    I have a question about this. I've had some fleeting contact with the schutzhund folks and they have to work on "OUT" the way we work on "FETCH". It could be argued that they are operating their...

    Oh, PS: I conducted pain research on rats at UCSF for a year. The security on the animal facilities was intense. Moreover, they required us to transport the rats in a box labeled "syringes". We...

    I disagree that the "natural thing" would be to stab the dog if you had a knife. Being brought down by a police dog is a known thing... it's a weapon police are known to deploy. To me, the natural...

    Is there anyone in their 60's without bad knees/hips or herniated disks? What is the average age of handlers, I wonder?

    Before my knee replacements my dog was handled by a pro. Obviously, you...

    Oh, my! Yes! That's why a "good day" doesn't mean much, but happily neither does a "bad day". There's always tomorrow. And it only matters if the good days start to string together.

    1. The letter 'U' will be reinstated in words such as 'colour,' 'favour,' 'labour' and 'neighbour.' Likewise, you will learn to spell 'doughnut' without skipping half the letters, and the suffix...

    Well, there were quite a few non-carriers in the litter and these blood lines won't disappear. All the pups went to great homes and will probably be campaigned in HT's and FT's. (Better homes for...

    My son-in-law is a big, big, big hunting fanatic. And he has always gone waterfowl hunting with a lab. So you'd think we would have something in common. (I do HT's and...

    Newpup is fantastically pedigreed and theoretically it might be nice to keep her (and options) "open". But she's an EIC carrier. So... gotta be spayed.

    Cost to spay

    What's a reasonable cost to pay for spaying a healthy female lab who has not yet come into heat?

    And while I'm asking... how much did you pay the last time you had your dog's teeth cleaned?

    "Train fast dogs slow, and slow dogs fast." Actually, I think it refers to "handle fast dogs slow and slow dogs fast" and doesn't refer to rushing dogs through a training program.
