Re: Shampoo nightmare

Try Mutney's Hypoallergeic Shampoo. My Bichon never had an issue with it .... she used to come up in hives and rashes with some shampoos. Highly recommend :)

Labradoodle Cancer

Hello All! Some of you may remember I posted a while ago about my Labradoodle being diagnosed with Osteosarcoma. She is defying all the odds and is still with us and still fighting! I used to be a regular poster on this site a few years ago. I have created a facebook page for Tilly for people to fol...

Tilly - Cancer Diagnosis

A couple of months ago I noticed a lump on Tilly's front leg. X-rays, a referral to Fitzpatrick and CT scans later showed it to be an Osteosarcoma. The most aggressive form of Bone Cancer. I am heartbroken. As silly as it seems, she is the love of my life, a one in a million dog. After the initial s...

Hello

Hi all, just thought I'd pop in again and say hello! Tilly's doing well! I've recently started to do muscle massage on her (Galen Therapy) and it is really helping her live life to the full. You would never tell she had joint problems. She still trains and occasionally competes in Agility and enjoys...

Re: Claw clipping, or not.

Unless you are confident, the dog will pick up on your nervousness and play up. Has he had a bad experience with the quicks being cut before? I would pop him down to your groomer who will do them for you for a small fee.

Does anyone know what oxygen absorbers look like? They're in beef jerky and my 3 have one daily. :?
Aren't they the little white packs of gel you find in some products? I put ours straight in the bin whenever I find them.

Re: Can anyone recommend a REALLY strong tug toy??

SWAG Agility tug toys and leads are great. I was skeptical at first, never thought they would last 5 mins. My first set has lasted 2 years with regular use and extreme tugging from a mental Doodle!! The lead is excellent, has withheld a 40kg Doodle pulling and tugging it!! :D ETA I don't leave the l...

Hello! Tillytubbie here! Just thought I'd pop in and give you guys an update! Tilly is doing well, we're managing her Arthritis and she still does Agility.

Re: Dog clipping - going it alone

Well done, it was a great first attempt!! The thing to remember with blades is that the higher the number, the shorter the cut. A 10 blade is used for hygiene areas where you want the coat to be extremely short. For a Doodle coat, I would recommend a 5F blade if you want it longer, or a 7F if you wa...

Re: Dog clipping - going it alone

If I can give you any advice it would be this: make sure the coat is completely Matt and tangle free before you even think about putting clippers through it. If you can get a comb all the way through without it getting stuck or pulling, then you are safe :)

Took the girls to the park yesterday in the sun and took a few pictures.

Kennel Cough!

Betsy has it, not Tilly! Aside from keeping them away from other dogs and giving them honey,what other things can you do to help sooth the cough? Tilly's only had it once, a long time ago! And Tilly is not showinf any symptoms of it at all which is strange, given how contagious it is!

Re: Retired Doodle

Our club is based down here in West Sussex, it is a great club :) And they hold the majority of classes indoors so we stay dry in the winter!
It does take a while to understand the turns, where to be at the right time etc, but once you understand it, Agility is so fun and addictive!! :)
