Your dog may be able to see the ball fine when it is in motion but once it has stopped may not be able to see it as well. Remember these facts when you are interacting with your dog or pointing an object out to him/her.

So your pet is microchipped - but is the chip up to date? Now's the perfect time to check that the contact details assigned to your pet's microchip are accurate.
