Dogs have a reputation as “man’s best friend” for a reason. There’s really nothing better than having one of these four-legged friends by your side or running as fast as they can to chase after a ball you just threw. It’s pretty much impossible to keep the smile off your face when you have a pup around, but even though we know how much we love our furry friends, many of us wonder if our dogs actually love us just as much. The You Tube Video attached reinforces how much this dog loves their owner.Click here

The word is spreading across Kent about the community services that we offer so much so we have nearly reached our first 100 registrations which absolutely fantastic news!!!!! As far as we are aware, there is no other UK based company offering pet owners the opportunity to meet Chums who are willing and able to help meet the care needs of any domestic pet. We have received so much positive feedback from Chums and Pets Owners alike that we are motivated and driven to help as many people as possible.
Just this week alone in the press highlighted why Chums are more preferable to high tech gadgets – PetNet is an automatic pet feeder that is connected to the internet and owners are able to control meal times through an app on their phone. However, when their server crashes like it did this week owners have been left distressed and helpless, especially if they are out of the country, trying to sort out an alternative option. Even though the system only crashed for 10 hours this time I, for one, would be worried that my pet’s feeder hadn’...

If any of you love Donkeys, rumour has it that there may be some donkeys added to the site soon who could benefit from some extra ...

What a lovely morning to be out enjoying the weather!
Well today was the first day out with Bailey talking about Chums4Pets at Mote Park, Maidstone with everyone I bumped into and handing out leaflets to all. I met some lovely people, especially some ladies at the cafe (you know who you are!) who really understood that I want to help both people and pets through Chums4Pets to enhance and improve their lives. Thank you from me and also for pointing out that Bailey was inside the cafe - Trust him with his lovely exurberance to want to say hello to everyone inside and outside!
Hats off to the dog walkers I met on route too and it was great that we are all working towards a common goal of ensuring pets are well looked after.
Just back from the walk and my legs are throbbing with Multiple Sclerosis muscle spasms due to the exertion this morning, but it was so worth it!

RSPCA Remind Pet Owners to Keep their Animals Safe Over the Warm MonthsPosted by Katie Eagleton, Chums4Pets Founder
The RSPCA has reminded pet owners to keep their animals safe over the warm months
With temperatures set to soar to 20 degrees Celsius this week, the charity has given advice to pet owners to ensure their animals are comfortable and happy in the heat.
The Met Office has predicted highs of 20 degrees Celsius on Saturday and Sunday, prompting the RSPCA to remind pet owners to consider their animals over the summer weather.
Just as cold, wintry weather can pose a risk to animals, hot temperatures in the summer months can also be hazardous to our furry friends.
Every year the RSPCA receives thousands of reports of animals suffering from heat exposure. The most common calls to the RSPCA's emergency 24-hour line receives is around dogs in hot cars.
A spokeswoman for the RSPCA said: "It's important to remember not to leave any animal in a car or caravan, or in a conservatory or outbuilding, where temperatures can quickly rise to 47 degrees Celsius which can result in death."
Last month, RSPCA inspector Anthony Joynes left a thermometer in his van in 15C heat and left it for an hour to see what temperature it would reach inside his vehicle. Within just 60 minutes, the temperature had climbed to 43.5C.
Inspector Joynes said: "In an emergency, it is best to dial 999 and report a dog in a hot car to police. The RSPCA may not be able to attend quickly enough and, with no powers of entry, we'd need police assistance at such an incident.
"If the animal is displaying any sign of heatstroke - such as panting heavily, drooling excessively, is lethargic or uncoordinated, or collapsed and vomiting ...
