  1. Vaccination

    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.

  5. Puppies required

    Hi , I am based in Melbourne and after brittany puppy as a pet. I have been looking around and none available . Contacted few breeder through dogz online not available till end of this year or next year. I was after brittany due to size, endurance, active and good with people etc. Which suited our lifestyle . Since not many Brittany available are there any other similar breed (character, behavior , intelligent , size) that i can look into. That fits my criteria, i do short to mid length mountain biking, hiking wanted to take them for run etc so endurance is important. Any suggestions be really helpful, Thanks in advance
  6. Puppies required

    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.
  7. Getting a new puppy

    Hi , I am looking for a mid size active dog, looking to buy or adopt a puppy . Even if we adopt wanted to adopt small puppy. thinking of beagles, Portuguese waterdog or Australian cattle dog. Any other suggestion, something that mid size,shed less, active and friendly. Our biggest concern is, what we do when we away for work during weekdays ? Me and my partner leave house around 7 am 4, 5 days a week and home by 6. wondering if we setup right and do properly can we leave puppies at home or do we need to be there all day ? if we get slightly older puppies will that be easy or are there any place that we can drop off during the day and pick later while they are puppies. thanks !!
  8. Getting a new puppy

    Thanks all for your response. I have met few people in park with different breeds , did some online quiz . from that I have narrowed down to Brittany spaniel. They are active something I was looking for but not too big, can be outdoor/indoor dog as well. I haven't met anyone with Brittany but from reading online will suits my lifestyles. any suggestions or feedback please let me know. would like to know more . thanks again all.
  9. Getting a new puppy

    Thanks everyone for your response. @persephone I went through your response earlier and I do agree, I do love animals but I don't like to have that over attachments. Gave me a hope if I do get slightly grown up puppy (older) we should be fine. @Dogsfevr thanks again, we live a active life, we go biking not like 60 or 100 kms but just a short distance usually mtb and wanted to take dogs with us . Someone at my work told me Blue Heelers : are active and run with you when you go for a bike ride or something, very loyal and easy to train and stronger Beagles : because they are active and easy to train, heard they are hyperactive and leaving them alone is not so good. PWD : is sort of size I was looking for still active dog. I want mid size dog ( I live in suburban area) , active , friendly, good with kids and other dogs, prefer shed less and easy to train. I do want them inside but not always so need dogs that I can leave outside in yard for a period of time. what are other dog breed should I consider ? any suggestion would be good . @Tassie thanks I am planning to visit some dog show in Melbourne, I have been asking dog owners. Setting up my backyard , sides with dog on my mind . As said I maybe able to get someone to check puppy during the day for first month or two. Also thinking of getting a older puppy, would that be hard to train ?
