Re: update on Bracken and questions

that's true, but she was used to living with 2 other dogs and does enjoy interaction with other dogs so the pup is being thought of partly for her, as i think she would enjoy having a do pal

Re: Any asssistence greatly appreciated.. =/

Hi not very experianced with dogs but have rehabed other animals but your boy has only been with you a couple of days and I think you are maybe expecting too much from him at this point.

Re: Labradoodle x german wirehaired pointer

it's my friend who owns both dogs . A working dog type is fine by me as my vizsla requires lots of exercise when she's not out hunting with my hubby and as both dogs have fantastic temprements and are good dogs if she bred them we may be interested in getting one, Thanks for that info

Licking dog

Hope someone can shed light on this. bracken licks herself frequently and it's not just the important little places, she will lick her legs, chest and anywhere she can reach. It's not frantic quite methodical, in fact ! She will also lick any part of me if she can, be it bare skin or clothes. I have...
