  1. I agree, i would like to see a picture of the dog. So tired of losers loving this breed to compensate for thier small..ahem.. you know whats!
  2. My old dog Sage used to do this sort of thing... in the end the problem was resolved with 24/7 access in and outside. But in saying this,she wasnt a problem barker I wish u all the best in resolving the issue
  3. that was sweet... hits the nail on the head!
  4. he IS lovely!! Shame to see such talent go to waste! Hope he finds a nice home
  5. Comes as no surprise .. they are a wonderful breed!!! thanks for the post!!
  6. I feel very sad for you.. It must be so difficult. I would be very interested if the DOL trainers would post some replies here. Ive not heard of a dog at 7 falling so backwards. Have you had him seen by a vet to check for any illness thats may be causing him such stress?
  7. Dont give up... Before i had DOL i never crate trained.. Now i would never do anything BUT. This is how i did it. i had lots of pigs ears etc, and each time they went to the crate, i put the ear in. Gave a few mins of chew time. Before the pup asks to come out i take her out and remove the ear or treat. the ONLY time a treat is given is inside the crate with closed door. My dogs now go to bed in the crate on thier own. Some dogs are easier than others and be prepared to have some sleepless nights just as you would with a baby. Good luck
  8. how can culling most of them based on basic issues like pulling on a lead benefit a breed. Base it on the usual standards and yea for sure,i agree... Im not naive,., ive been in rescue not long but long enough to know the harsh realities of it. Not all dogs should be saved. But NO ONE can tell me a dog who doesnt SIT on cue,should be PTS...no matter the breed
  9. I think that was kind of the point of the original post.. why seperate the pits.
  10. I was thinkin theres no BSL laws restricting greys lmao... Nice one Kobes
  11. I am finding more people on DOL are almost backing BSL.. A few names spring to mind. How anyone can think it will ever work is beyond me. I asked around quite a bit in how I could help etc but no one had any ideas and to be honest I had no idea where to start.
  12. He is already trained with SOME hand signals. When meeting him,you would not know it. Apart from when recalling. Although ,once you do get his attention with waving arms,he does come. My main concerns were diversions. For instance in the early days of him being here,If he and my dogs rough play etc,I want to be able to get his attention from a distance,which is why I was considering vibrating collars. Eta thankyou to everyone for your advice
  13. where do you get these collars. Does anyone know the price? Erny did suggest this too. I will certainly look into it.. i just dont know where lol
  14. Its possible that I will be taking in a deaf dog. I was wondering what experience others have had with deafness. I am more concerned with diversions etc. I have always been a verbal leader with my dogs,but wonder,for example,if there was a scuffle,what you would do to distract the dog? I have been given some good advice,but would love to hear from families of deaf dogs who deal with it regularly
  15. I too have loved the breed for many many years, but dont think I could deal with the issues,... and i have staffies lol!
  16. Thanks Kate,and im sorry to hear of your loss also. I have an album of Sage from 6 weeks old until her final day. My daughter works in a photo lab so we are going to put them all onto disc to background music etc. Its still so hard..I had a good cry again yesterday when i discovered Sages brother who had had a stroke earlier in the week,drowned in his families swimming pool. RIP Bazza, you can now play with Sage under the trees and scuffle like the old days.. Careful Baz,Sage always outdid you!
  17. Theres one...and if u look through you will see lots like this. My dogs do it quite often,perhaps not with as much vigour as the one in this clip
  18. Thanks everyone.. i keep having moments.. Im sure i will for a while to come!
  19. Sages last day with us...my kids are in these pics with her
  20. I think im bein gparanoid... I just lost my dog to kidney disease so im a bit on edge. She seems ok in every way,yes very active... poop all good etc.. So i shouldnt panic PP?.. Ok.. NO TESTS! Maybe i need to join the pug thread,even though she is a mutt as such.. You can all give me Pug advice.. Thanks for all the replies
  21. My vets going to love me.. i only just spent over $700 in the last week.. Off for more blood tests I think.. put my mind at rest,..and the vets kids through Uni
  22. http://www.dolforums.com.au/index.php?act=...t&id=171404 council has him as an APBT... who here agrees?
  23. I assumed the issue was that the people owned a supposed APBT,and it wasnt reported by the neighbours PRIOR to any incident. Again,soo many people change thier breed to suit themselves.. For instance,a friend of mine bought a pup, lab x maltese. This dog was picked up by council after getting out while she had tradesmen on the property.The council holding facility labelled the dog a Lab x Kelpie while in his pen.. my friend decided that kelpie is a far better cross to be in there than a maltese,so she now tells everyone this is what her dog was crossed with.. she stated to me that the council would know better and he must be crossed with that.. Pays no mind to the fact he was sold to her has Lab x Maltese purley cause maltese isnt as "cool". (no offence malt owners lol) ETA: he is a really cute dog..looks like a mini lab
