Terrible teens

Hi all, Me again! This new pup of mine / going to a multi dog household has certainly been a learning curve! So, Berkeley this time. Now just over 10 months, the humping has all but stopped (hurrah!) but of course this means he has reached maturity and his behaviour has started to change and as with...

An unpleasant incident

Hi all, I think I am looking for a mixture of advice and reassurance here that a) my dogs are not aggressive, b) I am not a terrible owner and c) I have interpreted this situation correctly. Before I go any further and I would never normally do this, but could I ask you to be gentle with me as I am ...

Re: Overly amorous pup.......HELP!!

Hi Nettle Thanks very much for your expert advice which I have implemented to the letter and I am pleased to say things are much improved. He has his humpy toy (pug / unicorn type thing from Tesco), I got the spray and separate them as and when I have to which I am pleased to say is now much less fr...

Overly amorous pup.......HELP!!

Hi all Help please! The first thing to say is I have never owned a male dog before, I have only ever had bitches, so please forgive my ignorance and bear with me. My pup Berkeley has just turned seven months old and literally in the last week seems to have discovered that he is a boy and also that B...

Re: New kid on the block

Hi nettle Thanks so much for that. I did my research before bringing him in and have tried to do everything by the book so to speak but it's nice to hear that what I'm doing is right. I have tried it the other way around but MIT with the high value treats as you suggest so I will give that a whirl i...

New kid on the block

Hi all Its been ages since I have been on here so a quick bit of background / context. I rescued a six month old American Bulldog (Bella) about two and a half years ago and she's awesome. Three weeks ago I rescued a 3 month old American Bulldog male called Berkeley. Bella has always been extremely p...

Fear aggression / panic

Hi all A bit of help please if you would as I have had a bit of a disappointing incident last night and would like your thoughts. When I say disappointing by the way I am disappointed with myself not Bella as I feel that I pushed her too far too soon. Briefly, Bella has been with me since April and ...

Bella puts the brakes on!

Hi all Bella baby bulldog (aka Belle-dozer) 😂 has now been home for two weeks and she is doing incredibly well and has settled in brilliantly. The only issue we have at the minute is when we first leave the house for a walk she is very reluctant and will slam on the brakes and often just sit. I have...

Rescuing for newbies

Me again Think I am going to be on here a lot over the next few weeks! So as the title suggests, I have never had a rescue before and as such would appreciate any tips or advice from all of you that have. Basically my plan for the first couple of weeks (which I have booked of work so I can be with h...

Re: Diet post anal pro lapse

Hola Ems and Nettle! Long time no speak!!  Thanks for this. In answer to your questions they have told me that this is her only issue and the only reason why she is on a special diet.  I have no idea what caused the prolapse in the first instance (nor do they) but I am sure if there was anything els...

Diet post anal pro lapse

Hi all For those that remember me, its been a while I know but times were a bit tough after losing Ellie. :cry: However, devastated though I still am, I have decided that life without a dog is just unbearable, so as of 11 April 2017 I will become 'mum' to a six month old rescued American Bulldog cal...

Re: Losing your best friend

Thanks Erica And that's lovely. If I were settled homewise I might do the same, but I am a little more transient and therefore the jewellry appeals as no matter where I go or end up, she's with me. Nonetheless the practicalities are precisely that and the sentiment the same. I have to say that it is...

Re: Losing your best friend

Thank you both for your kind and wise words. Nettle - you are spot on. I don't want 'another dog' I want her and I can't have her because she's gone. It would be unfair to get another dog so quickly as they wouldn't replace what I had with her and therefore through no fault of their own, they would ...
