Dog Danger: Keeping Your Dog Safe in the Garden

With summer having arrived – enjoy it while you can! - a lot of us will be spending time in the garden.  It might mean watching the kids play, or doing essential summer gardening jobs, welcoming the grand children with a paddling pool and other fun activities.  And by your side will be your faithful friend or friends – dogs love the garden too but it can present many dangers to them.

Cwm-Yr-Eglwys Beach, Pembrokeshire, Father's day 2017,

On Father's Day we visited a new (to us) beach in Pembrokeshire, Cwm-Yr-Eglwys (Valley of the Church).  The great thing about living here is that even though we go to new beaches all the time (and keep visiting our old favourites, of course) there is still a vast amount of Pembrokeshire Coastline that we have yet to explore.  We love this challenge!  Here's what we got up to and all the information you need to visit here too:
