Re: Shedding

Here in Spain the BIG shed started about two weeks ago (Mid Feb). They are both shedding like crazy and due to all ceramic tile floors, every day bring huge dog hair "tumble weeds" drifting over the floor. A rubber brush deals with it best, vacuums just clog up too quick. We love the furminator and ...

Re: Tamaskan Climate

I was really worried about moving my two tamaskans from North of Scotland to Spain but they have coped brilliantly. They are both young fit dogs which helped a lot. Our boy loves the heat, back home he would always lie out in the sunniest spot or curl up indoors in the warmest softest fluffiest plac...

Food rewards works wonders in a training environment and sometimes I give and sometimes I don't. However, that interest doesn't hold outside...

Re: Greatest friend ever

Sounds like a fantastic companion Richard and you've obviously done a really really good job with Cody. Our local allows dogs too but mine would cause utter chaos!

Re: Hello from Spain

Thanks for the lovely welcome from everyone! Yes they seem to cope fine with the heat, I was a bit worried about that at first. Dakotah (my boy) loves nothing better than to bask in the sun. Tala our girl is a bit more wary of the heat and will stick to the shade. We are careful to walk them in the ...
