The Doglistener Dog Store
They include my famous training aid the Jingler that can trains dogs in minutes rather than days or weeks
Unfortunately, they were only available online from my website, and to some extent, you could not feel or even see the quality of all my range of products.
You could not buy or view them in pet shops or in most cases anywhere else except on my online store
I felt it was time that I opened a physical shop where you can test the goods, try them on and see the quality at first hand
I manufacture my own brand of treats, leads and collars for all sizes of dogs.
I only will only ever sell products that I believe to be ethical and most of my goods are made in the UK.
My Dog Store is a new innovation because if I go into a pet shop I have to browse around products for hampsters rabbits cats and horses. before seeing anything I want for my dogs.
I envisaged a Store that is for dogs only and that is what I have created in Sheen Nr Richmond.
The Dog Store was open for business on Tuesday 13th August and I will be adding many more products than were available from my online store. I will be stocking quality crates, harnesses, and a full range of my famous dog leads but with a far wider choice to choose from.
I will also be there on some days of the week and as one of the UK's Leading Dog Behaviourists, I can give you advice on your dogs and puppies. I can also demonstrate how the Jingler works. Though if you want me to stop your dogs pulling on the lead or jumping up etc there will be a nominal charge of £20.00. Only payable if I am successful.
Given that until I retired three years ago I was charging £2500 for a behavioural session I think that is extremely reasonable. If you do have a problem dog and wish to speak to me then phone and make sure |I am in on that day 0208 878 4364
Other new products will include what I believe are the best supplements for joints, pain relief for our older dogs nor just high energy dogs that need that extra help when working or agility
At the other end of the scale is the pregnant mothers and of course the puppies themselves. Therefore I now stock the finest puppy weaning porridge with a vast array of vitamins and vital minerals in that compound.
I fed my own pregnant dog on the specialised porridge in week six of her pregnancy and of course, at 3.5 weeks the pups were weaned on this porridge
My own dogs have been fed on these supplements for over 3 years now. And the litter of puppies were quite amazing because of it
The dog I kept back out of the litter is called Gunner he is the one with the white collar on the picture right and is shown in the picture above two years later.
This is Fizz and her pups the day after birth, she looked fabulously healthy and just look at the coats on the one-day-old pups. they shine with vigour.
I also had no runt of the litter. I believe that was because of with care I took with the mother whilst she was pregnant see my article (1) The Pregnant Dog
I have added to my extensive range of ethical Doglistener Air-Dried Dog Treats only available from me and let me remind people that these treats are unique as they must adhere to my strict guidelines.
They now include Rabbit Ears with Fur and Beef Scalp with Fur and they are natures natural dewormers, as they remove the eggs and worms as they sweep through the digestive system.
For me to accept the treats I needed to be able to guarantee their provenance and I required the producers to fulfil my ethical criteria.
For them to fulfil those requirements, they had to be from free-range animals, all grown as nature intended with no growth hormones, steroids, or antibiotics and non-halal and from EU regulated livestock. They also had to be totally natural without any additives colourants or even spices.
They also must be from human-grade animals, not the so-called 4-D meat that gets its name from diseased, dying, disabled and dead livestock, deemed unfit for human consumption.
Once I had found suitable suppliers from only EU countries which have stringent requirements regarding animal husbandry I had one final condition.
I did not want them stocked in warehouses for years before getting to my shelves.
Come and visit me in the new store in Sheen I will not be there every day but if I am you can ask me or my daughter who is a dog trainer and upcoming behaviourist about your dogs.
You will get a free packet of Fish4dogs fish skins and you can test the treats that I sell on your dogs if you bring them with you.
If Louise and I do not know or are unable to help you with your training problems then I would be amazed. The address of the new store The Dog Store, 364 Upper Richmond Road West, East Sheen, London, SW14 7JU 0208 878 4364
