed below.
Help to raise funds for Battersea Dogs and Cats Home by supporting the UK's first 2.5km and 5km obstacle runs that you can take on with your dog. You can enter as a dog-and-human duo or go solo if your pampered pooch wants to sit out.
Prepare yourself for a day of mud, sweat, and cheers on our dog-friendly obstacle course. By taking part, you’ll be helping to provide love and care for the thousands of lost, abandoned and unwanted dogs and cats that come into the care of Battersea's rescue centres.
In 2018, Muddy Dog Challenges will take place in Windsor, Nottingham, Manchester, Peterborough, Cardiff and Tunbridge Wells.
Windsor has 2 events taking place on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th May 2018. Time: 9am to 4pm Location: Windsor Great Park, Windsor, SL4 2BA
You don’t need to be able to run a marathon to take part, but you’ll need to be relatively fit (particularly if you are taking on the 5km route).
Speed through each challenge or trot along the length of the course. There’s no timing clock here, just supportive hands and paws at every obstacle.
