I never knew an animal could malt so much and I hate it, it gets everywhere. I really should have done some research. I have no Idea how often I should be grooming her either. If I didn’t have my trusty vacuum cleaner I think she would be spending most the time in the garden. I was advised to get a Furminater so I went to our local pet shop to try it out for myself before buying one as they are quite pricey. I couldn’t believe how much hair I got from her it was enough to coat another dog no wonder it gets everywhere, I decided to buy one but now I struggle brushing her because she tries to eat the comb as I am combing her, I cant win 🙁
my garden is covered in shit smears from her runny poo because we can’t pick it up in one go because of it being like slush. We have taken her to the vets twice now regarding her poo’s and the number of poops she has in a day and we were advised to change her food. After lots of research, we decided to go for Millies Wolfheart, It turns out the food we were giving to her originally has a few ingredients she could be intolerant too like grain and chicken etc. With this new food, it is 70% Lamb, Duck with Rabbit and 30% Vegetables/Fruits/Herbs/Botanicals so now she is having high meat and high protein quality nutritional diet. Fingers crossed for solid poo soon.
I really dislike walking her because she nearly detaches my arm out of the socket with all the pulling she does and when she see’s another dog or person she just wants to play and jump up and say hello. We currently use a 5metre flexi lead or a short lead with resistance to filter the pull. We are looking into a Halti to see if we can gain control more. Please, any advice is welcome please leave a comment.
Apart from all the negatives above she is my gorgeous furbaby and as much as she pisses me off chewing the heads of Emily’s Moana dolls and everything else in sight and eating her £35 Skechers shoes we do all love her so much, She is very affectionate, I love her cuddles when I fall asleep on the sofa. She is a big softy.
Also, we are on the hunt for a dog kennel for the garden and a good dog bed and toys. Please leave recommendations below in comments
