Hi Elizabeth, I liked your comments re crating of your puppy. In my humble opinion it sounds like you have got the balance just right.

Elizabeth, Bella is a Reddins pup then. Reuben is Reddins Romeo. Did you get her from Priscilla and Jim?

Thanks for your comments on my photos.
I agree, crates do seem quite controversial but my dogs would probably still retire to a crate if I had one ou as they like a private den at times. Probably helped with car travel in the early days as well as I can remember my Gordon would object strongly to being left in my Mother's garden as unfortunately he was banned from her house but he would settle straight away in his crate in the back of the car.

Hi, like us new owners learning by baptism of a very big fire. Crates?, we have one but not sure, our boy only gets locked in at nights.

We take Gibson to ring classes in Welwyn Garden City at the Ludwick family centre in Hall Grove not far from the QE2 hospital, Wednesday nights, 8 till 10ish, 2 pounds plus a cup of tea. The people there are very friendly and very helpfull, I think there is also a class in Aston just outside Stevenage but dont know the address, I will find out next week and let you know. I will also ask if anybody knows of any more. We found this on the internet, if you Google in the ludwick family centre all the details are there, hope this helps.

Elizabeth - yesterday's response was more than I should have said.
Perhaps you will understand.We run a big training organisation and I had spent part of the previous day with a trainer who had been working with a young dog. He had "issues" with other dogs. She and the owner were working through a programme - slowly as the dog was quite bad. However the owner decided she wanted to "test" whether the training was working and took the dog to a training class - without telling the class trainer or her behaviour trainer that this was her plan.
The dog went out of control, bit another dog and then bit the trainer and the handler as they tried to rescue the injured dog. The dog has now been put to sleep. When her trainer asked her about her reasons for taking the dog to clas she said because somone on her "chat group" told her it was much better to get the dog out and about to resolve dog issues. Not where or how just do that it worked for me. Not everyone is a discerning owner Elzabeth and if you have a good trainer please give them a chance ! I do hope you will understand that I was angry at the world yesterday and not you

thank you! What I might have said if I had been in a different place yesterday was. If Bella is not neutered has she had her first season yet?

Setter girls are notorious for going a liitle bit "strange" just before they have a season. I think the hormones go all over the place and you might find she is a week or two away.
Whatever you do stay relaxed and dont get upset by curmudgeons!!!

Hiya I saw your progress report on the forum. Looking good! Well done to you both.

The skittishness you describe is looking like hormone cycles. See a pillar today like it, see the same pillar tomorrow "oh my gawd"

She may be some way off a season yet but her hormones are all mustering somewhere ready for the big day.

You will both be fine!

Happy Birthday Elizabeth!!! Tell us how Bella made this day very special!

Hi Liz
a belated happy birthday to you. What a lovely cake you had for your Irish friend, where is yours.
At 3:18am on October 7, 2010, Elizabeth Ball said…
Thank you all for your birthday wishes, sadly there was no birthday cake for me. I find if you leave it to a husband and a dog to arrange one then all you can expect is fresh air. I received new walking socks and a knee-length Waterproof Coat from Bella, I am taking that as a big hint that she doesn't expect our daily jaunts out to stop once the bad weather starts. Clearly when Mr B was purchasing these gifts on Bella's behalf he failed to do a proper consultation as then he would realise how much Bella hates going out in the rain, she even walks round puddles! Time to toughen her up methinks.

Thank you for Holly's birthday wishes x

Many thanks for your B-day wishes Liz, very much appreciated as it was quite a start of the day ... emergency visit to the vet. Since last year, Darwin was strongly suspected to have an internal liver shunt, but the 3 biopsies did not confirm it. First time I saw my dog head facing the wall,,, but it seems it is going much better now, at least he can sleep at night instead of pacing the house and having his head up looking at the sky.

All the very best Liz, thanks again and cuddles to smily Bella  :-)
