Looks like we've finally found a raw food and homeopathic remedy that works for Rosco and helps to control the chronic bloating. These last few days he's in bounding form and back to the cheeky and…Continue

Irish Sleddogs Get a Taste of Sweden

Irish Sleddogs Get a Taste of Sweden

So our adventure to Sweden was planned nearly a year ago. It all seemed so unreal at that point and now we were finally starting the journey. We were on an adventure, across the UK and Denmark — from Co. Donegal, Ireland, to reach Camp Dannevall in Krokom, Sweden. Camp Dannevall is a place where you can take…

Rosco’s Bloat Story

On Sunday morning December 12th 2010 Rosco got access to a bag of dried dog food and kept eating even after he was full. We rushed Rosco off to the vets straight away as his stomach was huge and he looked in pain. The vet tried to make Rosco vomit up the food but it wasn’t working. The vet then decided to operate on Rosco and removed all the food from his stomach. The vet was astonished at the amount of food that…

Hi Rita...nice to see you here...!!! I don't live far from Thetford forest where they run the huskies in the winter....it's sandy and flat and great for it...so I am seriously thinking of having a go with the girls....but tell me...do they walk on the lead well for you after they know how to pull you along like that..???? That's the only thing I'm worried about.. and how often do you take them out in harness..??? Best wishes and enjoy this site..Sammi, Abbi and Lola..

Hi there Rita
Hope that you don't mind me asking, but I wonder if you could give me a hint as to where you got the harnesses from for your dogs. I have tried to find them before, but without any success, When I kept the Akita's I thought that I would love to have them pull something, with me attached, but now would just like to try the Irish out with a bike..
Hope that you don't mind me asking. All the best Dee and the gang

Hi there Rita
Well I couldn't have asked a better person, I will have to think about purchasing something, because my pension may not stretch to the amount just at the moment. (We have some shows coming up soon).
Will definitely put them on my Christmas list though, can you tell me why the harness for long distance against the X back one???, is it because of the hight that it will be coming off a bike??? only thing is that my 'kids' don't have anything wrong with their backs, (I see that this type of harness is for dogs that have a bad back), maybe a lack of brains but nothing wrong with the backs....Thanks so much for the link I will definitely appreciate any advice, that you can give me, I may be old, but want to get the best for my guys..Thanks again Dee and the gang
