  3. Soft Dog Crates Recommendations

    A bit of an ambiguous ad as the first sentence says: Here at K9+ Soft Dog Crates we have been designing and selling crates directly to dog owners since 2006 to provide what we believe to be the best value in Australia. They don't say they make them but that sentence does give you that impression
  4. Soft Dog Crates Recommendations

    I can't recommend any but had a look and there are these, made in Australia, they are not as cheap as Kogan or ebay but look pretty sturdy. The prices are there when you click on the model at the top of the page. http://k9softdogcrates.com.au/crates/caprice

  8. Hello there Ruby's Hooman, regarding Ruby's skin problems, message Amanda at Qld Westie Rescue facebook page https://www.facebook.com/westierescueqld/ or email her here: https://www.dogzonline.com.au/breeds/member.asp?name=REDINBRIN she will advise you on diet (Westies do better on raw) she has had many bad-skin Westies come through that have responded well to her care. Amanda will most likely give you her phone number so you can phone her at a specified time. You could also ask he about your new pup's breeder, she keeps a data-base in her head of the not-so-good ones Good luck, B.

  12. Advice beeded

    Hi Jaison, welcome to Dogz and I hope we can help with your predicament. What area of Qld are you from? perhaps some of us can suggest a reputable rescue near your area that you can go and have a chat to...whether to surrender one, or both of your dogs or to suggest options, your situation seems fairly urgent as you both must be exhausted and can't think logically, your little girl is requiring most of your partner's and your time (this is normal) and the added stress isn't good at all for your loved ones and, of course, your dogs. This may be the hardest thing you have ever done but you and your partner must seriously think about surrendering both dogs for your family's well being. Keep in mind that the dogs can't be very happy in their situation either.

  14. Boundary fence is being removed

    Our son had the same problem when the neighbour at the back wanted a retaining wall and a new fence. One of the Qld laws indicated that if the existing fence is still serviceable the neighbour has to pay all of the new fence, the other says: The general rule to retaining walls is that whoever changed the ground level (or who benefits from it, if the property has changed hands) bears the cost in proportion. If the retaining is caused by a ‘cut’, that person bears the cost. If it’s a ‘cut and fill’, both parties do according to the relative proportions.Next is to be sure as to the height of the retaining wall needed. Retaining walls up to 1 metre high generally don’t require building approval in Queensland, depending on load ratings (check with a builder). Retaining walls 1 metre in height or more require a building approval from your local Council. Then, if it’s on the boundary you’re going to need to negotiate with the neighbour about access. It’s difficult to impossible to build a retaining wall without accessing both sides of it. So do a Google search and find out the rules, visit your council to clarify any questions, DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING! Our son's neighbour's block was large and backed on to the three neighbouring blocks and she wanted all of them to contribute to costs, eventually she paid for everything herself as she didn't have a leg to stand on despite her trying to bully everyone including a 85y/o woman. So do your research
