  1. Have you taught her to walk to heel? If so you could use high value treats to walk her into the house with you. Carrying her isn't teaching her anything and may reinforce the behaviour. Getting stressed will make.her fearful too, as hard as it is try not to show any negative emotions. Agree with moonbird, get her a big crate and crate train her so she has a safe place to go when she needs to. She's a working breed and will need more stimulation than just a walk. Try some sniffing games and retrieving games. A couple of fun gundog lessons would teach you both some suitable games to play. That would also build your bond and her trust in you and thus help the problem.
  2. Have you thought about a dog walker? That way your dog can socialise in the day which may be enough. Its not as permanent as getting a new dog which would be stressful at first. If you can't let the dogs live together as moonbird suggests, can they spend the day together? Could the other get dropped off at yours when your ex goes to work?
  3. You should leave it well alone. If you want to you can observe it for a day or two to see if the parents feed it. It's likely just left the nest but hasn't learnt how to fly. Interference could jeopardise its chance of survival. " The adult birds are much more skilled at looking after their offspring than humans will ever be! It’s very likely that the bird’s parents are nearby, waiting for you to leave the area If the bird is in a very vulnerable position (for example, in the middle of the pavement), it’s OK to move it somewhere safe nearby – perhaps from off the ground into a bush or tree where cats won’t see it Watch from a safe distance to see what happens. If it really has been abandoned, contact our Wildlife Enquiries team for advice, but as the conservation organisation, the RSPB is not able to offer a rescue service. Tel: 01767 693690 between 9.00am - 5.15pm, Monday - Friday (not weekends or Bank Holidays). Try to avoid interference wherever possible. It really is best to leave baby birds alone."

  4. Lotties school of dogs uses positive methods. You get what you pay for. You may only need 3-5 sessions to get the tools you need to train your dog.
  5. Never had bought by many. Got stung with a £500 limit per claim clause with animal friends who still tried to not pay out. Had a couple of claims through more than who were quick and easy. I always stick to the retail brand now as they seem to have the best customer service.
