Re: soothing your puppy

That really is a good link. I've had so many arguments about this. I never understand why people get tiny puppies and put them in the laundry room and expect them to not to cry.
Thanks for posting :)

Re: Should I be worried about 'fair'?

I think Bax is just being pushy so carry on asking him to wait etc. Its useful for him to learn some manners in case he meets dogs that are less tolerant than Ki.

Can we change the colour of the board?

Is there only one colour for the board. I'm sure it wasn't this pink/mauve colour before or is it my PC.

Leadmate helps you grip the lead

I saw this on another forum when the designer posted asking what we thought of it --- "I have been working on a personal project the past year which is basically a small ball that you attach to your standard dog leash to provide a...

Re: Puppy and toiletting issues

Often pups don't have enough confidence to eliminate from home , you might find she will start eliminating away from home as she grows older .

Is she kept on a lead all the time? Some dogs wont eliminate if they are on a lead.

Re: More Mods?

That's a good idea.
I was a Mod once on a small forum and we were able to delete and edit posts and that was all.
We were all volunteers and never abused that trust and were very fair.
