Dog Food Manufacturers Recall Dangerous Batches
The three manufacturers
Royal Canin, Hills Science Plan and Burns, but they are not alone.
Numerous other manufacturers may use questionable
ingredients and dubious practices. Hills has had to
recall batches of food this month, that could put
dogs at serious risk of vitamin D poisoning, It
appears dogs have died. Read the article and tell me

The Annual Christmas party was held on 13th December. A cheque for £1700 was
presented to Search Dogs Sussex.
At long last, there appears to
be some progress on treating this dreadful disease. The
Royal Veterinary College have announced that they have
discovered similarities between CRGV and a rare but serious
disease in Humans. A plasma exchange treatment for Dogs has
been developed, which effectively filters the affected dogs
blood and removes toxic substances including that which
causes CRVG. Whilst it is early days and only a third of
those dogs treated survivied, it is an improvement on
virtually no dogs surviving. Needles to say the cause of it
is still a mystery.
WHY WE ARE THE CHEAPEST DOG TRAINING
We get numerous telephone calls
from people wishing to train their dogs with us and when
told the fees they are astonished and we usually get "That's
cheap!" . We have run Bognor Regis & District Dog
Training Club for over fifty years on a non-profit making
basis. We need to cover the cost of running the club
which includes the ever increasing cost of hiring the hall
for two evenings a week
We are definitely NOT inferior
to the other more expensive Dog training clubs in the area.
All of our ten Trainers are fully qualified with the
majority having been Trainers for many years and all are
unpaid Volunteers. We cater not only for the "pet"
market, but also for people who wish to enter their dogs for
competition or for the show ring. Our three yearly
terms are between twelve and fourteen weeks (depending on
where Easter falls each Spring). For this our fees
are £25.00 per term for each dog. In addition, we
charge £3.00 a year club subscription for each club member.
In 2017 the Club celebrated
its 50th Anniversary.
