  1. Socialising a dog - daycare?

    My dogs don’t socialise much with other dogs except when in passing on their walk. They are very calm and that’s how I like it.. Occasionally they will stop and say hi to a dog but I can read their body language pretty well.

    Thank you

    Thank you for the link
  4. British bulldog x American staffy

    In summer I would never leave a dog outside longer than the time it takes to do it’s business... but that’s just me.Today in Adelaide it’s 39 degrees and my dogs are happily snoozing next to me under the aircon. The problem with cross breeds is you don’t know which traits it will mostly have until it’s a bit older... so all you can do it wait and see.
  5. Grass seed again!

    Thanks for the tip about dryers! I never thought to use one Lacey is a CKCS and apart from trimming her feet, ears etc I leave her coat as it is.
  6. Grass seed again!

    I need some ideas because I’m at my wits end In the last 3 weeks I have had Lacey at the emergency vet twice because of a grass seed.. one in her ear that pierced her ear drum and then today she was back there again with a grass seed in her foot . I check both of my dogs 2-3 times a DAY and yet the little b******s are still getting in , I just don’t know what to do. Currently Lacey is wearing a snood when she is outside , but now I am thinking of getting her some socks to wear... I feel like wrapping her in bubble wrap! I keep my grass short and use a catcher but that hasn’t worked. If anyone has any other ideas I would love to hear them
  7. I was feeding my 2 dogs BH grain free salmon and they seemed to thrive on it for a while and then I started a new bag and bam! I had to put plastic sheeting on my flooring because the diarrhoea was so bad it was just coming out on it’s own free will :/ it was horrible. Luckily the company I bought it from took it back ... now I feed them TOTW which they love. This happened about 2-3 years ago ... but I’m not sure what happened to the formula back then.
  8. Toilet Training

    I agree with Dogs and RP..... When I got my CKCS I had her trained fairly quickly, sometimes just like human babies some take longer than others.. I just got lucky. I hadn’t had a puppy for a few years before I got Lacey so I just winged it... I only had one exit to the backyard so fairly quickly she knew where to go when she wanted to go out.. I also gave her plenty of praise after she went , possibly went too overboard haha but she loved the attention and learnt quickly. I agree that you need to go back to basics.. good luck

  11. Which kibble do you feed?

    I feed my dogs Taste of the Wild... they love this one, I rotate the flavours for variety.
  12. Pet Insurance - latest opinions please?

    I have a pet savings account ...... Lacey had a abscess on one of her anal glands over the weekend (typical) and it cost me just over $200 ... I could have waited until today but she has trouble expressing her glands so I wanted it done ASAP . I have never had pet insurance and I have had pets all my life ... I guess it’s like comparing oranges to lemons.
  13. The euthanasia process

    Thanks penrithabby for starting this post .... my Kelpie is 13 now and starting to show her age, and it’s been on my mind a lot lately how I will go about it.... she definitely shows me everyday that she is still a crazy puppy so she has a ways to go before that happens but it’s always great to plan these things. I will start enquiring soon who does this service around where I live.
  14. Taste of the wild dog food

    I feed my two dogs TotW and they are doing very well on it ... my 13 year old has a coat that gleams.
