I live rurally, in a nature reserve wetland. I have my back fence, then miles and miles of bush to play in.
But i have lived in QLD, where these dog parks was all i had access to legally. It was not the sort of dog socialising, i welcomed. I loved the friendly people, and love meeting folks, but the dog were bad mannered. And the owners ignorant of dogs.
Ive lived in a city, where all i had was pavements. We did tracking to exercise the dogs.
I have longed to live in a place like i do now all my adult life. I am fully aware of how fortunate my dogs and I are.
(only had one spider bitten dog so far. It survived, but was paralysed for a while hips down) Id carry antivenom, but apparently it is unstable outside of refridgerated, and expires in a fast time. So i have Vitamin C shots to give my dogs if bitten whilst out.
I got the notion from this forum. I cant remember who posted it. Perhaps the mods could find it please?
