I'm in West Des Moines. Thanks a bunch!!!
Lucy is having some leg issues from an old injury. Can anyone recommend a sports med vet in the area? Thanks.
Is she spayed? If not she may be getting ready to go in season.
I'm a pro groomer. When I worked in Colorado (low humidity) we had a lot of success with using a soap free (non oatmeal) Hypoallergenic shampoo and Re-Moisture conditioner by Natures Specialties....
I'm late to the party on this thread but here's my 2 cents. I don't use e-collars so........I'd like to see the dog in the first video walking calmly at heel with no ground sniffing. And no mouthing...

The best Finals I've seen. I've been playing and watching hockey for 12 years now.
My first female trained better in heat, while her daughter is a ding dong throughout. Just enjoy the time off; her mind is on other things.
The Dowton Abby Lab is called Isis.
Another excellent post! If this holds true you may have ended the e-collar vs Amish/British debate forever!:D
Great post! Thanks. Desiree
Thanks for your input. I've been mulling this stuff around for a few weeks now. You guys have given me more to think about. Keep'em coming!
When I think of work ethic in dogs; the completed job itself is the reward. That the owner is pleased is secondary.
A protection sport dog guy I knew once said when watching a Malinois scale a 8 or 9 ft. wall for a retrieve, that the dog has a good work ethic. So I got to thinking about work ethic/perserverance...
Try Real Duck Firehose Bumpers.
