  1. Italian Greyhounds

    Thanks, I had the pleasure of meeting a bunch at a coursing meeting in Bendigo last month. That was pretty exciting as I've never seen one come out in SA . To the people that have suggested whopper my boyfriend is pretty adamant about having a small dog I think 12kg+ Is pushing it. I'll make sure he gets pet insurance or has enough in savings for any mishaps. If it ends up being too risky the dog doesn't need to course
  2. Setters

    If you have not already maybe have a look at gundog trials . Even find some catalogues and look up any of the prefixes that come up.
  3. Harness or Collar, what do you use for walks?

    Most harnesses are ill fitting and just make it uncomfortable to walk let alone pull. Imagine walking in too tight shoes with the laces tied together. I like to walk my guys in flat collars. But I'll use haltis for walks in urban areas, just gives me some more head control on the event of cats or other scary things haha
  4. Italian Greyhounds

    Hey all, long time since I've visited DOL So my partner wants a little dog, I want a greyhound, so an iggy seems like a reasonable dog for us. It would mainly be a companion for him, as I often take the big dogs away and leave boyfriend home alone. My dogs do lure coursing and I'd love for future iggy to give that a go too. Are there any breeders who breed a more athletic / robust type of iggy that would enjoy some activity but mainly snoozing ?
  5. Flying with dog

    Hi, looking for some advice. I want to fly my gsp x from Adelaide to Perth for the sled dog nationals. What is the best way to do this and any companies to suggest? I will be flying over too is that changes anything.
  6. Help Needed Starting Out With Tracking

    Thanks Ness, I'm tossing up whether to enter the trail on May 21st. If trials are cancelled do you lose your money? Unfortunately I don't know anyone else who tracks in SA to get advice from. Are there any books, dvds or youtube channels that may be of help?
  7. I am hoping to trail in tracking with Fritz my Bullarab this year. We've been doing a fair bit of practice in the forest. I've been setting him tracks myself and also having my boyfriend go and get lost in the forest. He seems to be doing really well at following the tracks and really enjoys himself. I want to enter some trials, but I don't know how 'good' we have to be not to embarrass ourselves completely haha. I can't make it to any of the tracking training days until at least May as they're held on weekday mornings? Help, advice, anything pleease :)
  8. Thanks that worked and I was able to update the details and print it myself. Hopefully they accept the certificate
  9. Trying to get my boy registered as an associate. He was desexed today and on the associate register for it says I need to provide a sterilisation certificate ( got it) and microchip identification. The vets were able to write the chip number on the sterilisation certificate, but I'm not sure if that's what I need. Can someone point me in the right direction
  10. Dogs On Utes

    I'm sick of seeing unrestrained dogs in vehicles full stop. The amount of people on facebook ( dog people some DOLers) that post pictures of their dogs unrestrained on road trips really blows my mind. I don't really want a 40kg projectile launched at me if we're involved in a crash
  11. How Many Times Has Your Dog Escaped?

    Fritz once, human error, boyfriend left the gate open. Esky.. umm three in the first week I moved here and more since. Bloody cow
  12. Mushing

    Plus Gee and Haw sound very distinct from one another. How many times do you listen to your gps and wonder if it told you to turn right or left. You could use any words, so long as the dogs know what they mean ;)

  15. Flying A Dog From Sa To Qld

    Hey guys, Considering flying my bullarab boy and myself up to a race in qld this year. Was wondering how I go about planning and booking the trip? Do I still need to go through an agent like dogtainers or wayrod? Can anyone give me rough costs? He's 38.5 kg so Im guessing it's going to be costly!
