I teach my dogs to honor in a down. It is a clear signal that they are done working until I tell them otherwise. Not a crutch--no different than those who turn into the dog, or face away from the...
Much harder to find Pen Hip docs than OFA docs and it is already hard to find OFA docs.
I second that--WHY does he stink? I have Labradors and the only time they have an odor is when they have rolled in something nasty. Do Chessies have an innate odor that Labs don't?
Try two females in heat and two intact males in a 30-ft travel trailer with no other options. When the weather was warm enough I tried having the males sleep on the truck, but the younger male...
Ha! I typed Jack Beam...must be Jim Beam's brother.
Get them as far apart as possible. If you have to keep them in the same house and air in the same yard, get some ear plugs and your preferred form of relaxation--be it Jack Beam or Xanax.
I start my pups out at two times a day so you can ease your pup onto the new schedule at any time.
The fact that you believe anything you see or hear on Fox news is concerning ;)
Here is more info that lists treatments, percent fatalaties, etc. so the whole story:
Just remember that pigeon poo is full of nasty stuff that can make you and your dogs sick. Keep the coop clean so you aren't breathing the stuff and keep the area under the coop fenced off so the...
Quick google search turned up several, here is one:
I think it depends on whether you can get a direct flight for the pup. If there are connections, there are more chances for problems. I personally don't like shipping because of the extra work it...
The question is whether his size is the "norm" and the others are small, or whether he is large for his age/parentage.
I have had smaller pups in the litter end up as large as the larger pups in...
CNM stands for Centronuclear Myopathy. Here is the website: www.labradorcnm.com
Hips and elbows are done after two years old to ensure the dog is fully grown before x-rayed. You need to find a...
Looks like your Dylan was bred by Diamond R Labradors in Montana. Perhaps they can tell you more about the dog.
I would certainly be asking about medications to help with blood pressure and back flow.
I had a cat diagnosed at two with a bad mitral valve. He lived ten years on blood pressure medication.
Here is a good explanation of the condition, symptoms and treatments:
There appears to be a hereditary component to TVD. However, it is like hip dysplasia...when you have the echo doppler done on a dog's heart, it is looking at phenotype, not genotype. You can breed...
I see eight skulls but nine spines...
I am all for making fun of Hitler and tearing him down as done by Mel Brooks, but this video doesn't do that. It uses him to back a position that we and our breed clubs support, which makes him a...
I can't find Hitler funny at all. Having him on "our" side is not a good thing. It's like the PETA ad with the KKK guy talking about pure races.
To answer your question, yelling "NO" at a test will get you dropped. If you had the situation you described and you said, "fetch it up," that is considered a handle. Any direction or encouragement...
Miners kennel is about 90 minutes south of Chicago. Goldens are their breed and they have lessons and training days.
just be sure to show the trainer everything you have done with your dog so he knows where the dog is and what commands you have been using.
I have one from Ainley that folds flat.
