  5. Let me know how it goes if you do name him that might take a lot of talking to get her to like it
  6. get used to the shed fur your going to get it twice a year
  7. Take them to small claims court any real proffesonal groom knows you do not clip/shave a husky or any breed with dual coats also report them to local paper/radio/local trader reporting site to get the word out that they are not a place to use
  8. How about Lucifer ..... the pics with him sitting and looking at the cam and in your arms has a devilish quality could go the whole way and call him Lucifer Morningstar
  9. Yes i buy bags of frozen Sprats they are mostly loose in teh bag so you can drop in a handfull of frozen fish sticks and they crunch them just be careful too much fish can cause the squits all the oils
  10. an old tried an tested rule of thumb for dogs weight is you should be able to see/feel the last 3 ribs, run your hands down his sides from his head towards his butt he should have a good layer of meat along his sides until you get to the last 3 where you should clearly feel the bones. if they are covered in meat/fat and you cant feel them he is over weight, if you can feel more under also get him used to going to the vets, go in get them to feed him treats and pop him on the scales and you can pop in once a month or couple of months and keep an eye on his weight Dont get too caught up in it as dogs will go up and down over time, time of year exercise etc can make weight changed a few lbs up and down just aim to get a good base weight and do not worry if he is few pounds over or under
  11. I feed raw and have a standing order once a month they deliver frozen i just had to get a chest freezer to store it, in winter i make my order a little bigger to allow for snow and bad weather delaying a delivery
  12. some addvice find a small room go sit in it take your tablet or a couple books a flask of tea/coffee have a bowl of water in the room and a bag of dog treats just lay back read book use tablet and ignore the dog every 5 mins toss him a dog treat a couple lumps of his food do that for as long as you can 4 5 hours without a break and no one else coming in to see you him etc just ignore him mostly other than a quiet good boy, want a treat but stay on the bed couch what ever with your book

    PD Finn's Law

    What some people may not know is that the criminal that attacked them was charged but he was only given a hand slap punishment for the attack on PD Finn. At the time service animals had no real protection under the law, so they were seen as soft targets for abuse. Infact most police departments did not even bother to record or charge people with the attacks as they were hardley ever prosocuted for them. Police dogs are used to check rooms for bombs and hidden attackers Drug dealers are known to keep dogs that when a police raid happens they let out, dogs that will attack anything that moves man or dog, The criminal runs leaving The police to deal with the dangerous dog in the hopes it gives them time to escape. In the UK until this law those service animals had no real protection or recognition under the law, people tried to get them this protection but the new law was blocked Several times, But Finns handler and now owner fought hard with the help of a group of people to Force the goverment and law makers to give these dogs protection they deserve and now we and they have it,

    PD Finn's Law

    It has been a long time comming but we won and now its law, Service Animals that means Police dogs and horses, Search and Rescue dogs, and even Service/Assitance/Guide dogs now have recognition and protection of law, personaly I think they should have used the American modle that saw the dog as a full officer but it is a start https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-48510975
  15. sounds like some Jelosey issues . Your preggers and he thinks lol he is the dad and dont want your hubby too close
  16. I just try to simulate what they would get in the wild, hence why they even get the odd go hungry day, sounds mean but they are not food driven on one of the odd days where they get no food they are happy not eating also i as in the wild they will never catch the same food every day i swap and change Look on facebook you will find a lot of raw food groups for dogs, ask on them and they will point you at a local supplier and help you out with all the addvice sheets with chicken wings if you feed them raw as a treat i would snip the ends of the sings off with scissors as the bone ion the tip is like a needle cit the point off and toss those in the bin feed the rest of the wings could also see if HappyHounds will deliver of deals with some one close to you
  17. When you run out of room on the bed/sofa
  18. ok i was browsing a shop looking for dog toys and hit on https://www.poundland.co.uk I found they are selling cooked hambones as dog treats as we all know ham/pork products are bad for dogs worse cooked bones they state on the product info """" Ham bone is absolutely ideal to feed as a treat or reward as part of a balanced diet. """" which we all know is not true I contacted poundland and they basicly said we have never had a complain about these. The fact that Vet addvice is never feed these to your dogs means nothing to them I contacted DEFRA and they passed the buck to APHA who passed the buck again to trading standerds. I think it is disgusting that a company can sell a product that is bad for pets to eat legaly even though vet addvice says they should not be eating this product. So could every one phone there MP defra apha ts and make complaints I tried with the RSPCA and they passed the buck saying they couldnt even introduce an awareness campaign about it or talk to any one on pet owners behalf on a side note it appears that this product was withdrawn from sale by the FDA in america as several dogs died from simular bone treats in 2010
  19. hope we get to see the video's this year as we never got to see any from last years

    Wanted dog ball toy

    they are a funny toy they have little spots of texture on the body sticking out are squares triangles and circles. and the squeak and rattle and tinkling bell inside make them different lots of different things to interest them
  21. OK funny request I got one of these toys from B&M a couple months ago and my dogs loved it right until my toy killing shep killed it So could you all check your local store's to see if they still have any of these balls. I would like to get at least three of them. I will pay for them and postage to me They bounce funny when rolled or thrown. They also Squeak and have a rattling bell inside I have looked on Amazon and i can not find them Even a makers name would be helpful
  22. PTSD sucks i currently have a Malinos/Lakenois (2 of the Belgian shepherds in one) as my service assitance dog and they do help make our lives so much better My husky did his best as one but he was too old to do the training the UK is tougher in what dogs can and can not be helpers. But welcome to the group
