  1. Another good resource, if you're on Facebook, would be a Great Dane group that breeders frequent.
  2. Upper Motor Neurone Disease - Tamar update

    So sorry LMO. Thinking of you.
  3. Victims to vigilantes, article about puppy scammers

    This just came up in my FB newsfeed. I had heard of the Facebook group and was interested to hear of how it evolved. Scammers make it so hard for legitimate breeders and the members of the public looking for a pup.
  4. Anal Glands

    I do my dogs' glands and I definitely don't stick my fingers in their anus! Let me see if I can find a video on how I do it. ETA:
  5. Piece of tooth left after extraction?

    As there is a huge gap next to that tooth, I am thinking it is a different tooth.
  6. Advice Please: I'm interested in 9wk old puppy for rehoming

    Normally the breeder would have taken the pup back. Has this not happened? If not, then I presume she is helping them rehome the puppy. It's a little unclear from the post who you will be dealing with so who has the pup?
  7. Wahl KM2 Clipper motor wanted

    I find Feather Edge really good, why not contact them and ask. It is their speciality! http://www.clippersharpening.com.au/general-pages/home.phps
  8. Puppy Wees

    They like to pee on soft things. At 4 months she won't be reliably toilet trained so I think it is human error. If you can't watch her for a period of time you need to take her out to toilet before hand.

    Maybe they can be fixed Boronia.
  10. The only thing I can think of is to cover the carpet with old towels, quilts etc and keep the dog contained to one area.
  11. With my last pup, she would jump all over me as I was trying to get out the laundry door with a basket of washing. The puppy school trainer told me to put a dog bed near the door and drop a handful of treats on to the bed just as I was about to step out. The idea was to get the pup (and older dog) to jump into the bed as I was stepping out the door, in readiness for treats. It worked! Maybe you could adapt that idea and making sure there is no interaction with the dog unless he/she is sitting quietly. Hope that helps.
  12. I would still contact the breeder you got your girl from. I got my last breeder rehome by making contact. She was going to keep the dog that I now have but decided she would have a better life with me when she learnt of my situation.
  13. Rehoming mothers

    I have recently taken on a retired breeding bitch. The only 'problem' that I am aware of is a small increase in the risk of mammary cancer down the track due to not being desexed earlier. However, there are no guarantees with any living thing.
  14. Upper Motor Neurone Disease - Tamar update

    How about if you raise the dish that she doesn't have to bend her head down? She does look wobbly in those photos. A friend lost her old cat to this disease recently. The poor cat got very constipated.
  15. 8 week staffy

    High pitched squealing stopped my girl - must be immediate and then pup praised as soon as he stops. Another way is to redirect them with a toy and play a game. Heaps of info on the internet on puppy raising if you need more help.
