toying with a bit of this.
we can already follow a food trail.
as i walk all over my paddocks and horses and rabbits ect do too, i am thinking of dragging a duster around the field to lay a trail with a different smell.
what would be a good thing to make the duster smell of?
myself and lots of friends use frolic as training treats.
it is easy to use as doesn`t crumble, can be broken into smaller pieces,the dogs love it and a bag for about £4 lasts for ages.
now i have heard that is has been discontinued.
wondering what to use now so suggestions please.
got to rant somewhere.....

i have found a group on FB (nail maintenance) and learn that some people are trimming and filing several times a week with the aim to get the nails as short as poss. (it...
my dog has recently had a lump removed from his jowl.
not sure what caused it but have my suspicion that it may have come about from the plastic clip under the nose piece of his Gentle-leader as it is on his right side (I walk him to my left.)
I do need some extra control as he can pull...
i am walking my dogs -my older one is well behaved and my new one is getting there but still a pup as no life before I got him.

my mares SI has not been half so bad this year.
I have used a neem product that I thought worked well but because I have been concentrating on my youngster I have not ridden her this year very much and therefore cut out her alfaA (yellow bag).

just musing here (and I know the rule about if you see a dog approaching on a lead you put yours on unless it is under close call)but if `good` dogs are allowed off lead and ones wanting a bit of manners are not-how do dogs learn to interact with each other?
surely dogs need to learn how to...
if your dog went missing on a walk ,how long would it take for you to get home and get all your dogs details and help fone numbers etc?prob long enough for them to be miles away.

we are no where ready to compete but have done a couple of fun/charity courses.
my question is-if you go to a kc or uka show are the rings edged in single tape :( or a mesh barrier :) ?
(don't think we would be much good in the former.)
i have a friend at work who always asks me about my dog and tells me about her sisters dog. this week she was rather excited to tell me that her sister is going breed the bitch for some `cute puppies` and `extra money` :(((( I was not enthusiastic to say the least and tried to tell her how...
so my rottie has been a little naughty lately in making a B-line for the places where rabbits live on our field walks.
I have been using a harness for the past couple of weeks with an extending lead to give him space but practice our recall.
I do not like extending leads for all the reasons...
