    How long do pups howl?

    I think he’s just getting big enough to be left most of the night mate as he is holding it quite well atm so will start to reduce getting up so early. Considering getting my old spaniel from my mums and leaving her with him for a few weeks so he has some company to settle him down.

    How long do pups howl?

    Yes mate, hes just very clingy pup, even with a kong full of food he would drop that and try to come with you as you leave instead. Its nice to have a pup that’s so keen to be with you, I’m just worried he won’t grow out of it and he could have a habit of howling for a long time.

    How long do pups howl?

    Someone has said to me might have to start the water bottle squirting, although someone else has said you don’t want to scare the pup as he’s only young. Also how did you manage to spray him? I ideally want to avoid going into the room so he doesn’t thing whingeing means I come to him!

  5. Got a new pup had him 3 weeks now, first week almost he absolutely screamed and howled all night long, we ignored it as were told if we went down it would reinforce the behaviour. After a few nights we got an Adaptil plug in and fair play he settled much better for a few nights but after that he started howling again but only for a few minutes. Problem is he will also howl daytime any time he is left alone, he won’t howl for too long but it’s loud and don’t really want to fall out with the neighbours. I often go into work late and he is only left for short times eg 10am - 12pm - then ill work from home in the afternoon so I can let him out frequently etc. Also our lodger is a nurse is often home all day and will have him with her so he’s not left alone to cry much (she doesn’t go to him when he cries or whines). Despite this he will still howl for a good 5-15 mins (sometimes longer) when left alone. I currently get up around 3:00 - 3:30am to let him out to pee / poop as I read that he is currently too small (11 weeks atm) to hold it all night. Issue then is I put him straight back to the crate after toilet interview and once I leave he starts the howling again in the middle of the night Not sure if this is something he will grow out of or if I need to do something before it turns into a habit that I’ll never get rid of!

    Kennels - Bars or Mesh?

    That's the thing mate, if someone wants them bad enough they'll get them regardless of what you've got.

    Kennels - Bars or Mesh?

    Alright lads, not been on here for a while but know you lads have lots of experience with dogs etc so good to ask, I'm looking to get a Mitton Hall Kennel, a blenheim for my springer spaniel pup - just not sure whether to get the mesh or the bars - mesh is £1325 and bars its £1525. Expensive but heard they'll pretty much last forever and would rather spend out once than have to replace wood in future etc. Heard some dog can climb out of mesh - my spaniel climbed out of the "puppy pen" my mrs bought within about 5 minutes but these have a roof so not sure that would be an issue? Pro's and cons - I've been told bars are harder to cut but could be pried apart enough to get dog through, bars stop dogs jumping up but they could get their head (a spaniel) stuck between bars. Mesh - some lads have said their dog can jump up and get their leg caught in it etc and also encourages jumping up that can't be done on bars, not as secure as could be cut but can't be pried open. Really not sure ... does anyone have experience of both? Lloyd

    Putting in kennel drains

    Has anyone put in a drain for kennels? Want to get a kennel and run up in th garden before new pup comes, there is a drain pipe down the back of the house that collects rain water off the house, would I be able to run it into this or not? Even if I can will it be on enough of a slope to drain the water away? I will measure the distance from the back of the house to the back of the garden in a bit but it’s not a huge garden, approx 5m. Currently mostly laid to slabs so I assume those would need to be lifted and have a trench dug down for the pipe? Unfortunately the only rear access is through the house so likely need to be dug by hand

    Irritated paws

    Anyone know any remedies for irritated paws and possible allergies? Out visiting family abroad and they have a lovely mastiff x ridgeback but he gets things like pollen on his paws and they get red and inflamed - he then licks them and they get worse. Hes on Lorreradine anti histamine and some steroid (blue tablets - 20mg of presnisolone) but they’ve never got him good enough to just be on the anti histamine. He also has his feet washed in Malaceb anti fungal wash once a week ish at least and more if he’s bad. Issues they are having is that they can’t walk him that much as when he is out a lot it gets much worse and his feet really flare up - and they’re not too happy leaving him home all day. When it is bad he can lick it a lot and get sores on his feet which can wheep and are open. Aopreciate any remedies or tips

    Indian Take Aways

    Too much oil (ghee) for me, bloody swimming in the stuff so don't have it very often! Not to bad if you make your own but it don't taste the same! Chinese ain't no better, most their sauces jammed full of sugar! Fast takeaway food one of the main reasons for obesity in this country I reckon!

    His Very First Roe Buck

    Owen is a true gent and true and had a great time visiting him! Fair play he went right out of his way to get me on a Buck I've been out on paid stalks before and didn't even get to pull the trigger so to have gents like Owen willing to take people out and get them onto deer without asking for anything speaks volumes about his character!! Was very happy as I'd reloaded my own rounds from scratch, practiced and now bagged my first ever Roe Buck had Roe steaks with veg for lunch and venison stew for tea lol Once again thank you Owen! I'll remember my first ever Roe Buck for a long time and being able to share a good laugh and joke with a sound bloke is a massive bonus! Hope your man flu is gone soon, think I've brought it back to Bristol with me lol
  15. why would a protein shake show up in a drug test They are steroid supplements used mainly in the bodybuilding world mate. They're a natural product from making milk and are just the skim off the milk, contains protein same as chicken, beef or fish! Not sure if your actually serious or taking the piss Sorry I thought protein shakes were banned for natural athletes but I've looked it up there and i think I was getting it confused with another banned strength supplement called creatine. Stop pulling people legs
