    Advice from dog owners please

    That is a fair point about ruling out medical causes for behavioural issues. I agree it's less likely if he is fine on the days you are there.

    I loved Gravel.

    https://hugokamishi.com/cat/gravel/natural-gravels/ Available fairly wide spread. Have a look what your local fish shop has in stock too - they often have bags of 'plain' gravel. You can put tropica substrate (looks like dry powdered mud rather than the soil that looks like brown gravel)...

    Slightly off tangent, but if you contact your local fire service they will likely come out and do a safety visit and can fit fire alarms that have flashing lights/vibration alerts too (usually its a free service) there will be a number or form on their website. Good luck with the training :)

    Silly Questions…

    1. Generally, if you change water by filling a bucket up with new water, then dosing, then transfering the water into the tank you would dose the bucket for the amount of water in the bucket. If you refill using a hose going straight from tap to tank, then you dose for the volumn of water in...
