    Default camping trip antics pulled by the brood

    Rather an eventful and non tranquil turn of events during camping. Arrived at sundown, after a heck of week at work and in need of RnR. Bernie exploded with diarrhoea from his crate. Had been holding it on trip there bless him. Then proceeded to act like a incontinent unhouse trained dog, going near tent entrances, coz he had no control. It was explosive. So 24hr starve, free access to water care plan for him. His runs were explosive, and he made a mess in the camp area, easily cleared up, not reacted to by the humans. Lots of TLC given. < mistake perhaps? He got very upset with things, knowing he'd had an accident. And kept having more accidents.
    I scrounged some loperamide from the owner of property, and had to dose him twice before runs stopped. So then could be less distressed, less spreading poo around the place, trying to move out of the camp area as it ran from him.
    He's very skinny today. But bounced back, has rice in stock for tea. We'll see how he goes.

    And Pohm busted her leg at the end of day 1. Old injury, plays up when she plays and has fun.
    So, no bush walking on 2nd day. But she had a ball on day 1.
    She's was unable to put foot to floor by end of day 1, toe tapping today. 24hrs rest. and ? dose of her pain killers crushed and hidden in pilchards tummy, she promptly regurgitated, just the tablets! HOW?

    2 days off of nursing, and Im nursing the pooches, and on clean up duty. Great, now so ready for my 7 shifts in a row stint. NOT.
    now, remind me again, i upload to photobucket, then post what kind of link? I"ll pop some photo's up.

    if photo bucket gives you an [ img ] tag you can paste that straight in. or use the icon, third back from the right, not the bubble, not the movie, but the thing with four dots, one in each corner. And then just paste the link to the jpg or whatever.

    Or just paste links. Being a poster of long standing - you can post links without having your post only visible to moderators who don't notice it needs approval (sorry newbies).

    We are taking Asha camping for the first time this weekend, we are packing a little lighter so her crate can come this trip (she is already in a 42" crate!) so hopefully she settles well overnight and doesn't feel too cold (I don't want her to be on our bed unless it's necessary as it's something she doesn't get to do at home - But I might get soft and let her.)

    We have all the gear required for "glamping." Blackwolf canvas tent (best investment ever!) tent heater for taking the chills out before bed when it's really cold, hot water bottles etc - She will get a hot water bottle under her blanket - I just won't make it super warm in case the worst happens and she puts a claw through it)

    Should be an interesting training weekend!
    Asha - 22/05/15 Wolfhound cross a Dogue De Bordeaux X American Bulldog.

    Schnecke, i have that sized crate, and Brian @ 50+ kg fit, my friends english mastiff, comes for doggie sleep over twice a year. Its his country holiday, as he's a town dog, loves it here. Loves the crate.
    Camping is a excellent training opportunity, its just, the 'opportunities' are laid out before your pup by others. ie. outside of your control. So vigilance, is paramount, as you only want the good experiences for your pup. And you're required to shape the experience, for the good.
    Camps have provided me n mine with masses of lessons:
    tie out
    down stay
    Here
    Crate
    loose leash walking
    meet other dogs
    meet animals
    meet rivers
    meet swimming with us, with others, with screaming children, oh such fun!
    meet old people with walking sticks, and try telling your goofy pup, that this stick is not going to be thrown, even though the old git is waiving it at you lol
    meet people with intellectual disabilities, and have your pup do some socialisiing with them. Bernie took a particular liking to a boy with autism, no speech. And the affection was mutual.
    Meet snake: i trained bark and sit at heel with food, he was a guts back then
    Meet stupid man, who had a GSD when he was growing up, comes bounding up overly confident and imposing, and scaring the shit out of bernie pup. Had to have him feed bernie cranskies by hand, to counter train out the mistake, guy was willing. Took 2 days, before pup would strain on leash, when he saw stupid man, who i just passed a cransky to, to feed bernie. < that's what i mean, by you dont get to choose the environment. Its dodgy, and filled with plonkas.

    But overall, camping has been a LOVE for my dogs. Especially riverside!
