  2. Sorry can't help - but I have a question regarding long leads. Tried on several occasions using a very long lead to give Marley some freedom - however he starts off in a straight line at 1,000 miles an hour and does not stop until it pulls tight - which no only knocks him on his backside - but has pulled me over and nearly wrenched my arm out of its socket to boot. I've tried letting it out a bit at a time - but even wearing gloves it hurts.
  3. Almost any raw food is better than canned - sorry I do not know the brand - I get my two boys food from the butchers - but just wanted to say what a beautiful little girl you have there.
  4. Mowgli is sure a delicate eater, Lunar would have devoured that in around 30 seconds, Marley is also a delicate eater - but would still have polished it off quicker!! Have you tried lamb neck chunks, or lamb ribs - a particular favourite of my pair - although the ribs are just for treats, not food as such. 60p a kilo from your butcher - even if they come in a rack you can cut them individually with a sharp knife. Marley went on chicken wings at 12 weeks old and still loves them - the only cooked food he has ever had is scrambled egg as a puppy - but he now prefers his eggs raw, ................. particularly if he can steal them from the chickens nest boxes !

  8. I have photos of Marley showing the same pinky tinge to his fur - and it was caused by dogs saliva - in his case it was because my other dog had his mouth round Marley's throat so much as a pup. Have you noticed her licking the fur at all??? I agree to get it checked out though.

  10. The one I have is an Andrew James one - cost around £50 - I would love an excalibur - but cannot afford one. Once the treats are dehydrated (you'll know because they will snap-break and not bend) I usually put them in a sealable plastic bag or plastic tub and they last easily for three months - although the dogs usually go through a batch in around 2 months. For longer term storage I use an airtight mason jar and kept away from the light - they should keep around 12 months or longer - but the dogs won't let you store them for that long believe me. A decent dehydrator will take around 30-35 hours to dehydrate 5 trays of meat - obviously depending on how thinly you slice the meat to start with, and costs 2p per hour to run. It really does depend on what you are dehydrating - for instance I would not consider trying to dehydrate fish - although I know others who do - the meat does smell a bit, - we are vegetarians so really notice the smell of meat - but I keep the dehydrator in the spare bedroom with the door shut - no problem then with smells when we go to bed - even the dogs and cats are not trying to get into the spare room overnight. I dehydrate vegetables/fruit etc. I give the neighbours a couple of eggs every week from my girls (hens), and every year they give me all the cooking apples off their two trees - I dehydrate the apples and freeze them - then just rehydrate them throughout the year for apple pies etc. One main advantage of dehydration and vacuum-sealing them is that it totally eliminates freezer burn. It is not necessary to keep the apples in the freezer once they have been dehydrated and vacuum packed - I just prefer to do so.
  11. Lunar has quite a few - on his head and neck - the vet wasn't worried about them - its worth getting them checked over just for your peace of mind though.
  12. Marley and also Lunar (a Utonagan) have a problem with some of the treats hubby buys them - they contain wheat - I buy chicken breast, lambs liver and lungs, - dehydrate it into treats for them - they love them and no longer fill the air with their own kind of fragrance - has the added advantage of me knowing exactly what is in the treat i.e. nothing but meat. You obviously love your dog to bits and think nothing of spending good money on him - have you thought of investing in a mid-range dehydrator (around £50) then making their own treats - you know the treats are healthy, with no preservatives or additives, nothing to upset a delicate stomach - and will save you money on overly priced commercial treats.
  13. Marley's transformation took around 9 months
