    Your dog may be doing the same thing mine did. At 8 months, my dog was a "full" well built dog that was not skinny (kind of what you are describing) and weighed 78-80 lbs. Then all of a sudden, he...

    I agree, especially in males, if you keep them anti social and away from other dogs, theres a good chance you will have an aggressive dog that doesn't know how to act around other dogs.

    I let mine play with other dogs, it wears him out. I don't see a big deal with it as long as the dog knows when enough is enough. He never plays until he gets my permission, it's kind of funny...

    Yeah that's where I have been messing up but I still find it hard to believe it would make that much of a difference. I am going to do it right next month and see if that changes anything. I did pull...

    Yeah some people get really weird about letting their dogs "play" with other dogs like that. As long as they leave the play to play time and work when it's work time everything is good to go. In my...

    Well after going back and reading the instructions it appears that I am not applying it correctly. I have been putting it all in one spot right between his shoulder blades instead of 4 separate spots...

    That's all good to know but if advantix is all of sudden not working what is one supposed to do? My dog is on advantix and he has two ticks on him right now as I type this which tells me something...

    I generally use the two inchers but when transitioning to cold blinds I use the bigger bumpers so they can more easily be seen. And yes, I have been know to throw a boat bumper or two every now and...

    Interesting. I got it from our local Vet. Never had an issue with it before. I'm going to talk with them this week and see what they think. Theres a lot of ticks where I live so I have to have...
  11. K9 Advantix 2 question and what's the most popular on this forum?

    I have had my dog on K9 advantix 2 for his whole life (13 months) and he has done fine on it until now. It's almost like the stuff isn't working as good as it use to. I am finding ticks on him...

    That's correct.

    It's something about a male. Mine tests me every few months. He did it at 5-6 months and he did it again around 10-11 months. He is 13 months now and everything is rolling nicely...

    After the dog is done with it's medicine, supplement with a probiotic (I use purina fortiflora) for one month to get the digestive tract back in shape and you should be good to go. I would start back...

    haha dang. I guess all you can respond to that with is a laugh. But, you did ask for it by taking him to a "park". You know what type of people take their dogs to parks, the type that wouldn't know...

    Thank you very much. I thought so too. I don't think most people realize how much a couple of pounds extra effects a dog.

    Here is a picture of the dog the same day the guy told me he was underweight. He is 13 months and 82 lbs and I will say he is lighter than he was at 10 months.

    Honestly, I don't think I could put weight on my dog if I wanted to. If I accidentally over feed him his poop turns soft. It seems to be pretty hard to keep weight on a 13 month old as high octane as...

    That's a gorgeous dog. I hope mine looks like that when he is done filling out. Here's a pic of Blake.

    Exactly. Only time you will see any extra weight on my dog is when it's duck season to add a little extra insulation.

    What do you look for when trying to maintain that good working "fighting" weight? Ribs, hip bones, waistline.....

    Yeah I honestly think, especially in labs, people are just accustomed to over weight dogs so when they see one that is truly in shape they think it is underweight.

    Glad to hear that. I was told the other day my dog looked too thin by a guy who's dog to me looked like she could stand to lose several pounds.
  24. What body condition for working dogs? How thin do you like them?

    What appearance do most people like to see on their dogs in working condition? I have a 13 month old male that is VERY thin, you can't see his ribs when he is just standing there looking forward but...

    Pretty funny to watch him retrieve it in the water too. Once he figured out how to grab it, he has no issues and picks it up just like it was a regular bumper.
