  1. @DogsfevrThanks he is French brittany. I think they are slightly smaller in size n stature.
  2. Thanks @Tassie , yes he is very active and bright, my concern was his body fat . If that's how he should be I am happy
  3. @DogsfevrYes he has long legs and very fast.. keeps running will not stop. What is conformation?
  4. Thanks @Rebanne I will do that. Thanks for your advice
  5. Thanks. He is very energetic and active ,eats anything not a fussy eater. I gave him home made food and he would poo 5-6 times a day i felt he has a high metabolism. To gain weight i am feeding him 3 times kibbles two times and meat rice etc during the afternoon. He doesn't look unhealthy only leaner maybe that's how he is :).
  6. Ribs are not visible but when u run your palm across u can feel that. Brittany tend to be long leg n masculine side. Yes he has been desexed
  7. Thanks everyone, this is pic took this afternoon. Should I be worried.
  8. @DogsAndTheMobThanks, I tried almost everything. I have been giving home this premium kibble locally made said high in protein and fat. During day time I feed him cut piece,meat and rice with oil sometime organs it hasn't helped much. He look muscular , highly energetic but not much reserved fat or on chubby side. Giving him all wormer on a regular basis as well. I feel he just have a high metabolism. He gets decent exercise take him to dog park often he does just sprint all around the park as he doesn't like playing with dogs much. He is turning 15 months tomorrow. Should I be doing anything differently? Thank you again for your response
  9. @Rebanne thanks he is still in puppy food, do u think should I keep continuing
  10. I have a male Brittany he is almost 15 month old and weigh 13.7kg. I started with raw and wet food and eventually end up feeding him locally made Kibble two times a day since he was 12 month old because I felt kibble may help him gain weight on top i feed him raw food, meat or rice during the day time. I give him kibble more than recommended. However he looks skinny and not gaining much weight. He eats anything and highly active and fit but on skinny side. He poops 4 plus times a day as well drink lots of water I don't know if that's a reason he is not gaining weight.Should I be worried as I would like him to add 1kg extra. Should I be worried or is this normal ?
  11. Finally brought in a brittany puppy few weeks ago from the register breeder in Melbourne. Loving it :). It had it first vaccinations at 6 through breeder and second vaccinations in 10 weeks , last week. Vet told me i can only have final one 6 weeks later at 16. But i read 4 weeks apart so should be at 14. Since puppy schools are mostly closed and or not available till late july feel like i am missing out on dog socialization. So if i can have his shot at 14 i be able to take him out earlier . Just wondering if it is ok to vaccinate at 14 or should i wait till 16 ? So where can i take him as he already had his second shot ? Thanks all in advance for your replies every one has been really helpful and got useful information always.
  12. Thanks @sandgrubber been trying for a while, none available . Some of those breeder even not taking a waiting list
  13. I have been actively looking for a mid size or alarge size dog(pup) . Beagle, irish setter, cocker spaniel, american spaniel ,welsh terrier, lab or a golden retriever pup. Based in melbourne, ready to pick up anytime soon, happy to drive or pay for a delivery. If anyone do have one or about to have one please let me know asap Thanks
  14. Thank @Tassie and @persephone appreciate a lot. i have been researching and going through those videos to prepare myself . Yes my wife is home and not working at the moment so when i am busy she will be looking after the dog :). Absolutely will need plenty of attention.
  15. Thank you everyone for your response . I could manage to pick one litter from registered breeder in Melbourne. Went and checked out both parents and its siblings. Healthy and well taken care. Picking up in 4 weeks. Cant wait to have him. I was researching and setting up for 1.5 yr it was not just purchased out of covid boredom. It was a right time as i will be WFH next 3 months atleast. Thankyou all. Any suggestion on bringing new puppies please do let me know.
