Fit as a butchers dog!

Good day fellow cat herders! Dicky here!

Today I had to explain to my human that it was perfectly acceptable and quite normal for me to want another walk, nay another two walks per day!  My reasoning behind this?  I'm a dog- it's what I do, I'm a roamer... ever watch the littlest hobo? Ah now there's a fellow with the right idea - all he does is walk...and eat of course...  BUT, could I get my human out in the open air twice in one day?  I think I'd have more chance of actually catching my tail.

So how much exercise is right for you? Well for some it's a great deal, and for others it's really not a lot at all. It's pretty breed specific.  With that in mind when I met my dear friend Amber she was, shall we say... slightly on the podgy side... you could actually balance your water bowl on her back, which for a King Charles Cavalier was quite something, and she hated walking, and who could blame her having to haul all that around!

Well she came to stay at Dickybag HQ for quite some time and we got along famously!  I showed her all my favourite Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor haunts, we shared tales (tails) of our regal ancestry and we walked and walked until by the time she left us she was a silf like little thing who you just couldn't keep inside, she just couldn't get enough exercise!

So it goes to show, we are all meant to run, what differs is just how much. Oh and strict mealtimes and laying off those scraps doesn't go amiss either, moment on the lips, lifetime on the hips/haunch and all that!

I came across this video and I have to say I commend this chap on his commitment to fitness!  Do any of you have a more unusual way of staying fit with your human? If so, I'd love to hear about it!

Oh, and when you're out there enjoying your walk don't forget your Dickybag!  It's embarrassing enough having to get your human to pick up after you - let alone having them parading it around in front of everyone in one of those ghastly little sacks!

Smell you later!

Just what I needed!

"Wow! The Dicky Bag is exactly what I needed! The clip saves me carrying the bag in my hand, the seal stops it from smelling, and it looks great!"

"I love my Dicky Bag! It's so much nicer than having to carry a plastic bag around, plus the neoprene design means it doubles as my stubby holder! Awesome!"

Best gift ever!

"I got my Dicky Bag as a Christmas gift and it's one of the best things I've been given! I'll definitely be getting one for my dog-loving friends and re-stocking on Dicky Disks and bags... in fact I'm going to order some now!"

Great for carrying... anything!

Just wanted to say thank you for my Camo style Dicky Bag - as well as being ideal for walking Muttley, it's perfect for carrying extra paintballing ammo!

Just come back from a somewhat windy and sometimes wet holiday in Devon. I asked for the dicky bag to be delivered to the rental property we were staying in. They were there ready and waiting (I purchased two, one for a friend). Read more

Top Rated Product!

I recently purchased a dicky bag (dog poo bag!) online as it seemed the answer to all of my poop scooping problems (no bins on walks, clutching a tesco carrier bag blatantly full of crap - you know how it is! )

Excellent product

We love these messages - even the professionals are using our dog walking bags! Smile

"To the Dicky bag team.  I am a professional dog walker and  have bought products before which you use to carry your dogs No2's in and have given up with them with in a couple of days as they have always been so impractical to use.  I must say I have been using my Dicky bag for 3 weeks now and love it!

I like the idea of carrying spare bags in the top although I take them off the roll before hand and push them in to the slot.  The bag is discreet and so much better than when I had pooh bags swinging from my hip! Read more
It's hard to stop people borrowing it! I won a Dicky bag at alocal dog show, having never heard of the company before I didn't know just how great this product was. We take our bag to every show,walk and journey and it really is brilliant. You wouldn't know what it contained and I honestly couldn't live without our now! My mum and sister are having one each for christmas they are amazed. I keep having to ask for my bag back from my sister who tries stealing it on a regular basis!
Thanks to all at Dicky Bags for making our life easier, less embarrasing and more convient. Dicky bags make being a responsible dog owner stylish and cool!
