  1. https://petpress.net/14-things-you-didnt-know-about-the-english-setter/
  2. Yes! And in such unexpected places too. Like the cornices or the actual ceiling itself. Mine actually know "I'm clean" means don't come near me. Generally because I am dressed for work or church and would like to arrive there in a reasonable state.
  3. In our house there are three dogs: - Mazda- 11 - ES - Choc - 7 - GSD - the brains of the pack - Veli - 6 - ES Mazda came to us from his breeder aged about 18 months. He had lived on a farm and never been inside a house. For the first two days he wouldn't come inside. Then he walked in and that was it. Somehow he was house trained from the get-go, even though the breeder said he wouldn't be. He is a real couch potato but very food motivated. He has learnt to sit and drop. His only health issues have been food related. (Let's eat anything we find lying around.) Woul
  4. What would you like to know specifically? Like most dogs, your choice of breeder will affect the sort of dog you get. One of mine is a complete couch potato and the other is far more active. (Neither were officially "working lines".) There is some grooming involved. You have to be prepared to deal with that feathering. And the slobber. Again, that varies dog to dog. My couch potato slobbers. Mr Activity - hardly ever. For me, they were a good mid-sized breed. I didn't want another GSD because of all the health problems associated with that breed.
  5. Julie / Steve suggested this site: https://www.australherbs.com.au/
  6. Use to buy slippery elm powder from Steve / Julie's website but that no longer exists. Does anyone know a good place to buy this? (Other than just randomly picking somewhere from Google)
  7. Well my Groodle loving colleague bought a Groodle. (Maybe she was just pretending to consider other dogs to keep me happy.) Now she wants a recommendation for home boarding for two weeks in July, preferably somewhere in the Hills. Personally I'd be putting the dog into a boarding kennel. Home boarding sounds dodgy to me, but hey maybe I'm just getting older and more cynical! (waves at @Loving my Oldies) Would anyone care to recommend a home boarder. They got the puppy at Christmas so she must be about 8 months now.
  8. Weird. Google "dyson vacuum patent expired" and you can get to it just fine that way. The title is "Inventor James Dyson faces challenge to clean up EU vacuum tests"
  9. Yes but if you contact the breeders who are listed on DOL, maybe they can refer to you to someone else.
  10. We once had three German Shepherds at the same time - that's a lot of hair. Now we have one GSD and two English Setters. Still a fair bit of hair. We have two Dysons - a barrel and a stick. The barrel one would have to be 8 or 9 years old. At the time it seemed to be much better than anything else. But now I think things have changed. After all, his patent has expired. (This story is old, but gives some information https://www.ft.com/content/65d41ba2-9a9f-11e5-be4f-0abd1978acaa) I'm not sure what I would buy now, but I would look around before automatically choosing Dy
  11. @mymatejack Yes, I can SO relate to what you are saying. In our suburb there seem to be people that dump their food scraps onto the nature strip. There is also a local KFC, and the amount of chicken bones that get discarded along the foot paths is staggering. My dog once managed to sniff out a packet of sandwiches that some kid had stuffed into a hedge. By the time I realised what was going on, they were consumed cling wrap and all.
  12. Post from Steve on prong collars http://blog.k9pro.com.au/prong-collars-e-collars-why/?fbclid=IwAR2YeOi-xFKV5ad8IkAgFs3KpVgHbbYPWrGudI8g4X5ufs_GtKANge9ZlCE
  13. We have two English setters & there are definitely breeders here in Australia. Last time I looked there were two older Setters advertised here on DOL.
  14. @Malamum Interesting. I have three prongs from Steve - K9.pro. The first one I bought before he had the Sprenger brand. It comes undone in random places. Then I have two Sprengers. One also comes undone. Always at the same place even when I rearrange the links. That does my head in. And the third one is absolutely fine. My three dogs are walked in a prong, a necktech and a flat collar. As Steve always said to me - use the tool that works for you and your dogs. In my case I'm walking dogs with a combined weight of over 100 kgs so I like the extra safety of a prong in case we me
  15. We were with PetPlan until they went stupid and their cover was great. Now we are with bow wow meow through HCF.
