  1. Now that the website etc has been launched, I have to seriously think about accommodation. I'm happy camping, its in Skye, Victoria in April 2018. Has anybody got any good suggestions of places to look at booking?
  2. Pug Health Testing

    A friend of mine is looking for a pug breeder and has asked me for help. I've sent her here to the breeders page, but can I please ask what health testing is done for pugs?
  3. Unusual Cross-Breds

    What's getting me at the moment, is if you go and look, most of the cross-breds and pure without papers pups are selling for (if not more) the same price as pure breds with papers. Many years ago, I had a girl, one of the prettiest I'd seen, she had the blue speckled nose of a cattledog, but colouring she was a piebald of the tan of my dobies and white. She was about the size of a working kelpie and the flightiest dog I'd met, if she wasn't happy, the first thought would be flight. No idea what she was, she and all her littermates just turned up on our street.
  4. Spay Inconteinence

    Cheers 😊
  5. Spay Inconteinence

    I realize bitches can get inconteinence from spaying, but what about boys? My boy's dribbling, especially from lying down to getting up. Fine in every other way, including no signs of pain (and believe me, this boy could win an Oscar, for even a bit of pain), so I was wondering could it come from desexing him? Edited for spelling
  6. Contact Colin at http://sherae.com.au/ He's fantastic and has transported both my dogs and cat backwards and forwards across Australia for me.
  7. How To Tell If Your Bitch Is In Season

    I just love how the dog is sitting there looking at the camera as if to say "Really?"
  8. Electric Fencing

    Is she really keen on something, a special treat for her. Can you happen to leave a few close to the house (not near the fence) for her to happen to "find", so that outside without you, tends to be a good place?
  9. Help...unruly Dog

    To keep her mind busy, the more tricks you can teach her, the better. These you can do in your own kitchen and you can get tips on how to do them off youtube. It's fun and rewarding for both of you.
  10. Dog Breed Chart Help

    For the dobie, health problems are DCM (Dilated Cardio Myopathy spelling sorry), Von Wilderbrands disease, Wobblers and history of cancer. Testing is Von Wilderbrands, DCM (only 1 gene at the moment unfortunately) and DINGS.
  11. Dobermann Thread

    Bumping the dobie thread back up to the top. Has anyone got any news? We were going for our second agility trial this weekend, but Missy is coming into season in the next few weeks and is going through that period of "What? You want me to do what? You've never taught me that." 😣😣 She can be quite embarrassing sometimes.
  12. Training Recommendations In Perth.

    Perth Training and Obedience Dog Club is a fantastic club. They do both obedience and agility on seperate nights.
  13. I agree that it looks too wide a gap for prongs. She could have been wearing a too thick a collar and the skin has constantly been folded back on it??
  14. If This Can Help Anyone

    Thanks Troy 😊
