Thank you for above posts, they are much appreciated.
I've had no takers for the Vetoryl so think I will bin them; shame because it's a pricey medication and hoped someone could make use of them.
After having 10 cockers over the last 40+ years I hope number 11 is out there for me somewhere! (even better would be to make it a nice round dozen!). I like to think of them all gathered round me at Rainbow Bridge. Take care and enjoy your cockers. xx

I start giving it yo him in March, it says to start six weeks before the tick season. I stopped it last year around November, they seem to be active here in NE Scotland til then. After that it's too cold for most critters  :lol2: . If it's warmer where you are and ticks are around all year, I don't see how it could hurt to continue, but maybe check with the manufacturer? You could maybe ask them via the Amazon website.

Have you found it works against ticks and fleas?

Have you tried Billy No Mates? The spot treatment make Dylan itch badly, I started using this last year, with no itchy problems, and had no fleas and very few ticks. You have to add it to food, but it smells wonderful,and he eats no problem.
Cheers

Lesly, Can I just jump in and ask how long you give Dylan BNM? Ive been giving it to Humphrey since you recommended it earlier this year -(for ticks ) his coat seems to have improved and, as you say, its smells lovely and he likes it so just wondered if it would be ok to just keep giving it to him all year?

Really sorry to hear about Nina, it is never easy and I don't think you ever learn to deal with it, if that makes sense.  Regarding a new friend, smaller local rescues may be more amenable, it can't hurt to have a chat with them.. Whatever you decide, I hope life improves for you, it has been a rough year.

Puppies / New Puppy Question
« Last post by Rhona on July 26, 2021, 06:11:48 PM »
Hello Cockersonline

It has been a long time since my last post.   My beloved Sam (my profile photo) passed away three years ago at 14 1/2 so its a long time since we last had a puppy.

We are now owners of the lovely Cooper.  He is a 12 week old orange roan.  He has been a great addition to our family.   We have been enchanted by him.   I have a couple of areas I need a wee bit of assistance on and I wondered if Cockersonline can help.

1.   My daughter is 22 and she and Cooper are great friends.   She has worked so well with him.  Not only training him with voice but also by hand signals.  He has now got really rough with her and jumps and snaps at her often.   No one else is getting the same level of roughness.  When he snaps or jumps she says no and turns her back on him and either walks away or sits out of reach.  He is persistent though and rips at her clothes.  She is not being rough or provoking him.   Any suggestions?

2.   Chewing.   We have been very lucky and there has been no destruction of anything.  He chews his crate and the edge of metal stools in the kitchen.   Should this be discouraged?   We were going on the basis that he was chewing at nothing of value but should all chewing be discouraged?

He has been really good.  Sleeps all night from day one and is toilet trained.  We are in love x

Sorry to read about your loss of Nina, each dog leaves their mark on us I think, and the healing time varies.

With regards to the re-homing, with all the Coronovirus issues (dogs being given up that were bought in last year or so and now 'not needed - or wanted) you may find that the centres would be more than happy to consider you as a potential adopter,  worth asking anyway.
