  1. I had a very hard time originally trying to find them but eventually found them at a butcher in an Asian shopping centre and the later found duck feet at a similar place. Good luck though, they are worth the struggle!
  2. Have you had a look in the Asian grocers?
  3. Rawfeeding Rebels on Facebook is also an awesome group. Welcome to the wonderful world of raw feeding :)
  4. If your after some good raw feeding advice there are a few Facebook groups that are pretty awesome. My favorite is Rawfeeding Rebels, they are some very nice helpful people :)
  5. Just letting anyone in the Brisbane/Gold Coast area know about a butcher I went to on the weekend that has great variety. It's called Hauffs Butchery at Sunnybank. I may have gone a little overboard!
  6. Also was reading an article today about the dangers of feeding too much bone. Article said that it can throw out the calcium/phosphorus levels and can increase chances of things such as hip dysphasia etc. Not sure if it is all true and can't find the article again to add here but something you could google I suppose :)
  7. This might help with your bone content queries :)
  8. Red Fox I saw that one a few days ago!! So want to make it for my boy but don't feed kibble... Might have to put his treats in it instead!!
  9. Haven't read through all the other comments so sorry if I am repeating suggestions but I had the wobbler and same problem, he worked it out to fast! I then moved to one I bought off eBay called a boredom buster which worked really well (once I worked out how to fill it! I got the large because I sometimes feed large breed kibble. We also have a few Nina Ottoson food puzzles which are great seeing as I have a border collie and the mental stimulation is fantastic. I also have the green interactive dog feeder bowl that I bought off eBay which is fantastic and takes ages if I spread it around the feeder. Other then that I sometimes just take the lid off a Gatorade bottle and throw his food in that and if I'm running late a good scatter feed in the back yard has to suffice!!
  10. Should add that I also have a working breed and while we do go to obedience, if we miss a week then training at home as well as his food puzzles and his walks and games of tug keep his mind stimulated enough. If that keeps a BC happy I'm sure it will keep a pug happy :)
  11. Vets do give puppies (and all dogs for that matter) canine cough vaccinations. If you look at your puppy vaccinations the C3 is the parvo etc and the C5 is the bordetella and canine cough booster. The immunity last for 12 months apparently but my girl got canine cough even after vaccinating so I don't bother with it anymore. Is there another club you can go to as I know of plenty of clubs that accept titre tests?
  12. I agree also that feeding raw will be more beneficial then feeding cooked as cooking it pretty much destroys anything useful in the meat and dogs do not have the digestive system for digesting grains and such, they are carnivores after all!!! It is not expansive and I feed a border collie and a pointer. My border had lots of issues on kibble so made the decision to move to raw and I will never look back. No more upset tummies and no more skin issues. I highly recommend a FB page called raw feeding rebels if you would like some more info and some friendly advise. Good luck with whatever you choose :)
  13. Anyone on the Gold Coast or Brisbane area know where I could find some chicken feet? I found some at an Asian grocer a while ago but can't find any now!
  14. Thank you mumo4girls! I have done an order and am very excited to try some of the green tripe!!!! Or at least Jarvis is :)
  15. Where abouts are you? I am on the Gold Coast and have ordered fresh green tripe from a place called Instincto.com.au so hopefully by next week I will be able to tell you what the hype is all about. I mainly feed liver and kidney as my main offal meats as they are easiest to obtain however my boy also doesn't like them to much so I wait her dehydrate, flash fry them or smother with sardines!!!
  16. Has anyone tried OrganicPaws minces? I'm just starting my boy on raw and he HATES the barf for some reason. I believe it is all the added stuff. Also does anyone know where I can get roo tail (preferably whole tails) on the Gold Coast or where I can order some from?
  17. I don't think I would be making her treats any less special. If you want her to work for her treats and work hard they need to be of high value! I agree with the leaving the food down only for short periods. Worked with my girl and she will now eat anything I give her :)
  18. I have the advance too and it will only fit in the wobbler haha and takes her quite some time but that's a good thing!!! All her other toys I have to use a tiny amount of my puppy biscuits or they get stuck haha
  19. Hey there, I am new to this thread and I have read through quite a few posts but I am wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction for getting into tracking. I live on the Gold Coast QLD and really want to get into it with my GWP but have no idea where to start. Any information would be greatly appreciated!!
  20. I agree, when it's so easy to do a quick brush each night while watching tv or sitting in bed its so frustrating to see the state some dogs come in in
  21. Thank you so much for this thread guys, I am getting a BC puppy soon hopefully of I can convince the bf! I will definitely be looking into some of these brushes. I also work in boarding and the amount of BC's that come in with knotted matted coats is horrible
  22. They sure can. Coughing, running nose, lethargic and just plain flat. This is usually within the first 10 days though
  23. I have been taking it myself and I plan to start with my horses and dogs as soon as I get home. Hopefully it darkens up their coats and stops their coats being dry and brittle in winter!
  24. I guess it depends on each individual dog. I fed advance to my lab girl and she was healthy and shiny and never had the really doggy smell. Changed her over to a different brand for a short time but her coat dulled and her skin turned flakey so I changed her back and never had a problem ever again. Another thing to consider is just like people can be allergic to some foods so can dogs and this can affect them with skin issues and the like. You can get you dog allergy tested and then only feed what agrees with your dogs body. I know I will definitely be doing this for my next pup so that I don't have to do so much guessing!
