Things to do with Your Dog This April

dog walker east finchleyNow that Spring is coming and the weather has started to warm up why not get rid of some those winter blues and go for some long walks in the County (or not event that far). North London has some great places to go out dog walking. For example Trent Country Park

The magnificent stretches of Trent Country Park incorporate the wooded remnants of Enfield Chase, former royal hunting ground.  Muntjac deer, rabbits, pheasants are nowadays the proud inhabitants of the park, and if you are very lucky you can catch a glimpse of them roaming over their land.

For example you hide your dogs favourite treats around the garden such as tasty chicken bits or tasty sausages and watch your dog sniff them out.

Alternatively why not buy an Easter egg mound from somewhere like Amazon along with some packets of doggy choc.  Now simply melt the doggy choc and fill both half’s of the mould.  Once the dog friendly Easter egg has been made you can fill the hollow with his/her favourite treats
