  1. What Is One Thing....

    I want someone who lives close to me, that is experienced in handling, to give me lessons to build my confidence. :-)
  2. Show Ring F A Q

    This is great! So much fantastic information! I've just gotten my first show dog, and am so so nervous about my first show with him! I have no idea what I'm doing, thankfully he does, and I'm sure he will be a star no matter what! But I'm furiously reading everything I can get my hands on so I'm informed and as prepared as I can be. I'm glad all this info in pinned so I can find it easily to come back.. Thank you!

    Yeah I know what you mean. But unfortunately I'm not made of an endless supply of money, so spending $300-$400 a month on dog food just isn't possible for us. I didn't buy a top of the line Dane, and I didn't buy a Dane for show or breeding. I brought one because I love and adore the breed. Plus I'd rather feed my two human children propper food and not maccas. At least I'm not starving my Dane and neglecting her like so many I see on the rescue site... Thats why I said "If you can afford it". There's not need to get cranky and defensive. It's irrelevant if you purchase a dog for show or pet - it still deserves to have good nutrition. $300-$400 a month on dog food wouldn't be the case. When you buy premimum you feed less. It's a bit hard not to get defensive when I feel like I was being picked on. And $300-$400 a month would be the case for me because I would not be feeding my GSD the same food, thus buying two different types of food. For us, Bonnie works for Skylas calcium, phosphorus and protine needs. You weren't picked on. I said "if you can afford" you chose to interpret it as a personal attack on yourself. Of course I chose to interpret as a personal attack. Saying the difference between feeding propper food and maccas. And seeing as I am the only one who said that I feed Bonnie, and you likened Bonnie to maccas , I kinda took that to heart. So forgive me for being sensitive. Ah just forget it. Obviously my maccas eating, poorly bred, incorrectly marked dog and I aren't right for here... Perhaps in years to come when I have a perfect "breed standard" dog I'll be welcomed.

    Awwww!! What a cutie!! I feed my 6 month old Dane Bonnie Working Dog dry food. I did start her on eukanuba large puppy, but I couldn't keep forking out $100 a fortnight for her food and $100 a fortnight for my other dog (GSD cross) food. So they are both on Bonnie now. My girl is growing nice and slow and straight. I don't have insurance for her yet, and I'm still not sure if I will. But we were looking at Bow Wow Meow, they looked pretty good.

    Thought I'd have a go at a distance sit stay with the puppies. Thinking there is no way they would. So I called out from the kitchen window for them to sit and wait. Walked away for a full minute, poked my head back out the window and they were both still waiting! Awwww!!

    Those darn holes just appearing out of no where! Fortunately I've found my two keeping a very very close eye and paw on the holes, so I'm sure the cause will be found soon lol

    Poor Skyla can't work out how this hole got here...

    The next day the swelling had gone down, but I took her in anyway and showed the vet the photos. He couldn't see any cuts or anything in her mouth and no sign of infection. He was completely stumped. He took some blood though just to be sure and said to bring her straight in if it happens again. So I don't know. He said she could have bitten her lips during the vomiting but then couldn't see any sign of injury... :-/ possibly a bug bite, but it was odd for it to be the same on both sides. So I'll wait for the results of the blood work and keep harassing her everyday to check her mouth lol.

    :-( poor baby. I was kida hoping I'd come back here and see everyone laughing saying it was normal. Poor baby. They are even size on each size which is why I'm thrown by it. I'll make an appointment in the morning. She is still happy an bouncy and keen on her food. Fingers crossed she is just going to have big chops when she is a big girl.

    Hey everyone. I just noticed something about Skyla, and I'm not sure if it's a Dane thing or not. Last night I went out to feed her and noticed a huge vomit of her that must have been her breakfast. I didn't think anything of it because she woofed her breakfast down yesterday morning. She ate her tea fine last night and breakfast fine again this morning. I just went out to give the dogs a treat ad found another vomit. Then I noticed that Skylas bottom lips are all swollen and hard. Like there are two rocks in there or something. She also had trouble eating we treat. I have a photo, but don't know if you can tell well what I'm talking about. I don't know of she is suppose to naturally have these huge lips or not.
