Hi We have a lovely 3 year dog. He is nice and friendly and not agressive. When he is in the house with the family. He will obey commands to sit and beg etc etc. We take him out for walk on the lead. He goes out on his own and plays in the garden and sits on the patio. The problem we have is if anyone comes to the house he jumps all over them as he get so excited and will not stop for about 5 mins. He will not obey any commands to do anything when outside. Also if he is outside and we want to go out without him, he will not come back in. He will just run off. The problem is when i take my son to school on a morning and I walk. The dog will not go on the lead or come back in the house he runs off. He follows us but stays in the middle of the road with traffic all around him. I need to find someone who can train him. We are situated between La redorte and Pyriac minvervois.

Hi everyone I hope someone can help me. There is a homeless dog in my village, Capestang. He is a Brittany spaniel (I think that is his breed) and he is around 6 years old. He's a medium sized dog, not too big. His owner has decided that he no longer wants him and has kicked him out of this house. The unfortunate thing is that he quite likes our dog and often stays at our house and uses it a little as a hotel. The problem that we have is that he is a hunting dog and we do not trust him with our cats (we have 3!) and our house is a little too small for him. As a very temporary solution he is welcome to stay with us until I find him a suitable home. Some of our friends in the village who know the dog (they are hunters) have stated that he is not a good hunting dog because he has eaten the animals that are being hunted in the past and that is why he has been kicked out. They say that he is a nasty dog but I have seen no sign of this, apart from when he sees a cat running across the place and chases it! He is fantastic with our 7 year old daughter and our little dog and is often found laying on his back in our living room so I am not sure that he is very nasty. Maybe it's a great deal to do with his previously treatment, if he is treated right he is a nice dog. I also managed to bath him the other day as he has a tendency to swim in the canal du midi and ends up smelling very bad. He came back the following day, having been swimming and smells of fish again! I have spoken to the owner via a friend and the dog is micro-chipped and vaccinated, although I do not know if the vaccinations are fully up to date as he has been roaming the village for a couple of months. I said that I would like to find a home for him and the owner is willing to sign him over to me and give me the papers without any problems. Is there anyone out there who would like to meet him and possibly take him on? He is a very loyal and affectionate dog and we would love to keep him but our house is just too small as we already have 3 cats and a dog and I really do not trust him with our cats. Thanks for any help that anyone can give. Zoe

We (my husband and I) offer a good, loving and experienced home for any type of parrot that needs rehoming. We don't mind if it is noisy, needs a lot of attention or isn't receiving enough at the moment - anything considered. We offer time, attention, an aviary for the good weather and lots of socialisation with other birds. If you have a bird or know someone else who may want to rehome their bird please contact me. The bird will not be sold on or rehomed, it is for us and will have a loving forever home. Parrots have been part of my life for many years and i am now at a stage where we have the space and time to devote to one or two more birds.

Hi, I live in Uzes, Gard. I have been wondering whether anyone else has the same problem as me, I have to go to England about 3 times a year and have a dog and a cat, and every time I don't want to leave them in kennels/catteries, it also costs quite a lot. Not so much of a problem when I travel in Europe, as I normally take them with me. I therefore hoped somebody else has the same problem as me, as I really woudn't mind keeping someone else's pets, as long as they are friendly and get on with a two year old, my daughter. She is very well trained, she doesn't torture animals!! I would keep them in the house, we also have a good garden.Let me know if anyone is interested in this exchange of favours!Alessandra

Hi there, I have just moved to the area and I was wondering if anyone needed help exercising their horse(s)? I am not in a current position whereby I could get my own yet, or a full loan, but I do not want to give up riding for the next 7 months. I would ideally be looking for something around 15hh or bigger, and age/breed/level. I have my BHS stage 2 and PTT instucting certificate and have been riding for years so would be happy to school or hack. I live in the Aude department (11) at Fontieres Cabardes not far from Carcassonne Thank you!

We have four chickens who eat both small pellets and mash (farine) but we have great difficulty in purchasing the mash here in the 66 region - does anyone know where we can order or buy off the shelf? They do like their hot 'porridge' each morning now the weather has turned! Thanks

Hi!I am travelling from Ancona across Italy and along med to cross into France and down to South of France. I am travelling with 3 dogs and am looking for somewhere to stay just over border into France and maybe around Montpellier or anywhere along med really as can plan route around that. One dog is small and fine to sleep with me in room but for other two somewhere with kennels or a stable or secure barn would be fantastic. They have travelling cages which they could sleep in over night but somewhere they could run around freely for a while would be great. They are not used to being inside for long periods. What I could do with ideally is a B&B that has maybe a spare stable for the night or a secure small barn where two of the dogs could spend the night. Any suggestions greatly received.Rachel
