Rusty is gorgeous, making me broody. We used citronella to stop the chewing of tables, chairs and skirting boards. Get down on your hands and knees and rub it everywhere puppy can get to. I think it will put most dogs off = and reapply regularly.

Me too, I don't like being without my daily fix of UKLA even if I don't contribute much I like to keep with how all our doods are doing.
We're taking a week's break soon in Fowey with the Padster and my sis in law's lab, a retired guide dog. We've rented a cottage in the town which is unusual for us as we usually go to the wilds in the middle of nowhere but thought this would be a change. So, my question is do any of you know Fowey? ...
Paddy is a PAT dog; we used to visit an old folks home where Paddy was much welcomed but I had to stop the visits as he was only interested in the food that was lying around. Sadly, a lot of crumbs and food dropped food in these places. The residents would call him and he'd go trotting over and fini...

I am astounded that anyone thinks debarking a dog is a good idea.linny wrote: Beverley Manners (Aussie Doodle breeder of notoriety at Rutland Manor) was into ESN to protect her financial interest she also debarked her dogs.
Do the dog's owner want a ferocious dog or are they clueless as to how to handle it? I agree with PollyDoodle, if the owners aren't going to do anything all you can do is avoid your dog becoming distressed and hurt. A more circuitous route back to your house is perhaps the only answer. A real pain I...

Had a long weekend in Langdale in the Lake District. Paddy (and me) conquered another peak; Crinkle Crags. It was a long walk about 8 hours in all but a beautiful day and Paddy was fantastic, kept waiting for me to catch up; he was off lead and didn't bother any sheep and managed the tricky bits lik...

My beautiful boy is 4 on Monday and although we have moved since we first had Paddy we always give indulgent smiles and remind ourselves of Paddy's puppy days when we see the tooth marks on the furniture and we still both wear our puppy nipped clothes. Enjoy the puppy days,they pass so quickly.

I read somewhere about the thanking your dog (probably on here); they are barking to alert you that there is danger and once you acknowledge it and stop telling them off they can relax. Kind of makes sense but, hey, if it works. ~Are you friendly with your postman, could they be introduced with post...
I have a small car and Paddy travels in the back seat which he seems to enjoy now. At first, he cried and howled and wouldn't get in but slowly, slowly with lots of rewards and fuss and exciting things at the end of the journey he adapted. Although we use my husband's larger car for long journeys to...
You've had great advice regarding your boy but I just thought I'd signpost you to a great website called Living Life to the Full. Lots of info on anxiety and how to manage it and I would recommend following the online programme. xx
