Dogs suffer from allergies and skin conditions just like humans do ... 

Atopy (also known as eczema in humans) accounts for around 80% of allergies in dogs. Atopy is the most difficult form of allergy to treat since it is rarely possible to prevent exposure to airborne allergens like pollens, dust mites or mould spores.

Staffies in particular tend suffer from a fairly high rate of allergies that can cause skin itching and secondary infections. 


Depending on the severity of these flare ups, your vet can recommend anti-inflammatory medications (cortisone-based injections, tablets or sprays) but you may want to explore natural alternatives like the Good Boy Bones range.

The Story behind Good Boy Bones 

Despite being fed the best foods, Bones was still getting itchy skin rashes and allergies every now and then. When your dog loves belly rubs just as much as Bones, you can't have itchy rashes getting in the way!

All of the natural ingredients used in the range have been well researched and carefully selected based on their healing and protective properties. "We use only natural ingredients in our products - because if you're like me, you love to lick everything!" said Bones. 


All Good Boy Bones products are proudly handcrafted here in Australia but "our mission is to offer high-quality healing products for dogs everywhere" added Bones.

A ‘paw-some’ way to celebrate National Dog Day 2019 

It’s long been known that dogs are man’s best friend, so it will come as no surprise that there is an entire day, which is dedicated to our canine companions. Now in its 15th year, National Dog Day is celebrated annually on August 26th to highlight the number of rescue dogs in need of a forever home, while also recognising the love dogs bring into people’s lives.

While there are already over 4.8 million dogs owners in Australia [1], dog ownership is on the rise with 600,000 new dogs finding homes between 2013 and 2016. Clearly a nation of dog lovers, you don’t need to be a dog owner to celebrate this national day or enjoy all the benefits of a four-legged friend.

According to house and pet sitting company TrustedHousesitters, dog sitting has grown in popularity across the UK and globally in recent yearsAngela Laws, Community Manager of TrustedHousesitters says: “Between 2018 and 2019, we have seen an 18% increase in the number of dog sits available in Australia and a 35% increase globally which shows just how popular dog sitting is becoming as a new travel trend.

“It’s the perfect way for dog lovers, longing for the company of a canine companion, to sit and stay in a home away from home in the company of some adorable dogs. With members in over 130 countries, we are creating connections across the world while helping to keep more dogs happy at home when their owners travel.”

Dog lovers like Ann Repp from Denmark, are among the thousands of sitters spending National Dog Day in the company of other people’s dogs.

“Travelling has been a part of my life since I was old enough to grab a backpack and go exploring. I have always been a huge dog lover and not having my own dog is the only thing I really miss living life on the road, dog sitting lets me have the best of both worlds and has given me a bit of the sweet life with loving dogs, even though saying goodbye to my new best four legged friends at the end of a sit can be a little heartbreaking. Joining TrustedHousesitters has enabled me to keep living my dream life on the road and still get slices of home life around the globe. I love being part of this community". 

To celebrate National Dog Day, we’ve rounded up some of the most adorable dogs and their exceptional homes both here in Australia and overseas available on TrustedHousesitters.

Whether you’re after a city escape in Melbourne, a relaxing retreat on the Sunshine Coast or a getaway in the hills of Italy, these beautiful homes will guarantee dog-loving travellers an unforgettable experience in the company of some seriously adorable new friends.

Pawsitively good news for animal lovers: a new wine range that helps pets in need has been unleashed on the market! 

The Sit Stay Society range consists of half bottle wines, with 50 cents of every bottle sold donated to PetRescue’s free adoption programs and services – working towards a future where every pet is safe, respected and loved.

“We are thrilled to have Sit Stay Society wines come onboard to raise funds for PetRescue,” said Vickie Davy, PetRescue co-founder and joint CEO.

“With 100,000 pets still killed in pounds and shelters in Australia every year, there’s so much work to be done in this space, and funding is crucial to impact. We are incredibly grateful for the support of Sit Stay Society wines to help us realise our vision of an Australia where every pet is safe, respected and loved. And if you can enjoy a wine and help pets at the same time, we say cheers to that!”

The wines are a joint initiative by BWS and Dan Murphy’s, who will be retailing the wines exclusively.

“Our customers love wine and many of them are passionate about animals as well. It’s nice to be able to give them the chance to support a great cause while enjoying delicious wines at the same time,” said Chris Mattes, Head of Wine at BWS.

The Sit Stay Society labels are homages to popular dog breeds; Toby’s Shiraz Tempranillo Clare Valley 2017 is adorned by an illustration of a French Bulldog, while Max’s Cabernet Malbec Clare Valley 2018 has a King Charles Cavalier sketch.

“We are planning on expanding the range with further breeds and wine varieties this year, including white wine and rosé options,” Chris added.

The wines come in 375ml bottle sizes (half size bottles), a wine trend that’s gathering pace in Australia.

“If you open a full bottle of wine you should ideally drink it within a few days to avoid the worst effects of oxidation, so a half bottle is the perfect solution for those wanting to avoid
unnecessary waste,” he added.

Sit Stay Society Toby’s Shiraz Tempranillo Clare Valley 2017 and Sit Stay Society Max’s Cabernet Malbec Clare Valley 2018 are available now and retail for $10 per bottle at BWS, and are also available at Dan Murphy’s.

Advanced Pet Care of Australia is an Australian owned pet food & supplies manufacturer based in Perth, Western Australia and was founded in 1993. Since then we have been manufacturing pet supplies and supplying markets around the globe with high quality premium products. Everyone at Advanced Pet Care of Australia is an animal lover, so we can guarantee that we never compromise on quality and this is why we are excited to bring you the Cherish Pet Food range.

Cherish Pet Food has been created from the ground up by one of Australia’s leading pet nutritionists Emeritus Professor Nick Costa. Professor Costa has spent his life teaching nutrition and biochemistry to veterinarians at Murdoch University and has also consulted and sat on boards for some of the biggest names in the animal health care industry.

Cherish is an all natural pet food using hormone free chicken and Tasmanian salmon as the major protein source which makes up over 80% of the protein in the range. They are also our number one ingredient which means they are main ingredients in the pet food. Coupled with these meat protein sources is the ancient grain, sorghum which is gluten free, low GI and contains zero GMO, making the Cherish range suitable for households that value gluten-free, sustainable pet foods.

Cherish has a focus not only on sound scientific nutrition for the wellbeing of the body but also on good brain health across the entire range with the addition of our hero ingredient, COCO MCT™


Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs), have been scientifically proven to promote / improve good cognitive function, especially in senior dogs. So whether it is at the puppy/kitten stage making them more alert and easier to train, the adult stage making them happier and more active or at the senior end of the spectrum slowing down the onset of doggy dementia (canine cognitive decline), COCO MCT™ is a vital ingredient and sets Cherish apart.

We then have added just the right amount of super foods such as turmeric, chia seeds, chick peas, apple, cranberries, blueberries and tomato as well as essential vitamins, minerals with trace minerals such zinc also present in chelate form and essential oils and you have a quality super-premium pet food that will be extremely nutritious for your four-legged family member.


With over 90% of ingredients being sourced from Australian farmers you have an Australian made, owned and majority sourced premium pet food. Cherish also comes with an 100% palatability guarantee.

Cherish comes in three canine age ranges:

✔️ Playful Puppy which has 32% Protein and 17% Fat
✔️ Amazing Adult which has 28% Protein and 15% Fat and
✔️ Super 7 Years+ which has 29% Protein and 14% Fat.

The Cherish dog food formulas are all available in a 3kg, 8kg or 15kg size.

Cherish also has the feline of the family covered with an all life stage Complete Cat which has 35% Protein and 15% Fat and comes in a 3kg or 8kg size. 

Price & Where to Buy

RRP: from $28.99 (3kg) to $110.99 (15kg). Cherish has been designed to be affordable for all households wanting a super premium pet food.

New research reveals that it really is a dog’s life! 

One million Australians sleep alongside their dogs while they are also regularly going on holidays, visiting cafes, going shopping and heading to work with their ‘fur babies’.

New research released today has revealed the true nature of our relationships with our dogs, and the pampered lives our ‘fur babies’ are living as a result.

The Elanco Aussie Dog Survey[1] found that seven out of ten dog owners (72%) now consider their dog to be part of the family, while 16% describe their dog as ‘a mate or friend’ and just 12% describe their dog as ‘a pet’. It also found more dogs are sleeping in their owners’ bed at night (27%) than are sleeping outside the home (21%). This means there are more than one million Australians sleeping with their dog every night[2].

The research also reveals that we are treating our dogs as if they are people:
  • 42% celebrate their dog’s birthday
  • 1 in 3 cook their dog its own meals 
  • 42% ‘only buy the best food and products’ for their dog, and 
  • 32% regularly buy gifts for their dog. 

Aussie dogs are also living very social lives, with younger dog owners leading this trend. Nearly half of all dog owners (47%) take their dogs on holiday at least once a year – while this increases to 60% of Gen Z dog owners. Dogs are also joining their owners at cafes and restaurants (32% on average vs 57% of Gen Zs), at the shops (26% on average vs 52% of Gen Zs) and at work (14% take their dog to work at least once a month vs 29% of Gen Zs). Meanwhile, 80% of Aussie dogs are regularly exercising with their owner (62% once a week or more, 30% every day) and two thirds (67%) regularly visit dog parks.

Annika from Darling Point is representative of many dog owners as she lets her dog sleep in her bed, crafts specialised meals for each of her pets and takes her dog on holidays with her.

However, alongside all this love and pampering is widespread risky behaviour that could be helping to spread parasites, such as tapeworm, from dogs to people. In addition to the one million dog owners sleeping with their dog each night, the survey reveals that 2 in 3 (62%) aren’t concerned about their dog spreading parasites to people and therefore aren’t taking adequate precautions. For example, only 35% of owners said they always wash their hands after their touching their dog while 58% let their dog lick their hands, and 36% let their dog lick their face.

Dr Claude Stanislaus, Technical Veterinary Manager at Elanco Animal Health, says that we need to remember that while we love our dogs, they are not people and a casual approach to dog hygiene can actually help spread nasty parasites to people.

“Unlike us dogs do not take daily showers, they stick their noses in each other’s bottoms, they sometimes eat animal poo if they find it, and we then hug them and invite them into our beds! What a lot of people don’t realise is that we could also be inviting harmful parasites such as hydatid tapeworm into our bed too.”

“Even if you have the cleanest, most well cared for dog, you can’t vouch for any of the canine friends that they hang out with. A lot of people don’t know that parasites like tapeworm and other intestinal worms can spread from dogs to people. And while rare, cases of hydatid tapeworm being transferred from dogs to humans can lead to serious illness in people, and in very extreme cases, even death.”

The research also found that 31% of all dog owners are not picking up after their dog poos in public, this increases to 44% of Gen Z and 39% of Millennial dog owners. This behaviour could inadvertently be leading to health risks, as tapeworm can be spread to people through contact with dog poo.

The Elanco study also looked at spending patterns and surprisingly, Gen Z dog owners are most likely to be pampering their dogs. A third of young owners (32%) say they spend more than $3,000 per year on their dog, more than they spend on phone and internet access or public transport[3]. The research also found almost half (45%) of all owners are spending more than $1,800 a year on their dog.

“Aussie dogs have never had so much fun, going on holidays with us and even sleeping in our beds, but it’s important to know that ‘normal behaviour’ like this can also increase the risk of spreading parasites from your dog to you and your family.

“Simple steps such as washing your hands after playing with your dog, regularly de-worming your dog with a broad-spectrum all-wormer product and making sure you regularly pick up your dog’s droppings so nasties such as hydatid tapeworm can’t be transferred to people, are all simple things we can do to protect our furry family members, and us, from intestinal worms,” said Dr Stanislaus.

Facts about Hydatid Tapeworm

Source: Department of Agriculture and Food, 
Western Australia

1. Hydatid tapeworms are very small parasites found in the intestines of dogs and other canines (e.g. foxes).
2. In dogs, the hydatid tapeworm does not cause any obvious disease, however if transmitted to people it can cause a potentially serious, and sometimes fatal, disease called hydatidosis.
3. People contract this disease when they ingest hydatid eggs shed in the faeces of infected dogs.
4. Accidental ingestion can happen through hand-to-mouth transfer after close contact with dogs (e.g. whose fur is contaminated with eggs) or contact with dog faeces containing hydatid eggs.
5. Treating your dog at least every 6 weeks with a product that kills hydatid tapeworm reduces the risk of contracting this deadly disease.

Other findings from Elanco Aussie Dog Survey:

  • Dog owners in the metropolitan suburbs, and women, are more likely say that their dog is part of the family (74% and 77%) while dog owners in rural areas are less likely (67%).
  • Less than 5% of dog owners think their dog is dirty, while 40% think their dog is clean. 
  • 88% of dog owners are under the impression their dog is protected against all of the ‘Big 5’ parasites (ticks, fleas, heartworm, intestinal worms and tapeworm). 
  • More than three quarters of dog owners (77%) got their dog for the company and companionship, while 42% got their dog to reduce stress and 23% to encourage them to exercise more. Meanwhile, 21% got their dog to help entertain the kids, 26% for security and 7% received their dog as a gift. 
  • It’s not just the basics where our dogs are hitting our hip pocket with half of all dog owners (47%) saying where they choose to go on holiday is influenced by their dog while 46% say their dog has affected their housing choice. Meanwhile, 1 in 5 say their dog affects their purchasing decisions when it comes to the clothes they wear, the furniture they have and the car they drive (all 20%). 

  • Dog owners in the inner city are:
- more likely to take their dog to cafes and restaurants (61%), shopping (49%) and on holidays (41%)
- more likely to outsource key parts of dog ownership include dog walking (18% vs 7% on average), dog sitting during the work day (33% vs 22% on average) dog washing (28% vs 24% on average)
- spending more on their dog – with 56% spending more than $150 per month and 20% spending more than $250.

  • Dog owners in rural areas are:
- more likely to say their dog sleep in their bed with them (33%), hug their dog (84%) and cook their dog its own meals (37%)
- less likely to let their dog lick their face (25%) or hands (54%)
- spending less on their dog – 68% spend less than $150 per month, compared to 55% on average.

  • Owners of big dogs are:
- more likely to celebrate their dog’s birthday (46%)
- more likely to let their dog lick their hands (60%)
- spending more on their dogs, with 58% spending more than $150 on their dog each month and 14% spending more than $250)
- more likely to say their dog has impacted their choice of home (51%) and the type of car they drive (33%).

  • Owners of small dogs are:
 - more likely to cook their dog its own meals (35%), put music on for their dog (23%), get ‘only the best products’ for their dog (45%) and outsource grooming (44% vs 33% on average)
- more likely to let their dogs lick their face (41%) and sleep in their bed (39%) and least likely to wash their hands after touching their dog (32%).
