I definitely talk about sardines more than your average person. I could even be described as slightly obsessed. It may sound fishy (sorry...) but it’s a fact - sardines are a superfood for your dog. Especially if they usually eat kibble or tinned dog food.
An easy, low cost weekly addition which provides protein, omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin B12, benefits the heart, brain and kidneys, can help with allergies, weight loss and seizures and is believed to enhance mood. And every dog I have ever met loves them.
So it stands to reason they will love you even more than they already do (if that’s possible) if you substitute some of their regular food with a weight appropriate serving of tinned sardines in water with no added salt. For more details and recommended serving information click here.

Welcome to the Happy Dogs Aigle blog! Renovating and setting up our dog boarding and daycare centre has occupied most of my focus and energy over the past 4 years but things are up and running now so it’s time for new projects and challenges. We have some exciting ideas in the pipeline, some longer term, others more immediate – like our monthly newsletter and blog.
My passion is dogs (I’m guessing that’s not a massive surprise). I’m lucky enough to spend pretty much all of my time with them. I never get tired of being with them. Dogs teach me personally a great deal about life, friendship, relaxing, fun, nature and an appreciation for the “little things”.
I also spend a lot of time talking about dogs to “dog people” – owners and professionals. I have learned, and continue to learn, so much about what makes dogs happy and healthy. That’s the main reason behind the blog and newsletter – to share ideas, tips and information to enable us all to have the happiest, healthiest dogs possible. I hope you enjoy the read!
