    Default Some Positives of Katy Being in Season

    Katy has been in Season for the past two weeks....i knew it was on the cards, because she was useless to train.......Could not teach her anything new. And she has been so sookie.

    But there has been a benefit. When we are both home, we each take a dog, meaning Hubby takes Lukey and I take Katy on lead. So that they still have a lot of time with us and no-one is left out in the Kennel all day. The Umbilical system has had some amazing results with Lukey, who is our newest Rescue. he has just learned so much from being constantly on lead. He has gone from a dog you had to concentrate on whilst walking ( could pull a bit too) to just a soft dog on lead, following at heel and easily. It is amazing what so many hours on lead can do for a dog. Katy has always been good on lead, but she is learning to be patient and sit in one spot.

    They have both been great....we are not having puppies, so staying separate is important, only two weeks to go ........I am making sure it is really safe

    My Breeder would like me to....But I would be the breeder from hell. Who would EVER be good enough to have one of my puppies? I would stress and drive the new owners mad (and myself). So I am currently keeping my options open. I have shown my dogs, Obedience trialled them and medically checked/tested them to proof they are good enough. Now I just have to deal with my "problem" LOL........

    Yes, but what do you do when they want to take the little fluffball home?

    My problem is I see so many mishandled dogs. Maybe I should write an exam for them LOL, which they would have to pass

    Or you could get the ball rolling on the "owners need a liscence to have a dog" idea

    Yes my contract would include Puppy socialisation, basic obedience, owner training, training the owner in feeding and grooming of dog.
    I suppose working with my breed Rescue has made me wary. What people say is not always what they do. Even dogs that were expensive end up badly treated.

    I guess - don't breed until there are enough people you know you could let have a puppy - who want one. Either that or let someone else you trust home them - but that would be hard.

    Personally I'd want the homes lined up first. And I'd be just as nutty as you about homing them.

    I was shocked yesterday at the beach when I encountered someone who had two weimeranas, one was happily off lead, the other had a head halter (of the more strappy sort) pulled across it's eye and it's whole face was out of whack.

    I said to the owner "it looks wrong" and she said
    "if he stops pulling it won't be over his eye".

    Needless to say the dog did not stop pulling, clearly it didn't know what it needed to do to get its face back.

    And that woman failed my standard for dog ownership. I don't know if having everybody be my standard or better (not the same as me but at least with half a clue), that there would be far fewer dog owners, or if people who wanted a dog - had to work a little harder to get one - maybe they'd take better care of the dog?

    I so agree...I am such a hard-liner on dog care and ownership. And i don't like dogs to be over loved and treated like humans...they are dogs that need to live with people who recognize them as dogs and allow them to enjoy their dog-life, but give them love, fun and attention. So far I have two wanna bee newfie owners who would pass LOL..........
