    Not too sure what its like and might only be 10 mins! But could be worth a watch, its called Pet Club and they said they have 5 dogs and a vet who has a guide to the best dog for your lifestyle.

    Hopefully its useful if any of you are thinking of a dog but not sure which one :)

    Ahh that would be nice! I bet some of the 5 dogs are from rescues. The other week when there was the one who jumped at the tv etc, they brought him in and he ran off all around the set! I think he was a rescue, right little character :D

    I'm hoping it will be quite good, This Morning usually have good people for advice things I think :)

    I know! I was surprised they actually expected him to be calm and do it all, m dog would have gone crazy at there being so many people and buggered anything I asked him to do too :D

    Nice to see staffies getting a boost.

    Unsurprising that Mark suggested the ABS as a way to avoid puppyfarms.:(

    I suppose though, that at least those with ABS aren't usually quite the worst, are they? :(

    There is a puppy farm nearish to me and they really do ship them out. They have just about every breed you could imagine form chihuahuas to bulldogs to CKCS to golden retrievers to collies to great danes. I would hope most with an ABS aren't the worst of the worst. Its a shame because the KC don't give me much faith with things like that...

    If true, it's not quite a recommendation, is it?

    'Come to us. We're rubbish but you could do worse.'

    That fact is that, when giving advice on how to avoid puppyfarms, Marc Abrahams suggests a list that he knows does contain puppyfarms.

    Yeah me too but i think they could've said more, like having owners on to recommend them.
