  1. did that, she could'nt figure out why it wouldn't work, still glitches in the system she said. took my number for an expert to call but still waiting Same here and to be honest I dont have the time I've spent so far in trying to make it work . Id rather simply fill out the change of owners forms for my puppies ,send it in to council and let them do the job. Ill have another look in a little while to see if its any easier but Im not up for spending this much time and energy on simply doing councils job for them until its all sorted. I feel like you do and I've given up.
  2. May be a strange question...do you think that those highly competative in your sport could potentially be doing exactly the same as they do in Greyhound racing to improve performance? Unlikely. My bitch scored 2nd in the Sight Hounds last time she ran. She stays fit, with road work, free runs, slip runs, on the flirt pole and behind our own machine. For the record I have also raced Greyhounds and did not partake in live baiting and swabbed clean when tested.
  3. Animal rights and the RSPCA are all about obtaining footage and information to further their own agenda, as opposed to actually helping an animal.
  4. The warehousing of dogs in not uncommon. Many rescues are kept in kennels and their needs are not met. There was the case of the bouncing Whippets a few years ago, that were warehoused despite offers to foster them and provide them with some necessary life skills, manners and asses them in a home environment.
  5. about the only thing I could see was the "cramped cages". The majority of the dogs were fat. Those cages indoors all had what appeared to be clean newspaper, some of it a bit shredded but otherwise looked fresh. Looked like faeces in the outdoor runs. Having them piled in like that is reason enough to remove them from the premises but it didn't look filthy. Every time I see this happen to a registered breeder I think back to what those poor Collie people went through and it casts doubt in my mind if it's real, partly real or a Debra Tranter special
  6. If a NSW breeder The breeder is responsible for chipping the puppy and registering the litter with Dogs NSW The breeder is responsible for ensuring a change of ownership (microchip c3a) form is completed by the buyer and the breeder submits it to their council. The breeder is responsible for signing the back of the pedigree and forwarding the pedigree papers on to the buyer The buyer is then responsible for registering the puppy with their local council with the confirmation of transfer arrives from the breeders local council. It's a white a4 piece of paper. The buyer is responsible for transferring the puppy into their name with Dogs NSW by submitting the pedigree and appropriate fee to dogs nsw Sounds like the breeder has done all they need to .
  7. If he's overshot the jaw may correct itself as the bottom jaw is the last to develop. If he's undershot ( the bottom jaw is longer than the top ) then there is no chance it will correct. Is he under of over ?
  8. I've had my Chi attacked in the back yard by Currawong's. There is large group of them that live behind us in the trees and they come and steal the pups chicken wings and food any chance they get. My dog was lucky I was home to rescue him. They probably couldn't have carried him away but could have killed him (2kg's of dog)
  9. Thanks it has been. So much goes on behind the scenes with a fledgling sport and club. The Committee is an awesome one and are all very good at what they do.
  10. Training Dates have been announced ... The first one is 17 April in Yass NSW , followed by 1 May in Sydney
  11. I don't wean as such, I introduce solids when the pups are ready (or the bitch does it for me). I provide them with a water bowl and let the bitch decide when she'd had enough. I find that they are sometimes still feeding the pups as they are leaving home but it's not an issue as the pups are eating and drinking on their own. Weaning is not a race to see who can get their pups off the bitch the earliest.
  12. I get reminders for vaccinations too. I;ve told them to turn off the function and save themselves the $ it costs them each time they do.
  13. Apologies in advance Troy if not allowed For those interested in Lure Coursing, the New South Wales Lure Coursing Association INC is officially up and running (Since September 2015) Details about the sport and the club can be found on our Facebook page. The trails and training days are listed in "events" and there is an April training day to be added.

  14. Looks like she's going to pull a 3am-er :)
  15. Plenty of dogs are shown with war wounds of one kind or another. Don't dwell on the incident and continue on with your training, your pup doesn't need to meet and greet other dogs. Find some people with stable dogs that you can go for short walks with at shows. Enter sweepstakes where he will have plenty of time to stand around in the ring and be surrounded by puppies (these are usually non threatening).
  16. Use the best dog you can find in terms of type, temperament , structure and soundness , that is clear of L2-HGA & HC and does not have any blue behind it.
  17. Never had an issue with it, it's a valuable tool to have when whelping a litter and your vet is not available immediately. Like anything there are risks and it certainly should not be used by the inexperienced and without vet guidance.
  18. Most breeders I know work, so maybe try between 7.30 and 8.30pm, you are most likely to catch those that work normal hours.
  19. Whippets and I like how you just picked a date somewhere in the middle :laugh: that is pretty much what I've done
  20. Looks promising for us to be added to the list. Somewhere between the 16th and the 23rd Feb :)
  21. Technically the service certificate is supposed to be signed at the time of the mating. No one uses my dogs at stud without paying the service fee at the time of mating, at which point I'll sign the service cert and hand it over. Contract states that if your bitch fails to whelp one live pup, I will refund the service fee (less 20% for my time and costs) upon return of the service certificate. Might sound tough , but stud dogs owners are used and abused the world over and this puts a stop to that.
