How to deal with ticks on your dog.

How to deal with ticks on your dog.

Ticks are not particularly nice things, and they can pass disease onto your dog. Unfortunately, sooner or later your dog will pick up a tick or two. My dog has attracted a few, mostly around his face. This is usually when he’s been running around in long grass or woodland. A tick is best dealt with straight away. Most tick-borne diseases take between 24 and 36 hours to get passed to your dog, so speed…

What do I write about in a blog?

What do I write about in a blog?

A blog should be the hub of your online presence. This can either be as a distinct part of your main website or integrated within it. On average, companies that blog enjoy 55% more web traffic than those that don’t! Of course, writing a blog takes time and effort but remember that search engines love blogs as they are a source of fresh, up to date content. Once you have your blog up and running…

Lintbells YuMOVE – Joint Support for Active dogs

Lintbells YuMOVE – Joint Support for Active dogs

I own a Cocker Spaniel, an active dog. He likes nothing more that running about on a beach or field, preferably  chasing a tennis ball. No matter how long you play this game, he never tires of it. I’ve noticed that he has a pronounced limp in one of his hind legs, the day after running around a lot. I had a chat to vet about his limp. She ruled out any arthritic problems as…

Exploring the Yorkshire Coast – Scarborough Beaches

Exploring the Yorkshire Coast – Scarborough Beaches

Scarborough North Bay Scarborough has two bays, North and South, each quite different. The North Bay is quieter of the two bays and has a wide expanse of sandy beach at low tide. I usually walk from the southern end (Marine Drive and headland) to the Sea Life Sanctuary (white triangular buildings). This takes you past the Freddie Gilroy sculpture, cafes, flats, shops, beach huts, miniature railway and back. The beach is quite busy at…

Exploring the Yorkshire Coast – Cornelian Bay

Exploring the Yorkshire Coast – Cornelian Bay

Starting out Cornelian Bay lies between the headland of White Nab, south of Scarborough’s South Bay and Knipe Point just north of Cayton Bay. The Cleveland Way footpath runs along the clifftop for the length of the bay. The relative inaccessibility of the bay, means that even on the busiest bank holiday, the number of people on the beach can be counted on one hand. Cornelian Bay is a fantastic place for a peaceful walk….

Exploring the Yorkshire Coast – Cayton Bay

Exploring the Yorkshire Coast – Cayton Bay

I have been visiting Cayton Bay for nearly fifty years. In all that time it hasn’t changed much. It is a beautiful place to explore, whatever time of the year you visit. The Bay is about a kilometre and a half wide and is very popular with surfers, anglers, dog walkers and bird watchers. Low tide exposes some rocky outcrops and large areas of sandy beach. Check tide times at UK Tide Times. Cliffs back…

Exploring the Yorkshire Coast – Filey Bay

If you have a dog, Filey Bay is a great place to walk him or her. Much of the Bay has a large, sandy beach. The full bay stretches from Filey Brigg at the northern end through Filey town, Primrose Valley and Hunmanby Gap. It continues past Reighton to Speeton Sands at the southern end, a walk of five miles. You can start this walk at several points along the bay making for a short…
