Re: Non definitive assessment of the HPR breeds.

A great waste when you think about it. If we’d used our pointers and setters to retrieve, LIKE THE REST OF THE WORLD does, :lol: we’d have developed our own range of HPRs by now and wouldn’t have needed to import them. Conversely, we could have nurtured the pointing instinct in spaniels instead of ...

Re: Overshot jaw

Return it asap! It's of course your choice to pay whatever you like for a puppy but regardless this puppy should be sold to you in good health (should have been vet checked by the breeder before selling it) and without any (known) faults and since overshot/undershot is clearly visible, this puppy sh...

Re: Pup Inoculations.

A rather sad story and I wondered if this has happened to anyone else as I seem to recall hearing something along the same lines. A friend recently bred a litter and arranged with all of the the buyers except one to get the first vaccination done before they collected them, he checked that the buye...

Re: Puppies

Snap! It's been a few years since I last bought a puppy in from another breeder and it's sooooo tiring :roll: :roll: I find it much easier whenever I've kept a puppy back from my "own" litter as it already knows the big dogs and the routine. Nevermind, the puppy is here now - it seemed like a great...

Re: Picking up dogs

But it's just about impossible to get the balance right on a proper picking up day, Wullie. Naj I disagree, you can get that balance however, when running a team of picking-up dogs I find that some (type) of dogs are better suited to be doing sweeping only where as some dogs take very well to be ex...

Re: TICKS

There are a few imported tick borne diseases starting to appear in the UK, courtesy of the idiot rules of the EU. https://www.vets-now.com/pet-care-advice/tick-borne-diseases-in-dogs/ What idiot EU rule would that be? the one that says that you can't bring in any dogs to the UK unless it has a pet ...

Re: Puppy registration

If done the 'old' paper way then whenever you mate your bitch the stud dog owner will then provide you with the filled in form which has to have the stud dog owners name, address, contact details, the stud dog's KC name & registration (or stud book) number, date of mating plus it HAS to be signed by...

Feeding of our working dogs - requirements.

As the shooting season is soon upon us, the article below gives a good idea about our working dogs nutritional requirements. Please note that the dogs require more Kcal's when working in warm/hot weather so take that into consideration. Also note that sprinting dogs (like Greyhounds) have very diffe...
