  1. I've just started agility with my puppy (2 weeks ago). As far as the tunnel is concered, the ducting is a great idea. My boyfriend installed our aircon only a few months ago and had some left. I've been using that and I have to say it works a bit too well. After about 2 minutes she decided that she loves going through it and my problem now is teaching her to go through ONLY when I ask her. You have to tape up the ends well as you don't want him/her to get to the insulation. My jumps & weavers aren't as impressive as all of yours - a piece of pvc pipe on two plastic pots and bamboo stakes
  2. Ha ha I was actually saying that I give my older HORSE a cup of apple cider vinegar and it works a treat. My mini poodle has the cartrophen (sp?) injections and they work - have never tried apple cidar vinegar on her.
  3. We have a 18yo mini poodle who can get quite stiff in winter. We have been getting the injections for her for the last 5 years or something like that. Usually she just has the course just prior to the cold months and it lasts through the winter. If she's having a bad year then I think we have her done again further into winter too. I don't know if it works for dogs but my older horse gets arthritis and gets a bit stiff in winter. I give him a cup of apple cider vinigar in his dinner each day and it works like a miracle! He's like a new horse!
  4. When we only had the mini (poodle) it was the laundry tub. Now with a standard as well its usually the bath (sometimes the shower with either me or my mum). The standard isn't a fan of water and so you have to carry the lump usually from up stairs down to the bathroom but then she's a perfect little angel once she's in there. Usually wash the standard first - makes it seem like the mini takes no time. Oh and a hair dry afterwards if its not summer.
