      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Brillant item to have for those winter months!

      I have always loved animals, well as long as I can remember anyway. My one particular love is horses, ever since that donkey beach ride.

      Horses are definitely not a cheap hobby, whether you have your own or not. I guess people who own, work with or just ride horses have to forget about the money and the amount of time they take up and think about how much enjoyment horses give you. I have ridden since I was little and was lucky enough to own my own pony when I was younger. At the moment I just work with horses, hoping one day to have my own again.

      One piece of equipment that I would be lost without is the "Rambo Cotton Lined Chaps". These chaps can be my life saver in winter, when you're so cold you want to cry. Horses never stop being needed to be taken care of; in all weathers they still need feeding, exercising, cleaning and general rubbish jobs. In the very cold months of winter I find these are a must and keep my legs nice and warm.

      The chaps are waterproof and breathable. The chaps fasten around your waist by a clip with a strap which is adjustable to different sizes. The chaps fasten to your leg by a zip that goes all the way to the bottom, with a velcro flap that covers over the zip to stop it from getting caught. The chaps are made out cotton and are fully waterproof.

      The chaps can be used for all sorts of jobs. I quite often find myself walking my dog in them if it's really cold and I am going out in fields with him. You can also ride in the chaps; they are bottomless so your bottom has full contact with your saddle. They are great for hosing down your horse as they are waterproof so you don't have to freeze or go for a change of clothes.

      The chaps are available in adults and children's sizes. The children's are available in S (7-9yrs), M (10-12yrs), and L (13-14yrs). The adults are available in S, M, L, XL, and XXL.

      Adult sizing guide:

      Size Thigh Inside Leg
      S 24" 30"
      M 25" 31"
      L 26.5" 32"
      XL 28 33"
      XXL 29.5" 35"

      Being on the slight small size of 5ft 2 I managed to get away with buying the children's large size. If you are small I would advise going to a shop and trying them on if you can, it may save you a couple of pounds. I found that the child's size fitted me perfectly and don't drag along the floor and tear.

      I purchased my pair from a Ride-Away Store a couple of years ago for a price of about £20. Currently on the Ride-Away website they are available at £31.66 for the adult size and £24.99 for the children's size. You can also purchase them on eBay for a similar price.

      I have had my chaps for about 4 years now and when the weather turns cold they come out. They are still in great condition; I have had no problems with the zips of the clip fastener around the waist.
      As for cleaning the chaps, depending on how mucky they are, I often hose wet mud off outside and then put them in the washing machine.

      If I had to pick one fault with the chaps it would be that you can sometimes get a cold bum, but what do you expect if you buy bottomless chaps. I have used other waterproof full chaps before and find that once that you get going and get doing something you get too hot and have to take them off. With these chaps your legs can breath and I find that they keep me warm enough but not too warm. They are not only great at keeping the rain off your legs, also they are great at keeping a nasty bitter wind off your legs when you're stuck in the middle of field with a horse playing catch.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great product to have when travelling

        It's now a legal requirement for you to wear a seat belt when driving or being a passenger, if there is one available in the vehicle. You can be fined up to a maximum of £500 if you are caught not wearing one, unless you are exempt for medical reasons. The driver is responsible for anyone under the age of 14 years and they will be fined personally if the child fails to comply with the law. There are a variety of different requirements for children and different restraints that need to be used. You wouldn't transport your newborn on somebody's knee so why when travelling do so many people travel with their dogs on their knees or loose in the car?

        A dog car harness is a brilliant device that ensures that your dog travels a safe and comfortable journey.
        In a crash, having your dog properly restrained could prevent serious injury, not only to your pet but also yourself and any other persons in the car.

        ***Example***

        Travelling at 30mph with a medium sized dog (23kg) could be thrown forward in an accident with a force equivalent to nine 12 stone men, causing alot of damage to itself and other people.

        Recently my partner and I got a puppy, he is about 6 months old now, and he is a very energetic dog and doesn't like to sit still for very long at all. I made the mistake of once travelling 5 minutes down the road with him loose in the car, as my partner was at work and I needed to take him to the vets for his second injections. I have to say it was very dangerous and not a thing that I would ever do again, he just wanted to sit with me and it's not very practical when driving.

        We were travelling back up north for Christmas, about a 5 hour journey, and decided to take Benji with us. So I searched the internet for how to travelling a puppy on a long journey. The two most used products were a cage or a car harness and seen as though we don't have much room for a spacious cage for him I decided to opt for the car harness.

        I purchased an "Ancol Car Harness" from my local pet shop for £12.99. However I did find it on the internet at a cheaper price of £9.81.

        The harness is fully adjustable with extra padding for comfort and support down the middle of the harness. The harness is made out of soft nylon to ensure that it doesn't rub on your pet and additional swivel to avoid tangling. The harness is secured onto your dog by two clippers, there is a strap that loops through their leg and round their neck and another strap that goes under their tummy and fastens round the side. Attached to the harness is a loop of material with a "D" ring on the end, you pass the seat belt through the material and simple fasten the seat belt. The "D" ring is used to clip your lead onto, so it can be used as a walking device as well.

        The car harness comes in a plastic packaging. On the front of the packaging is a dog wearing the harness in the car and on the reverse of the packing is a diagram and instructions of how the dog should wear the harness. I found these instructions very useful as I got a little confused were his legs should go at first.
        The car harness is available in sizes: small, medium, large and ex large. All have adjustable straps to find the right fitting for your dog.

        The harness has room for your dog to move around and get comfortable in a position that he/she is happy with. Our experience of using the car harness for the first time was great, the harness enabled him to lay down comfy enough and sleep all the way. This enabled us to concentrate on where we were going and drive without having to worry about where the dog was.

        We now use this all the time when we travel with him in the car. I would definitely recommend one if you are having trouble travelling your dog or just get one to be that little bit extra safe.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Great product!

          Personally I love Christmas, I love the build up, shopping, eating lots of food and the actual day itself. I am the second of four so even as I got older I still had a younger brother and sister that got lots of toys for Christmas, which I could play with. Sadly as we all got older we received greater and more expensive gifts, which we were all very grateful of. Also as you all get older in the family the magical and innocent experience of Father Christmas disappears and Christmas Eve feeling like the longest day ever! I loved going to bed on Christmas Eve and looking out of my window determined to stay awake so I could see Father Christmas, I will always remember the person who told me Father Christmas wasn't real. As I am such a big kid at heart it is lovely to have my two nephews to share Father Christmas with all over again. My oldest nephew is 3 years old, so this year he started to understand all about Father Christmas and was very excited about him coming down his chimney!

          One of many toys that my nephew received was the "Play Doh Magic Swirl Ice Cream Shop". With him already having some pots of Play Doh and him loving making things, I thought this would be the ideal present for him.


          ***Contents***

           Four times 320g pots of play doh in different colours
           40 moulds
           Ice cream swirl unit base
           Sprinkler topper maker
           2 dishes
           2 cones
           2 scooper spoons
           Cake presser

          The Ice Cream Shop comes unassembled in an attractive box. The box is a bright yellow and turquoise colour with a picture of the shop set up on the front showing how it works. Inside the box are the different pieces; the base, main ice cream swirl unit, sprinkler and an additional swirl unit. The 3 units have to be clicked into place on the base, which is simple and easy to set up and do. The base is white and has lots of different shapes made into it so different moulds can be made. The main swirl unit is white with a red handle. The other two units are blue, the sprinkler has a yellow top with a red rotating handle and the swirl unit has a green stopper.

          To make Ice Cream using the main swirl unit you open up the red handle and place play-doh inside stuffing as much in as possible. Were the doh comes out place a pot or a cone, on the rotating stand. Then you firmly push down the red handle and out will come the doh looking like ice cream swirls, also the stand will rotate the pot or cone so it ends up looking like a real ice cream. To use the other swirl unit you just simple place play doh inside and then push the green stopper down forcing it out the end. To make the sprinkles you place play doh inside and then fasten the rotating stopper on the top and then turn it round and round and out come sprinkles.

          I have tried this game out myself with my nephew; well I used him as an excuse for playing with it. On Christmas day we both sat at the table and set it all up and played with it for a good hour. However this is when I saw the problems that occur with this product. The product is recommended for ages 3 plus, parts of the product are quite hard to use physically and my nephew was unable to do some of the things. He was unable to push down the red handle himself to create the ice cream, you have to be quite forceful and in fact I found it hard to do myself. Also the other unit to make the swirling ice cream is very hard to push down and again he was unable to do this.

          However there was one part of it that he loved doing, that was making the sprinkles. He loved turning the handle round and round and seeing the sprinkles come out the end into the pot.

          This toy is very messy and bits of play doh get everywhere but what do you expect with play doh if you aren't prepared to deal with the mess then don't buy play doh for your children.

          Overall I think this is a brilliant product; however I wouldn't recommend it for a 3 year old unless you are prepared to do the majority of the work yourself. My nephew tended to get mad that he was unable to do some of the things but you don't just have to make ice creams you can make loads of different things. I would say it was a well bought present and I loved spending time with my nephew playing with this product.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Excellent buy

            As I have mentioned before I have just recently moved into my own place. Moving just short of 300 miles is a long way to make more than one trip with our stuff so we decided that we would buy all our house stuff when we got there. Within a couple of days I was fed up of unwashed clothes laying around so I went out to look for a laundry basket.

            I made a trip to Argos, lucky for me it's only 5 minute drive away. Who knew there were so many options just for a laundry basket? I finally made a decision and bought the "Folding Double Canvas Laundry Basket". This came at a price of £16.99.

            ***Appearance***

            The structure of the laundry basket is metal; the metal is chrome so this means it is new and shiny looking. On each of the four legs of the basket are black rubber stoppers. These are in place to stop the basket from sliding around if you were to have it on a hard surface and not carpet. The basket itself stands at 77 cm high with a width of 66 cm and a depth of 35 cm. The stand is simple and modern looking.

            The basket consists of two off white canvas bags. The bags are attached by velcro to the stand by chrome handles that are removable off the stand just by lifting them. On the front of the canvas bags, printed in black bold writing, are the words "lights" and "darks". The capacity of the laundry basket is 40 litres. I find this to be a reasonable size, with just two of us living in the house I usually wait for my washing to pile up before I start loading it into the washing machine, I can leave my washing for a while before it starts to overflow.

            ***Packaging***

            The laundry basket comes flat packed in a cardboard box with its individual bits and instructions. I have to say building things is not one of my strong points, unless it's Lego. The box contains lots of different poles of different lengths and instructions giving numbers of which pole should be joined to which. This confused me greatly, lucky for me my sister and her partner happened to be visiting at the time and he managed putting it up no problem.

            This design of laundry basket I find very useful. The bags are removable from the stand so instead of having to carry handfuls of washing or drag the whole laundry basket to the washing machine you can just remove the bag and take that to the washing machine. I find this extremely useful as it doesn't give my puppy a chance to steal any loose socks that I may have dropped, which would never be seen again. The canvas bags are also detachable from the chrome handles which enables the bags to be washed so your laundry basket doesn't smell out your room.

            Overall I don't think I could have picked a better basket. The two bags enable lights and darks to be split which saves time. The basket is a reasonable size not too big but big enough to fit a large amount of clothes in.

              Disadvantages

              Wouldn't recommend

              Moving to your own place often means that when you get to your new home you have nothing. This was the case when my partner and I moved to our flat. Having both previously lived with our parents neither of us had anything to bring with us domestic wise. We decided a trip to IKEA was in order to try and pick up a few bargains, moving into your own place is expensive! Knives are essential in the kitchen even if you aren't particularly a keen cook.

              Coming to the end of the shopping spree and rapidly running out of money we purchased a block with four knives at £2.59 I thought they would do for a short while till we could get a more expensive set.

              ***Appearance***

              The block of four knives stand securely in a solid light pine block. The knives stand in the block by four slots at the top of the block making the knives secure. The block is coated in a clear lacquer which enables the block to be wiped down with a damp cloth. To enable it to stand safely on the worktop the block comes with a small stainless steel stand that is connected to the block. The block is relatively small, lean and modern looking. The Length of the block is: 11cm, Width: 10cm, Height: 33cm a great size for a small kitchen with limited storage. The appearance of the block is simple but looks clean and is most importantly safe.
              The four knives all have a black plastic handles, which are relatively strong and sturdy. The blades are made out of stainless steel with a nice shiny look to them, making them look more appealing. The block contains four knives: a bread knife, utility knife and two cook's knives. The bread knife is 18cm (total length 33cm with handle), utility knife 10cm (total length 24cm), cook's knife 13cm (total length 28cm) and another cook's knife 19cm (total length 34cm). On the blade of the knife at the top near the handle, IKEA made in China from stainless steel, is written in black writing.

              ***Packaging***

              At a price of £2.59 you can't expect much packaging. The block comes wrapped in plastic with each individual knife wrapped in plastic placed in its slot.

              At a price of £2.59 you get exactly what you pay for. The appearance of the block is simple but modern looking and they look really nice. However, unless you just want a block of knives that looks good on your worktop I would not recommend this block of knives. The knives are very blunt and you struggle to cut anything hard without having a problem. Also the blade of the knife is very wide, especially on the small knife, so you are unable to do any peeling with the knives.

              Sadly this wasn't the bargain that we were hoping for and we will purchase a more expensive block of knives in the future. I wouldn't recommend these knives unless you just want a block of knives to look at.

                Great speaker dock for a very reasonable price!

                A couple of years ago for Christmas my sister and her partner bought me some iPod docks. I had been wanting some for a while and intended to purchase some myself but thought I would wait till after Christmas. The docks that I received were the Gear4 House party 3 iPod speaker dock.

                ***Appearance***

                The look and the style of the dock is modern and sleek. The colour of the dock is simple but contrasts nicely using the traditional black and white look. The back of the dock is a white plastic with the speaker being black at the front. The speaker only consists of three buttons and they are placed on the top of the dock for turning on/off and adjusting the volume. The on/off button will light up blue when the iPod is playing. A digital red display appears when choosing what setting you would like the dock on, whether its iPod, aux or the radio frequency, also the volume number is displayed when adjusting the volume. A retractable iPod dock is built into the speaker; this is in the middle of the speaker and the front. A device pops out which enables you to connect your iPod to the speaker in a stand up position. The speaker is really light and small so it is easily moved about your home and small enough to put away if you didn't want it out on display.

                ***Features***

                The dock is not just useful for playing music from your iPod it has other useful features. It has a built in FM radio with auto-scan function. It has a 30W total speaker output; the speaker allows you to play your music loud but doesn't distort the music itself which some speakers can do. The dock can charge your iPod whilst you play your music, however I found that this did not work for my iPod. I have an iPod touch and it wouldn't allow the iPod to charge stating that this device was not accessible. I found that this wasn't just my dock or iPod and that the older models would charge whilst playing. It is compatible with any dock-connecting iPod and other portable music players. It comes with a fully functional remote that control both the speaker and the iPod. The remote is used to choose the setting, change of song, volume, radio station. The remote has 16 different functions in total. A problem with the remote is the distance in which you can work the remote from the dock. To use the remote you have to be right in front of the speaker which I think defeats the object of have a remote. The docking station has a USB connection which can be used for transferring data so you can plug it into your computer and transfer music to your iPod through the dock.

                ***Bargain***

                The Gear4 Houseparty 3 speaker dock can be purchased from Amazon at a price of £29.99. Compared to other docking stations this is a brilliant price for the quality of the product. My partner used to own a Bose docking station and the difference in price was about £200, however I didn't find anything considerable better compared to the Gear4 Houseparty speak dock for the massive difference in price.
                The docking station was definitely a great Christmas present, I have had the speaker dock coming up two years this Christmas and it is still in perfect condition and working order. I would highly recommend this docking station if you are looking for something not expensive but great quality for the price.

                  Disadvantages

                  Highly recommend would be lost without mine

                  ****Just a Name?* **
                  The Hunter Wellington Boots have been in production over the last 150 years and are still a fashionable brand that is used today. The Hunter wellie is often known as the "posh" wellie and a variety of different people use the wellie for different reasons.

                  The Hunter Wellington goes back further than WW1 but WW1 was when the production of the Wellington boot was boosted. The company was asked by the War Office to produce a boot that would be suitable in the trenches and the company supplied the British Army with the boots. They were then asked to supply again for WW2. The most famous welly is the "original Green wellington" which was made over 50 years ago. It was the first orthopedic boot that was made and was launched alongside the "Royal Hunter". They continued to supply wellies to the Royal household and were awarded with two Royal Warrant's. The first was from HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and the second from HM The Queen.

                  I have worked and been around horse's alot of my life and when you are mucking out and trekking up and down muddy fields you need something comfortable on your feet, especially if you are on your feet for more than eight hours a day. Before purchasing my Hunter's I went through alot of cheap wellies. They seemed like a good idea at the time but I more than likely ended up spending more money in the long run as it wouldn't take them long to split or for holes to develop in the soles. Eventually I decided to purchase some Original Hunter Wellington Boots, two and half years later I still have the same pair and they are still going strong. I use my wellies on a daily basis whether it is walking the dog or going to work.

                  ***Designing***

                  The original Hunter wellie is designed so that they are shaped to your leg and foot making it comfy and better than regular cheap wellies. The boot is designed so that it is light on your foot but durable so that they last longer than a normal wellie. The wellie comes designed with a buckle on the top outside of the wellie; this buckle is extremely useful and helps to shape the wellie even more to your calf by making it slacker or tighter. For the inside they are lined with a quick dry knitted nylon lining. The boots come in a variety of different colours and you can choose a colour to suit you and the purpose you will use your wellie for. The colour that I went for was navy but the different colours range from: aubergine, black, chocolate, dark olive, fuchsia, iris, red.

                  For your wellies you can purchase "Welly Socks" which go inside your welly and are designed to keep your feet warmer on those very cold winter days. Depending on how long you are planning on spending in your wellies on a daily basis depends on how cold your feet may get on those really cold days. I find that when you are spending more than eight hours in your wellies that your feet can get really cold when it comes to winter times. I have alot of friends that use the "Welly Socks" and say that they are really good at keeping your feet that extra bit warmer. However I am yet to purchase this item, this is just purely down not getting round to it. To keep my feet warm on those really cold days I put my feet inside plastic bags and then my feet inside my wellies. I saw someone on my yard doing this once and wondered what they were doing and said that it would never work to keep your feet warm and two years later I am still doing it myself. Might sound silly but sometimes you will do anything to keep your feet warm.

                  ***Price***

                  The slight problem with these amazing wellies is the price. The price ranges from about £55 - £70 depending on where you get them from. Welly Socks can also be purchased from £16 from the Hunter online store. However don't be misled by the cost, if you are a person who uses wellies on a regular basis and find yourself going through cheap wellies quickly, then save yourself some money in the long run and treat yourself to a pair of Hunter Wellies.

                    Would recommend for a family or someone who isn't too into gaming

                    The Toy Story 3 Xbox 360 is a game which represents the movie, Toy Story 3. Which is a fantastic movie and I would highly recommend that you should watch it. I am not a gamer myself so therefore this review is not portrayed in a gamer's view but a person who might occasionally like to play on a game for fun.
                    The Xbox belongs to my partner who likes to spend hours on the console completing various different games. When we bought the Xbox we got the Toy Story 3 game with it and having seen the movie I thought I would give it a try. With just moving down to the other end of the country and having no TV channels, internet or a job I had plenty of spare time on my hands and took to playing this game.

                    Toy Story 3 is split into two game modes. The first game mode is story mode, this mode is set up on a series of levels based or stimulated by sections of the film. The story mode has eight levels within each level you meet and greet the toys inspired by Toy Story 3. Within the Story mode you play as one of the three favourite Toy Story characters. The levels don't rigidly follow the narrative of the story and incorporate a variety of different things to make the level more interesting and challenging. The level in particular that I like is the level which takes place inside Bonnie's house. At the beginning of the level you have to work your way through various obstacles that are trapping you inside the house the aim is to get out of the house. However it is not made easy and is not just a leisurely walk through the house you are on a timescale which is set up by the house flooding with coffee and a having to escape from Dolly the "evil" witch. After escaping from the house, by jumping out of the window, you land in a space location. In this part of the level you must grind along rails and return batteries back to the main station. You have to jump from rail to rail and dodge various objects that may get in your way. Most of the levels are based around platforming but there is a level where you are Buzz Lightyear as though the toys are playing a videogame and you get to use the features of Buzz, in particular his laser, and fly to Zurg. Throughout the levels you can collect collectable items which are hidden in a range of different places making the task slightly more difficult.

                    Within the levels you get to use three favourite Toy Story characters. Each character has different and unique abilities to them. You can swap control between the characters at anytime and use their unique abilities to your advantage to help you complete the task. You can also perform cooperative moves between the characters that give you enhanced actions; these actions are boosts or launches. However cooperating characters together is not used very often during the game but is very useful when you are able to do so. The three characters are Woody, Buzz and Jessie:

                    Woody- This character allows you to use your lasso drawstring to reach places that other characters are unable to do.

                    Buzz - This character is stronger than the rest and when you are able to use characters together Buzz comes in handy for launching other characters to places that they cannot reach. Buzz also comes with a jetpack and laser beam.

                    Jessie- This character has a jump with super balancing power to get to the toughest spots.

                    I really enjoyed playing this game mode and completing the various different levels. When my family came to visit we found ourselves sitting and playing this game as it is an uncomplicated game and most of all fun. The only problem that I found with the story mode is that if you were half way through a level you were unable to save it and had to go back to the beginning again if you were to turn off the game.

                    The other game mode of the Toy Story 3 game is Toy Box Mode. Toy Box Mode is very different to the Story Mode, you are placed in an environment and are free to explore and do whatever you wish. In this mode you can complete missions, buy new toys and customise a variety of different things.

                    Missions - You will find different kinds of missions plotted all around the world. By completing missions you'll earn various rewards including gold and new customisations.

                    New Toys - You can add your own unique personality to the world. As you complete missions and earn gold you can buy new toys.

                    Customisation - You can customise your play in different ways. You can customise the buildings by adding different ones, changing how the building looks, adding things to the building. You can also customise Townspeople by changing the look of them this can be done by changing their hairstyles and outfits.

                    This mode can be played as two player and you can work together to complete tasks. By making the game into two players in means that the screen is split into two horizontally.

                    As I expressed earlier I am not a dedicated gamer but I like to play on adventurous games from time to time. I really enjoyed playing this game, not only just alone but i also enjoyed playing it as a two player game. I found the levels of the Story Mode intriguing and well planned out not knowing what was coming next. I would recommend this game for a family or someone like myself who likes to have a go on a games console from time to time but doesn't like the high tech games.

                    You can purchase this game from all the game stores and it is also available on Amazon for £29.99.

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      Great puppy sized tasty treat with a healthy kick.

                      *What are Bonio Puppy Milk Biscuits*
                      Puppy Bonio Milk biscuits are a special formulated biscuit for your growing puppy. They have the goodness of milk and are traditionally oven baked. Whilst being a scrummy tasty treat the treats are designed to help your puppy by keeping good care of their teeth. The Bonio treat helps to gently clean their teeth by cleaning away plaque and tartar that can build up.

                      My partner and I have just recently got a puppy ourselves and with not ever having a puppy before we were spoilt for choice at the amount of different treats that you can buy for your puppy. We went down to our local supermarket and even at a supermarket there is plenty of choice for puppy treats. The puppy Bonio biscuits stood out to me most, being in a bright red box with a dog on the front with a slogan "Keeps teeny tails wagging". Not only do they look appealing with their advertisement but my picking up the box i learnt that they are very healthy treats for my puppy.

                      If you are looking for a treat that isn't expensive and that is going to last your puppy a while these Bonio biscuits are defiantly worth a try. The Bonio treats are very easy to get hold of and are available in a variety of different stores. You will find that in most places the biscuits come in a 350g small box, which is ideal if you don't have much room. You can purchase them at most larger supermarkets at just a £1 a box. They are also available at Pets at Home at £0.99 for a 350g box.

                      I purchased our 350g box from my local supermarket, Morrison's, for £1.

                      The Bonio Puppy Milk Biscuits are biscuits made with milk and as the name suggests they are obviously designed to be suitable for younger dogs. The box suggests that they are suitable from your puppy being 16 weeks to a 1 year old. They help provide an ideal treat for early training sessions and also takes them a while to chew so they keep them occupied for a short while.

                      Until i got home with the box I didn't realise that the biscuits were recommended for puppies from 16 weeks onwards. With my puppy only been 10 weeks I was really disappointed that I would be unable to use the treats for another 6 weeks. Ignoring the recommendation I broke the biscuit up slightly and gave it my puppy who devoured the biscuit in no time and had no problems chewing it. However all puppies are different and some may have problems chewing the biscuit. I would recommend that you make your own judgement on what your own puppy is like if you want to use the biscuits earlier than the box recommends.

                      The biscuits are relatively small, the perfect size for a puppies mouth and are made with fresh milk. The fresh milk provides calcium which is very important in your puppy's diet. Calcium is required to help develop strong healthy bones and teeth and also a wide selection of various vitamins and minerals to help with the overall development of internal and external features within your puppy. It is important that your puppy has all the correct ingredients in their diet to develop in the way they need to. A puppy grows very quickly in the early stages of their life and it is important that the correct nutrients are provided. A puppy should double its birth weight by a week old then followed by a consistent 5%-10% daily increase.

                      A dog reaches its full height before it reaches its full weight. This example suggest that at 4 months old (16 weeks) the majority of dogs will have only reached about 30% of their adult weight but will have already have reached 60% of the adult height. Bonio Puppy Milk Biscuits are great as the packaging provides a daily feeding guideline on the expected bodyweight of your puppy. The Bonio's give you a number of biscuits that you should give your puppy per day and substitute these for its feed. Fresh drinking water should always be available to your puppy.

                      I bought the biscuits about 2 weeks ago and I still have half a box left so they last a long time. I use them to praise my puppy and take some out on a walk with me so when he is good he can have a tasty treat along the way.

                      Overall I think the Bonio Puppy Milk Biscuit are great and would strongly recommend them to anyone who is trying to decide on a treat for your puppy. They are a great treat but are also healthy and helpful to your puppy.
