Re: Chewing-HELP!!

Try putting something in front of his favourite skirting board to break the habit. This appears to have worked with Buster, we tied a kitchen stool in front of his favourite post :shock: :lol: With our lovely pine furniture (which have a few bite marks but easy to sand out when he reaches the 1 mil...

Re: Chewing-HELP!!

I remember reading, i think on this forum, that surgical spirit is good. Whenever Hattie has had a go at something she shouldn't (mainly a rug we have) i have dabbed it with surgical spirit and it seems to work. She visibly screws up her nose and snorts at it and then walks away. Worth a try maybe....

Re: Chewing-HELP!!

Must be something nice in painted skirting boards, Arianne did have a bit of a go, when she was waiting for me to get dressed and was just bored or excited at the thought of a walk. I too filled the damage and the plaster hole that appeared too, and had it re-excavated, have waited a while before f...

Re: Chewing-HELP!!

I've seen on here that you can use citronella oil to stop dogs chewing things, but I've no idea whether it works or not! Wendy x Thanks, I've tried that previously, and tea tree oil which was recommended to stop my old JR chewing a bandage on his foot, didn't stop him, but I'll certainly give it an...

Chewing-HELP!!

Any advise please as I have just had my skirting boards filled and re-painted after my Doodle chewed them. I now also have a 4 month old Jack Russell pup and the last coiuple of days 2 of the corners of the skirtings have been chewed again. I know the pup's done one but the Doodle may have done the ...

Re: A bit concerned or being silly?

Hi there, your pup looks lovely. And we were in your position 9 months ago. I wanted to stagger the puppy vaccinations but as she was 12 weeks old the breeder had already got them all done. And she seems none the worse but was suffering with an extremely upset tum when we got her home. I have never...

Re: Help!! Gypsy needs a new name!!

Hi , Don't know what you are going to call her, I have just been to see all the pups and they are doing great. I really like the name Gypsy. They are all runing around having a bite at each other and me I nearly lost a finger when Waldo bit me. Ha Ha. http://i577.photobucket.com/albums/ss219/margar...

Re: Beautiful 9 Month Old Girl Needs Rehoming - Pippa

Hello All, I have found Pippa a new home and I believe she is settling in very well. I was contacted via this site and independently via doggy day care by a couple in Cheshire. I met them and felt their lifestyle was ideal for Pippa and her energy levels :D The process was actually much quicker tha...

Re: Hi I'm new to this!

Hi My name is Betty. I have a labradoodle called Rosie. She is nearly 8 months old. She is doing ok with the training, recall etc, but forgets herself when other dogs are around. She is extremely friendly and just wants to be round lots of friends! When she is at home, she can drive you to distract...

Re: Are these really labradoodles?

Mmm, think she's found a Doodle pup, a terrier x pup and a Heinz 57. Wouldn't trust her as far as I could throw her.

Re: Beautiful 9 Month Old Girl Needs Rehoming - Pippa

Hi David Glad to hear that you have found a new home for Pippa, I hope she settles in well and best of luck. I hope you didnt think i was looking for a "free dog" as Mrs Admin said, as I would never have thought of a dog that way!! I think people should be careful what they post as I think it must ...

Re: seasonal changes

Thanks. I'm just going on a friend whose large Doodle was only 8 months. There was some blood on the floor about 8 weeks ago, but only for one day and she showed no other signs. I have an elderly Jack Russell bitch, so the blood could have been from a broken claw or tooth from her, although she had ...

Re: seasonal changes

Can anyone tell me the range of age for Doodles to have their first season? Eva is now 9 1/2 months and no signs yet. She's quite a big girl and I wonder if the bigger they are the older they are before their first season? She does seem to be listening a bit more when we're out, that is she'll wait ...

Sorry. I'm all over the place. Didn't mean to seem rude, it just feels a bit like some people haven't been very supportive and have infact seemed annoyed at my first post. We're rooting for you. Hope he's feeling better, sometimes it takes a while to get your strength back, like after 'flu. Sure he...

Re: Off to the vets tomorrow. :(

We got the results yesterday and he hasn't got AD, which is somewhat of a relief. I say somewhat because now we don't know what's wrong with him. The vet's advised us to keep an eye on him, and give him an update next week. If nothing's improved then he'll do further tests. His appetite is back to ...
