Seresto Collars

I would think these might only be available in S Africa for our pets. Prescription needed from your Veterinarian.

I know of one dog who became very agitated at day 2 and when collars as taken of she settled again, so do remember that they could be allergic to them, but otherwise very economical and it lasts for 8 months.

Today, most flea and tick treatments require monthly applications. With such busy personal and professional lives, it’s not surprising that many people find it difficult to remember when re-treatment is required. Seresto® now offers an easy solution to this problem by offering up to 8 months of protection with a single application. It’s a simple way to ensure you’re doing the right thing for your cat or dog, while helping you keep fleas and ticks successfully under control. Collars in available in 2 sizes – Small (Dogs less than 8kg) and Large (Dogs over 8kg).

The Kennel Club of Harare annual championship dog jumping show

The club held its annual Championship Dog Jumping show on 31 May 2014 As usual at this time of the year, the weather was excellent bright sunny weather and still not too cold in the early hours of the morning.

The Judge was from Bloemfontein in South Africa, he judged all the Dog Jumping grades. He used to have German Shepherds some time ago, but now has Border Collies. He gave various lessons in DJ and OB on the Friday before the shows. He believes in teaching his dogs with verbal commands.

I have tried to make some pictures of the competitors, unfortunately not all I could put a name to. So they will be unnamed till some one can send me the details
