    Rescue dog

    I agree, unfortunately I am a bit of a wildlife buff so I have holes in my fences that go into the woods behind my house for foxes/hedgehogs to pass through the garden which they do regularly. So no keeping them in the garden if they go out and with the woods they would easily get lost...

    Hi Everybody, We are doing practicals as normal. The restrictions and safety measures are making it tricky.
