Celebrations any time of year can be fun, safe and stress-free when you include your dog. Just teach your dog a few basic commands and follow these helpful tips.

Preparing pets for a party

If you’re throwing a holiday bash this year, help keep your dog safe and happy by remembering to:

  • Keep your dog on a leash or in a crate while everyone arrives so they don’t accidentally get out the door
  • Establish a don’t feed the dog rule with your guests
  • Find a private room or crate to keep your pet in while you are entertaining if they get nervous around crowds and noise
  • Practice some pre-training if your pet likes to bark when the doorbell rings

Helpful commands to teach pets

There are three important command basics to ensure a well-behaved pet.

Sit (so they won’t jump on guests):

Grab a treat and place it right at the dog’s nose to get their attention. Keeping the treat right on the end of the dog’s nose, slowly move it up and back over their head. As they follow the treat, their head should come up and they should sit. Once they’re sitting, say “good dog” and give them the treat. When you have practiced enough that you are sure they will sit, you can begin to say the word “sit” right before you put the treat at their nose.

Stay (so they don’t run out the door):

Ask your dog to sit and praise them when they obey. While your dog is sitting, say “stay” and place your hand flat with your palm facing the dog. Wait 2-3 seconds and then give your dog a treat. You can increase the time they stay by a couple of seconds every three repetitions. It’s best to remain right beside them until you’ve worked up to 30 seconds.

Leave it (to avoid eating candy):

You’ll need a large dog biscuit and some small treats. Put your dog on a leash and place the large biscuit out of reach of the dog. Allow them to attempt to get it, but do not allow them to actually put it in their mouth. When they stop trying to get it and turn away, say “good dog” and give them a small treat. As they get better at this exercise, say “leave it” when they start to go toward the biscuit.

The 12 Biggest Spring/Summer Fashion 2021 Trends

You could be forgiven for thinking that the spring/summer 2021 collections – and the subsequent raft of spring/summer 2021 trends – were something of a damp squib. Certainly, thanks to the ongoing pandemic, it was a season like no other.

You could be forgiven for thinking that the spring/summer 2021 collections – and the subsequent raft of spring/summer 2021 trends – were something of a damp squib. Certainly, thanks to the ongoing pandemic, it was a season like no other.

Of the four fashion capitals, New York and London opted for predominantly digital showcases, with the odd designer hosting Covid-secure presentations for small numbers of press and buyers; while Milan and Paris held scaled-back showings with strict social distancing measures in place from some of its biggest brands. Others still opted to try something different. “Different” manifested variously as: showing off-schedule, showing via film and in virtual reality, or sending a replacement for a catwalk experience out to press and buyers in a box. All enjoyed varying degrees of success.

As for the biggest spring/summer 2021 trends? The new working-from-home routine certainly had an effect on what designers turned out. How else to explain the mood for bralettes and midriff flossing? (Beware: both trends require either a fairly militant home workout regime, and/or buoyant levels of self-confidence.) Away from the underwear-as-outerwear impulse came comfort: wide-leg trousers made for bold strides; floaty, sheer maxi dresses promised easy glamour; and ladylike ensembles pimped with a touch of sportswear felt suitably modern (think prim pleated skirts with hoodies, as seen at Prada, tea dresses with cagoules, as seen at Celine, and pencil skirts with bomber jackets, as seen at Max Mara).

Then, there was a renewed sense of resourcefulness: plenty of designers opted for upcycling by way of deadstock fabrics and crafty patchworks to hold a mirror up to 2020 society, questioning its consumerist ways. And for those seeking a more straightforward approach to fashion, there was black and white. Most often, together.

“There will always be sequins…”

If you are one of millions seeking a guaranteed mood-booster? There will always be sequins – and designers were determined to outfit locked down customers in looks that will make a living room disco feel lively. Yes, you’re over video conferencing and voice notes. You want to go outside in those frivolous woven Bottega Veneta dresses, swinging those delectable chain-strung micro pouches from the Chanel catwalk and trotting down the street in those fabulous Miu Miu beaded mules. The time will come when you can wear a dramatic gown with cape-detailing and not feel like an extra in a Zoom-based, am-dram production. But for now, there are jolly stripes, clever cut-outs and sexy corseting to keep you amused. Time to play dress up with the spring/summer 2021 fashion trends. You’ve got the time.
