Puppy's mum says: Our Dogs are Dogs, They Like Killing Things

How might Puppy's Mum be able to help you?

Pharaoh Hound Information

Do you have a dog, and have questions about how to keep your dog happy? Is your new puppy having trouble settling in? Are you looking for a new puppy and aren't sure where to look?

I would love to help you with any of these issues, and more. My husband and I have bred many puppies over the last twenty years, and every puppy born at our home is important to us. Whether the puppy became a show dog or a much loved pet, it always remained 'our' puppy to some extent. We always cared about the wellbeing of that puppy.

I would love to be there for you too, if you have a new dog or pup, or if you're thinking of getting one, I would love to help you make the right choices for yourself, your family and for your puppy or dog.

Ask a question on this website, or make a comment. I'll answer you, I am here for you.

Our Dogs are Dogs, They Like Killing Things

We have four dogs, living with us in the house and in the backyard. In the backyard, the dogs come into their own, they're hunters, they love to hunt! It's been an ongoing thing for us at this time of year though - creatures, wild ones, are out and about, looking for food, mates and whatever else they need when Spring comes along. These creatures seem distracted in Spring, and fall foul of our dogs with their zest for hunting.

Yesterday we had a wild visitor to the backyard, a reptile, fortunately not a snake, but a blue tongue lizard. These lizards are quite common in South Australia, and the one we had yesterday is certainly not the first one we've ever had. There was one in the yard a fortnight ago, that lost in the battle with the dogs, and it died.

This most recent lizard had obviously had a run in with one of the dogs, I don't know which one, but the lizard had the end of its tail bitten off. I kept an eye on proceedings once I knew the lizard was there, I wanted to give it a chance to go somewhere else, away from our pack of hounds, somewhere it could heal itself...

Today, the lizard is nowhere in sight, so the dogs are having more free time out in the yard, but, as usual, they're happy to be inside most of the time, on their favourite place to lie down - the dog sofa!
