Latest baby at Mutley Manor

Post by mutleymanor on Sat Dec 18, 2010 2:28 pm

I waited impatiently for a mini poodle baby and finally got one from a lovely breeder whose Sire I had seen and loved. I have named her Maiya and she fits like she has lived here all her life. The standard kids love her and she is fearless Very Happy

Thanks Brooke Smile I am crate training her and just wondering how long she will squawk before she settles down! It was ten minutes last night so I figure ten at least. She's too little to have her hooning around with the standards unsupervised.
We will have to get together once the Christmas mayhem settles. How lovely for you to have Christmas with kids - ours is all adults, except of course the little fur kids. Got the latest scan on my mare and this time they got a heart beat at 26 days so fingers crossed. This is one expensive foal Rolling Eyes You know all about that though....Pics of house?

Hi merryl, can't see the pic. Not sure if it's Bali or my iPad? Anyhow, I bet she is gorgeous and will adore her life with big babies. I am missing London ESP whilst away and can't wait to see him again. Happy crate training and good luck with the scans.....

Yes, I would love to catch up after Christmas, I am having the first two weeks of January off.
Great news about your mare, I know you were thinking about it but didn't realise you had mated her Very Happy I sure everything will go to plan.......it will be an exciting edition to Mutley Manor(you will have to make an additon to the name to include your equines).
Unfortunately I am having trouble with my camera at the moment but will take a few with the video camcorder but it doesn't take very good still pics.

Thanks girls! Michelle, it must be Bali - bet you're having a blast Very Happy I'll post another one just in case. This little person has definitely been here before Wink

She was only 6 weeks old in this one. I hated going to see her but not being able to take her home, but I do think they should stay with their mother until at least 8 weeks.

Yeah, she's gotta grow into them rofl she's a mini, remember. She should be up to 15 inches fully grown, probably around 12 or so. She has nice chunky feet, not flat like some minis and toys.
She is a tubby girl but also needs a trim - like trying to scissor a gremlin!

what is crate training

Post by doggygroomer on Sun Dec 19, 2010 2:31 pm

Hi
She is georgeous, we are looking at getting a puppy soon and my beautiful old friend is 14 and I want the new puppy to learn from him, can you tell me what crate training is?
The family cant dicide what breed to get and I was hoping my on line grooming friends could help us deside?
The choices are
Mini schnauzer
Mini poodle
Bruxellois Griffon
we have 3 kids 16,8,4 and a cat we also have a big yard.
Your thoughts would be appreciated.
Jo

Thanks Jo Smile Crate training is teaching the puppy to love its crate Wink I feed mine in their crates and they sleep in them until I'm sure they are safe in the house. If they are from a breeder who crates it helps, but you can train them later. A crate is never a place to put them to punish them, only for positive experiences. I put a nice soft bed in the crate and if they whine or carry on they stay there until they settle.
I learned the hard way years ago when I had to crate an injured dog that wasn't crate trained and he hated it. They should also travel in a crate in the car unless they are in a harness.
I convince (well, try to..) people by asking them how their dog would cope if it had to be crated at the vets, even if it's years away. Older dogs may need some time in the veterinary clinic and if they are accustomed to a crate they will be less stressed.
Mine often put themselves in their crate (think "den" ) if they want some time out or they have a treat they want to enjoy in peace. In multiple dog homes Rolling Eyes they are a Godsend.
That's just a little information, but never leave them in for a prolonged period, except for overnight and in earshot. If I want to separate two I leave one in for an hour, then swap. Mine all go in on request.
As for choosing your breed there are several on-line questionaires that help you to decide. Obviously I adore poodles - they are smart, loving, non- aggressive (well should be..) and clean, but they do need lots of grooming unless you keep them clipped short, which many people do up here in Queensland. If you can't groom them youself it is an ongoing expense, but anyone can learn the basic clips. I think Schnauzers need grooming too. Don't know anyhting about BGs Question But they are very cute! Good luck with your quest Dance dog

Well, well, well... obviously you don't have enough to do Merryl Razz She is too cute. It's great when the mini's get on with the standards Smile Jo, all our guys are crate trained and sleep in them at night too... don't want anything to happen while we're asleep Shocked I use the word "bed" and they'll go straight in. There's been one person at the shop that didn't want their dogs in a crate because they would fret, but I put them in and they were fine. Others have been concerned that their dog would be locked up (thinking prison), and I've told them what you say about the dog having to be locked up at the vet too Merryl. Great minds Laughing Cool Of course, you could always have a standard poodle too Jo. Oh, we have a litter at the moment Wink

I can see. Yippee and she is so gorgeous. London was a terror to groom too. He is getting better. He runs from the bath around to the table and jumps on and waits for drying. He is good on the table now as he gets a nice treat when finished. santa

She decided she could pick up their rather large ball....and did Very Happy

Left the ball picture out Rolling Eyes Took her to the local shopping centre today to get a bit of socialisation - life on the farm is prety quiet....mine are used to cows, horses, geese, ducks and the lorikeet, but need to see suburbia and such too. She took it all in her stride, in my arms because she has had only one vaccination. She did actually pick up the ball and run away with it
