But, first, we have a favour to ask you
David, Rodna and Amanda are currently reviewingPlay+Train and working on two new group programs plus two workshops. Later this week, you may receive an invitation to an online survey asking for your input on 'old' and new GMSDT services. We would love you to complete the survey if you receive an invitation. (It's mostly 'tick-a-box' with a few opportunities to type in comments if you wish. It will take 5 - 10 minutes, depending on how much you have to say :-)
Is your dog's diet keeping up with their age?
According to Vet Dr Melissa Meehan, it’s essential to review our dog's diet as they age.

Moved or changed your contact details (e.g. mobile phone number)? Did you update your pet's microchip data?
Lara Shannon inIs Your Pet’s Microchip Up To Date?explains why that's vital. "Each chip has a unique number that is detected using a microchip scanner. The microchip number is recorded on a database registry with details about the animal and owner. Should your pet stray or become lost, vets, animal shelters and local councils can scan your pet for a microchip and contact you via the database."
Lara also suggests you ask your vet to regularly scan the chip to ensure it is readable and hasn’t moved around within your dog's body.
