Re: Looking for a Golden doodle breeder

Hi and welcome, Don't mean to be negative..just my opinion but personally I would stay clear from a breeder that uses the Poodle as a dam for the first cross because I don't believe it is safe or fair on the mums welfare. Labrador and Retriever's are chunkier dogs then the Poodle and if some of the...

Re: A candle and healing thoughts for Tasha's Louie

Poor Lou, will be thinking of you too and if I can find a candle I will light it for you. It might have to be a birthday cake one because I seem to have loads of them at the moment. Positive thoughts and best wishes to you and Tasha of course. God bless you both. :cry:

Re: HICCUPS

My guess would be indigestion of some degree, make sure plenty of fresh water is available and avoid over activity on a full stomach.

Hope this helps. :)

Re: When do pups stop growing?

JWB is a 3* food according to this http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com/dog-food-index-a.html and certainly better than many other 1* commercial foods available ie. Pedigree, Bakers, Eukanuba, Hills etc. If it suits your dog then stick with it, if it doesn't than look at the 4* plus foods available on the...

Re: puppy exercise

I think it is an individual thing and best to go with your pups needs. Things to be avoided, especially with large breed dogs is jumping into the back of the car, constant running up and down stairs and forcing them to walk miles when they are obviously tired. You can't stop a pup from being a pup b...

Re: When do pups stop growing?

They continue to grow until around 18 months to 2 years. Although it should slow down considerably from around 12 months when they tend to fill out and catch up proportionally. I have been doing extensive research into protein and it is not the amount of protein in the diet that is the problem it i...

Re: Help-Faggle's Discovered Cat Poo!!!!

I am not sure that they do grow out of it. Teddy and Truffle are 3.5 and 4 years old and are still partial to an occasional cat poop. They do however, both understand and obey the leave it command so if I catch them at it I can correct them. They need to learn not to do it and usually will want to p...
