  1. Matted Fur

    I have an 11 month old Newfie and due to a combination of his extreme dislike to be brushed and me recently being very ill his grooming has been let go a little and now has a few matted patches, is my only option to clip these or cut them out?
  2. Over Excited Newf Puppy

    Just wondering if any one can offer any advice, I have a 7 month old Newfoundland who I just cant seem to stop jumping, he is quite good at not jumping on me but anybody else doesn't stand a chance!! And a bounding Newfoundland running and jumping over people can be quite daunting to most
  3. Cost To Desex Male Puppy

    I just recently paid around that amount for our puppy, and that was pretty much the standard price for the breed
  4. Council Registration/ Desexing

    What suprised me most is that dogs must be registered from 3 months of age... surely it is not suitable for all breeds at this age
  5. Council Registration/ Desexing

    Yes I am in one of these councils, can only register an entire dog if VCA registered Not saying that is a bad thing. But how does that work for BYB and Cross-Breeders and people who own and breed rare breeds that aren't currently recognised by the VCA? Or is there some kind of exemption for them I find it intriguing. No exemptions that I'm aware of, my guess is that there is probably alot of unregistered dogs in our area
  6. Council Registration/ Desexing

    Off topic Gayle but wondering if I may know you, have you always been in Toongabbie...I'm from Cowwarr

    Yes I am in one of these councils, can only register an entire dog if VCA registered
  8. Council Registration/ Desexing

    Spoke to the breeder today, papers are on their way!! SILLY ME!!! he is VCA registered so should have no problems, thanks everyone for your input!!
  9. Council Registration/ Desexing

    Yes I did see that, so am guessing to do that I need to register him with VCA or similar... Anybody know do I need papers to do this Give your breeder a call and find out if there are papers on the way (they should be giving you papers if they're a registered breeder). Otherwise the only way to put them on the VCA is as an associate, and they need to be desexed for that. My assumption would have been that I would have gotten papers too..I think I had better contact the breeder

  11. Council Registration/ Desexing

    Hmm I think I should give the council a call then to see if there is provision to pay extra to register him entire. Thanks!!
  12. Council Registration/ Desexing

    Yeah I think I am going to have to call the breeder, I dont have papers for him which I assume means he is not registered... Just checked council site and it states all dogs over 3 months must be registered...NO WAY am I desexing a 12 week old Newfoundland
  13. Council Registration/ Desexing

    I am in Victoria under Latrobe City Shire, which states that all dogs and cats must be micro-chipped and desexed before being registered
  14. Hi all, have done a few searches but really cant seem to find any answers to this one!! Hoping someone can help me... I have a 12 week old Newfoundland, he is micro-chipped and now needs to be registered with my local council, however I can not register him until he is desexed, on the breeders advice (and my own reserach) I agreed not to desex until 12 months of age... I did wonder if he is registered with the vic canine association does this then exempt me from having to desex for council registration?? but do I need papers to register with VCA??? any ideas??
  15. Bathing Puppy

    Hi all, probably a really stupid question, do I bath my my puppy in cool or warm water, as I have a newf puppy I'm guessing probably cool???
