  1. I'm going to give you some sympathy as I would be pretty upset if I had waited ages for a puppy and then at the last minute had the breeder change their mind. Especially if I had visited the puppy. I imagine you had names picked out and puppy things purchased. If you say what breed you are looking for perhaps someone can help you with a new puppy.
  2. A good place to start is to visit a dog show and go chat to the Dane people. Most will be happy to talk to you as long as they aren't about to go into the ring. If your state has a Dane club that would also be a good way to find breeders.
  3. Yes the auto fill gives good pressure. I wouldn't bother with a twin tank if you have hot water plumbed in.
  4. How they normally work is like this: one tank is heating the water, you move water from this tank into a 'washing' tank, I normally add shampoo into the washing tank. Wash the dog. Drain the washing tank. Flick over to the heating tank for fresh water for rinsing. So the good thing about a twin tank is you have fresh water heating up whilst you are washing. You could fill the wash tank with the rinsing water by turning the draining bit off so the rinse water isn't draining out. My main angst with the FIdo is that it takes a while to heat up the water. This is ok if you are spending time drying the dogs off.
  5. I think the general consensus is to feed what your dog does best on. If people want info about raw feeding that is provided. If they want info on a kibble that is provided. Then people cam make their own minds up.
  6. I personally class peas as a protein source not as a filler.
  7. Happy Paws treats (advertisers on here) also do a ground up product. It is called Perfect Apperteaser http://www.happypawstreats.com.au/products
  8. That is how I squished Amber's kibble when I wanted to make it into a powder. It is errr good therapy too!
  9. Great photos everyone
  10. I'm sure lots (all) of us have done the dog Xmas photos :laugh: Put them here!
  11. Rule 4: No denigration of pure bred dogs Speaks for itself. This is a primarily a pure bred dog forum (ANKC recognised breeds) and was created to promote and discuss these breeds. If you don't think pure bred dogs make the perfect pets, then maybe this forum is not for you. How does saying that some breeds shed a lot and smell doggy denigrade pure breds?? Because she said they shed/smell less than the purebred parent. Therefore the purebred is smelly and sheds.

  13. This belongs in "Other'. Lovely as the stories are, they have nothing to do with pedigree dogs. Let me make it about pedigree dogs then...... 2 of my border collie girls are super similar. In looks and temperament. Both small, stocky girls with wavy coats. Both would have jumped off a cliff to follow me. They aren't from the same kennel but have dogs in common in their pedigree. Similar lines. All my border collies have been quite similar because I've picked dogs with similar lines. My 2 boys were very similar too. Both big boofy boys who loved everyone. That to me is what makes a good pedigree dog. The lines breeding true so you know what you are getting. I met a puppy I had bred when she was in her twilight years and it was like meeting her mother. Bittersweet.
  14. I would like to know were these ethical breeders of oodles get their breeding stock from to start with.
