Excellent. I shall put it on my Christmas list for her.Very yes, he's had a lot of love and he's lost his ears and had to be sewn up a coup[le of times but the fact it's still in roughly one piece is impressive.
That said I think if he wanted to rip it apart as he's proven with numerous rope toys, he absolutely could.
they're so cute!Thanks! She's a 7yrs/old Cockapoo and is my daughter's dog but she lives with me mostly unless my daughter decides to take her visiting friends. My own dog is also a Cockapoo - that's Hazel who's 2-1/2 yrs/old now, but I also get to look after our 15 yrs/old Cairn Terrier. They kind-of all get along lol, but there's some drama at times. Hazel will be in season again in around 4 weeks and we'll try mating her again, it failed last time.

His point needs a bit of work but he's starting to get the hang of it! And a dog whistle is absolutely amazing for recall. I've had him recall trained from very early on which he was as good as gold with; but as he's been getting bigger we're happy to let him wander a bit further and while I don't have much issue with projecting my voice far, the wife struggled. The whistle is even better than what I had before with him, it just cuts through any sounds and he stops what he's doing instantly and bolts back. Really good confidence boost as we like to walk him off lead on weekends when we go out on trips, lets him stretch his legs a bit compared to lead walking!
I bet they do!Cheers he is, very!
Wife and kids now want one ....
Thankfully his lead walking hasn't been horrendous, if we front clip his harness he's usually fine at our normal walking pace; but clip it to his back he'll be pulling all day long. A little annoying as it means my mum can't now walk him due to her weak knees as he's just too strong for her (and he's still under 20kg! Just...). We're still working on "greeting" other people and dogs when off-lead as he can act a little reactive towards dogs - he's actually just very confident and super super sociable and wants to meet and play with everything and everyone - the "fear" stage never happened with him, the silly git. However not everyone wants an excitable dog running up to them. He's getting better at it but it's a slow process, thankfully we're getting quite friendly with some other dog owners in the village so if we come across each other we can have a little practice. But we try to have him off lead for one of his walks a day at least, and we're always out at least one day of the weekend with him for a bigger walk, either the beach, Thetford Forest etc, quite a lot near us that doesn't take too long to get to. Though I'd appreciate it more if he could settle and sleep on the way to wherever we're heading, not just the journey home!Another Viszla owner here who has struggled to enjoy walking mine on lead.
She's about 16 months old now.
She's fantastic off-lead. Always comes back, doesn't really bother anyone else (unless they want to interact then she is very friendly)
I've had her since a pup though and on lead is not much fun.
She was in season recently and got more used to it as she had to be on a lead for about 3 weeks, and she knows how to heel.
Late spring/summer/early autumn is a wonderful time as she can have two walks a day and be let off both times.
But now the clocks have gone back and it's dark early, walking her on lead of an evening is no fun.
She is still quite wary of traffic after a bad experience as a puppy (somebody drove past with one of those banging/popping exhausts which sounds like a firework) and still on the main roads she tries to 'run' away from cars down the street. She's too small to be able to pull me but it's still not pleasent.
She's fine with cars going past at low speed, and I've tried giving her treats everytime one does go past but she often gets to a fear stage where she won't even take a treat.
Any luck with the pulling Matt ?Hello, we've been trying to contact you to talk about your cars extended warranty...
