Tips for keeping your dog cool in hot weather

Hot weather means hot dogs (and we don’t mean the great-with-ketchup kind), so here are some top tips from our in-house vet Dr Ciara Clarke to help keep your dog cool and safe this summer.

How to keep your dog cool in summer

The UK isn't known for having the hottest summers but that doesn't stop us from spending our days in beer gardens and picking out our favourite ice creams. Even if the sun isn't beaming, you have to make sure your pooch is nice and cool. Seen as neither of the above activities are pooch-friendly, here are some tips on how to keep your dog cool in summer.

The most unexpected crossbreeds

Crossbreeds are very popular choices for those looking to adopt a dog. They often come with the best traits from each parent pooch and make for pawfect companions. We've all heard of a Labradoodle and a Cockapoo, but have you heard of these less common crossbreeds?

Our low-fat meals and fun ways to keep your pooch in shape

Your dog's health and happiness is our main priority at Butternut. We all know that the key to keeping your pooch healthy is through good food and exercise, and whilst we've got the good food part covered, the exercise is down to you.

Royal Dog Breeds

Many of us like to treat our pooches like royalty: endless treats, letting them nap after long days of butt sniffing, serving them the finest Butternut dinners. No matter how much of a prince or princess your dog may be, some breeds naturally have more royal blood in them than others.

The biggest and smallest dogs

Dog breeds vary greatly in size - from mighty Great Danes and St Bernards to tiny Chihuahuas and Dachshunds. (That's physically speaking, of course - your pooch may feel like the big dog after a day of chasing squirrels in the park, but soon feel very small after peeing on your new carpet. Oops.)Outside of your own dogs varying size, have you ever pawsed to think about the biggest and smallest dogs out there?


10 things your pooch should never eat

We know what your dog is like: they see what you're eating and they want it. Classic. Most of the time, you can indulge them and give them a little nibble. Some foods, however, should stay far away from your pooch. Spoiler alert: delicious Butternut meals do not feature on this list.
