  1. My two love them. Nah they're not hard like antlers, they can chew on them and easily scrape teeth marks into them. I think they're great.
  2. I've been using Pet Circle for about 11 years now. I get all my dog, cat and chicken supplies from there with the exception of cat litter, only because I like a particular brand that they don't sell. They're great. We've had the occasional hiccup but it's always resolved very quickly and easily. You can just order as you need, or set up automatic deliveries of items at whatever frequency you want, and they'll remind you a week beforehand to give you the opportunity to change it if needed. Edited to add: Budget Pet Products is who I get my cat litter from. I prefer Pet Circle overa
  3. I'm also late to the thread, sorry. I hope everything worked out okay @Bexrose. What did you decide on in the end?
  4. Oh daaaamn they are all so beautiful! I'd LOVE to own bunnies and pigs! I can't have either here
  5. Oh damn, I remember reading about them on here about 9 years ago when we got Kyojin! They would have been sooo handy when we got Dash, he was a terror of a puppy.
  6. I heard about it on the radio this morning. So horrible. The poor husband must be devastated.
  7. I get Dash's Leading Raw at Petstock (they sell Big Dog too). That's in Brisbane, but hopefully your closest one will have them too. You'll want some decent freezer space!
  8. I started Dash on Black Hawk (as per his breeder) but then 6 months later transitioned him onto Leading Raw BARF patties for dinner (He still has kibble for breakfast, which I don't mind continuing because I can scatter it for him to find or stuff into things etc).
  9. I can't say for sure, but there was a dog at the dog park I ran into a few weeks ago and the owner said he was a Catahoula. Definitely didn't look like either of those two links, but moreso like the actual one from the AKC. It was a crossbred rescue for sure and about 11 years old.
  10. I only have a 7 month BC, so I'm not the most experienced, but yes, I would say that all sounds pretty great. Right now Dash still gets tired very easily (but recharges just as quickly). He loves to fetch, swim (he's a natural swimmer and LOVES it!), play tug, solve treat puzzles, run around the yard with me and go for walks. And also sit in my lap and cuddle for as long as I'm there. If I'm sitting on the ground, he'll want to be in my lap. He's an amazing dog and I love him to pieces, but right now (and I'm hoping he grows out of it once he stops teething and matures past puppy stage) bu
  11. We have a 5 month old border collie puppy and we've just started leaving him outside when we go to work in the last week, but that's because we live on 2 acres with rural mesh fencing so we got an electric collar system installed to make sure he can't get out (some spots he could probably crawl under, but being a border collie, when he's bigger he'd definitely be able to clear them if he really wanted to). So as Dogsfevr said, it'd depend on the security of your yard in particular. Making sure there's nowhere he can escape, nothing he can hurt himself on/eat anything dangerous, ha
  12. Thanks everyone! I've passed your feedback onto my sister to do some research now with her husband. I don't think that would really work for them to be honest. It would definitely be possible to add a doggy door to their laundry but with the two young kids they always have clothes overflowing in the laundry or toys around the house etc that I don't think it'd work having a dog inside when they're not around to supervise unfortunately.
  13. Thanks so much guys, a few breed suggestions we'd never thought of so I'll get her to have a look at them. Funnily enough, she got a reply from another Cav breeder later that said they sounded perfect and that while Cavs would love to have someone home with them they cope better with being alone than some other breeds. Okay yep, I can definitely understand your reasoning here! That wasn't said by the breeder at all unfortunately, she seemed to think working part time was absolutely absurd and literally said she would never consider selling her a dog. I definitely agr
  14. Hey guys Just after some breed suggestions for my sister and her family please. - My sister, her husband and their two kids aged 4 and 7 - My sister's Rottie passed away before the kids and my brother-in-law has only had family dogs when he was a child - Brother in law works full time, and my sister is currently home full time, looking to return part time in about 6 months. - After a small to medium sized dog that must be good with kids - Independent but happy to have cuddles - Not yappy - The kids are outside a lot when home and the pup w
