  1. Guide for first puppy

    talking a pens for pups got me reminiscing so here are a couple of photos
  2. Guide for first puppy

    Disneyland type play areas are great for puppy’s and older dogs. We used to have one with a huge tractor tyre in it plus logs to walk along and a sand shell to dig in. All gone now except the big tyre which is still a great favourite with our dogs of all ages — now it has a tunnel entrance built by generations of dogs and a great place to sit!
  3. Night time nightmare of my own making

    The. most important thing is routine. He will learn very quickly how to get round you, so be firm and stick with the timetable that YOU want. If he needs to go out during the night, straight out and back - no playing or rubbing of tummy etc
  4. I’m being deluged with Ads about dog beds

    Nothing quite like a Snooza. Good quality and service and an excellent free repair service for when someone takes a nibble or the zipper gets broken
  5. Field Lab breeders in Vic

    If you need any other info you can P M me
  6. Field Lab breeders in Vic

    Look at the Retrieving Australia website. Breeders advertise litters on the forum page and you can look back and see the breeders on there
  7. Michael at Surefind Kennels (see the banner advertising on the main Dogzonline pages). Will make cages for the back of any vehicle. he is very reliable.
  8. 2x4 dog biscuits

    I understand that the company who made them is no longer doing so. not sure if they are closing down completely or not. Does anyone know ?
  9. I am in Victoria so no use to you. Try to find one reasonably close to home as he/she will need to see your dog to be able to prescribe a treatment regime and help you with her specific problems
  10. There is no doubt that a Veterinary Behavourist would be able to give your dog drugs etc and advise you on care matters, but armed with that advice, you will still have to Iive with her for forever long it takes and only you can answer this. Speaking from personal experience, I can say that my Vet Behavourist is a great source of help and support.
  11. My puppy has parvo

    As I pointed out, there are now reasonably specific regulations in Victoria concerning your rights as a puppy buyer and the breeders obligations. It might be an idea to check these . . .
  12. Buy yourself some clippers and keep the hair in that area short. The same happens to other breeds and, with practice it will look OK. i would not shave. Just use the clippers like stroking down the length of the hair. -if you were closer I’d say come round and I will show you, it really is easy.
  13. My puppy has parvo

    There are very specific regulations about this in Victoria, so do check before you “attack” the breeder
  14. Drink Bowl

    Don’t know anything about the one you mention, I use a Road Refresher which does not spill and is difficult to play with the water.
  15. adaptil spray for nervous dog

    The vet said I can give him three x 450mg if I foresee a problem day (ie lots of male visitors!) but I have never given him more than 2. I have to admit that Ted is much improved, but it has taken us 4+ months to get this far. Don’t expect too much too soon.
