Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Congratulations on impending auntiehood, ZaraD :D I'm not sure there was any need to apologise to the saluki's owner - it takes two to tango, and she did come over and seduce Sampson :wink:

And then there's the other side of the coin - 'But your dog's muzzled, he couldn't harm mine so let him be' :roll:

:lol: That's when you need to brace your knees and keep your elbows well in. Don't even think about trying to dodge to one side at the last moment :wink: Jasper, and in my experience other sighthounds, will reliably pass you with a hair's breadth of clearance... as long as they're not looking over t...

Re: Just wanted to warn other members.

Next time, try going back a page - you can often get back to what you've just typed and copied it from there. Also, when you log in, there should be something like 'Keep me logged on' - if you tick that you shouldn't get logged out, though it can happen.

I don't know how his timing is because he isn't using the clicker as a marker or anything :lol: I interpreted it as 'You haven't eaten me at any point in the last 5 minutes :lol: I think he may also have used the clicker to get their attention at the start too - could be wrong though as I was conce...

I'm half-watching Jurassic World. The dinosaur trainer's clicker-training timing is RUBBISH!! :lol:

Re: How much does she need?

According to this website http://www.dalmatianwelfare.co.uk/living-with/exercise/ ' At least an hour of exercise, once or preferably twice a day should be a minimum for an adult Dalmatian. Some of that time should be spent off the lead, free running.' According to the PDSA, they need 'over two hours...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

That's brilliant, Nettle, thank you :D Jasper was very on edge this morning. The reason? His mince was a bit too on the livery side. He ate it, but he kept giving OH dirty looks, and ate the veg first. He didn't turn nasty, but when OH stood up he did jump up on him and grab his arm. I can understan...

Re: Ready made raw feeds

It's frustrating, isn't it? Here's another kibble that's worth a look: https://bentleysdogfood.co.uk/ BTW, when you try new foods, are you changing him over gradually? Not that it's relevant when you're just trying to find something he likes, but changing over too fast will affect the 'output' - I t...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Talk of EmmaBeth's Charley Weasel and saluki recall has reminded me... my friend has had her rescue terrier foster (she swears he's not staying...) for a couple of weeks now and the other day she said he was a little s*** because he didn't come back when he called (she's lovely really, and is very k...

Re: Ready made raw feeds

When you say his poos are softer than you like, how soft are they? Can you pick them up easily enough, or are they more splats? I just wonder whether they could be 'normal for him'. I've never managed to perfect Jasper's poos, but I've settled for 'good enough'. I can't remember - have you tried sli...

Re: Introducing... Charley-Weasels!

How's recall training going? I long for a saluki, but worry I'll be frustrated by their habit of recalling to 6' away from you and then doing that saluki dance to stop you getting them on lead :lol:
