Chinese Crested DogAre you worried about your dog shedding in the autumn and turning into a hairless dog like the Chinese Crested? 

You may have noticed your dog shedding more than usual as the days grow shorter, the trees turn yellow and the weather cools down. This might seem like a strange way for preparing for winter, so you might think something is wrong with your dog.

dog swedenAfter the United Kingdom, Malta and Sweden are also simplifying their pet import legislation from 2012, falling in line with the rest of EU member countries.

This is great news to anybody about to import a dog, as the six long months of quarantine will no longer be required. The details of the new rules are unknown as of this moment, but both countries are likely to introduce legislation similar to that of the UK, as we reported in July.

How to introduce a new puppy to your cat

Many families own a cat prior to bringing a new puppy in the home. For a young puppy, leaving its mother, litter mates and adapting to a completely new environment can be stressful enough, while meeting a cat – even if it’s not as large as the one above – can easily cause trouble.

Dognapping on the rise


August 24, 2011
Peter

dognappingAccording to a recent article of USA Today, the number of dogs being stolen has risen dramatically in 2011.

Stealing dogs with the intention of demanding a ransom from the owner is not
a new phenomenon. In fact, the first ever dognapping case was recorded in 1934. The stolen Boston Terrier was returned to its
owner after 5 long months so the story had a happy ending.

Dogs become part of our families. They will be just like a small brother or
sister to the kids. And when they are kidnapped and there is a chance that
money can buy them back, we pay gladly – provided that we have the money
demanded, that is.

Over time, as conformation showing became more popular, show dogs became the
targets of thieves. It’s easy to see that if the owner of a regular dog is
willing to pay thousands of dollars in ransom, the owner of a valuable show dog
might pay tens of thousands of dollars to get his pooch back.

Dognapping – not only for ransom but reselling, experiments and a number of
other purposes – has become widespread in the United States by the 60’s. So
much so that it had actually become one of the most talked about issues of the
time. The public dismay and the floods of letters demanding something to be
done put enormous pressure on the senate. As a result, the “Dognapping Law”,
which became the Animal Welfare Act of 1966 was born.

Doing our best to provide the best

We have recently received a letter from Petra, a Happy
Miniature Bull Terrier owner in the United Arab Emirates and we think her
experience will help many of you out there searching for that special puppy of
yours.

Miniature Bull Terrier, UAEShe starts her letter: “I have received the puppy and
all went well. I must say that I am very happy with my choice.”
Her puppy is indeed
very good looking and confident which you can tell just by looking at her face.
Petra continues: “I have always gone
directly to breeder to purchase my dogs because I wanted to see where they come
from, how the parents are kept and how well the puppies are socialized.”

It is perfectly reasonable from anyone looking to buy a
puppy to want to visit the breeder in person, see the parents, the environment
and of course, the puppy itself. However, the traditional way of selecting and
purchasing a puppy is not an option for everyone:

“But
because I live in the UAE and I have little time to look for breeders with available
puppies in my short summer holiday, I had to rely on strangers like you to do
the leg work for me.”

That’s where Euro Puppy comes in. We visit the breeders
personally, photograph their puppies, give them a good health check and will
only recommend the ones to you that meet the standard. If you want to save yourself
the “leg work” as Petra says, we are here to help.

“I
must admit that I had my doubts buying an animal from the internet. I was a
little worried that I was purchasing a dog from horrible breeding facilities
where the bitches are covered over and over again to make maximum profits. I
worried that the puppies were not well kept and psychologically disturbed.”

Good news for UK dog lovers: entry rules about to change!


July 1, 2011
Peter

bulldogIf you have ever attempted to import a dog to the UK or to simply travel with
your own, you know what a nuisance it is. According to our unofficial sources,
the entry rules for pets entering the UK are about to change finally.

At the moment your dog needs to be at least 9 months of age to enter the UK
under the Pets Travel Scheme. Young puppies need to spend the first six months
of their lives – the best period for bonding and training – in quarantine just
to make sure that the required vaccinations are effective and the puppy does
not carry any infectious diseases.

What’s happening is that the UK is falling in line with the rest of EU. Pet dogs and cats from the EU and listed third countries (see pdf below) entering the UK from 1st January 2012 will require the following:

Safe Shipping

The regulations of each country regarding the transportation of live animals varies greatly. However, our 10 years experience of shipping dogs to over 80 countries makes us your best option to have your dog shipped. We fully comply with the regulations of each destination and make our dog's well-being the number one priority at all times. Our dogs get food and water during their travel and their crates are cleaned in an animal holding facility. They travel in a climate controlled room on the airplane, which insures that they are effected by the journey as little as possible.

Free Microchip

At Euro Puppy, every dog comes with an ISO compatible microchip ($30 value) at no extra cost. Microchipping is now an international standard and is no more painful than a vaccination. The microchip can normally be detected between the shoulder blades of the dog. In the US, AVID chips are used and AVID chip readers will not detect the ISO compatible microchips. Please make sure your reader can read ISO compatible chips.
