Re: Airedale and Chickens

Have taken Tuppence down to the chickens two more times and she is being really really good. She already knows that pulling on the lead gets her nowhere and have had her within two feet of the chickens, she just sat patiently watching them, when she stood they moved away but the goldlines, especiall...

Re: Airedale and Chickens

Thanks for your replies,gives me food for thought, I'll continue with the socialisation and see how far i can get with it then. 'Surely you can let them out a bit when the dog is safely indoors? - and then let her have her run in the garden when they're back in their run?' Your quite right Marigold,...

I took her down to the run yesterday, very comical with the chickens puffing themselves up to the max when she approached on the lead, later I took her into the run in my arms and tod...

Re: Red Mite in Green Frog - Update/Perch Alert

Well despite what I said I have contacted Green Frog today about the risk from the perches and they came back very promptly to me with this reponse. 'Thanks for letting us know - it is very frustrating that the perches are manufactured with the gap in the end. Apparently, this is unavoidable, though...
