Is this Serious?

We got ben when he was 5 weeks old and he didnt eat much on his first few days and he had a bit of diarrhea. He was due to go to the vet for his shots anyway so we said it to the vet and she gave him an anitbiotic injection and sent him home again. There wasnt much change and we were in the pet shop...

Deciding on a Trainer

Sorry to be a torture but i'm wondering what all i should ask a trainer to find out their methods of training. Im meeting a lady next week regarding training and i want to make sure that she only follows positive reward based training and not dominance training.

Re: Major UK Pet Food Brands - Who owns which

Did anyone hear anything about BETA dog food? We get the chicken and rice flavoured kibble for Ben and mix it with a little wet food as he would rather starve than eat the dry kibble. We use the Pedigree chunks in gravy. Ive heard Pedigree is not actually very good but unsure as to how true this is?...

Re: New Brother

I didnt realise until it was too late that he shouldnt be taken away from his mum and litter mates until he was at least 8 weeks old. We got him at 2 days off 5 weeks old and ...

We dont want him to be too old for the new pup and therefore them not be able to play together but we dont want to introduce the new pup too early either. We want...
