Best Friends, The Best in Pet Care
New at Best Friends: SavourLife Health Source Superfood

SavourLife is a familiar brand in Best Friends stores, but we are excited to announce their latest product, HealthSource Superfood all natural dog food! Just like SavourLife dog treats, SavourLife dog food is all Australian-made and owned, with only the best local ingredients in every bag.

The  word “walkies” (or whatever the word may be) is one that gets tails instantly wagging. As a pet parent is there anything better than a trip to the dog park on the weekend? It’s almost a ritual with a coffee stop on the way, then catching up with the “regulars” at the park and somehow despite chatting to the owner almost every week, you only know the name of their dog.
Park visits call for a ‘dog park kit’ and Best Friends have all the essentials (and more) in store. See our checklist below – does your kit need an update?

Preventing Resource Guarding

Some young puppies are prone to guarding behaviour because they have had to compete with their littermates for limited amounts of food. Teaching your puppy to eat when you are around will prevent aggressive food guarding later on in life.

How to prevent food guarding:

Dogs learn quickly in their first year of life, and what they experience will shape their behaviour through adulthood. Because of this, it's important that you educate yourself to give your puppy the best start possible.

Before bringing the puppy home, check that your home and yard are secure and free of hazards like toxic chemicals, compost, old bones or other small chewable objects.

Every year, pet shelters and rescue groups need extra support to help pets in need.

Thanks to the generosity of our pet loving customers and team members last year, the campaign raised over $30,000 in food, products and Pet eCash vouchers to support shelter pets over the Christmas period in 2015.

This year, it's even easier to support shelter pets! 

Your dog could win a year's worth of dog grooming!
