  1. im sure that it'll be busy initially as its kind of out of the way from everything else.
  2. Ive been checking regularly as I drive past, but the new fenced off lead area at Speeds Point is still not open. I had been hoping it was going to be open by now. They have been working on levelling out the field and the area has been completely re-grassed. There's a covered seating area now plus other benches and water fountains, but there is no sign of any agility equipment like I thought (or read?) there might be. Oh well, will keep checking but it looks like this might be something completed in the new year. By the way, the Speers Point upgrade looks amazing.
  3. Anyone been to check out the new fenced dog park in Speers Point? I drove past and it looks like it might be open for use. Update: Posted too soon. Not open yet. Drove past yesterday and had seen the fence was up but taking a look today they are still working in the fenced off area. Anyone know when it is supposed to be open? Here's a link to the area showing the dog park for those who are unsure where it is located.
  4. I wondered if Cane Corso could be added back in again please. It looks like it may have been a while back but is no longer available. Thanks.
  5. Highly recommend a Miele with a power head. Makes easy work of my cat and dog fur.
  6. I'll be checking them out this week when I am out that way. Thanks. Lots of good suggestions so I'm sure I'll be able to reduce the cost and staying raw for the most part. I'll see what can find this week from the suggestions that have been made.
  7. So I gave the SKD200 Kangaroo & Potatoe a try this morning and there were zero issues with him taking to it. Ate it all immediately. Slobber everywhere.
  8. I do keep a small bag handy on the odd occasion that I have forgotten to make up a raw meal or have run out and need to head out the door quickly. I would need to check how much is in a big bag of kibble and compare against how much it costs me to feed raw which at the moment is about $8 per day.
  9. From a quick calculation based on Prime 100 SPD or SKD being approx $12 per roll I would save $50 a month. So not a bad saving. If I can get a better bulk price for raw I will try and go that way first.
  10. I have been looking for some where local to buy raw so Ill have to give them a bell. Thank you.
  11. Thanks for the feedback. From what I could tell it seemed to be a more premium roll compared to the standard supermarket stuff. I won't be relying on what ever I supplement as a complete diet, so maybe I could alternate with this. My boy eats 1.2kg per day so I would move through a roll pretty quickly.
  12. Thanks I hadn't checked the thread in a while. When I last posted in there I didn't get a response and looking in the mean time hadn't come up with anything.
  13. With Beef it's mince and heart. With chicken it's mince, kidneys, necks and wings. With both I'm adding steamed veggies, egg, coconut oil, VANs Health Boost and Omega Blend. The meat is all Coles bought as I haven't been able to locate where to buy bulk. I know I could save there if I can find somewhere get bulk.
  14. I bought a freezer with the intention of buying in bulk. Unfortunately I have not been able to locate anywhere local where I can buy bulk. I'm in Newcastle so if anyone has any idea I am open to it. Thanks for the response on Prime 100. I thought of it as a possible option to reduce the overall cost with out being too bad.
  15. I alternate between beef and chicken. Have tried Kangaroo previously but he never really took to it.
  16. Hi everyone, just need a bit of advice for my boy who is currently on a raw diet. I won't bore you with the details, but we are moving to a single income household for the next 6 months and I would like to reduce his food bill. My first thought is to reduce his twice daily raw meals to once a day and then supplement with kibble or something else. Does anyone have thoughts on Prime 100 range of dog rolls? Open to suggestions on how I could do this. Thanks for your help.
  17. Very sorry to hear. This is always a tough time to get through.
  18. Found an old pic of my first girl with her litter mates. She's the brindle on the far left. This was taken in 1998, she passed in 2007. She was the best.
  19. Thats cool. Point Erin used to be my local swimming pool when I lived in Ponsonby.
  20. I'm in Warners Bay. Spend a lot of my time around the esplanade between Elebana and Speers Point walking the dog on lead. Off lead at Croudace Bay, Hams Beach and Red Head Beach. My boys pretty big and a little intimidating so most other dog owners tend to stay away or recall their dogs when they see us coming. He's a big softy though and is dog friendly, he either ignores or gets super excited and wants to play.
  21. I tried one to see if my boy would actually chew on it. I bought him a bag of Greenies and he wasn't even interested in them. The Oravet gets very slimy and sticky and his poo was green the next day, but he seemed to enjoy chewing it at the time. At least he ate it compared to the Greenies. Not planning to rush out and buy a whole bunch of them though.
  22. I feed the same amount of raw twice daily, morning and evening. When I re-homed my boy he was food aggressive and the increased amount of food and regular feeding has stopped that. He was a little under weight and was only being fed one meal a day. He is 5kg heavier, looking healthy and I can do as I wish with his food while he is eating.
  23. Not sure if this is the right place to put this. Sad to hear that these poor people have placed their trust in a kennel to take care of their dogs only to find out they have died. By the sounds of it all could have been prevented. http://www.theherald.com.au/story/4384079/anger-at-three-kennel-tragedies/ http://www.theherald.com.au/story/4379842/your-dogs-dead-fury-over-death-at-kennel/
