    springer

    HI Chaps i have a springer dog ,very well bred Sire Moonreed flush out of a nice working bitch. Fromthe day i collected him he was quite nervy , but i followed the usuall training rules i had done with my 1st springer dog ben . At 15 month hes like a rocket when he comes out of the kennel and is so boisterous not noisey but charges around ihave tried calming him i sit with him play with him keep him happy.i know every spaniel is diferent but this boy is testing. i generaly follow David Lissets way of training. Question is having him castrated likely to calm him down or will he calm down when hes older, IMe not to keen on the first idea. I have allways thought if i dont like it he wont . aany sujetions welcome

    Lab Training

    Hi CAB well i thought you were talking about my lab BLUE hes 11.5 months old kennled all day ,dark when i get home ,so training in the evening is a problem so if you have a garden stay there .blue went backwald just the same i thought i was doing things wrong i had read all the good books writen by the best trainers yes ime a newby trainer.there is a 4 film video presented by Mr David Lisett he is the gundog trainner for Buccleuch dundogs buy it now , no ime not on commision. Unlike spaniels lab training starts a bit later so take your time with him keep him close and let him run off that energy. there are a lot of guys on here who know more then i do but they will tell you hes still a pup take your time best of luck Jen shooter

    My dog can hardly walk

    Well i have seen this before its quite common in greyhound racing, its called Acidosis its a build up of lactic acid in the mussels, this can be caused by a number of things,if the dog is not at full fitness or maybe carrying an underlying injury the dog may be off its feet for two days if you give the dog electrolites the day before the shoot then it stops the build up of lactic asid if you get a blood sample within 24 hrs you can test for level in the blood you can buy anti tyeuptablets on the net. cheers jen shooter hope he s better soon.
