Re: Eye discharge / brownish gunk

I read an article about using apple cider vinegar to reduce this 'poodle eyes' effect. I purchased Braggs organic apple cider vinegar and been adding a few drops to my dogs water. The results have been bi-fold. A reduction in the brown eye discharge but, also a improved and softer feeling fur...!

Re: Raw or Kibble

My friend has moved his dog raw due to problems with chewing and itching. I told him about my experience with Canagan and he's currently trying his dog on the free range chicken version so far, the results are looking positive. I've tried a number of different dry foods for my puppy, including Royal...

Re: Spaying / Neutering a female dog : Advice?

Thanks for the feedback, I will discuss it with our vet at the next visit. I am still inclined to have it done before her first season.

Re: Which Grain Free, hypoallergenic, dry complete food?

Thanks for the feedback. I am going to stick with Canagan chicken kibble for the time being as it seems to suit Ruby. Just got to get her trained to do her business outside (but, that's another story)

The breeder was Joanna Johnson from Trentdale from North Lincs.

Eye discharge / brownish gunk

I have noticed in the past few days that my puppy (Ruby) has developed some brownish discharge / gunk around the lower parts of eyes (almost like brown tears) This hardens and is quite difficult to remove and appears to be staining Ruby's light coloured fur. I have checked with a quick call to the v...

Re: Which Grain Free, hypoallergenic, dry complete food?

I was having an issue with my puppy with Royal Canin the breeder was feeding him on. With runny poos and lots of them. I have tried Millies Wolfheart Countryside, which Ruby liked but the kibbles were rather large and difficult for the 12 week old puppy. The poos improved (a little) but, there were ...

Re: Puppy Toilet Training advice

Thanks for the comments and advice. I will try putting the pad near to the back door and encourage Ruby to go there or outside. I guess it's a bit of trial and error until they learn the what is required.

Re: Puppy Toilet Training advice

Thank you for the feedback and advice. I'm sure things will improve from next week when we can take our puppy outside following her recent injections. I will have to try and train her to go in a certain part of the garden and use an instruction like 'go quickly' Lets hope she gets the hang of it...

Puppy Toilet Training advice

Hello, I'm a newbie to the forum. We've just got our miniature labradoodle puppy at 9 weeks (Ruby). We are currently trying to train the puppy to use the puppy pads without much success. Hence the floor is now covered in newspapers to capture the random places selected by Ruby. The breeder mentioned...
