Most drivers will have an annual car insurance policy for their main vehicle and this will suffice for most if not all their driving needs throughout the year.
However, there are various circumstances encountered at times when taking out a separate temporary car insurance policy may be more convenient, save you money and even potentially protect the price of your main policy in years to come.
Many situations arise, such as borrowing a friends people carrier for a day trip, using a van or small lorry to move house or insuring a foreign guest on a vehicle you own, where a one day car insurance policy may be convenient.
Some temporary policies are also flexible in nature and allow you to cover several drivers and vehicles on the one policy, and thus allowing for sharing driving duties on a longer journey with other colleagues, friends or family.
Taking out a separate one day or month car insurance policy may also offer to protect the no-claims discount you may be entitled to on your main annual policy, should you need to make a claim while be covered by your temporary policy. Just like taking out any insurance cover, such as over 50 life insurance, or over 50 home insurance, make sure you consult an independent professional before making any agreement.

The joys of owning a dog are plentiful. However, owning an untrained, out of control dog or puppy, that has not been exposed to any basic dog training exercises, can be a real nightmare, especially for new owners.
Common problems faced by owners of untrained dogs include barking, biting, chewing on clothes or furniture, aggression, separation anxiety, flatulence, leash control, excessive howling and jumping up at people and other dogs.
These are all issues that can in the vast majority of situations be resolved by either hiring a local professional dog trainer or going for group sessions at a local school. However, some dog training experts insist the owner is the often the best person to train their dog, especially for common obedience issues, as the owner is the one who will be enforcing this behavior through commands and rewards throughout the life of the dog. Undertaking this training also builds the bond and relationship between the owner and the dog.
There are many dog training courses, tips, books and guides now available to buy online, and these can also include consultations with the professional behind the course where questions can be asked regarding specific breed issues or training tecniques. Daniel Stevens has written a well-respected self-study course entitled Secrets To Dog Training, and you can check out a Secrets To Dog Training review before you buy to see what exactly is covered.
