  1. Crate training book..

    Can anyone recommend a good book / reference point to crate training a puppy? Thanks in advance.
  2. Hi All, It has been a long time since i have posted. I am in a bit of a pickle... we are wanting to add a puppy to our familY ..but I'm really not sure which direction i would like to take; Rescue or purebred?? We have 2 cats Molly is 19 and Rosie is 9, we also have 2 children 16 and 13- both children are great with animals and would love whatever dog we decide on. In the past i have always had rescues and have adored them, they have all lived to be old, fat and happy. My husband has also only had a back yard breed Staffy who also lived to be old, fat and happy. I would like a puppy as i really need them to be great with the cats and its also been a million years since we have had a brand new puppy. We don't have a burning passion for any kind of breed in particular. The dog will get plenty of walks around the block each day plus river walks on the weekends. The pup will be a part of our family, i only work school hours and it will also have the company of the cats while i am at work. We are also planning to crate train this one. We hardly ever go away and if we did she would board with the cats at my awesome vets. We are leaning towards a mini foxie (which is unlike the staffy type dogs we have has before), a small robust family dog, small poo's and with an active personality but still a lap dog sounds ideal. The problem i have is that i am choosing a dog that will get a home regardless. Something about it just doesn't sit well with me..maybe you guys in rescue have some other dogs we could consider? Would prefer female, smaller breed and are located in Sydney. Thanks in advance. X
  3. Boe was returned to the pound yesterday
  4. Hi Guys, Long storey so i will try and shorten it. A lady I know has recently adopted an 11 year old Kelpie boy from the pound. He was surrended by previous owner for fence jumping and constantly escaping. He only did one night at the pound and was adopted the very next day. The problem is they weren't kidding when they said fence jumper, he has escaped his new home daily. This lady only works part time so he on only left home for a few hours at a time. Anyway, fast forward she has had enough and can't keep going with him and is saying she will be taking him back to the pound today. Any chance anyone can fit this boy in? He is so friendly, he has been around my cats and didn't care at all. I think in addition to the fence jumping his behaviour is being reinforced by alot of us in the community as when he escapes he is getting lots of attention, he is meeting up with families at the park and getting fed morning tea..people are taking him inside and feeding him..he is having a great old time!
  5. I rang the pound and they have no record of this dog! The lady I spoke to said that if the dog was chipped (which she was because the vet nurse scanned her and that's how we knew she was 8 and listed as Ridgeback cross, she also commented that she had been brought in to the clinic on another occasion that she remembered after again being found in that state by a member of the public) that she probably juts took the dog home. This dog was deathly skinny you could see every bone in her body, and unless she was missing and roaming the streets for weeks she is probably being uncared for by her owners.... Don't know what else I can do...but I just cant get the image of her out of my head. Is it actually possible that the ranger took her home? Even though she was chipped shouldn't she have gone to the pound??
  6. Thanks I will check out the FB page. How is Tara cat doing? Hearing and seeing her storey all those years ago broke me heart. I remember the outcome was that she went to live with a vet friend of yours. I hope she is well and living out the rest of her days free and happy. xx
  7. Hi all, Yesterday while I was taking my cat the vet in Penrtih/ Nepean a young chap brought it the skinniest saddest looking dog I have ever seen. I started talking to the guy and the vet nurse, the guy had found the dog the previous day wandering the streets and brought her in to see if she was chipped. Vet nurse checked for chip and confirmed that she had one, she was listed as Ridgeback x and that the dog had been brought in to same vet clinic for same reasons..found wondering the street and starving. She said the dog was 8 years old..to me she was the size of a adolescent pup. I Think she said her name was bella...or something starting with b The guy that brought her in wanted to adopt her and was absolutely in love with her. Yesterday arvo when I went to pick my cat up a different nurse said that the council had already picked her up and she was taken to pound. Hopefully this means the owners are surrendering her and she can have a chance at a life without misery. Last night as I fed, played with and tucked my furry babies into bed this poor girls eyes were haunting me..they were so big and beautiful but so very sad Does anyone have any info on her, I know some of you work closely with HP pound. I would like to donate some money towards her rescue..i don't have much but would still like to help. Any info would be greatly appreciated. xx
  8. Can You Teach An Old Dog New Tricks?

    Thanks Greytmate, thats a really great suggestion :) Much appreciated :)
  9. Can You Teach An Old Dog New Tricks?

    Thanks Panto :) Yes, rehoming any of these animals is not an option, Jubs is part of his family and the cats are part of hers. A secure cattery is probably the best solution that can be found.
  10. Can You Teach An Old Dog New Tricks?

    All good points thanks guys :) The cats are used to living with dogs, they were reared with dogs (who have now passed away), but i understand what you are both saying. I think that the cattery is prob the best idea too, Ta! Greatly appreciated :)
  11. Hi all, This may seem like a silly question, but is there any way to re-train a dog ( an old dog) to not be reactive towards cats? Jasper (aka Jubs) is a 10 year old staffy who has never been friends with cats. Jubs is part of a household where she has always been the only pet. Usual behaviour is for her to bark at the fence when she sees them. Jubs has never attacked a cat, but not sure if thats because she has just never had the opportunity too. Jasper is very much loved part of the family and is a very friendly loving little dog. If you wanted to introduce two cats into her home, is there any way to train her to ignore them, or do you think for the sake of the cats safety they will always need to be seperated? I know usually dogs who are reactive to cats are re-homed to houses without cats, but in this circumstance Jubs is not being re-homed, rather the owner asking his girlfriend move in and she has two cats, that must go with her. Any ideas? PJ :)
