Puppies / Re: Tail docking
« Last post by Finvarra on Today at 04:03:37 PM »
Milo was docked, but my rescue cocker had a tail, and Dylan has his tail. I love his feathery flag  :luv:.

But I wish his dew claws had been removed, like my previous spaniels. They are quite small and curvy, he absolutely hates them being touched and claw trimming is a nightmare. Some of my previous dogs have broken dew claws, it is so painful for them. I'd have all dew claws removed at birth.

General Cocker Spaniel Discussion / Re: Dog Care after Death
« Last post by PennyB on Today at 10:28:44 AM »
My current dogs are all (and most of my cats are) from Four Paws so I would happily have the returned to them anyway (particularly as mine all have their funny and not so funny quirks that I know four paws could handle without prejudice). I am going to make provision though where my house goes to my nieces with the proviso they use some of money to care for my pets so that even though they may go back to four paws money will also go with them too

Working / Re: Hi
« Last post by ips on Today at 10:06:56 AM »
Had a day on oil seed rape on monday, beautiful spring like day  but birds were not in the numbers we expected. Me and a mate shot 33 between us, eze had some good retrieves i gad some good shots and some poor misses on flighting birds as they just would not decoy. Eze was steady to all apart from one which nearly fell into the hide so temptation got the better of her.
Out roost shooting this afternoon, anyone else out working the dog ?

Hi perhaps ask for your dog to keep its tail. I had a show cocker but it was docked already. My dog spent its life with other animals fields horses etc basically out doing what a dog could do in long grass weeds covered in seeds always! Traditionally they were docked but now I think it’s just a tradition? I have come to the conclusion the body part on my show spaniel that hoovered seeds up was its ears but luckily these are left on. I always asked for his whiskers to be left on for “sensing” the same with my horse. So when I see spaniels more with tails on nowadays they all seem pretty fine tails wagging away rather than my dogs stubby missing non tail. Ask for it to be left on.

Well, even the hooman ones don't work for me and I've taken a bucketful (not all at once!).  Maybe I might have more luck with the Fish4Dog ones...  :lol2:

Sounds like a good idea. 

Are they the same dosage?

Don't know Joules, I don't use them myself - Minstrel has Fish4Dogs Mackerel Morsels for Skin, Coat and Joints, easier to give him a biscuit that he enjoys scrunching. Just thought I had seen that other folk do use them.

I think a lot of folk do, and as you say much cheaper specially if you can get to a Holland & Barrett shop whilst their 1p sale is on  ;)
