If you have a dog, you know that accidents happen. You also maybe thought your days of cleaning up puddles were long behind you. But even the best trained dogs can slip up from time to time, and this becomes even more true for senior dogs. As pups age, they often develop dog incontinence — the involuntary inability to hold their urine — so you may notice a few more messes around the house.

At Dog Quality, we’re dedicated to making senior dogs’ later years their happiest yet. Teaching your pup new tricks can be a fun way to enhance his quality of life and bond with him at the same time. We know from firsthand experience that dogs are never too old to learn. In fact, training can help to exercise dogs’ brains and keep their minds sharp. Ready to learn how to train a stubborn dog to do new tricks? Here’s what to do.

At Dog Quality, our top priority is to support senior dogs in their aging journey and give them the dignity they deserve. While arthritis will likely limit your dog’s mobility and slow him down, no dog should have to suffer in pain. Fortunately, there are many ways to manage your dog’s arthritis at home.

Remember when you first brought your dog home? Whether he was a puppy or a rescue, he was probably full of energy and excited to start his life with his forever family. He probably jumped at every opportunity to go for a walk or run around the dog park with his furry friends. As your dog ages, though, you might have noticed that he’s ready to go home sooner than he used to be. Maybe he avoids going for walks or no longer wants to play with other dogs. That’s because dogs, like humans, slow down as they reach their senior years.

In a perfect world, we’d all be able to take our dogs with us wherever we go. Fortunately, Aberdeen is an incredibly dog-friendly city and there’s always somewhere to take your furry friend. As our dogs get older, though, they start to slow down and might not be able to handle big days out on the town. That’s why Dog Quality created the Dogger Buggy: a stroller for your pup so you never have to leave home with her.

When an older dog has a seizure, it’s scary, especially if they don’t have a history of them. I know from experience with my own senior dogs. However, it may give you peace of mind to know that dog seizures aren’t painful for your pooch. Of course, your dog might feel a sense of panic and confusion but during the actual seizure, they won’t be in pain. Learn the symptoms and what you should do if your dog is having a seizure in our blog.

London is one of the most dog-friendly cities in the world. I love that with so much to see and do, dogs can join in the fun with their humans. However, for senior dogs, mobility problems can put a damper on getting around, which is where our Dogger dog buggy comes in. Not only will it allow your older dog to continue to enjoy the excitement and exercise of walks, it’s extremely versatile. I designed it as an all-terrain, pet jogging buggy so it’s outstanding for smoothly and comfortably navigating any environment. It works equally as well indoors, for casual strolls or to keep small or senior dogs out of harm’s way in crowded environments as it does for hiking and jogging. So, if you plan on exploring a city like London, be sure to bring your Dogger along to help maximize the fun for you and your pooch. Not sure where to start? We've got 7 great dog-friendly spots in London to take your Dogger for a spin...

With Valentine’s Day falling in the middle of February, it has become the month of love. Most of us take the time to show our human friends and family how much we care but what about our senior dogs? How can we give them the TLC they deserve not only on Valentine’s Day but all year round?
