  1. My dogs were bred with care and attention to temperament and health. Their parents weren't just shoved together to make pondscum some money in the lead up to Christmas.
  2. Whoa there, Gruf. You're mixing the sensible with logic. :laugh: I don't disagree that a dog's worth should be judged to some extent on its function but with the oodly dogs, function is an unknown. They can't be claimed to be hypoallergenic, they can't be claimed to be non-shedding, they can't be claimed to be good family pets, and really, they can't be claimed to be anything because it's all rolls of the dice. Comparing an oodly dog to.. a greyhound: The greyhound will be a big dog, probably weighing between 25-35kg. It will have a smooth, short coat that sheds fairly minimally. It will
  3. Purebred dog breeders are regulated by their state domestic animals legislation and the relevant code of practice, something the Victorian agricultural minister, Jaala Pulford, doesn't seem to understand or at least, won't acknowledge. Her picking at Dogs Vic members in the press and at the inquiry seems to indicate an agenda beyond getting rid of puppyfarms. Victorian breeders who are Vic dogs members and who have less than 10 dogs don't have to follow the code of practice for breeding dogs because they currently have an exemption. Other breeders in Victoria who have more than 3 dogs ha
  4. Above from Shel's blog. So why isn't rescue regulated? Does it not fall under state jurisdictional codes of practice?
  5. I thought AWDRI (?) was a fairly decent rescue with a good reputation. Seems not?

  7. I don't use Rescue Remedy for my dog anymore. I use Brauer's Calm tablets. I find me more effective over a period of time.

  9. Either a purebred breeder who is complicit or who is lied to. I know one of the latter, someone who rang me in great distress on finding out about their dog.
  10. As someone with breeds that don't shed and one that gets mistaken for an oodle most of the time, it amazes me that people fall for the non-shedding aspect of oodledom. I have met a number of people with oodles recently whose dogs shed more than Labradors in general. They always seem so puzzled about it.
  11. And it's very clear OL and AA (and the RSPCA to some extent) have very fixed ideas, will not change their minds, and cannot understand a reasoned, logical point of view. Breeders are all bad no matter what. That's it. That's their position.
  12. Registered breeders cannot argue restriction of trade in one breath and argue they should not be treated like a commercial enterprise in the next. the pet shops can in spades pretty rich to tell us that selling a puppy bred by a breeder will have poor outcome for the puppy and the buyer. BUT its fine for rescue pups and dogs? thats like telling Harvey Norman you can only stock Westinghouse and no other brand, THAT certainly is restriction of trade Then feel free to argue that to the politicians. Given one of the objections to this Bill's amendments is Dogs Vic's members are not a bu

  14. Has Pulford had a bad experience with a Dogs Vic breeder, I wonder?
  15. Pulford maligned Dogs Vic breeders today as not being up to scratch, apparently. Indicates she really has it in for them.
  16. with a bit of luck by the time it happens there will be so few dogs and puppies of any breed available anyone who really wants a dog but cant find one will snap them up. as for if the vic govt get their planned changes though that will be sooner than you can possibly imagine I hope that isn't the case but if it did as you said would be good for the Greys maybe they're not everyone's cup of tea. There won't be any greys. Will that make you finally happy? If there is no dog breeding at all? Cos that's what's happening in Victoria right now. I have no time for people who cannot see past t
  17. The comments by Animals Australia and by proxy Oscar's law believe they were sufficiently consulted though. Having read through the transcripts and comments on Oscar's law fb page I find it hard to work out which is right. On the transcripts they (ol) are saying they weren't consulted officially and on the fb page they are saying they were in someway part of the consultation process. They also have no costings or information regarding how many people will be needed to enforce the new legislation and they also have no idea about how many people it will affect, but they still want to push it

  19. Shows OL has very little understanding of ... well, anything really.
  20. 'Without understanding the full implications'. Thanks for being so utterly patronising. i understand you well enough to realise that you cannot make any argument without devolving into academic claptrap. I understand the implications. I understand what you wrote. I did not write the same thing as you. I pointed out your argument is twaddle.
  21. Maddy if you are so sure that some know that some others are drowning puppies ,how do you think they know this and how many breeders that you know drown puppies have you reported? You cant just rock up and say I think they are routinely drowning puppies and its not something that a breeder brags about. You can say that s not that sire and its easily proven via DNA so if you know its happened then have you reported it ?.How do you know someone else is aware of it or that its not just gossip? If you know these things and dont report them then why are you less guilty of someone else who you thi
