Re: Kennel Quandry

Hi there, Adam turns 40 on Sunday. I hope it wasn't as hot as it was yesterday 38 deg and last night at 11pm it was still in the 30's. This is the link to a really good dog friendly place you might be interested in staying at. http://www.helsburypark.co.uk/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=Email%20market...

Re: Are 2 doodles better than 1?

I have 10 dogs in total' I walk 4 at a time and they do well, they all know the rules and now I was thinking of getting a sledge and they can pull the sledge for when I have my very bad days and can't walk :) I have a friend who has tried this with a scooter and has come unstuck on a number of occas...

Re: Rutland Manor - when you think it can't get any worse...

WOW how does that work any dog coming or going from Oz has to be in a sealed crate and signed off both ends by a vet. And there is strictly no toys etc in the crate with them..Even my Hong Kong puppy had to be sealed in his crate and signed off by a vet both ends. My friend is also just about to shi...

Re: Rutland Manor - when you think it can't get any worse...

Sounds good. Do they have to go through any quarantine from the States to the UK? Over here you have to take your wooden crates away with you from quarantine, they are not sprayed and they also use the same collars and leads they were wearing although they take them off for the flight they attach th...

Re: Rutland Manor - when you think it can't get any worse...

Yes you might be right but most people including most breeders use hires crates from the shipping companies. This particular puppy was collected in the right crate BUT when they get back to the shipping or Quarantine station it is out of any breeders control as they invariably change crates etc espc...

Re: Rutland Manor - when you think it can't get any worse...

In the UK I would agree but in Oz the safest and quickest way to get any animal from A to B is via plane. The hold is climate controlled and if they are taken by youself to the airport then they don't board till the last minute so they can stay out on the grass in the shade with you until it is time...

Re: something you don't (want) to see every day

This Stick Insect was mighty strong as well he had as much strength as one of our dogs as I tried to get him to go back up the tree where he is suppose to live..

Very beautiful in a strange sort of way though..

Re: Rutland Manor - when you think it can't get any worse...

Carol have you now become an expert in Shipping Dogs...How many have you shipped by plane? I for one can tell you it is not something I do lightly but unfortunately in Australia this is the only way to go to lessen the stress on the dogs, it takes days by road to get a dog from one end of NSW to ano...

Re: allergys and insurance

Have you checked for mites?? Mites are very common in this country due to the weather we have, if a dog has mites in his ears then they tend to scratch with their paws and then mites are also on the paws if they go to scratch other parts of their bodies they may have mites there as well. A tell tale...

Re: Govt wanting RM land

We have said before that land around Rutland Manor is being subdivided it is common knowledge, why don't you try contacting Baw Baw council and ask them you obviously can afford long distance calls and have plenty of time on your hands... IF Len Tranter is related to Debra Tranter and IF this is tru...

Anyway Mary who are you? and how did you manage to find out this info? Thank you for letting us know though I am very intrigued to find out more now...
