  1. My beautiful MF passed away at the start of the year. Super duper active, probably settled down at around 7yrs. I had a bell on her collar as she was ALWAYS under my feet and was a big tripping hazard.
  2. My 11yr old girl passed on January 2nd this year. It was just under a month that I got a pup. My house was so empty, nothing felt right. I too deliberately chose a male dog. For the first week or so with him, I felt like I was betraying Lily. Being a pup he has kept me so so busy and I hold him responsible for my sanity!. I haven't grieved for Lily yet, I don't know why but I just can't. I know one day when things aren't going right, the thought of Lil will open the floodgates, i'm scared the gates won't close
  3. Yep, they're the exact ones i'm looking at. Bunnings sell them for around the $200 mark. I rang several glass companies, one said $300 and the other said $600 (always pays to ring around). Yes, i'd have to have a complete new panel of glass. That Autoslide looks so cool. Ah, I thought I had stumbled onto something brilliant, bit slow aren't I? :laugh: The glass is a bit expensive, would you have to change it back if you move? I'll get the clip in door. It's the cheapest option and i'v seen one at someones house, they look good and are lockable. Masters don't sell them. Lucky i'm not
  4. True :laugh: Seeing my boy is only 17wks he is untrusted unsupervised. If I go out during the day, he goes into the laundry and he sleeps in his crate in my bedroom. When he's older he will gain full access to the house unsupervised. Just for interests sake (I just had to know :laugh: ) The Autoslide starter kit is $367 + GST. I rang Petstock to get a price on the sliding door insert, they start at $400 I said Bunnings sell them for around $200. The sales assistant didn't believe me. So I went to Bunnings and they are $185, but they had none in stock, so i'll see if Masters sell them
  5. They wait patiently in their crates :D Or i'm guessing you could just turn off the power switch and it won't work.

  7. I'm guessing we have members here who have had a glass door cut to install a doggy door. I know prices will vary, just after a estimate for a small/medium dog. I love the click in pannels (it is for a sliding glass door). The ones i'v seen are around the $200 mark. I'm just wondering which way would be cheapest.
  8. This is my whole point. Yep I was in the wrong, but I don't feel that I would of deserved to have my pup killed for simply approacing another dog. I'm not being melodramatic, I really do believe this dog would have killed my pup if he had of got him. Even though I was at fault, it has scared me and put me off going back.
  9. I don't know what the set up is at lilypily's training centre but other than one occasion where I wasn't thinking anyone would try to walk between our chair and the next one over because it was in front of a wall, leaving me nowhere to go when someone did decide to do just that, we usually sat on one side of a walkway in to and out of the group, under the advice of our behaviourist who was delivering the training. The reasoning was that the dogs were placed in front of us on a mat and the walkway gap was much larger than the gap between the rest of the chairs (which people also randomly walked

  11. This^^^^ is why I attribute some fault as well on the other owner (not dog) I too have owned a very dominant aggressive male and I was like the above quote. It would of been negligent of me to take him to a dog class, he would have wreaked havok. It was one of those split second moments and I believe that me yanking the lead saved my puppy. Yes, my fault for allowing my pup to enter another dogs space, but (waiting to be jumped on again) if you know your dog has issues then don't put them in a close environment with other dogs. Dogs with issues need training too and how do you know that b
  12. You worded your post beautifully, much better than I could get across. When I refer to a DA dog, I don't mean the snarls or snaps that can happen between dogs in situations like dog clubs. This dog went in for the kill, and my 2.5kg pup wouldn't of had a chance. Even though it was my fault for being distracted and allowing my dog to get into this dogs space, It doesn't make me want to go back again. To risky.

  14. Thanks Marg and Gamby. :) It sure won't happen again.
