    Harness Recomendations for Lurcher

    Hi everyone, Our six month old lurcher puppy needs a new harness. The problem we are having is that he has slightly odd body proportions due to his mix (mainly a greyhound x beagle x foxhound + many other breeds) and his current harness fits in some areas but not others. Due to him being a...

    After crucial ligament surgery

    This is just a general query! My rottie tore her crucial ligament in her back leg last summer and since then has had surgery to repair it! My vet told me after she’d been given the all clear that she was fine going for walks but maybe not let her play with other dogs. I’ve let her off a few...
