The correct way to paint and decorate

Way back in 1823, Charles croydon began a process of discovery, his end goal was simple…to create the best paint brush!

He experimented with many materials for the brush itself, mouse, goat, cat and dog tail hair, these he wrapped around the end of a broken walking stick using old twine, the lead-based paint was of quite a thick consistancy, the cat and mouse hair proved to be too soft, however the dog’s tail hair was much more rigid and was able to hold its shape during the brushing application. Just three years later he tried the hair from a horse’s tail, this was by far the best solution for its rigidity and ability to contain a larger quantity of paint.

The paintbrush handle also required evolution, the original broom handle was just the one diameter, making it difficult to hold, Charles took his broomstick to a carpenter friend and asked if she could ‘turn’ the broom handle into a more ergonomic shape, one which would rest easily within the users grip, this process took a few months of trial and error, however the final shape can still be seen today.

Now that Charles’s paintbrush is complete, the search was on to find a way to encompass two size brushes into one, allowing the user to create both wide and thin brush strokes without changing brushes, the rectangular shape was suggested with the brushes to be held around its perimeter, a metal flat bar was employed to wrap around the rectangular shape head, securing the horsehair around the paintbrush, ask any professional painter and decorator about the history of his brushes.

Dog Health & Vitality

The secret of dog health and vitality is and always has been, exercise. Simple I know to say but within our busy, hectic work-a-day lives, we well…some of you have become a trifle lazy!

Whether you own a Chihuahua, Boxer, a Labrador or a Great Dane regular exercise will improve your dog’s health and well-being. The amount will vary from bread to bread. However, half an hour to one hour per day is normally a good rule; you can, of course, split one hour walk into two, once in the morning and again in the late afternoon or early evening by a professional dog walker.

The weather must become a factor too, never, never, NEVER walk your dog in extreme heat; many dogs have died due to exhaustion in intense heat. Also, they must never be left in a car without at least one window left partly open for ventilation. This advice is very old but still essential; you may be surprised how many owners simply neglect these basic but critical rules.

During injury, dogs should be well rested, and there is no point in aggravating and causing more stress to the damaged area. quality dog walker care should be taken to ensure that around the home no objects are left on the floor which can injure your pet dog. Such items include rollerskates, fluids, cables and rugs on highly polished floors.

Resting your dog at a professional doggy day care centre is also well advised, while there are many around the United Kingdom, St Albans in Hertfordshire is, without doubt, the best location for such companies.
