dog advice

I am passionate about dog advice & making life better for every dog I encounter. I am forever gathering information for my own use in the day-to-day running of a house full of dogs, so I blog a lot of what I find. I also blog when I need to rant about something that needs to be ranted about. I hope you enjoy my blog. I’ve blogged about topics ranging from dietary info to grooming to behavioural issues. If what you are looking for isn’t on the blog, please contact me at grace@rrruffhouse.com and I will see what I can do.
