    Dogs humping things

    Our intact 3 year old has taken to humping her spayed sister, we stop it as soon as we see it, but I think it's a confidence thing with the new youngster and the dog sat girl having just been spayed and having to be kept separate. Hoping that she'll calm down as everything gets back to normal.

    It’s no longer true that hard work…

    I grew up not far from the Whitaker farm and riding school, Micheal and John had nothing handed to them on a plate! There are two other brothers who also worked on the farm. Their father, Donald ran a mixed livestock farm and tight did not begin to describe him. In common with other farming...

    Puppy biting

    If you have two pups together, you have to be interesting to them, so that they don't learn to ignore you. One of the rotters was quite happy to leave her sister and her people to get into trouble😁. I'm pretty sure she'd have been the same if she'd been an only dog.

    Neuro/pain/twitching

    Could it be a form of epilepsy? The shaking and saliva sound possibly indicative, hope you manage to get to the bottom of it soon

    So as not to derail another thread: does your dog need to bring you toys when you come in?

    Dad's elderly black lab had a washing basket full of toys, which she had shared with her sister. She had two reindeer, which she kept to give to visiting dogs. She gave them to the visiting Dalmatian and staffy and then to the rotters when they were little.

    So as not to derail another thread: does your dog need to bring you toys when you come in?

    Butterscotch lab loves to carry a toy around at home, black one not that bothered, but the black one will carry a ball whenever she's out on a walk. The baby brown girl hasn't quite decided yet.

    Hunting is in a spot of bother

    I think you will find that in some of the programmes you are talking about, that the prey are indeed "set up" for the filming.

    All change.

    Oh lordy, that does sound awkward, poor creature, did she have very little interaction with other dogs as a puppy farmed animal?

    All change.

    It's fascinating how the established ones show them how to go on, which also makes life easier, or so we find.

    Should there be a weight limit for people at shows (and if so, what and how?!)

    I do think that people also forget that disordered eating is not just about anorexia and being too thin.

    Should there be a weight limit for people at shows (and if so, what and how?!)

    The approach that is taken should surely depend on the age of the girl in the picture.
