    Large Breed Adult food necessary?

    Is large Breed food for a 16 month old adult YLM necessary? His weight is around 75lbs... haven't weighed him in a while.

    I feed NutriSource Adult Chicken and Rice. The LB food is lower calorie...

    I found the culprit to his breaking... I think... or at least a piece of it.

    Last night I set three wingers in front of us so they would throw bumpers toward us from different angles. I would...

    OK... I'll bite.

    So what would your approach be to get him 'ready'. All indications in training are that he is ready. He's rock solid and doesn't break...

    One thing I considered was to chain him to his dog stand, when I hunt by myself. He's not going to get very far, very quickly dragging a dog stand through 18 inches of water. :D

    Makes perfects sense... I guess a little sacrifice now will be worth it in the long run. Thanks!
  10. Steady during training... not so much while hunting

    15 month old YLM.

    He is rock solid in training, had him honoring another dog this afternoon without once needing a correction... I do all I can to tempt his steadiness but he's solid in training....

    Yep... full facial assault here too. Got him smelling better, but he took a direct shot into his mouth, so when he breaths on you it's nasty. He was foaming and snotting at the mouth and nose like...

    Skunked!!

    My Lab got skunked on Saturday evening. Do they typically remember to avoid these things after it happens once?

    I sure hope the answer is yes!
