Salmon oil is a great supplement for all dogs and cats but not all oils are the same.
Most companies tend to buy in their oil which has been heat extracted and separated by a centrifuge – which can ‘damage’ the product, but not CSJ!
Their highly successful Salmon Oil is unique in that it is cold pressed – so preserving the important unsaturated fatty acids, which can be damaged by other methods of manufacture.
Continuously committed to providing only the best CSJ did exhaustive research in 2012 to source a supplier and eventually found the only company to manufacture salmon oil in this manner.
100% pure from freshly caught Norwegian Salmon then cold pressed within 24 hours CSJ Salmon Oil is highly beneficial by strengthening the immune system, increasing fertility, helping skin and coat and aiding mobility whilst reducing the risk of heart disease.
Now used for many years by successful dog handlers and owners in all fields of canine activity CSJ Salmon Oil has proven to be in a class of its own.
A common behavioural issue that I am regularly called upon to help clients with is: dog-dog reactivity.
Other than working on the issue itself, the main problem that these reactive dog owners are having, is other people in public places allowing their dogs to run up to them off lead.
This sadly can undo all the hard work and progress that the owner was making with their reactive dog, as well as causing a potentially dangerous situation to happen. This can also be the case for dogs who are kept on lead for a variety of other reasons such as in season, recovering from an operation, in training, assistance dogs etc.
Together we can spread the awareness of of ‘dog walking etiquette’
I would love to help these owners by spreading the awareness of ‘dog walking etiquette’ to all dog owners, that if they see a dog who is on lead, especially if they have signage on their coats/ leads and or wearing muzzles, that they need to call their dogs back to them and keep them under control until they are safely passed.
You can be prosecuted for your dog being out of control in a public place
Did you know you can be prosecuted for your dog being out of control in a public place under section 3 of the Dangerous dogs act 1991? This includes not being able to call your dog back!
If someone has their dog on lead and you allow your dog to run up to them causing an aggressive reaction then its your dog that is out of control in a public place – not theirs, as is commonly misunderstood.
To do this I have created a free poster – I would be extremely grateful if you would please share this with all of your family, friends and clients to help me spread this awareness and help owners work together and be more considerate.
Owners allowing their dogs to run up to others without checking permission first is rarely done with malicious intent but rather due to a lack of awareness, so the more we can spread the word and educate people the less this will hopefully happen.
Share the posteron social media
As well you being able to share this picture on social media, the poster is also available to download for free in A4 or A3 here or on my website: www.natures-therapies.co.uk/online

Ceri Rundle says, “Tailor-made food for our own dogs was the reason for founding CSJ Specialist Canine Feeds and tailoring rations for individual dogs’ needs is still at the very heart of the CSJ ethos.”
Over 20 years ago Ceri chose expert vets and the UK’s leading nutritionist and gave them the challenging brief to develop a full range of appetising diets for dogs of all ages, which had top quality ingredients – yet was reasonably priced.
Using only top quality, natural ingredients, the now extensive range of CSJ feeds, herb supplements, treats and skin products has been continuously developed to meet the specific needs of dogs of all ages – from conception right through to ‘retirement’.
Ceri goes on, “Even dogs from the same litter, with the same activity levels and same living arrangements can have widely different needs and this is why we offer such a diverse choice of products and have an in-house Nutritional Advisor always happy to advise on the best product or tailored combination of products for individual dogs.
There are many benefits to using our products and the features include being all natural, containing no GM ingredients and being made in the UK by DEFRA approved sites which adhere to stringent quality control and traceability systems.”
She adds, “Of course there is no animal testing involved – apart from taste testing by our own kennel (and they don’t mind!).”
Hello, I’ve just started feeding my huskies CP all rounder and they absolutely love it!!… Bow, Dolly and Amka. Bow on the left is 7 years and retired due to hip dysplasia and elbow arthritis. Dolly is 5 years and my canicross partner, Amka is 9 months and my future star! She is going to be shown and worked. Already started canicross training and hoping to get her into bikejor or scooter. They are all powered by CSJ and love it! Bow is a fussy eater but not with CSJ. We also loved the energy bars for long distance runs or a snack after a hard training session
These are two questions I ask my new coaching students – it gets them thinking… and not just ‘what a daft question’!
Motivation is a complex subject, it fuels our interest to do things, it generates our intrigue to learn and develop skills. The motivation cycle is fascinating too. Motivation builds and plateaus to a point where the topic (in our case dog sports) becomes a habit. Then the habit becomes a way of life and before you know it, we have multiple dogs, a caravan or a motorhome, a dog vehicle, all our holidays are at competitions and we’re on the dog sport hamster wheel. Now ask the question ‘why do you do dog sports?’….and the answer you’ll get is:
‘Because I do, I’ve always done it’.
That’s the answer I often got – until I probed more (asking five why’s) until I uncovered the real reasons.
The Five Why’s
Asking five why’s takes the emotion out of the subject and gets to the deep rooted reasons often forgotten over time. Of course there are no right or wrong answers with this exercise, what’s important, particularly at times like now when external pressures have stopped the hamster wheel, is that we remember why we got involved in the first place.
From my experience these reasons include: * I’ve always been around dogs * I’ve always been involved with competitive sports; * I like the social side of the sport; * I enjoy teaching my dogs new skills; * All of the above !
It’s important to understand what form of motivation drives each one of these root causes. When you know that, you can channel that motivation in other directions if you need too.
For example, if you enjoy teaching dogs new skills but you can’t do your sport at the moment, you may get that ‘motivation’ feel from virtually teaching new skills to help people. If you’ve always been involved with competitive sports but you can’t do your sport at the moment, then is there another sport you can find out about, do you have a transferable skill you can offer to another sport or person.
We often get so caught up on the hamster wheel that until something like COVID, a recession, or a change in personal circumstances comes along, we don’t stop and look at other options.
Maybe it’s time to ask what motivates us and how can we use them to keep going in these unprecedented times and expand our interests.
