Growing Dogs: Part 3 – Repotting



[This is Part 3 of an ongoing series on Growing Dogs. Previous hints and tips may be found  here .]

Pisgah, OH (Strutts News Services) –

From Part 1 — Growing Dogs

Anyone who has tried to raise big dogs in the city understands the difficulties involved.  One authority, Ms. Tooncie Crumbler, has beat the odds and raised several healthy crops of Retrievers Golden outside her flat in downtown Pisgah.

We contacted Ms. Tooncie Crumbler, president of the Ohio Canine Planting Society, and asked her about the importance of planter sizing when raising pups.

“It all has to do with hybridization,” said Ms. Crumbler.  “Many hybrids require larger containers, lest they get rootbound.  If you pay attention to their growth patterns, these breeds will let you know when repotting is necessary for healthy growth.”

Ms. Crumbler said that the signs are usually obvious. “If the soil begins spilling from the top of the planter, that’s usually a good indication that the pup is ready for the next size up.  If you don’t replant within two to three weeks, your crop’s roots will be stunted, and that dog won’t hunt.”

  5. Bunk Strutts Says:

    dogs– Yeah, we get a lot of spam comments, just like yours. To combat it, sometimes we’ll go ahead and post the comment with the link to the spam blog stripped from the comment, just like we did with yours. Advice? Yeah. Quit spamming.
