    Bank Holiday Double Ton

    I don’t even get that number in a season! Not many birds in inverness Shire!!! quick question on why you now use steel shot, is it because you supply the pigeons to falconers? I would be happy to use steel but I don’t think there is a fibre wad steel cart and I am not keen to leave plastic wads scattered about the field. I have heard stories of stock eating them and coming to harm but how truthfull these events are I am not sure. your weekly updates are a great read for the pigeon less north so thanks for your weekly instalments.

    Dogs fighting

    At the moment we are managing the situ. Any time the older dog starts to growl he gets told off and sent back to his bed in the utility room, younger dog stays in the kitchen out of the way of his own accord. They now get fed separately, older one outside younger one inside. The growling still occurs but is when they both come into the utility room from being out and about. Usually settles down and they are then happy together, even playing at times. If the older one starts to growl again the young one always tries to escape the situ by hiding under the kitchen table or moving to the other end of the room. The vet gave advice and said that we should still try and treat the older dog as the top dog as that is what he wants to be and the young one is happy to defer to the older one so we are doing that, she also said to make sure the older one gets plenty of attention as he is probably feeling left out. Cone off and stitches out so we will see where it goes from here!

    Dogs fighting

    Ok so it's getting worse now! The older dog had a go at the young one in the car on the way back from roost shooting. The younger one put a small cut above the older dogs eye but it seemed ok so left it. Today old one was in the house while young one went out with the kids in the garden. They all came in and old one had another go at young one, result is that original cut is now bigger and swollen so of to the vets and £200 lighter for it. Old dog comes back from the vet and starts growling and having a go at young one again. Young one scared and trying to keep out of the way. Can't see any more options than trying the castration route for the older one.

    Hay or straw

    The straw was rubbish. Hay binds together nicely, straw was far too loose so didn’t use it.

    They still go at it but I am trying to let the older dog know he is in the wrong. The young one is still scared of the older one half the time then they play half the time! I think the older dog is also just hacked off with the younger bouncy dog in his space plus his eyesight is not what it was and we do wonder if he has a bit of dementia. Cheers for asking

    Todays Roost Shooting

    Two pinks this morning and 5 pigeons for 5 shots in the wood this evening so I am well pleased. I hardly get any pigeons this far north, 8 is the best I have ever had on a roost shoot so 5 is a great bag and far better than last week when I never even got a shot

    Hay or straw

    I have always used hay in the duck nesting tubes we have. However I have been given some straw, is it any good for the tubes? cheers flipper

    Thanks for all the replies. Looks like he will keep his nuts which is a good thing as he is 13 and I didn't want to put him through that! Interesting what Walker570 says, implying that basically I have not been dominant enough. There may be some mileage in this as I have let the dogs have a go at each other in the hope that they would sort out some dominance order themselves but this hasn't happened. Maybe I should wade in now and lay down the law 100% Thanks for the advice Cheers Flipper
