    Dog thefts and prevention - Red Dog Spray

    I’ve thought about this a lot. As I’ve said before, Bo is very lead reactive, so if on a road walk, I can’t see anyone getting close enough to grab him. He’s also very wary of men, and when we are off lead in the woods, he’s fine if ignored, (I do call him back to me when we see people), but...

    Just need a hug (dog related)

    Bo has been messing during the day, and occasionally overnight since the fireworks started. He had been clean for around a year. We did change him from Millie’s to Wolf of Wilderness, not sure exactly when, but possibly around the same time. After speaking to Clodagh last week, we are going...

    To cold for dogs?

    Yep, that’s Luna. The only difference is, she’s not that bothered whether I sleep outside with her, but we’re not allowed to shut the back door whilst she’s outside!

    To cold for dogs?

    We have a husky and a border collie, so both have coats to deal with the cold. Both have loved playing in the snow in the garden, and before bedtime wees, can be a bit of a challenge to get them in. When they are indoors though, this happens.

    Alabama Rot. New cases confirmed.

    Yes, I saw it on FB. We don’t tend to walk there, we stick to Blidworth Woods where the horses are, but it’s not that far away.

    We’re in the Ashfield area. Am keeping a close eye on our two.

    Vet visit

    Clodagh’s working conditions are what many many of us are having to work with/to. Myself and OH share costs of most bills between us, but that doesn’t mean, I’m happy to just stop working because he can afford to cover the bills. I’m not sure you live in the real world sometimes.

    Dog Clippers

    I ordered a set of these, admittedly not for the dogs. They’ve given Dolly a couple of small clips, even trimmed tails with them...

    Dog thefts

    Reading this post makes me glad that Bo is so lead reactive. Would take a brave person to try and take him or Luna with him kicking off. Whether he would actually bite, I can’t say, but who knows. As a previous poster said, our collar tags don’t have their names on, just my surname and contact...

    One dog or two? And if two, what would you pick?

    Bo loves Luna, but out and about, is generally indifferent to others dogs we meet. They went into kennels when we went on holiday last year (before COVID). The kennels were fab, had massive enclosed paddocks. They allowed dogs to mix together with owners permissions, after introductions etc...

    Pictures Let's See Your Gypsy Cobs 😀

    I’m never sure if she’s a gypsy cob or not, but this is Dolly. 28 years old, and not as hairy as she was in younger days.

    More than 1 'Horse of a Lifetime'?

    I’m only a happy hacker, and I love the absolute bones of Dolly. She is 28 now, and although I have Ollie, who I do love, I have no real urge to ride him. Luckily for me, he is quite happy in the field with your Max, so I don’t have to ride him. Me personally, I am feeling that when Doll tells...

    on lead, off lead, what to do

    Sorry to be “dragging” Bo into a post again, but I have him off lead as much as possible. Never when we do a street walk, but out in the woods, open fields etc. If we see dogs when out, if they are on lead, I pop him on his, if they’re off, I leave him off. On lead, he wants to kill everyone and...

    Glad mr JB is ok. Rocky won’t be able to hurt anyone else, or be hurt himself, it’s the right thing to do. Thinking of you xx
  21. TheresaW


    I’m sorry you feel I was dragging him into the thread. We can only try and share experiences which might help. Yes, he has leash reactivity, but there were many smaller issues as well, which we have been able to overcome luckily. I apologise JB if anything I’ve posited hasn’t been helpful. I...

    Someone that knew where he’d come from and what he’d be going back to.
  23. TheresaW


    I really feel for you JB. I will say, when we got Bo, we were told, if it didn’t work out, we were to take him back before passing him on. He wasn’t anywhere near as bad as Rocky, but a few times I felt “what have we done”? Quietly, I was asked, rather than take him back, would we please PTS...
  24. TheresaW


    I don’t know if this is relevant, but when we first brought Bo home, he followed me absolutely everywhere. I couldn’t even go for a wee, he would sit at bathroom door and cry. We started me taking Luna to horses with me, and OH would walk Bo out and about on his own. I’d say he’s still more...

    Alternatives to Millie’s Wolfheart

    We switched to wolf of wilderness a while back from MWH. What have they done?

    Why do some sellers lie about their horses breed.

    Dolly has a Wetherbys passport. She’s definitely a coloured cob 🤣 I know very little about TB’s, I guess it would be a different passport?

    Assisting Decision-Making on Age of Neutering for 35 Breeds of Dogs: Associated Joint Disorders, Cancers, and Urinary Incontinence

    We neutered Bo because A, it’s what we did when I had dogs at home way back when, and B, he is a much happier dog off lead, and didn’t want him running after entire females out and about. I know what was says about training, but he was a 4yo when we got him, and had (as I found out later)...

    I know Bo was nowhere near as bad as Rocky seems to be at the moment, but we were told when collected him, if it didn’t work, to take him back. He didn’t come from the nicest place, and I was told quietly, if we couldn’t cope, would we PTS rather than send him back. It’s not always the worst...
