  1. Icelandic Sheepdog. Like Norwegian Buhunds. One Australian breeder in Vic.
  2. We have a few around here as well. Nice dogs. Don't require as much grooming as an Airedale because of their hard wiry coat.
  3. I used Blackhawk and Ivory Coat on & off. When the company changed ownership i stopped. It wasn't as good and it wasn't an Australian Company anymore.
  4. I've done that and cancelled the appts for the vaccines.
  5. An Irish Terrier with a hard coat. They don't have huge beards and would definitely be able to keep up with the exercise etc
  6. What about a Belgian Laekenois . Hardly any shedding. Minimal grooming. Strong & sturdy.
  7. Do they use the L2 vaccine here or the L4?
  8. Has anyone had or heard of adverse side effects from the Leptospirosis vaccine. Apparently there is an L2 vaccine, an L3 and L4 vaccine. I have read that the L4 vaccine has caused side effects in the UK. Lepto 2 covers 2 Serovars & Lepto 4 covers 4 Serovars. Lepto 3 is not available in the UK apparently. Apparently the vaccine does not prevent dogs from getting Leptospirosis and is meant to lessen the severity of the disease. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of this vaccine. I will ask my vet at my next consult but would appreciate any further info Dolers may have in relation to the vaccine and the disease.

  10. Pleased to hear this update. We all have bad days as we get older. Dogs as well as humans.
  11. Agree with the dog walker option. Or Doggy Day Care if there aren't too many excitable pups there. Is she taking any natural supplements or medication for her hip and back issues. There are a lot of people working from home still. Maybe one of your neighbours who needs the exercise or who loves dogs. Much easier to walk an older quieter dog than a younger energetic one.
  12. What about the people who persist in calling all dogs puppies. Even when the dogs are 50-60kgs they tell their children the dogs are "puppies".

  14. I was referring to the 2nd last para of the post re the dogs health.
  15. Sorry to hear about your dog. Just curious was your dog on MR or LR. And are you able to tell us what breed your dog was. I have met dogs in my local park 6 mths old with elbow and hip dysplasia. Usually Labradors or Golden Retrievers. Dogs today seem to get more problems than the dogs we had as kids.
  16. Applaws dry food is not too expensive and can be bought in some supermarkets. I have used Applaws on occasion and the dogs seem to like it.
  17. Does the breeder charge extra to change to MR from LR if the purchaser bought pet only and didn't pay for show quality in the first place.
  18. Do the 2 large boned breed dogs include an Irish Wolfhound as one of the 2.
  19. What do " the latest cross of 2 large boned breeds said to be a new breed " consist of? What are the 2 large boned breeds/
  20. I had 3 dogs on Mains sold as and paid for as show quality. These 3 all from different breeders should have been on LR. Now I purchase a show quality dog for show quality price and get it on LR.

  22. Pls ignore last sentence in above post. Sorry about that.
  23. https://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/real-life/news-life/dads-heartbreaking-message-to-his-toddler-killed-by-family-dog/news-story/a2b13719a3c8ca38ecf1db11cedbd1a2 This is very sad. The dog had only become part of the family a week before this incident. Police are trying to locate the previous owner. First episode aired last night.
