  1. Poo bags and plastic waste

    I’m out of poo bags so am currently trying to find the least worst thing. Thanks for starting a thread. There’s PVA (poly-vinyl alcohol) but I’m confused about how environmentally-friendly it is? https://www.ohcrap.com.au/official-techie-testing-stuff/ Googling also brought up this: http://store.biobagworld.com.au/environmental-dog-poo-bags Also important: how they actually hold up to the job!
  2. 17 week silky puppy deaf or lazy?

    “Stubborn” = haven’t been taught what is wanted and rewarded for it enough. Did you take Ragamuffin to puppy preschool? She is out of the usual age but there are some senior puppy classes around. An at-home trainer with experience training deaf dogs would also be great - possibly better, actually. Lots of suitable trainers at this link: http://www.rspcasa.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/FF-List-Update-3-Oct-17.pdf

  4. Exercising Reactive Dogs Thread

    I have dived into a bush. No joke. Also ran up the driveway and stood in the garden of someone's house in a fancy suburb. They peered out their window like WTF. I pointed to Malcolm. Pointed to other dog. Waved and went on our way.

  9. Meals for Mutts putting on weight

    I suggest you compare the kcals in the two products. You may be feeding the same quantity but the calories may differ per cup or per kilogram. Otherwise it may be a %PCF thing. My dog is leaner when protein is higher even when overall calories remain the same.
  10. Kidney failure

    You wouldn't remember, Gretel, but I signed up to DOL shortly after our Papillon passed away and you were so very kind and had a piece of the puzzle that helped me locate his breeder. Sadly she too had passed away a month prior, but I will always remember your kindness to me when I was hurting. Malcolm and I send our love back to you at this time when you are hurting.

    Can you record him, Thistle? Not barking doesn't necessarily mean better. There may be other anxiety signs like excessive panting, drooling, pacing, trembling, etc.
