So how did Down Boy! get its name?

Down Boy!So how did Down Boy! get its name?

It was a frantic msg on our answerphone several years ago from one of our male sponsored handlers. “Hi! I need your help. Haven’t had much sleep for nights… Can you send me some some Down Boy! I ‘m desperate!”

Then, as soon as he put the phone down, he realised how funny that sounded as he hadn’t explained that two of their husky bitches were in season and the kennel of boys had been going mad – howling etc!!

Our best selling ‘Down boy!’ product was born. order yours here:

Down Boy! The difference has been amazing, the marking has decreased by 90%!

Posting from Sandie Owen
Down Boy - shaggy dogHe is a 2 year old, intact lurcher, approx 24” (whippet, collie, greyhound). The biggest problem that I have had with him is marking everywhere, corner of the beds, sofa’s even getting up on the side in the kitchen and weeing over the kettle !!!!!!!! It had really got to a stage where I didn’t know what to do with him. I didn’t want to have him neutered as I enjoy showing him at working dog shows (he was in the last 8 at the midlands country fair, Champion of Champions 2015).

I have noticed a significant difference since giving him Down Boy! at tea time, as I said he isn’t keen on the taste but mixing it with butter helps, he is fussy at the best of times tho. The difference has been amazing the marking has decreased by 90% I would say, he is also more laid back and less territorial towards the other animals in the house.

I have also noticed an improvement in his coat, lovely shine.”

Happy New Year from Mark Laker

MLakerJan2016Happy New Year,
I hope you had a relaxing break and are now looking forward to 2016. We took the opportunity of the extended break to go to an agility competition in Germany; and have a wee holiday at the same time. It was great! we really enjoyed the competition, the dogs did good and it was a nice way to see the New Year in. The venue was fantastic (see picture). There are quite a lot of these types of facilities in Europe for dog agility.
In my last article I wrote about my preparations for Olympia. Unfortunately Devo pulled up lame after qualifying for the evening final. This was completely unexpected and unusual for him. In all his six years of competition he has never gone lame or in fact had any injury at all. I’m pleased to say he recovered quickly after seeing the Physio for some minor treatment and was 100% back to fitness for the trip to Germany.
My focus for the next few months is on preparations for Crufts and preparing Team GB for the Performance Weekend in April. The second squad day in February will soon be here and there’s lots to do.
I wish you and your dogs a successful and healthy 2016.
