Re: dog friendly

We stayed in a friends cottage in South Devon (edge of Dartmoor)last year and there is an abundance of dog friendly beaches(sandy ones) and pubs, we felt welcome wherever we went.

Re: Mats

Jessie has a similar coat and has only settled in the last few months. You need to brush every day but I strongly suggest a short cut every few weeks until her adult coat is established .

Re: Won't wee or poo when on the lead

Take her into the garden on the lead each time, eventually she will go. When she goes praise her massively and let her off for a runaround as a reward. Jessie knows she is not running off lead up the park until she has done her business. We had this problem at the start, but once she has done it onc...

10 things your dog would tell you......

Came across this on Facebook, thought I would share 10 Things Your Dog Would Tell You.... 1. My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years. Any separation from you will be painful: remember that before you get me. 2. Give me time to understand what you want of me. 3. Place your trust in me- it is crucial...

Re: Anyone with windows 8?

It is designed for touch screens and keyboard. The difference is that it is APP driven like a tablet so you have to get used to it. We have just bought 2 laptops, you can only get windows8 now. There is a bug which they need to fix which makes it really difficult to get the web browser you want pinn...

Re: We'll just say hello!

Jessie was attacked at a class a few months ago, she was on the lead and a recently rescued boxer cross slipped her collar and attacked Jessie(and several other dogs) . So now when she is on the lead and a dog runs up to us she feels very vulnerable (I also tense up which makes it worse), it is not ...

Re: A good way to recall

Brilliant !
I read an article a few months ago which suggests you just ignore your dog and keep walking and that they can smell you to catch up again. I was to chicken to try it though :wink:

Re: Crouching down to meet other dogs - advice

I agree with Bid. Jessie does this when she sees a new dog. If she s off the lead I just wait and let her go and greet in her own time. If she is on the lead walking along the road I get really embarrassed because she will stand frozen to the spot until the dog has either passed us or they have said...
