    The benefits of knowing someone with a herding dog!

    I have sheep dogs I use for trialing and they are obsessed we always said we would get some pinup poster-ewes for my dogs run !! Its amazing when you start them off and they are not interested then one day something clicks and their instincts go into overdrive .I have people come up to me at trials and say how clever we are to train them and I always say that the dogs are 90% instincts and 10% training we just try to tap into what the dog has naturally you cant force them to work !Sorry to hear about your sisters drought we are just coming out of one now its never a nice time :o

    Back from the dead

    Yes planning to keep both at the moment , it takes 12 months to see who will make it in the sheep business or if anyone needs to have a pet home my dad is interested in one (seeing as he lives next door to me I might let him have the girl , although he does have a tendency to spoil his dog something horrid :lol: ) plus I need to convert him to koolies not kelpies :lol:

    Back from the dead

    :lol: Hello everyone its been so long since Ive been on here . Been real busy with my nags and the computer got wormed by that stupid blaster worm (nearly threw computer through window numerous times !!) My bitch has had pups ! Two little spunks , a boy and a girl , who are 9 weeks old , so we have started some serious basic obedience training :o Id forgotten how demanding it was training two babies at once :drinking: They have such different personalities !! Xena (girl puppy) is true to her name the warrior princess , she's really full on and Buddy (boy puppy) is a real thinker kinda quiet but confident at the same time , he follows my every move . I dont know why but I find the males always bond much stronger to me and yet most people say females are more loyal , could just be me i dont know . Anyway will post pictures in proper spot :) :) Must now go and catch up on the posts

    Bloody Bourke!!!

    Hugo's mum your statement is just ridculous its like saying if you take a man and a woman that the child will have the looks of mum but dads personality , what happens if they have the dads looks but mums personality THERE ARE NO GUARNTEES IN BREEDING basicly they are mutts and it takes many generations to get a dog to breed true to type yet you think with one mating its all work out .Sorry if this seems harsh but lets use some common sense :o

    Lucky I hope for your sake the pup doesnt have it I had kennel cough go through my dogs from a dog that I rescued the pup will need to see the vet as soon as possible I dont know which country you are from but here in Australia dogs are vaccinated for a certain strain of kennel cough although of course the strain my dogs got wasnt that one although I did find the dogs that had that vaccination certainly got it less sever than others that had a different type of vaccination your vet will give you antibiotics to treat the infected dog . When the first one was diagnoised we disinfected everything kennels we had the dogs seperated and yet still all the dogs got it . Anyway fingers crossed for you and becareful about washing hands and clothing :-?
