Our Chesapeake has got serious tum problems that could kill him if we are not careful and the only food that keeps him right is Chappie. It always used to be recommended by vets for tum problems before they could make a mint out of selling food from the surgery
My vet recommended that I should give at least 1200mg glucosomine and 800mg condritin for Alf who is 34kgs
That’s great news, if you think about it, it has only been six weeks so far. You and your wife must be working very hard to sort this out. Well done
Hope you have a lovely xmas and happy new year
Brilliant news, as long as it’s getting better that’s the main thing.
I hope you and your wife feel a little better than when you last posted.
Hope you have a good christmas and a pull free new year Haha
Go on as much as you like Walt. I for one am always looking for your updates. I’m really pleased to here that there has been a little improvement. Keep up the good work and telll the wife we are wishing her well with the work she has in front of her
Why does it have to take until animals suffer before anyone acts. Nobody is there to check on these places unless they are given proof of cruelty or neglect
Your dogs seem to have loving owners. I’m sure that’s more important than a few missed walks. Don’t feel guilty
Something I forgot to mention earlier. Some of the WHV’s seem to have soft silky coats instead of the normal, these dogs seem to have more of a tendancy to skin problems.
As always, buyer beware
Maybe she has worked out what is going on now, what about sometimes not turning but just standing still until she comes back to the right position, also when Alf got a little better, I would make him do a circle around me with myself standing still. Like an obedience finish,I would not move until he was in the right position.
All this worked for me and mine used to almost pull me over when I first got him, but it took a long time
Sorry don’t know. Not many dogs eat oranges
I hope you find enough people to pre book your pups, as you sound just the type of person who should be enhancing the breed.
I am sorry if my previous posts upset you. I am not the most eloquent as you have probably noticed
It’s not Sue, she asked the question and is agonising over the problem. I am trying to give another perspective on some of the advice that I have seen given
I wasn’t making a personal attack just trying to give my opinion.
Another opinion of mine, and I’m sorry if it offends anyone, is, What is more important, winning at a show or the future of your puppies
Aren’t there enough dogs needing homes. Unless you have homes lined up isn’t it a little irresponcable to breed at the moment
Sounds exactly like mine when I first got him at 20months, except for the aggression. Amazing isn’t it watching a dog go head first into a five bar gate or wire fencing? worrying to.
I was lucky that I had somewhere really safe to walk to start off with and we just walked there until he had settled, a bit boring but worth it. Have you nowwhere like this?
I had always intended to take mine to work as I work on a nursery (plants not kids). I put up a secure kennel. Is this a possibility for you, if he can see the chickens/cats regularly hopefully he will calm down with them.
Though being a spaniel his whole being is about hunting
