  1. Where to buy slippery elm

    Julie / Steve suggested this site: https://www.australherbs.com.au/
  2. 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)
  3. 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.
  4. 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"
  5. Setters

    Yes but if you contact the breeders who are listed on DOL, maybe they can refer to you to someone else.
  6. 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 Dyson. However, their customer service has been awesome.
  7. @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.
  8. Post from Steve on prong collars http://blog.k9pro.com.au/prong-collars-e-collars-why/?fbclid=IwAR2YeOi-xFKV5ad8IkAgFs3KpVgHbbYPWrGudI8g4X5ufs_GtKANge9ZlCE
  9. Setters

    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.
  10. @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 meet say a pussy cat.
  11. Pet Insurance

    We were with PetPlan until they went stupid and their cover was great. Now we are with bow wow meow through HCF.
  12. .

    Is Mita still on this forum? Here is some information she gave me back in 2005. And I'm guessing it is still valid. I don't know exactly who the vet was.
  13. .

    @HunterDoggy different breeders may have different processes. I've had dogs with very little asked in advance by the breeder, and no contact afterwards. After all, breeders are people too! And mine have been found from the DOL mature dogs page Diva linked to.
  14. Red Fox Labradors

    My boss has one - bought from a breeder somewhere near Sydney. Not much help to you in Perth, but I could ask for the name if you like?
  15. A Springer! Don't tempt me. Not sure what the OH would say about dog #4 however.
