My dogs are walking adverts for Ruffwear! Pepper has a Front Range harness too (well, she has two - an old style one and a newer one) and both Pepper & Ellie wear Ruffwear Headwater collars. All 3 went out today with Ruffwear cooling coats on.
I've never used the front clip on Pepper's harness, but I have no doubt it'd stand up to whatever we put it through.
Oh dear boxerluver30, he definitely sounds like he might be overaroused in that situation. Is it the first time he's been in kennels? Maybe the owners weren't aware of how he would find the situation. Poor boy I wouldn't be happy if I thought my dog was acting like that in kennels and I'd definitely be finding a different option if I would be having to leave him again in future.
Bless him, maybe keep a distance from big crowds of people then. That's what I'd do l I think. I know if Ellie won't take food she's too stressed in whatever environment we're in. I had her doing some training at the last fun show we went to as we had loads of space and, unknown to me, I was being watched by a woman who had a trade stand there lol. She came over to say how good Ellie was and how amazed she was that I had her focus in such a busy environment, which was quite nice to hear.
Oh, poor Joe! Even if the vet wasn't too concerned, it'll still have been a shock I imagine. Hopefully the tablets will work.
Urgh alfiemummy, they're awful aren't they? Ellie has only had one too and it was a similar situation. I was stroking her and found what I thought was an odd lump, but when we made her lie down and got a proper look I could see it was a tick and managed to remove it myself with a tick twister! They're such disgusting things >.<
Thanks. I hope it made them realise what they said was wrong.
Rumple’s such a monkey, though dare I say he’s probably better than Millie was at that age! Our main focus really is getting him better socialised and increasing his confidence. That one issue he’s got that I never had with Moo! Im meant to be doing Obedience with her on Sunday, im sure she won’t do anything but we’ll go and Rumple can come along for the ride to get him used to it.
That sounds like good news for Ellie! Hopefully she won’t have any issues. Millie doesn’t help in that she won’t lay down, especially not on her side! She was a bit better yesterday though. She was walking a bit better and she didn’t have any metacam, which seems promising.
Haha, bless him. I'm sure he'll get there soon enough. Is he scared of people or dogs? Or both? Do some of his favourite training exercises/games with him when you're there and he'll see it as a good place I'm sure. Or tell you that he's too stressed to be there if he won't do anything.
I'm hoping not! Oh dear, yeah that won't help but I'm sure she'll lie down eventually. Can you use treats to lure her? Oh that's promising then! Hopefully that will continue to be a regular thing.
Well .... what fun that looked , they certainly looked like they were enjoying it all, some great photos Emma loved the ones at the end , how big were those tyres ? pepper looked dwarfed in it hiw did you manage to get them to stay sat on the wooden stumps x
They did have fun I think! We'll be going again. I think they were tractor tyres so they were pretty big! Both Pepper & Ellie could fit in the middle of the big one comfortably, and there was still room for Cody. The smaller one could only fit one of them at a time. They're pretty good about staying sat where I ask them to now! Treats help, along with the word 'wait' lol. Ellie is the one who will move usually as she's so paranoid she'll miss out on her treat (which, of course, she never does)!
Exactly milliepup04! You're doing your best during a tough time so I would try & ignore them. And maybe your mum hearing and being cross with them might be a good thing. She might tell them that they should lay off you.
Aw, bless Rumple, he'll get there! I guess it's just a massive learning curve for both him and you. Once he's grown out of this phase I'm sure he'll be just as fab as he was before!
I bet! Has she seemed better today? No, they seem to know that whatever the massage therapist is going to do will be uncomfortable but if they manage to get a bit of work done on the problem areas, they're more willing to let more be done. Ellie's been pushed out to 8 weeks now, so she's not back until August (providing we don't have any problems between now & then)!
Poor Panda, unfortunately I don't have any experience with locating patellas either although I know it usually involves an operation. My friend's JRT was suspected to have one but the vet told her that they wouldn't operate unless it was a grade 3 one. Now, I don't really know what that means but his turned out not to be that anyway, it was his cruciate ligament. But I found it interesting that the vets said they wouldn't operate until it was worse/the dog was older.
Sorry to hear you've been having a tough time milliepup04! Hopefully your mum will feel a bit better with the higher dose of meds. I think your grandparents need to remember how young you are, and how much exactly that you have to do in the house while they're not around to help. Does your mum know that they had a go at you? What would she say?
Naughty Rumple! Long line for him again I would say! I'm sure he won't have lost his recall completely, but he's probably getting to that age where he'll start testing you. All dogs go through that stage when they're maturing.
Glad to hear you think you've got to the bottom of Millie's problem though! Now you've found the problem area, Claire can target it and hopefully help ease it. Ellie had a massage on Saturday and was very keen to keep Debbie away from her right knee but with lots of treats and a game, she managed to work on it and hopefully help it. She'd yelped out of nowhere on Friday morning as we got back from the dog play park, so we think she must have tweaked her knee a bit.
I know, I'm gutted! I guess sometimes they need short term staff although from what the girls I met were saying, they could always do with extra hands to help out. But I expect there's a budget which will affect how many permanent staff they can have. They've got one more person to interview on Monday, so I've got to wait until after then to hear anyway. They usually do put on the advert if it's only a temporary job, but I'm positive this one said permanent.

caz2golden: Sorry not on much my PC is sending me around the bend every time I use mouse it double clicks when I only single clicked! Part of me is hoping it is a windows issue that will get updated rather than just PC getting old and broken!

alfiemummy: It's most likely your mouse that needs replacing Caz - that's happened to me twice now and both times it's been fixed by getting a new mouse
