Do you have a great pet tip? Share it here and read some top tips from other pet lovers. I have a small-med Pug X Staffy. We keep him cool in summer by filling a washing bucket with just enough water so he can jump in and cool his paws (I am told dogs release body heat from paws) and legs off. We even put some toys in there and he taught himself to dip his head in to cool off (and play)! Just make sure the water isn't too high (your dog's leg length). Hey presto!

A great way to do that and keep them entertained at the same time is with frozen bone treats. All you have to do is get some smaller sized bones from your butcher, place them in a plastic cup, add a few dog biscuits and a weak stock mix, just made from hot water and stock powder. The hot water will partly dissolve the dog biscuits, adding to the flavour. Place in the freezer until frozen solid. Push the frozen block out of the cup and your dog will happily sit and lick all day with the bonus of a bone to chew at the end. topics:   pet tips article Cat toys The best thing I have ever done for my kitten is to buy a ball of wool and create little balls she can bat around, play with and chase. I add in a long hanging piece which I can swing around for her to leap at. They're so much fun. My three-year-old and five-year-old cats are as playful as kittens again — it's so exciting to see, it keeps them fit and you can see a sparkle in their eyes. Cheap and hours of fun — something all cats and their owners can enjoy. topics:   pet tips
