    10 puppies & Us

    Did anyone watch it?
    I loved Pedro the Houdini even though he led his owners on a ‘merry dance’

    The woman with the Goldie, was a prime example why NOT to buy a puppy for kids,
    felt sorry for the pup as she hadn’t a clue.

    What a great life Jura the search and rescue pup will have and her owner was so committed

    As for the girls with the Chihuahuas,i felt really sorry for the older chi then she wanted to bring in another puppy !

    Yes agree. The Goldie woman who had never had a dog, but was going to train it herself, made me want to shout at the TV. Could they not have booked a trainer to help her get started?
    Pedro was such a sweetie - his Dad had so much patience with him.
    I loved the look on the behaviourist's face when she learned that there was to be another puppy!
    I hope Jura passes her 9 month test - I'm sure she will.
    I can't wait for the Beagle episode.
    Just one crib - yet again, no mention of health profiles.

    This is when it gets frustrating as I am unable to get iPlayer [or the video on the Mirror] but thank you Jane for that link, although there was not enough information without being able to see the actual video.

    Let's hope the other owners we will see are a bit more clued up, the goldie woman , I wanted to scream !! Loved the rescue parents, made me laugh when he slept by the cage in the laundry .....

    As so many people have been talking about it I tracked it down on catch up.
    Wow, it's brilliant and I feel quite smug about the raising of our pup, he is 7 months old now, compared to some he is an angel. Looking forward to the next episode

    I've been watching this too and my favourite so far as been Jura but I could be slightly biased as it's a collie and I have a bit of a soft spot for them! :)

    The lady with the golden was clueless but they did give her help this week for getting Lola (was it?) to walk up the hill. The woman in flat who wanted BIG dogs drove me up the wall tbh.... good luck to her keeping her designer shoes (out on display) in one piece!!! :D

    I'm interested in watching the pug puppy next week to see what they are like and if it mentions health issues and whether that one seems healthy as it's on my 'future small dog' list.

    After watching this, Is it any wonder so many dogs end up in rescue.
    Im really glad that jura and Will got into the program, some way to go but her owner is really committed.

    Lola's mum is learning slowly, was pleased to see her responding to help and guidance.

    Poor Poppy, hopefully the message has got through and the kids have learned to leave
    her alone, shame it needed the behaviorist to point it out.

    The big dog woman what is there to say, am sure the leonberger puppy didn’t come from a reputable breeder,( as she was looking at ads on G-- ----) house training will not be easy, especially if she tries to run up/down stairs in her 3” heels.

    The Pug was lovely, such a quick learner, and a born poser. He is with media folks, I think you might be seeing a lot of him around.
    The Leonberger woman is clueless, and sadly, she knows it. I don't think she should have had a giant breed, and if I was the breeder I wouldn't have let it go to live in an upstairs flat. I do hope the behaviourist steps in next week.
    The third one was a Labrador puppy going to a large lively family with an autistic Downes infant. They have selected for temperament, and the puppy seems to be coping well.

    I couldn't believe the Leonberger breeder would let her walk off with a puppy so unprepared for the long journey home. I did feel very sorry for her when she was in tears realising she wasn't coping, and hope it's sorted soon both for her sake and Shiva's.

    I really hope it continues to go well for the lab puppy with the large family. What a smashing lad the eldest boy is.

    The breeder of the leo , what type pf breeder is she, to let someone go off for a 4 hr journey by taxi and trains without even a collar and lead, I really hope that owner figures out soon a leo is not for her and re home the pup before its to late.

    p.s....if I was that breeder I would be keeping my head down to be honest /

    Hello all,
    I don't think the lady with the leo should have a large breed in a flat personally... She needs to think about the dog and not just the fact she wants a large breed. In my opinion, it's a bit selfish really. I hope (as mentioned before) she puts her pup first and rehomes before it is too late.

    P.S. @katilea You can watch the episode on BBC IPlayer on the internet.

    Shiva was obviously bought from a breeder who clearly was just interested in the ££££ notes and I wonder how it will end.
    I didn't like the trainer at the puppy class and felt sorry for Delia, the trainer could see she was struggling and could have been a bit friendlier and tried to help her a bit more. The others reaction when pup pooped was also unnecessary.

    Not into dogs being dressed up but Butch was cute.

    Good on the woman with the kids for trying really hard to get a pup to match the family
