Tics....help.

Hi, in Yorkshire this weekend & whilst we know what an actual Tic looks like we unfamiliar what they look when latched onto dog. Could someone advise what they look like on a pet's skin? We have found what looks like a dried out spot , wart type on his skin, and another that looks a little like a bl...

Re: Wee burning grass\tomato juice

We have used the 'rocks' for water & they're a waste of money. If you read up on these 'lawn patches' online Brewers Yeast Tablets keep cropping up for, not a cure, but help. Avoid ketchup as the salt content can damage kidneys. Good luck.

Re: Crate suggestions?

I have just bought a 48" crate from ebay but they are all with metal trays, I sold my smaller crate on 'Gumtree' recently & I know there were lots on there. Good luck. Denise.

Re: Jecca pictures

Gorgeous!! Persevere with crate, it's a godsend and prevents all the biting & destroyable traits. Alfie been in a crate from bringing home at 8wks, & it turns into their litttle 'haven' after the 1st week or so, at night we made it cosy & covered it in with a blanket over the full crate and from 1st...

Re: Labradoodle coats

Aww he is gorgeous & it's so exciting getting a doodle pup isn't it?. Alfie is now 6months old & we are still unsure of how his coat will turn out as he seems to be changing monthly. His mum is blonde 'shaggy coated' almost a 'crimped' effect, his dad is black shaggy rough haired . Here are some pic...

Re: To crate train or not to crate train? That is the questi

We have crate trained Alfie and is used as a comfortable Den for him & not a 'Cage', I originally bought a 32" crate, but he grew so quickly that at 5month old (last wk) we upgraded to a 48" which is fab, enough room for toys , water bowl etc & a good space to stretch out. We have cozy non slip vetb...

Re: He's home!!

Awww Casper is gorgeous!! Hope he has a good 1st night. When we brought Alfie home his 1st night in crate was uneventful, he was given a scrap of vetbed from litter with scent of pups, we placed a ticking clock on top of crate, an item of clothing(i.e old sweater). Important to cover crate at night ...

Re: A long tale...but I need your help!

I do hope you find a compromise & I totally agree it is human error in most cases with destroying things, my hubby left some steak on worksurface yesterday & Alfie helped himself to it!! That wasn't Alfie's fault!! But since we got Alfie at 8wks his crate is really his Haven & he loves it, just boug...

Re: Dog crate question

We have had Alfie in his crate since coming home from breeder & he loves it, however we bought it from breeder 36" and it's now too little for him so have had to purchase a 48" crate(he's 5months), it's his haven when tired during the day and we have 'green backed' vetbed which is fab, no accidents ...
