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

if there is gunk in there mate and it’s shaking all the time scratching uuntil they bleed 

if you smell them does it smell could be an infection maybe need anti biotics could also be ear mites will be muck  in there and normally scratching until they bleed on out side id get some advocate for this mate be on the safe side it must be horrible shaking head and scrating 

 

the nails just trim mate leave abit past tithe quick 5mm or so doesn’t hurt them just get them snipped mate 

best thing for teeth is bones regular mate if they are bad then plague off works i seen it on a old staffys teeth worked a treat after a month just sprinkle a spoon you get in the tub  on the meal everyday then once abit better  bones aswell 

 

hope this helps mate

Like mc said its probably infection and your dog be in discomfort so best thing you could do is go vets and have it looked at ,my young bitch had a reaction to a new carpet last year and lost fur and bunged up ear so carpet came up fur grew back but needed ear rinse and that's something best left to vet .

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 old school techniques to keep up the general hygiene of our beloved canine sidekicks. 
Trying to break the monotany of the “show us your…” and “new pup” posts

Has that one got thing to stop you cutting to much off?

If you trim them and then file them you will not need to trim so much and the quick will slowly go back over time.

      I’m looking for some advice as we recently rescued a whippet lurcher mix. She’s extremely friendly and sociable with dogs and people but is constantly biting and grabbing our older dogs legs, ears and neck. He’s s cavachon and doesn’t really care for playing or interacting with other dogs so he rarely snaps or growls at her when she starts. He’ll just stand there looking at us or try to run away. She’s never been aggressive towards him and regularly try’s to protect him if other dogs get rough with him. However she’s constantly biting at him when he starts barking or when’s she too excited. We separate her and tell her no but so far it’s not working and he’s doing little to tell her to stop. My worry is he’s much smaller then her and that she might accidentally hurt him if we weren’t there to stop it. Is this common Lurcher behaviour and any suggestions? Thanks

      Hello to all.
      I would like some help with our lurchers coat. Luna is 3 this year, her Mum was a Border Collie x Whippet (merle) her Dad a Whippet x Greyhound (Non-Merle). I think she has the harlequin merle modifier gene, I don't think she is double merle, her Dad was not cryptic as far as we can tell. She has no helth issues eyesight excellent and her hearing is as selective as any lurcher. 
      She is a stunning wee dog, very unique markings, great temperament.
      Any help appreciated.

      Help Required as to ancestry /history of my saluki /Greyhound. 
      I have just lost my dog of a lifetime to cancer, she was 11/12 yrs old.I am truly heartbroken. 
      I'm not a hunter,but have always loved sight hounds in particular salukis.
      My dog Fern was a very distinguishable sighthound ,her colouring alone a mutated dilute. Was quite a show stopper. I'd have people literally stopping cars to ask what she was as she held herself well and looked awesome. 
      She was Steel and tan with a white butterfly on chest. White tips on feet. 
      Fur like velvet and shone.
      A glamourous looking dog.
      She passed through I believe 5 lurcher men before coming to me age around 4 yrs. 
      I had her 8 yrs. 
      I have  sketchy details of her young life and know she was initially used as a racing dog and then a lampers dog. Until she hurt her spine and broke a toe.  
      Fern was born around 2009,lived in North East England (Northumberland).
      I believe she had two litters of puppies (do you have one?)
      Lived Winlaton, Mickley,Prudhoe , Ryton, Greenside, Horsley.
      I believe her father (sire) may of being khan jihad. 
      I believe her mother (dam) was a steel greyhound and was a Irish coursing champion.  
      Does anyone know who that might be?
      Who bred Fern?
      Does her heritage fit time scale wise?
      I would dearly love to know as I said, totally in bits at her loss. 
      I just want to try and recreate her or seek out someone who might be able too from same lineage. 
      Whilst I'm not a hunter, I turned Fern from huntress to helper in that I used her skills and abilities to bring deer out to me to photograph, as I'm a professional photographer. We were quite a team. 
      I just loved everything about that girl.
      Thanks for any help received.
