  1. Secretkei I know how you feel, my 6 month old puppy is going through a phase where he is ignoring me at home and out walking etc. I have gone back to basics with him and am just trying to be patient but it is very embarrassing at the dog park when your dog is actually flipping himself over on the lead to try and get to other dogs. I had to put Mason in a gentle leader from about 16 weeks as I could not hold him on a normal lead/collar anymore. Chin up it will get better. My mom still has our family Ridgebacks and now at 10 years old they are very calm, they were a handful until about 4 or so.
  2. I heard the opposite is true, the earlier you desex them the less they grow and I heard that when you desex males their heads stop growing, would love some info on this....

  4. My 5 month old is humping his toys and people! He hasnt done it to me but he humps my OH and he humped my friends kids leg and another friends of ours leg. It is so embarrassing!!
  5. Firstly, it's a cross so nobody can give an estimate on what it should weight - it depends what it's crossed with. If it's crossed with a great dane then it's gonna be much bigger than if it's crossed with a JRT. Secondly - black ones don't weigh any different to any other colour purebred lab. A lab would be about 5kg at that age but this dog needs to be assessed on the correct weight for its structure. Hi - Sorry I could have explained that better couldn't I! Million things going on at work. It looks for all the world just like a lab puppy. Definately not crossed with a JRT or a
  6. I am keen to start next year when Mason is a bit older, will be cool if a few of us all start together.
  7. My pup had this a couple of times too when he was much younger, not sure what caused it.
  8. My pup had the same, he had a tear duct infection which when it started looked like that, I would see an opthamologist to be sure. If i had left it she said it would have been a disaster, as it is my pup was on antibiotics for 20 days... her problem is in both eyes but the left being the worst. Could this still possibly be a tear duct infection if it is affecting both eyes? becks, what could of antihistimine can i use and how much for 30kg? Only a specialist would be able to tell.

  10. I would even go see an opthamologist as they are best qualified to deal with the problem, I took my dog to the vet for an eye problem which needed an opthamologist, my pup had a tearing eye which turned out to be a tear duct system infection. He had to have his tear ducts flushed and antibiotics syringed through the system as well as oral antibiotics.
  11. My puppy stopped it after about 4 weeks after we got him but started again when he started teething, he is 19 weeks old and still tries to mouth us.
  12. Mason does the same thing, his is often chicken neck pieces, think he has done this 3x since I got him..
  13. Mason did the same for a long time, I just ignored it and kept taking him for a short drive like every second day to get used to it. After awhile he associated the car with going out and now he loves it!
  14. That's interesting! No, in Vic it's still 8 bags. I'm a dog groomer working at a petstore, which is why I know the difference for the different products. I wonder if they will be changing it across the board or if its a shop specific thing? Will have to suss it out... here in WA its also 10 bags...for Advance
  15. Yip its the ultimate doggy snack! They love it... followed a close second by horse poo...
