  1. Bull terrier puppy mill

    I've read in a couple of places that 2 dogs were PTS because of what happened while they were in transit. Dog fights was not mentioned but was what I suspected if that is the reason. There is a lot more to this story then is being said IMO. I personally think 110 dogs is too many for any one person to own but those dogs were healthy happy dogs. Even the feet on the pups were clean. Not sure what to believe, the dogs were kept in those conditions full time or only placed there waiting for the RSPCA to load them all up. I believe the 2 week old pup was fed and cared for by an experienced person. And I hated the RSPCA's spiel about what a hard time they had while already flogging off the dogs
  2. Progesterone levels again

    Relax! I can't recall any of my girls levels but I don't consider 53 too high. You've had a mating and now you wait.
  3. The RSPCA is keeping the pups and the adults are going to rescue.
  4. shetland sheepdog ears

    could you ask the breeder of your pup?
  5. Buying a puppy

    I return emails pretty much as soon as I see them if only to say I'll get back to you, I'm in the middle of a run of night shifts But as I get so few enquiries for my breed it's hardly a strain. I can imagine having a popular breed and getting many emails or calls per day could be tiring, especially when so many of those would be the one liners. (got pups, how much type emails)
  6. My dog has a mammary tumour

    you can always give the suprelorin implant if you wish to decrease hormones.
  7. Greyhounds

    well why not, everyone else is doing it so the greyhounds should as well off and running
  8. hip dysplasia.

    Poor bloody dog
  9. Puppy

    if 3 weeks old they can be started on a bit of solid food. I start my large breed pups on raw mince. I'd be wondering if the formula is not enough for them and they are dropping their blood sugars. I see you have thought along the same lines. Try solid food.
  10. socializing pups at shows

    I don't see it much either. I took two of my pups when they were around 10 weeks old if I remember rightly (nearly 10 now). I didn't walk them around but had them crated and toileted them out the back. I also recall a pen of pups ( no idea of age but not teeny tiny ) of a rare breed that someone I know ended up getting one which started them off on a great adventure! It's no different to anywhere else. It's a calculated risk, maybe a bit higher of getting something as so many dogs in one spot, from all over the place.
  11. What Breed Is My Dog?

    I think crossed with a kelpie but really who would know. You love her and that's all that matters
  12. Dos and mobility scooters

    You could try this: get a nylon lead the length you want and the plastic pipe nearly the same length minus the hand hold. Cut off about an inch each end. Take the first ring and tie the lead around it in a knot. Thread the lead through the long section then tie the 2nd ring onto the lead with another knot. Leaving the handle free to go over your arm rest.
  13. Help

    Bring your professional trainer back and in the meantime make sure your beagle is contained when people come over. A vet trip to make sure there is no pain issues going on would be helpful as well. If he is doing this while away from the house (i.e. on walks) he should also be wearing a muzzle.
  14. Dos and mobility scooters

    Any Mens Sheds near you? They could attach a clip to one end of a bit of pipe and put a handle on the other to hook over your arm rest. Any handy person should be able to rig you up something for minimal cost.
  15. Dos and mobility scooters

    don't know about any road rules but for the leash problem could you thread it trough a length of poly pipe or similar? Could one of the bike attachments like the Springer or Easydog walker be adapted?
  16. House Training Trouble!

    at that age I would still be taking pup out to wee, giving a food treat and then let her inside. If she has been out for a while either do as Diva says or, what I do, is walk around the back yard for a few minutes with the pup and they usually go then. If you are not outside with her you don't know when she last went, a little exercise encourages them to go again.
  17. I need help!l

    what's a schnoodle? Have you asked the breeder of your puppy for help? Puppy school? I can't recommend a trainer but I'm sure there will be someone along who could. I wouldn't really like to suggest much because it does sound like you need professional help and good on you for seeking it out. Maybe seek your neighbours out and let them know you are trying to fix the problem but it might stay noisy for a bit longer.
  18. cost depends on size of dog when it's flown
  19. They wouldn't have known the pup was brewing something, breeders don't have a crystal ball. However if this was one of mine I would pay your vet bill/s for this. Maybe you should phone your breeder and talk directly with them.
  20. I too use Jet Pets but use their crates
  21. Phenergan Dosage

    I'm currently using the travel one from HomeoPet Seems to have done wonders for my travel anxious dog.
  22. sometimes bitches who have been best friends end up fighting to the death. Many stories of people owning two bitches that end up having to keep them apart for life or rehoming one. That's what she most likely meant. I've kept bitches together with nil problems but I am aware it could happen.
  23. Breeders insurance

    I don't think there is any insurance that covers pregnancy . I never found one.
  24. Weight Loss - what is safe rate?

    200 grams was just a guess. At least it prompted some other answers for you
  25. Weight Loss - what is safe rate?

    I would think no more then 200 grams a week DDD. After 9 weeks he would have lost 1.8 kgs.
