Re: Secure field Durham area

There's a place called Coatham Woods, it's a little way from Durham, it's between Long Newton and Urlay Nook just off the A66 near Stockton-on Tees. It is not totally secure but a fab place to walk and there are sections well away from the road if you were having a good day and felt like letting him...

Re: Goldendoodle babysitter for 1 day North East?

I am so sorry I just picked this up today :( I would have had him, it would have given me a chance to see what my girl (a doodle :lol: ) is like with a little one.
I'm near Darlington if ever you fancy a walk. Mabel my doodle is half goldendoodle, half labradoodle.

Re: The Chronicles of Freddy West - Revenge of the Dreadlock

I use Johnson's baby 'No More Tangles' shampoo and conditioner on Mabel. You can even get a spray on conditioner that you can use anytime - no need to wash out.

Re: Thinking of getting a Spinone

Spinones' not the brightest :idea: - don't you believe it! They are very different from doodles though. I had a rehome spinone for about seven years (he was six when we got him). Spins are very laid back when they mature, they are slower to do things but it's a slow lolloping gait - which is very el...

Re: Kong

Bits of cooked or raw vegetables, then add gravy and freeze. Be careful where you give him this to eat as it can make a mess. :oops: Low fat cream cheese or Peanut butter If you look on the internet for kong recipes there are loads. I also used to give these when Mabel was teething. As I'm a bit of ...

Re: Help please, a new barking problem

We live in a similar situation, quiet road, only eight houses in our hamlet, but lots of walkers, cyclists, horses and Mabel is a barker! In her defence I think it is more a 'look at this' or 'don't go with out me! (when I leave her in the car). She will shut up with the word 'stop' but not every ti...

Re: We bought the runt. Can you show me yours?

Mabel was crated from the word GO! At 8wks she was brilliant sleeping downstairs (OK at the foot of the stairs os I could hear her. I swear the old baby hearing came back, I was like a hawk one squeak and I was awake!). The one and only time we had a problem was the first time I left her for a morni...

Re: Which dried food?

I fed Mabel Burns dog food from the day I brought her home until six months ago (she is four years old). She did very well on it, poos fine. Then she stopped eating it, refused it for weeks only eating when very hungry. I tried various toppers, she would pick the other food out and even lick it off ...

Re: Allergic to internal stitches...

When Mabel was spayed, she began dragging herself across the floor as she couldn't get to her stitches because of the cone collar. She was very distressed, the next morning I had to take her back in as she had burst her stitches and was 'hanging out'. :cry: They re-stitched her with stronger stuff. ...
