Nice to see you again.

Just wanted to check in and make sure these are the sort of sites you're after:

Dog Board 

Lots of posts, lots of members, lots of topics, such as "Training", "Health", etc.
Dogpages forums

This is a well-populated and current forum.  It concentrates on
finding homes for dogs, but also has general topic forums, such as:

--Training and behaviour...

--Other questions and dog chatter...


If I'm barking up the wrong tree, let me know.  But if these look
good, I'll see about digging up some others for you...let me know how
many you think you'd like to have.

Yes, like those :) Please try for ten UK sites.

In terms of what "popular" means, over 500 members, or some such
metric. I have been looking at a few and it is usually fairly obvious
which are popular and which are not.

Thanks for getting back to me.

I found some additional UK-based (for the most part) forums that all
appear to be quite viable -- good membership, and fairly active

I've also listed a few additional resources that may be of interest.

Hope you and your pooch stay healthy and have fun.

Let me know if there's anything else you need.


Seems to be a very diverse and fairly busy forum, with a large
membership.  In addition to the usual categories (Health, Training,
etc) they have some unusual ones, such as:

--Complimentary And Alternative Health


--New Dog Owners

--Breed Specific

--Working Dogs

Click on "Message Board" to enter the forum.
Appears to be a fairly active forum, though not as heavily trafficked as some.
Speciality forum for those interested in competitive obedience, which
I gather is a dog show sporting event.  May or may not be your cup of
This seems worth being aware of.  It is not exclusively for dogs, nor
is it heavily posted.  However, it is focused solely on health issues,
so if something arises down the road, this may be a useful resource to
tap into.
This is a members-only site, so I couldn't explore it in much detail
(it is easy and free to sign-up for membership, though).  It was
linked to from a few UK sites, and seems to be modestly active.
Fairly active board with a largely UK membership.
Looks to be a busy, well-populated forum
Active forum with a very diverse set of topic areas.
A global forum, with some UK membership, but since I'm running out of
UK-only sites, I thought I'd mention this one as well!


And a few other resources to be aware of:
[Not a forum, but a good resrouce]
Easy place to find pictures of dogs by breed, but be warned, there are
a lot of ads here.
A magazine (no forum) that might be of interest.

Again, let me know if there's anything else you need.
