    It can seem overwhelming when you get your dog back and you had such a relatively short time to learn to work with him. Training is a lifelong journey and you will never know it all, you continue to...

    Very sorry for your loss. Raven was loved and gave love in return, that's all that matters, in the end, not the papers or the ribbons. Godspeed, Raven, good girl.

    Don't worry. There's plenty of us started out not knowing what we didn't know and plenty started with Waterdogs/Wolters (I did) too, but there are better/easier/more advanced methods. Your pup is...

    As well, concerning the dews, I don't know if any other labs besides U of MN will use them for testing, most ask for swabs. Keep that in mind if you decide to test the puppies for either EIC or CNM.
