Lost Dog  found

A small black Spaniel type dog has been found wandering in the campo in the Kil 12 area  of Torrox    The dog is female and has a red collar .  For more information please call Diana on 951834441


Observation re Pet Dogs  I speak as a Brit living out here for winters only with our small dog who travels everywhere with us.
To fellow Brits and other expats, please don’t leave your animals here in Spain when you leave the country for whatever reason.  It adds to the dreadful problem and burden  of homeless animals here and takes a home that would have been given to a Spanish dog or cat.   If there is no alternative than to part with your animal take your animals home. Re-home them there where they are at least in your own country and you have perhaps a bigger chance of getting the home they deserve. I am aware that the charities there are under great pressure too but wouldn’t turn you away. Some dogs featured here have even had passports, so no problem. Getting a  pet passport is no longer the hassle and expense it used to be.
Surely they deserve that?    What happened to that slogan….a dog is for life not just for Christmas?      Anthea (Torrox Pueblo)

Recommendation for Steven Rowle Animal Behaviour   From -Frank Wall Competa   Our GSD cross appeared to have aggressive tendencies to other dogs, particularly small dogs. Taking him out in the village became a rather stressful experience. Steve came to visit us and suggested a course of sessions. Pretty much straight away we noticed a difference in the dog’s behaviour. Steven discovered that the dog was not in fact aggressive but rather frightened. Our dog is now much calmer and manageable and a pleasure to take out. Part of the process involved teaching us how to react with our dog. Money well spent I think!  Frank W            665 235 689   951 209 241   stevenrowle@outlook.com Steven Rowle is certificated by the IAABC. International Association of Behavioural Consultants
