A team of more than 40 sniffer dogs are playing a vital role at Northern Ireland’s prisons
I arrived at my new home a couple of weeks ago. I love to play, eat well, take huge walks with my Human, do tasks and sniff around the park that’s near our apartment where we go most often. I love safety and predictability: knowing what to expect and when to expect it.
Being a city dog, we sometimes take public transport with Mum. I’m not a huge fan for many reasons, but mostly because I have to put on a muzzle. Even though I am a service dog and look cute, this awful thing is still mandatory on the bus and tram.
Every dog person has it hanging somewhere in their home, in many cases not only one, but several in different colours and sizes: the leash. The tool that connects us with our dogs – as you use it, your personality and relationship with your dog is revealed.
I think I might have mentioned before that I completed a service dog exam. This means, that I learned to help ill, wounded or very sad children and adults. This is an ability me and Mum instinctively have. Something we were born with, I guess.
I’m not a big dog park goer as I’m not a big fan of such obligations and I don’t like impolite, pushy dogs either. We usually hang out with the pack outside on a big field or in a forest or walk nice and disciplined on lead.
The Hungarian brand Julius K-9® is renowned among dog owners for its high-quality harnesses, leashes and other accessories. The founder, Gyula Sebő, started the company in his garage in Budapest, Hungary, back in 1997. Despite some highs and lows, the company has since become a leading manufacturer and distributer of harnesses and accessories supplying dog lovers around the world with innovative equipment. Gyula Sebő explains why it is so important for companies like Julius K-9® to have a carefully crafted IP strategy in place from day one.
Thanks to our subsidiaries and partners we are present in many countries around the world and support local animal protection initiatives that are in line with our creed to the best of our ability. In Taiwan, for example, we help a school dog programme that promotes the adoption of stray dogs by providing them with harnesses and other equipment they need.
As a member of the family your dog fully deserves the quality we consider important for ourselves. Whether it’s food, cosmetics or equipment, it’s important that these are made from ingredients that are premium and not harmful to your pet’s health. Thanks to the fact that we know more and more about the effects on health of different compounds, we can now make far more informed and careful choices when looking for a given product for dogs.
Traditional dog foods usually contain significant amounts of grain, which may cause digestive problems for many dogs. Dogs are primarily carnivores. Although they have become more or less able to break down the starch in grains due to domestication, meat is still the main part of their diet. This is the spirit in which, so-called grain-free dog food was born.
