  1. It really sounds like SA to me, and if the little mite is anything like one of ours, just leaving him to cry won't help We tried everything too, but she just likes having her people. She doesn't take any kind of separation, even now, with a baby gate separating rooms she gets anxious. She's physically chewed her way out of three metal crates to try and find us Leave him with his comforts, try recording yourself talking for a few minutes and play it on loop? Leave something that smells of you. Separate yourself from him while you're home. Shut yourself in a different room, don't make a fuss, just leave him with toys etc and leave the times longer. Extended to actually leaving the house. You have to start really small. He just loves his people! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. So pleased that everything came back clear for you and Logan! X Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I wasn't keen !!! Maybe had too high expectations? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. So sweet!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. They're so clever, it's really wouldn't surprise me if they thought this intricately! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Lol! I think it was the other way around for Mishka! We got her when she was 8 weeks, when we lived in Epping, and literally couldn't walk her without being stopped by EVERYONE so they could pet her. I think she still thinks everyone just wants to pet her and tell her how pretty she is [emoji23] She's such a people dog. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I mean ... The not eating thing is an every day occurrence in our house. It was my mission not to free feed. Bowls are left down for 15 minutes and if they haven't eaten it comes back up. If it's up and they get hungry, they mouth at me until I give in and give it to them. If they don't mouth, they go with out. It's not something that I worry about. And the sleeping in your bed, again is something normal for me. You know your dog and just because it's normal for us, doesn't mean you shouldn't get him checked out. If you're worried, it's always better to be safe? Just get him checked over? Keep an eye on him for a day or two and if you're still not happy pop him to the vet? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Ah! It seems Snowy isn't starting to settle after all!!! (should've read this post before replying on the other thread[emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]) Ours are 2 at the moment and seem to have settled slightly!!! One of them does refuse to come in from the garden when called, but I just shut the door on her and get the others treats. She soon comes running!!! The distruction has *touch wood* come to an end. I think it's more management on our part as opposed to them maturing though, sorry!!! I guess it's just finding a balance that works for everyone? They can be little terrors! I sometimes wonder what on earth possessed me! But then they're all so cute!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Although we don't live extremely rural ( we live on the edge of a village) I generally tend to walk around the outskirts of the village or down the country lanes to avoid 'traffic'. So I guess when we do see people and dogs etc it is quite exciting for them, so I know where you're coming from! Glad that Snow was good! Hopefully he's starting to settle??? Ours are loopy at the moment, and so strong! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. No, it wasn't the nicest. Luckily I wasn't there to see it happen and I was very young but it was still horrific. Our dog, Butch; a staffy, had been trained to wait for whoever was walking him to actually start walking before he would move. The day he got run over, my dad and my sister were coming back from the woods and they were crossing a busy road on a bend. My dad stepped into the road to check for cars. Butch took it as a cue to move My dad was distraught. But it just goes to show you need your dogs on a lead!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Yeah I've heard so many horror stories about retractable leads. They seem a good idea, but in practice I fail to see it. Lol I can just imagine it. People are so ignorant sometimes [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] I bet she knew her dog was causing the commotion too! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I just hate seeing it! The busy main road is what always gets me. I mean, it makes me feel sick! Okay, their argument is that they trust their dog etc. What if he saw an accident about to happen, the dog is in the path. They can do nothing! The car is spinning toward him and all they can do is watch. Frightens the life out of me I just wish people would think it through before they 'train their dog off lead'. Retractable leads are also a pet hate! Nobelhowluc49 I'm sorry for your loss [emoji174] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I was just wondering whether you have the same regard to other dogs being off lead as you have for huskies??? Our family dog was never on a lead, I mean never! He got run over, wasn't killed, and still was not put on a lead. Since growing up and getting the girls, who are obviously never off lead, I seem to have made up my mind about all dogs off lead. I don't believe that dogs, any breed, should be walked without a lead. You just never know what's around the corner!! I was curious to find out your thoughts? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. This is, sadly, what I've come to realise. Not only a mission, but I'm scared for them now. If one of them gets off, that may be it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Thank you for your suggestions Carly. We have Cannys for all three of them, but they seemed to prefer the gentle leader so we kept them on those. (The gentle leader is one of the harnesses she broke though, so I'm reconsidering!) I'll be sure to start with her tomorrow! Clare, it's so so frustrating, isn't it? They're socialised with other dogs, they get a lot of human attention so it's not like they don't know what it is Joggers seem to be her favourite at the moment!!! She really goes for it with the bunny hops too hahaa! I wish she would just remember I was there when we are outside though! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
