  1. What's her reaction to the lawn mower? Is she barking and chasing it? If so that is pretty normal behaviour for a working breed and desensitizing should work.
  2. Oh he is gorgeous! If I was 10 years younger I would take him on. All the best Huckleberry. <3
  3. One of my Cavs got bitten by a black ant recently. She was screaming and waving her leg around. Screamed when I went to pick her up to check her over. I only discovered it was a black ant because it was squashed in the fur of her paw, near where she was licking. So it could possibly be a bite from something tiny. I would be taking her out the front, on lead, for supervised toilet breaks and see how she goes. she may now associate the back yard with something scary. Good luck.
  4. I do both my Cavs' feet with the Shear Magic and find them easy. The dogs seem to like it too as they spread their toes! lol I always leave a little fur between the pads though, to protect that sensitive area from pebbles, rocks etc.
  5. I have the Shear Magic and while they are great, they have a narrow small blade so might not be what you're looking for. I use them for bottom of the feet and inside ears as they give a close shave.
  6. I use a decor cereal container available from Woolworths to put some in and store the rest of the food in the sealed dog food bag in the pantry. I don't have any trouble squeezing the air out of the dog food bag and resealing it. I then send the decor container through the dishwasher regularly. What size bags are you buying?
  7. A low prey-drive Cavalier would suit your needs, except for the recall bit. As they are bird dogs, they often taken off at the beach when a seagull is spotted. Good luck in your search,
  8. I've also frozen the Prime100 rolls into meal sizes without any problems.
  9. My first dog as an adult was an ACD. We learnt a lot together and she was an awesome dog (as was my 2nd ACD and we also learnt a lot together). Training of the dog is for for life, ACDs need a lot of mental stimulation as well as physical, and they are very active well up into their senior years.
  10. How much exercise and mental stimulation does he get? He is at an age now where he will have a very high activity level. If he was mine I would try doing some mental exercises later in the evening eg trick training or there are heaps of ideas on the internet. And he is gorgeous.
  11. Gosh that is very sad for the pup and your family. I think at this stage you have to give the fluoxetine time to work. Is this breed normally outgoing? Have you tried to do any basic training? What happens if everyone is out of the house except for the pup's primary care giver?
  12. Sorry to hear about this. It's a stressful time for all and I also recommend a dog behaviourist. Try Underdog Training as I think they are in Glen Iris - they may be able to give you a phone consult with some temporary measures until your lockdown restrictions eased. https://underdogtraining.com.au/ Good luck!
  13. What Diva said! There is a Facebook group called Dog Transport Australia where they all seem to advertise. There is also a company called Domestic Pet Transport that are running charter flights for pets! Here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/domesticpetsau/photos/a.111567837457738/262950968986090
  14. Do you praise and treat her when she goes outside? Praise needs to be over the top and high pitched so she knows you are excited by her wee on the grass!
