  1. It is currently very hot due to summer and today in particular my dog had been panting like crazy, breathing very loud and his heart is racing any tips on how to cool him down quick?
  2. Help!

    Hi everyone thanks for the advice. We took him to the vet and she said he had a mild paw infection and said to clean his foot in water with salt and then gave us a cream to put on. Unfortunately it has been 5 days since we went to the vet and still hasn’t recovered as he keeps licking his paws and pulling his paws away when we try to touch them. Maybe I will try some apple cider vinger and distilled water
  3. Help!

    Hi everyone, My 1.5 year old cavalier x poodle got a bit dirty/muddy after he was outside in the garden, once i brought him in i gave him a bath. That night he was constantly licking his two front paws. Today he continued and when i went to touch his paws to have a look he refused to let me even touch them i tried again later but he still yanked his paws away and jumped out of my arms. Does anyone know what might be wrong?
  4. Help!

    We have a 1 and a half year old cavalier x poodle who is generally quite calm and well behaved however he has a few behavioural problems. Any suggestions would be helpful: 1) After being outside when he decides he wants to come back in he scratches continuously on the back door. Are there any other ways we can train him to give us a different signal that he wants to come back in?? As this scratching on the door is causing damage. 2) He occasionally does naughty things. For example the other day we had furniture delivered in flat packages and they were left outside as they were not being installed for 2 days. And we went outside to find he had chewed through the cardboard packaging and actually chewed the corner of a wardrobe piece off. I am aware that he probably didnt know he was doing anything wrong. But how can we train him to learn not to touch other things. 3) Any advice on preventing him from nagging for food while we are eating. He is usually very good however every now and then he does something naughty. Any suggestions would be much appreciated! We have already had 2 trainers come in and havent seem to made much progress
  5. Hi, my cavilier x poodle called Fudge is quite a shy dog and around other humans and animals he never barks or gets aggressive in any way. However our next door neighbor has a dog and if Fudge hears him do anything on the other side of the fence whether it be the neighbors dog barking he will sprint and jump at the fence and start growling. My main concern though is he sometimes hits his body up against the fence really hard and I am worried he will injury himself. As he sprints about 50m full pace and then jumps as high up the fence as possible. Any ideas on how to solve??

    No we don't have a cat or another dog so not sure how it could have happened.

    Once it got cleared up a bit we were able to get a better look. Its a lot worse than I thought so hopefully he recovers quick!
  8. Dog Injured

    Hi everyone thank you all for asking how he's going. We took him to the vet this morning and it was a ruptured abscess so the vet drained it and has given him antibiotics and some pain relief and a cone to stop him licking it. We are taking him back on Monday for a check up so hopefully it will close naturally otherwise it will require stitches.
  9. Dog Injured

    I am quite certain it happened last night because he spent a lot of time wondering around the back yard but I have no idea what would have caused the cut. Thanks for the advice will take him to the vet tomorrow and try and clean it up a bit tonight.

  11. Dog Injured

    Hi, I went to pick up my dog this morning and he let out a little squeal and I noticed he had some sort of cut. Its a little bit messy with blood so I can't tell if there is a cut or how deep it is but he has been licking it and I am worried it could turn into an infection. Does anyone have any idea what it is, how we can treat it because I will try get him to the vet tomorrow if it seems to be getting no better. Any advice on cleaning wounds? We have no idea how it happened either.
  12. Dog Food Suggestions

    I am considering switching to Black Hawk as I have heard it is really good quality and it seems to be reasonably priced.

    Pappillion Kisses its $50 for 3kg (thats the cheapest I have found so far) online in store its even more expensive.
  14. Dog Food Suggestions

    Hi Everyone, My cavalier cross poodle is currently eating Royal Canin food but it is $50 for 3kg which I am finding it to be quite expensive considering we go through around 1 bag per month. Does anyone have any recommendations on high quality dog food which isn't too expensive??
  15. Dog keeps taking things off tables

    Yes we did and she helped us learn to correct some other issues we where having, but we can't continue to keep having one on one trainers coming in so I was wondering if anyone on here had any advice for how we could correct his counter surfing.
