Hugo booked for his first groom on 15th Aug - very excited for that :-)
Is he going to be stripped or clipped?

Re: Introducing Schnauzer number 2

Thanks Jo. This wee one will be stripped from the start though it will just be carding twice a week when she first comes home. Just coming back to this....at three months the puppy fluff will start to shed..card away..you should also notice her first wire on the spine coming in... Once a week would...

Re: Safe Dog Play Parks

It's a great idea..wish there were more over here! We have enclosed areas in the city parks,but I won't go in when there is a pit bull and an owner on a telephone.. I have to comment on the lovely uniformity of your breeding...each and every one in the pic are a compliment to your breeding.I do hope...

Re: Determined little girl

I think young pups especially ,live in the moment,so I wouldn't worry about a tiny hiccup.Your daughter is a perfect age to become her best mate..just think ,this pup will see her go to uni ,share her confidences ,I bet they become inseparable.
Ps...we need more puppy pics asthey grow so fast!

Re: Determined little girl

I wouldn't let any other children pick up the pup,( risk of dropping pup) but definitely encourage pup to come to your daughter when she sits on the floor.then pup can get on or off her lap as she wishes .this way they can both get used to each other but not feel overwhelmed..its early days so you w...

Re: Introducing Schnauzer number 2

I grinned at the " another one of the same type" comment...I get the same type of response when people ask me but Why did I get a schnauzer and not another st poodle( my poodle boy is my third in twenty years).. Then they regale me with tales of how tough they are,they bite,they bark you know,and so...

Re: Determined little girl

Hi Karen..I also have a bossy girl...my advice is to be equally determined...nipping can become a habit..so ,I would not tolerate the nipping when you pick her up and definitely not treat her after the event ,even if shes settled down..I would verbally praise for doing well,but nipping/biting is som...

Re: Puppy never relaxes

id like to know if your dog is insecure or assertive? It makes a lot of difference as to the advice I'd give.. Julie's advice is excellent for the first case,however ,I have a very assertive female and I'd take a slightly different route.. Re my dog ,I had the barking on and off for her first year,b...

Re: Introducing Schnauzer number 2

Absolutely gorgeous! and yes,I've already imagined her with a stripped coat,those markings are stunning.
It took mine about three days to really relax around each other,just keep giving Rosie top place.
