  1. My close friend is judging Airedale Terriers at Crufts. She was to judge next year but the judge scheduled for this year has injured his knee and had to withdraw. My friend was contacted yesterday - one day before judging - and asked to fill in. Disappointed as I had planned to go next year to watch her judge but a bit late to arrange for this year! A couple of links for live stream which I hope work. https://m.youtube.com/user/OfficialCrufts http://www.ourdogs.co.uk/subindex/home.php
  2. That may well be but the OP still needs to do relevant testing for the breed and be prepared to stand by the pups if there is an issue in the future if they want to be ethical. Personally I don't think that having a litter to have " little ones of him/her" is a reason to have a litter. The OP says the bitch is BEAUTIFUL - does the OP have the qualifications to assess the bitch for suitability of breeding or is he/she talking from a pet prospective?
  3. Are you talking about terriers or collies?
  4. Like Dogsfevr I think you have answered your own question. IMO it's not the right time if you have as many doubts as you seem to have.
  5. My DIL's jack russell cross had kidney failure and refused the KD food. He was 18 at the time. He was fed on what he liked to eat which was the VIP roll and smackoos as treats. He lived for another 18 months on this diet before it became necessary to PTS.
  6. I would suggest you buy from an Australian National Kennel Council (ANKC) registered breeder who will be a member of their State ANKC affilliated body - Dogs Victoria, Dogs NSW etc.
  7. A friend has a CX5 and has a Veriocage. The problem is that the floor of the CX5 does not fold flat. the back seat needs to be down to fit the cage but because it does not fold flat the cage rocks.
  8. Suggest you contact the Schnauzer club of NSW
  9. Interesting, I changed from chicken mince to kangaroo mince and the farts stopped. Different dogs different needs I guess.
  10. I've always (44 years) fed a combination of raw and kibble together. I only feed once a day and have no issue with mixing the two. Basically it is a matter of working out what suits you and your dog. There is no right or wrong way in my opinion.
  11. Maybe harsh but if she has already bitten 3 people I would PTS. By all means check for possible cause of altered behaviour but it is obvious that there has been a problem for some time. Sometimes it is the kindest thing for everyone.
  12. Depends where in Melbourne. If outer east suits you I recommend Clematis Boarding kennels. I've left mine there for a couple of short stays and know others that regularly do so for longer. Have been very happy with them.
  13. Officially I believe it is Best in Show but most people now seem to add "Speciality" If you look at the Dogs Victoria Regulations you will see that there is no mention of Best in Speciality Show. They mention Opposite Sex awards but never mention "Speciality Show" - in part below Opposite Sex Awards Opposite Sex awards may only be awarded at Breed Specialist Shows in accordance with the following procedure: If the runner up to Best in Show is of the opposite sex to the Best in Show, that exhibit is automatically awarded Opposite Sex in Show with all other eliminations proceeding as normal. If the Runner Up to Best in Show is not of the opposite sex to the Best in Show and the Club is a single variety Breed Specialist Club then the opposite Challenge winner to the Best in Show is awarded Opposite Sex in Show with all other eliminations proceeding as normal. If the Runner Up to Best in Show is not of the opposite sex to the Best in Show and the Club is...............etc. Speciality Show is simply a tag exhibitors have added.
  14. I love Boomerang Collar tags. the best ever and you will never need to buy another tag because the ring has broken, nor listen to the jangle of tags. Well priced and although they come from the US I have always had mine arrive within a week or less.
