A Fresh Start to 2020

Happy New Year everyone, we hope 2020 is starting off with a bang and treating you all well so far!

Here are some of our Tips for a fresh start, NEW year NEW you, well maybe not a new you but maybe an improved you haha.


So, let’s talk goals / intentions / resolutions: Did you know “exercise more” is the single-most common New Year’s resolution? Yet, according to a survey conducted by Bodybuilding.com, 73 percent give up on their fitness goals before achieving them.

So if your someone who wanted to set some new fitness goals but haven’t followed through in the past or seriously just not sure where to start and don’t want to get overwhelmed by the whole fitness industry/gyms, then just lace up those runners and EXERCISE WITH YOUR POOCH. Take him out for a nice stroll it’s both great for you and your pet just to get your body moving.

2. DECLUTTER your home and buy some fresh sheets.

That feeling when you get into fresh clean bed sheets, yeah you know the one I’m talking about and that feeling is even better when the sheets are brand spanking new!! Same goes for your pet they deserve a fresh new bed every year too.

3. Take your VITAMINS-

Dogs need vitamins too! This dog New Year’s resolution is all about making sure your pet has the right nutrients for their health.

Don’t just start feeding supplements willy-nilly, though. Before you start any supplement or vitamin, it’s a good idea to talk to the vet about what might be the most beneficial for your pet.

5. Go to the DENTIST/ Get pearlier whites

It may not be the most glamorous of resolutions, sure. But don’t “brush” off the importance of a great smile. (Pardon the pun haha )

This year, you can also resolve to improve your dog’s dental hygiene to reduce the risk of gum disease, lost teeth, bad breath, and even heart problems- See you’re Vet for more details on how to improve your dog’s dental hygiene.

6. Get even SMARTER

It’s never too late- Take a short course, Read a book, Listen to a Blog there are so many things to do to help activate the learning parts of your brain and many of us just go about our business doing the same things every day that we stop continuing to educate ourselves.

 Also consider choosing things for your dog that challenge their brain.

You can resolve to practice a new trick with them every month and positively reinforce their progress with delicious snacks. Or try an awesome food puzzle toy that will be both challenging and tasty.

7. Do things you have never done.

Are there places you want to see that you never get to that are actually in your neighbourhood?

Every month try a new activity and go on an adventure. Put it in your diary as an appointment so you don’t continue to blow it off.

Take your dog and go for a swim at a beach you don’t normally visit, Check out dog friendly trails you have been meaning to go to, Go to a new Café and try something different off the menu you wouldn’t normally eat, Ring a friend and go for a walk with their dog too rather than just going out for dinner or drinks.

The options are endless and changing things up can give you and your dog a new perspective, a fun experience, and tons of exciting sights and smells.

Here’s to a great new year!

10 Reasons why buying a Premium bed is so important.

Looking for the perfect bed to suit your Dog? Possibly something really soft or maybe something for the old girl that’s good for their joints and bones? We believe your pet deserves the best bed for a perfect night’s sleep so here are the top 10 reasons why buying a premium bed is so important and worth every penny.

  • It’s a piece of Décor not just a dog bed.

We all know those old school hideous brown paw print beds! Well they are no longer- well no longer a T&S product anyway haha our designer Bree comes from an Interior Design background so when she came on board 6 years ago creating a product that didn’t stick out and suited the tone and matched your décor was a huge feature she wanted to share.

  • Choice of colours

T&S have a huge range of colours available to choose from, we understand that not all homes change up their interior style with current trends (who can afford that) and may prefer a plain grey bed to a pink linen, so we produce a range of different colours and textures to suit everyone’s needs.

  • Huge range of sizes

This is a big one! We know it’s super easy to get small beds from everywhere but how many of you especially with larger breeds find companies that sell beds big enough for a great dane or even a bullmastiff? Well here at T&S we do! We stock sizes of bedding from a rabbit all the way to a small horse aka a Great Dane haha

  • Bed with sides

Our Sorrento bed is one of the highest sided premium dog bed on the market. With both a high back and sides it allows your pet to feel comfortable, safe, warm and secure.

  • Orthopedic bed

Dogs are just like humans, as they age so do their joints and bones. Our slumber pet mat is ideal as it’s not high off the ground and the Australian Dunlop convoluted foam inside helps to spread the pet’s weight evenly and relieve those pressure points. The super soft cover also adds that extra softness and comfort your pet needs.

Convoluted Dunlop Foam
  • Washing made easy

Here at T&S we understand that dog beds can be an absolute pain to wash- especially the big ones so we have a huge range of bedding that is 100% completely removable and washable to make that super easy for you.

  • Australian Foam

A LOT of our products are filled with either a piece of foam or crumbed foam that we crumb ourselves. The foam we use is Australian made from Dunlop, all Dunlop foam is treated with Ultrafresh.

Ultrafresh inhibits bacterial fungal growth and dust mite proliferation.

Ultrafresh assists with the prevention of allergies and asthma

  • Their own bed (not yours)

Want your pet off your bed or off the couch? Well for starters you need to entice them to an even better location to sleep on! And here at T&S we have so many luxurious, soft and enticing dog beds to choose from.

  • The Perfect Sleep

Did you know that dogs sleep around 12-14 hours a day? And that’s just the beginning puppy’s need as much at 18-20 hours and older dogs and certain breeds also need more rest. With that in mind you want to make sure that your dog is getting the perfect sleep seen as they spend a good deal of their day asleep on their bed.

  • Your dog will love you.

And finally…. what better excuse to get a premium luxury dog bed than your dog loving you even more! Your dog’s deserve the very best and that is a T&S Dog Bed.

Understanding human foods that your dogs can and cannot eat.

Ask yourself can my dog eat this?

Dogs and humans metabolize foods differently.

For this reason, some foods are safe for humans to eat but may be toxic and potentially deadly for dogs.

On the other hand, there are many human foods that are perfectly safe and even healthy for dogs to eat as an occasional treat.

In this article we will go through 10 different foods your dog can and cannot eat that are commonly questionable foods.

Foods your dog Can and Cannot Eat

1. Carrots: Can Eat

Both raw and cooked carrots are safe for your dog to eat.

Carrots are low in calories and a good source of vitamins, minerals and fibre. This makes them a very healthy food for your dog to snack on.

Before feeding carrots to your dog, make sure to cut them into bite-size pieces to prevent choking.

2. Grapes and Raisins: Can’t Eat

You should never feed grapes or raisins to your dog.

Grapes and raisins contain toxic compounds that are harmful to dogs. They have the potential to lead to rapid kidney failure and death. Even small amounts of grapes and raisins can make your dog sick, so it’s important to avoid giving them to your dog altogether.

3. Peanut Butter: Can Eat

Peanut butter is a healthy and safe treat for dogs to eat in moderate amounts.

However, it is best to limit your dog’s peanut butter intake. Since peanut butter is high in fat and calories, it may lead to weight gain if he eats too much.

Also, make sure to feed your dog plain, unsalted peanut butter. Peanut butter commonly has extra ingredients added to it, such as salt, which could be harmful to your dog.

4. Eggs: Can Eat

Cooked eggs are perfectly safe and nutritious for dogs to eat.

One medium egg provides some of almost every vitamin and mineral, plus lots of protein. There are claims that eggs may also help relieve nausea in dogs, although there is no scientific evidence behind this claim.

It is important to note that you should avoid feeding raw eggs to your dog. While dogs typically do not get sick from eating raw eggs, bacteria, such as Salmonella, can spread from the dog to its human owners, increasing their risk of infection.

5. Chocolate: Can’t Eat

It is widely known that dogs should never eat chocolate.

This is because chocolate contains theobromine and caffeine, two stimulants that dogs cannot efficiently metabolize.

If your dog eats chocolate, he may exhibit symptoms like vomiting, diarrhea and dehydration. These symptoms may lead to more serious complications, such as internal bleeding, muscle tremors, seizures and death.

Darker and less sweet varieties of chocolate, such as cocoa powder and unsweetened baker’s chocolate, are more poisonous to dogs than sweetened varieties, such as milk chocolate.

Nevertheless, do not feed your dog any type of chocolate.

6. Cheese: Limit

Cheese is safe for most dogs to eat in small quantities.

Due to the fat and lactose content of cheese, some dogs may have digestive symptoms, such as stomach pain and diarrhoea, after eating it.

To avoid unpleasant symptoms, it is best to introduce cheese into your dog’s diet gradually. It may also help to only feed your dog low-fat cheeses, such as mozzarella.

7. Onions: Can’t Eat

You should never feed your dog onions.

Onions contain N-propyl disulfide, a compound that is toxic to dogs. It can damage your dog’s red blood cells, reducing their ability to carry oxygen through the body. This often results in a condition called anemia .

Anemia in dogs is characterized by a variety of symptoms, including lethargy, weakness, decreased appetite and fainting. In severe cases, dogs with anemia may need a blood transfusion.

It is important to note that all components and forms of onions are toxic to dogs, even the leaves, juice and processed powders, such as onion powder.

8. Bread: Can Eat

Plain white or whole grain bread is safe for most dogs to eat as an occasional treat.

Before feeding your dog bread, make sure it doesn’t contain any extra ingredients, such as raisins, which could be potentially harmful.

Additionally, keep in mind that bread, along with other foods, adds extra calories to your dog’s diet and may cause weight gain if he eats too much.

9. Avocado: Can’t Eat

Avocados should never be consumed by dogs.

This is because they contain a toxin called persin, which is known to be very poisonous to dogs. It may lead to fluid accumulation in their lungs and chest, which can cause breathing difficulties, oxygen deprivation and even death.

Persin is found in all parts of the avocado, including the fruit, pit, leaves and bark. Thus, you should always keep avocados away from your dog.

10. Milk: Limit

You should prevent your dog from drinking too much milk.

Lactose intolerance is common in dogs, which may cause loose stools, gas, vomiting, stomach pain and diarrhea.

Some dogs are able to tolerate small quantities of milk as an occasional treat, but they should not drink more than a few tablespoons of milk per day.

More Information-

Above are just a small number of foods that can and cannot be eaten by your dog.

All foods should be introduced to your dog’s diet gradually so that you can monitor them for any allergic reactions etc.

Like humans, All dogs are different and some may be able to eat certain things while others may not. Even if a food is deemed “safe” it may not be suitable for your particular dog to eat.

All foods should be eaten in moderation to help prevent weight gain and any other negative effects.

We advise not to leave your dog alone when giving them a new food to try.

For further information and more specific guidelines regarding serving sizes etc please ask your local veterinarian.

If your dog eats a harmful food consult your veterinarian immediately or call the pet poison hotline.

You should never treat or medicate a dog unless a licensed veterinarian advises you to do so.
