    To answer the question you asked - plan on a week. The reality is it will depend on the timing of the bitch owner. If she's actually ready to breed, it'll take maybe 3 days to get 2 solid ties.

    I've had great luck with these. Originally I used them for puppies, but found them to be ideal for fast eaters as well.

    I would consider $4k a steal for an HRCH female with clearances at 3 years old.

    If I were selling such an animal I would aim in the $6000-$8000 range if she was completely healthy.

    Have you tried retrieving in a different location? Dogs are so situationally oriented that just a change of scenery can really help.

    You might try some retrieves where you have more control...

    I'd also be willing to suggest Tom Dokken's series. It's affordable and a well put together series. It goes nicely with his books too.

    There you go... something to work with - you like 'em big, black and healthy. I'm going to guess male? Next questions are what is your budget and how far are you willing to travel or pay shipping?

    That's a decent snapshot assessment of genetics of diluted genes in labradors. Truth be told, dilute genes are incredibly complicated. It's been hashed out on RTF many times. There is still an...

    I use whatever motivates my dogs to TEACH a concept. As young dogs are highly motivated by food it is a good tool.

    Was there a significant height difference in the dogs?
