If you keep pets, it is important to look after them well. We are introduced to Bob and his dogs at feeding time. The dogs are given meat and biscuits twice a day and wear funny hoods to keep their ears out of the food. Bob explains that his dogs don't like much variation in their diet. Adult dogs can cope with a bit of crunch whereas puppies need softer food.

Could be used to look at animal care. You could show the clip to initiate a discussion about looking after animals. Does someone look after a pet? Maybe let the children draw up a list of basic needs, such as food, sleep, play and physical care. You could present the children with images or statements about good or bad pet care on the IWB and ask them to group them under a smiling or frowning face.
