Re: New puppy blues

Sounds like Barkley is doing really well
With Willow to help with her need to chew I would give her a pizzle to distract /occupy her
She also has a wide variety of those that I alternate which helps
Good luck

Re: Bitches wee damaging grass

Thanks for all the suggestions
I also looked on loose and got similar advice
I have ordered the dog rocks to try out

I'm all for making my hubby wait to go to toilet to see how he likes it!!

Will keep you informed how it goes!

Bitches wee damaging grass

Hi does anyone have a solution for preventing the grass discolouring (goes brown)where Willow urinates
Trying to encourage her to wait for her walks or go in other areas other than the lawn so far partially works but doesn't always
Doesn't bother me as much as my other half!!
