  1. Selecting a Dog Breed

    If the dog is going to be on it's own 5 days a week from 8 - 5.30 then I think it's a bit mean to then make it also sleep outside at night. In the winter it will be lucky to see you beyond being fed. I don't have a problem with dogs sleeping outside in general but only if they have plenty of time with their owners hanging out and doing stuff. I do agree with it not being locked in the house while you are at work, besides the toileting issue it's pretty boring being in an empty house.
  2. tell your parents you will no longer be visiting with your child unless dog is in a crate.
  3. buy a crate that the dog can go into and still be part of the action.
  4. What to feed a Puppy (& other questions)

    The breeder should give you a list fo what the pup is used to eating. Keep her on that for a few days as she adjusts to the move and then alter her food if you wish. Keep in mind some breeders will say you void any contract if you feed her different to what the breeder says. Pup should also be on a worming schedule and you continue on from that. As long as the worming chews cover the weight of the pup then it should be fine. Again I wouldn't worm her, even if due, for the first few days. Yes feed her at least 3 times a day. No need for milk and extra calcium in her diet. My greyhound pups are fed a puppy dry food until they are around 12 weeks of age and then I switch to an adult food. By 8 weeks they are happy to eat chicken wings and necks and minced whole carcasses. Chews for my greys are split marrow bones, turkey necks and similar.

    The dog humps the 4 yo! Get help fast. And you need to teach your son some manners as well as the dog. If need be lock the back door and take out the key so the kid can't get outside to the dog when you are not watching. Buy a crate and train both kid and dog that when the dog is in the crate that's it - it's a no go zone. But you need a professional trainer quick smart
  6. ethical breeders don't breed for colour, they breed for sound dogs, they choose what dog will complement their dog. Colour is the last thing, or should be, chosen
  7. Don't they have to be on concrete? As in escape proof, no digging out
  8. up to you if you pay the deposit or not. I never take deposits on my pups. What happens if something goes wrong between now and pick up date? Will you get the deposit back? From what I've seen on the pet pages most byber's are asking for deposits. I wouldn't be too worried about missing out. Those cross breeds are always being advertised. But most want deposits. If you go ahead make sure you get a receipt and I would be asking for a copy of some ID. At least take down the rego numbers of any cars in the driveway.
  9. Importing semen from NZ

    The only difference I see would be the airfare would be cheaper. Everything else would be the same. As for why, if that's where the dog you want is then that's why. Most people choose the dog that would most suit their bitch not just OS because they think it's better
  10. Vet warns of Greyhound Adoption Risk

    I just don't think one breed should be singled out. Plenty of other breeds with very high prey drive and many of them are owned by idiots. Maybe if the leash laws and other laws were enforced everyone could walk their dog without fear regardless of breed.
  11. long hairs crop up occasionally. Nothing dodgy about it
  12. What do I do now

    you need to desex the bitch at least asap or you'll have more then 2 to look after!
  13. Vet warns of Greyhound Adoption Risk

    In Victoria it is illegal to have any greyhound off leash in a public place, including dog parks. I also thought Queensland has had no muzzle rules in place for quite a few years as does several councils in NSW (going on comments off a greyhound yahoo group from several years ago). Lot's of dogs are unmuzzled and off leash who shouldn't be. Deed not breed springs to mind. I have showbred greyhounds. Have to go back nearly 100 years to find the last racing dog in their pedigree. Raised in the home with cats. Neighbours cats (and their free ranging bunny) were/are fair game to my dogs. As they were to my GSD's. And to my smallish pound pup. And birds! The GSD's didn't care about the birds but the greys and the pound pup have/did all dine on them. I'm totally in support of the muzzle off law. Deed not breed!
  14. You can always attach a roof to the pen. Use shadecloth and plastic zip ties. I'm glad you are going to look into a safe outdoor option for her. I'm not a fan of the bathroom idea. At the very least make something in a room near a window so pup can see various things.
  15. Ankc breed rego trends over time

    Of course still ANKC registered.
