Press release – 26.4.17
CSJ receive testimonials every day from delighted customers, but the message from Donna Waring about her stressed and barking puppy Kizzy stood out as dog training classes had refused to help because Donna is totally blind.
Other dogs barking at Kizzy had caused her to retaliate and bark back, which then escalated into a fear of small dogs and she would bark every time she passed one.
Donna worked hard with her by introducing her to dogs of various sizes and putting her on CSJ’s acclaimed Calm Down! herbal supplement.
When she finally found a dog club willing to allow them to attend Donna told CSJ, “I took her along and all my hard work and Calm Down had done its stuff. She was absolutely fine and just barked twice the whole of the time we were there.”
The following week the group were doing a Kennel Club Good Citizen Bronze test and Donna entered Kizzy just for practice…but she passed!
Donna told CSJ, “This is the best calming product I have ever tried. Don’t get me wrong, you have to put the work in. But if you work hard and use the product in conjunction, you can achieve a lot.”

CSJ’s nutritionists aimed to formulate protein, fat and carbohydrate content close to that preferred by cats and of a natural diet in CSJ’s new Command Purrformance feeds.
In two complete extruded rations – for Active Adult cats and for Mature cats the crunchy texture (which helps promote healthy teeth and gums) and high percentage of animal fats and protein has sent cats into raptures in trials.
Command Purrformance for Active Adult Cats is suitable for all and preferably active adult cats and may be fed as part of the daily diet to kittens. With ingredients including poultry meal, sweet potato, marigold flowers and spinach it is formulated to help maintain urinary pH near to optimum when fed free choice, help maintain muscle mass and help support healthy heart and eyes.
Command Purrformance for Mature Cats is suitable for all and preferably ageing and geriatric adult cats. Containing a mix of animal proteins, enhanced protein quality and quantity to help maintain muscle mass in old age, the blend which includes duck, poultry, salmon, green lipped mussel and cranberry extract has the benefit of healthy ingredients yet with a yummy taste – which is so important to all cats and often lacking in a mature cat food.
Made in Britain and packed in 1kg metallised foil sachets with a 12 month shelf life and an RRP of £5.50 new Command Purrformance for cats is an eagerly awaited addition to CSJ’s renowned natural dog food, herbs and treats ranges.

Crufts was good
The agility produced some great runs which was even more exciting this year as the KC had invested in new carpet for the arena. This carpet was from the same manufacturer who supplied the Agility World Championships in 2012; one of the best surfaces the championships have been run on. So lots of happy people and non-slipping dogs which was nice to see and another example of how developments at the top of the sport filter down to the general community.
The agility competition season has well and truly started now
The weekend shows have started, the caravans are out and this weekend the sun shined too! My youngster Moog has had his first taste of the competition ring. It was very exciting for him. He is enthusiastic and finds all the movement very distracting, however, we did okay. We’ll be using the next three months as practice opportunities as we develop the competition partnership. It’s going to be fast and a lot of fun.
The Agility Team GB Coaching team are now focused on preparing for the Performance Weekend at the end of the month. This is the highlight of the squad process and a chance for the squad members to show us what they can do under international conditions. After this we announce the 2017 teams.
Kath Hardman and the Heel To Music team GB have been busy, competing & working hard to make the Team GB Championships as successful as possible.
They’re running seminars, demonstrations and workshops with profits going towards the costs.
Kath has been organising lots of fundraising, with raffles, competitions and a very successful Auction Page on facebook with a new article nearly every day. Check it out: https://www.facebook.com/HTMTEAMGB/
