    My very first Lab was EIC affected. Working in the heat and humidity were his triggers, but never saw it occur during cold weather. I had him neutered and gave him away to a pet home.

    Here's a shot of Ch. June of Sandylands. I believe she was whelped in the late 1930's. She is my favorite representation of female Labrador type, as set forth by the breed Standard.

    Interesting to hear that folks have had such poor experiences with SportDog. I've owned an SD 1875 for several years (multi-collar), used almost everyday, with zero issues.
