  1. Aint no bunny on the roads round my way
  2. Any rabbit skins about? Want to knock up a dummy for the pup
  3. Inkeeping with the theme...any advice on deshedding tools? Rather the advice of dog men rather than sponsored ads on google searches. My last broken coated boy didnt really blow but this new one must have sled dog blood in there somewhere with the amount he drops in summer months
  4. Slowly. Taking a while to get him out of that “teenage” phase. He’s quite hard headed, learns quick enough due to the collie but very much has that bull terrier stubborness
  5. Stands 27ish tts last weigh in was 32kg but probably 35ish now. Heavy for his height but moves well enough considering the thickness of his front end
  6. Here’s mine at 16 months, still filling out and finding his feet
  7. Might just be the fact that his radars just attract a bit more grime. Doesnt suffer with eyes but also doesnt dig railway embankments so that probably helps
  8. Thought it was about time a uselful topic was presented that didnt involve arguing over best type or the slop haha
  9. Think its just from not getting em cleaned out fully off the bat. Last dog had a floppy ear so wasnt problem this one has pricked ears so notice they get dirtier faster. he’s a wimp when it comes to nails can cut his pads/feet to pieces without a care go to do his nails n he hates it! collie bull grey
  10. Not scratching at all. He has big ears that seem to fill quickly, no sign of ear mites and definitely no infection. Just general build up of gunk. Was mainly wondering what people used as a general cleaner as just cleaning them out doesnt seem to shift enough for it not to build back up quickly. also has quick growing nails and vet never seems to cut them back far enough. Ill trim them up myself but im reluctant to take them back too far all these things were mainly talked about as part of general maintenance of your dog and to see if anybody was using specific products or had any ol
  11. What do folk use for keeping their dogs at the height of cleanliness? Mostly talking about ears here, the amount of gunk that seems to build up resulting in all night head shaking is phenomenal. How cropped are you keeping nails? Best tooth and gum care? Seems not to be a topic but I know everybody is keeping their dogs in top condition
  12. Some sound advice here! Will probably try a mix of things with the harder side coming in if it doesnt improve. Had I had him from a pup I could have not encountered the issue but having him at such a headstrong age with super drive means Ill need to rectify a problem. Lets hope these techniques work
  13. Yeah he’s also game for birds! Hunts right up on everyone he sees! Dont really think theres not anything he aint showed interest in! Aint had him around cattle yet but Im sure he’d think they were on the menu n all. Biggest problem around here is actually having a fence between us and livestock, seem to be free roaming the streets at the moment so never know what will pop up and where
  14. Was hoping not to get to this stage but he is headstrong and may end up having to go down the admonishment route
  15. How did you go about it? Exposure? Balance training?
  16. So to give some background I rehomed this dog at 8 months old so only had him 4 weeks. Keen as mustard. Extremely focussed so turning his head is proving slightly more difficult
  17. Just wondering on everybodies take on stockbreaking. How did you go about it? I have a keen youngster here that would run amok with livestock given 1/2 the chance. Recall is decent but at 9 months is going through his rebellious teenage phase thank in advance
  18. Wheaten Bull Grey by any chance? Seen the previous post about “in colour” at the moment and Wheaten crosses seem to also be the “in thing” at the moment find that they throw a lot of fawn with black faces
