  1. Lab proof dog beds

    I have used old tyres too they can be fastened on to wood or horse stable rubber matting if necessary
  2. Here is a pic of a little "spare" pen I have in the yard. It is completely enclosed and safe - can be padlocked it needed. ('Fiver' is not quite sure why he has been enclosed!!) I have pushed an old frying pan under the bottom rail. It has two treats in it (but he is not amused). Note that I have not had to come into contact with the dog inside the pen, and I could tie the pan handle to the verandah post if I wanted to keep it within my reach so can remove it.
  3. Not sure that this will help you,but a couple of things in my system of feeding might be of use: 1.i prepare the feed dishes the night before. This means that I can feed all dogs - I have 6 or more - almost instantaneously. 2. Eachdog goes into its own pen and i close all gates. No food appears until all dogs are in. 3 the stainless steel feed dish for each dog is pushed under the gate so that it slides into the middle of the pen. The steel bowls slide really well 4Each dog can eat as fast or slow as it likes without interference should add that i do not have any food aggression problems, but better safe than sorry
  4. Car Sick

    I have a bitch who is now 11 and all her life she has hated the car. Cries, is sick etc. I have tried everything and just given up!
  5. Stud a dog

    Unless your dog is very well known in dog circles , and excels in some aspect eg at the shows or trials You might find it hard to get suitable studs for him.however, you will need to get his hips and elbows xrayed and scored, eyes tested, genetic tests done etc. Stud fee is usually the price of a puppy, but is negotiable. probably your best first move is to approach the breeder of your pup and ask him/her if they would be interested in his services. If they agree then you should probably give them a much reduced fee (or free service) in order to get your boy recognised? Don’t expect to make much money unless your boy isVERY well known! you will find that most breeders of standing have their own boys and will not be interested unless you have something rather special or unique. sorry to sound a bit negative, I have been breeding dogs for 40+ years and only twice have I “fallen across” an unknown dog that I have subsequently used at stud and I imagine other breeders would be the same. - could be wrong of course.
  6. How legit is pups4sale?

    There will be a lot of people who are Registered breeders that advertise on Dogs4sale as well as Dogzonline. You need to check their registration credentials regardless. If they are from Victoria, they should have a PER number and similar ID from other States. Sorry you will have to do your homework - it just got very complicated as of 1st July 2019
  7. Try the Department of Agriculture site: Code of Practice for the. Operation of Breeding and Rearing Businesses section 5, Sale of Animals. 5(i’j Guarantee read page 23 and the notes on page 24 not sure how this might/might not apply to animals bought in NSW , but you could ask the question.
  8. I see you are in Victoria where there are now very specific regulations about the rights and obligations of the breeder and purchaser of a puppy. These govern the amount of compensation the breeder must give you and second veterinary opinions etc. they are all detailed in the Code of Practice drawn up by the State government and is on their web site.

  13. In my face

    Blow in her face and she will turn away
  14. Meet Banks

    Yes, this is serious Gundog stuff. Usually takes at least 6 months for the (very) basic stuff, but Banks is destined for offical Field Trials, so I do not expect him back for many months! Yes I will miss him, but since I got him as a potential stud dog, he has a lot of growing up to do before I can use him. i have made a good deal with a friend, he gets to trial him, I get to use him over my (working) Cocker girl, and we both, eventually, get a well trained Gundog. in the meantime I have plenty of (working) springers to keep me busy!
