  1. Dry Food.... To Soak Or Not To Soak

    Fats do dogs are like carbs to us it's there main enegy source.... if you feed meat with a nice bit of fat in that's usually bang on. However there are benefits to feeding lard with dogs ie if your feeding rabbit or any other kind of lean meat you need to be adding lard as a rule of thumb. Lard is also beneficial to dogs prone to cramping and dogs that are in poor conditin and/or underweight ATB
  2. Those of you who fwed dry dog food how do you feed it do you soak it or feed it dry if you do soak it how do you do it. I soak mime in lukewarm water for about 4 hours.

    I once seen a dog break a track record fed on a cheap complete food and a little bit of cooked chicken mince......seen that dog go to other kennels and perform no better. That taught me if the dg has ability it will run no matter what. Not that I would feed a cheap shit food like 😂

    I'm not knocking bone men. People use them others don't I care witch one you are if I'm honest it's all about opinions but MY OPINION is that nothing can possibly come out of a place be it a back or a shoulder if it did no living creature would be able to walk. I remember when my Mrs dad had a trapped nerve in his back he was off work for a good few months and anything he did caused him great pain. So I'm just saying clunk click that trapped nerve has gone I don't buy that shite. Chiropractic work has been used sometimes well in greyhounds ie when soreness inbetween a dogs shoulder blades.or pain in the lower back. I just think they take the piss everything boils down to trapped nerves or things been out on dogs MY OPINION is that they are taking people's money and feeding them shite. Either that or they are trying to sell them the next best machine be it ultrasound or a certain box for them to stand in for 15 mins that rids of pain. As for the clown that says I came here to advertise what do I have to gain have NEVER took a penny from any dog I have looked at for anyone I just try to help out and give a second opinion before they throw a score or whatever away.

    Simply has the dogs to win derby's with mate a half whit could win the derby with the dogs he has had. Give Charlie lister a f***ing a7 dog and it will be just that a a7 grader. Im not saying I'm right and everyone's wrong we all have our own opinions. I'm glad you lot have results. But I've never been a fan of these bone clickers. Nowt but noise for me

    I wasn't referring to any old micky mouse vets though that to be fair only have degrees is sticking a vaccine in your dog and sell you prescriptions and overpriced food. And try to drain everu penny off you. I'm taliking about proper canine athlete vets. Dr allesandro pires dr ray Ferguson etc etc. Well I'm pleased these so called bone men work for you. I wosh I had a pound for everybtime I seen them throw a dog about clunk click that's it now me she will fly out the traps this week and win have your few bob on. Only to see the dog run as poor as ever. It's like anything else each to there own. If we all did the same life would be boring

    I often think about helping people out when it comes to injury detection I have done it occasionly for a few greyhound people and managed to get them right for them. I'm not one of those people that cracks backs and all that shite. Personaly I don't believe anything like that has any benefit what so ever in any living creature, be it canine or human equine what ever half of these people do it for the sake of it and to make you feel like your getting your money's worth top vets have proved there is mo such thing as "trapped up" and all it takes is them pulling there necks that little bit too far to cause some serious damage. When a dog under performs it's generally some sort of injury that is usually simple to find or can be someting internal such as infection or something lacking in blood. If any one wants someone to take a look a look at a dog that they think may be injured I'm happy enough to help. Free of charge. Based in S.Yorkshire

  12. Let's See Your Dogs Fitness Regimes!!

    In the greyhound world it's walking leads to galloping, galloping leads to trialing, and trialing leads to racing by the time your dogs running races it should be pretty fit. All you have to do is monitor there health and keep them fresh in between racing shortwalks the occasional canter in the field. So once you got your dog lamping or whatever regular nothing much is required
  13. Feeding

    intrested to know people opinions on feeding working and racing dogs. Coming from a lifetime of racing greyhounds I can honestly say the more you've been in the game the less you use in rehgrds to pretty much anything. When I first started out I had them on pretty much everything breakfast us to be cereal milk honey eggs and glucose and white e Tea was gain 28 and brown bread nuggets 1 pound of meat pasta gain garmivit tye gard brewers yeast cod liver oil and bit c Looking back it was more like a pharmacy lol. These days it's just simple Either a bone or something dental orientated for breakfast and gain 28 with half a pound of beef 6 days and either fish or chicken the 1 day no vitamins or anything added only pearl barley after a race that flushes all the system out. Dogs run better than ever now. Because I've learnt you can give them what you want if it ain't sound its no good for nothing. A sound and fresh dog will always prevail. And if it's a fast dog there's no need for these addatives cause all they do to be fair is piss them out
