    Anyone watching?
    Only just caught this programme, as normally I watch repair shop, but someone mentioned cresties so I had to go look
    Having seen the first ten minutes, I've come to the conclusion some people should never be allowed to have dogs
    and
    the breeders who sell to them, need shooting

    Cuddling my DOG lots, whilst spitting like cat furious cat at TV
    Have now turned back to repair shop
    It's better for my blood pressure

    It came up in my "you might like to watch" thingy and I was holding off for now as it looked rather like: :Banghead

    Are there any good bits?!

    I can't watch programmes like these. I can't afford a new tv in case I throw something at the old one.

    Flicking back and forward, there's a lovely family who've taken on a Cyprus oldie rescue and are doing really well with introducing her to their other dogs
    But, and it's driving me mad,
    There's lots of pack talk in the narration
    Such as
    Dogs need to find their place in the pack with their human at the top
    However
    A plus point are the trainer's the owners have chosen to use, lots of positive reward based training

    Oh! Next week there's a Pomsky and the narrator has already called it "a new breed"

    :Banghead:Banghead

    "Next week meet the pomsky, a new and unusual breed"
    Oh noooooo

    Was a teaser for a trainer warning somebody off a puppy farm, so that's a potential good thing I guess

    She's the one who made me want to scream:Banghead
    But
    She's being really receptive to a positive trainer and recognised the mistakes she made with her previous dog, so some kudos due:)

    Edit because my stupid phone keeps auto correcting so to do grrrr

    There’s a similar program on ch 5 which is better I think. Could have cheerfully slapped the crestie lady although as you say, she did see her mistakes and seemed to want to improve herself as well as train the puppy. I thought the family with the little dogs Sage (who is a lovely puppy) is fun. I watched the program last week and Reggie (the husband) just could hardly bear to be in the same room as the pup when they bought him home, I’ve never seen someone scared of dogs before. Nice to see him enjoying going for a walk with Sage. The new Pomsky breed got my eyes rolling round in circles.

    I'm the same. I avoid dog programmes (unless I've been given the heads up that they are good) like the plague and no one in my house will watch them with me either as I just shout at the TV all the time!

    Where I used to live (4 months ago lol) the chap who lived in front was a huge body builder type, quite open about his use of steroids, muscle on muscle type of man, with a temper to match
    Always used to amuse me ( I'm a cow, I know) that whenever I took the littles out for a walk he'd move as far away as possible, if I took thunder out, or one of the mastiff breeds on foster, he would run and I really mean run (no mean feat for a bloke who walked like he'd been sat on a horse forever, his thigh muscles were so overloaded) indoors until I knocked on his door to tell him they were back indoors

    Why did they call it a breed? Even if it is a puppy farm warning any promotion of these sorts of crosses gets my goat. My friend has a pomsky, she got it after the whole litter was taken to the vets to be PTS because they weren't desirable colours for pomskys (they were all cream coloured rather than the classic husky markings) and wouldn't make the puppy farmer any money. Luckily the vets contacted a rescue and the litter were all adopted. She's actually a cracking little dog! But then my friend is a dog trainer and knew what she was letting herself in for!

    Holy goose!! The gall of some people...
    It's absolutely horrifying that so many in the world value money over actual lives.
    It's time to delete the whole universe.

    An old primary school friend of mine breeds pomskies. A lot of them just look like slightly smaller huskies, definitely not the pocket pups that everyone imagines!!

    I know, commercial Irish puppy farm I think it was. Just horrific.

    Her dog looks like a small cream spitz type, you'd not necessarily guess pomsky.

    Very sad at the end when it came up on the screen that Meg the sheepdog had died in a road accident one month after filming had ended.

    I would say I'm shocked but I'm really not, I wonder how many of the 'undesirable' marked puppies get quietly disposed of with no vet even involved.

    I want to watch the programme because I'm nosy & it's about animals so I can coo at them one minute & shout at the human fools the next, but I won't be able to as it's on the Beeb.
