Total Recall

I wanted to be able to teach Soleil and Boji a rock solid recall so they could have some free running time when they're out and about. So, I ordered the book Total recall, published by Quiller, and it takes you through every stage of teaching a reliable recall, Not just at home where there's no dist...

Re: Behaviour

Soleil was bad for jumping up at people in the street and visitors who come to the house :roll: Dogs that jump up, need to be taught an alternative, acceptable way to behave to greet people. The reason they jump is so they can reach our faces. When they greet another doggy friend, they tend to lick ...

Re: Considering feeding raw food...

Thank you for all your opinions and advice. Personally I feel more comfortable feeding a human grade food simply because I know the meat would be high quality and not from diseased animals. Bid, I read the link you posted and found it interesting and helpful so thank you for that. I think I'm going ...

Re: New here and need help

Hello and welcome to the forum! :D I'm sure you'll have lots of fun with your new baby, getting to know each other. The problem with wind...if you've fed him the same diet as he was having with his breeder then it could simply be down to stress...it's a big thing for a lil puppy going to his new hom...

Considering feeding raw food...

I've been thinking about this for a while and I really like the sound of a more natural diet for my dogs along with the health benefits it brings. However, Mum was talking to one of the vets at the surgery where we go and she said that there's an increased risk of getting worms from feeding a raw fo...

Re: I feel like I've let her down...

Poor Sandy :( what an awful thing for her to go through and for you to witness. Dogs do have such amazing abilities to bounce back after something bad has happened though and the important thing now is for you to stay confident when other dogs are around Sandy. Soleil and Boji send big doodle licks ...

Sadly some people just think they're above rules. But people like them give ALL dog owners a bad name :evil:
