Caring for Deerhounds
Well, we’ve had a home / kennel (call it what you will) re-fit week here at Rogue acres and little time to be blogging. But any resident hound in Scotland might be interested in responding to the Consultation on the Draft Dog Welfare Code of Practice: A Consultation Document issued by the Rural Directorate of the Scottish Government. Use your hound sense and as per usual click the above links or if you prefer download the pdf here.
If you are a Scottish deerhound or deerhound owner or breeder living in Scotland (or any canine or canine owner for that matter) - it’s your civic duty to respond. You only have until the 1st of May, best get them paws busy.
There’s a lot to consider:
The need for A SUITABLE ENVIRONMENT
The need for A SUITABLE DIET
The need to BE ABLE TO EXHIBIT NORMAL BEHAVIOUR PATTERNS
The need to BE HOUSED WITH, OR APART FROM OTHER ANIMALS
The need to BE PROTECTED FROM PAIN, SUFFERING, INJURY AND DISEASE.
