    You can certainly just do CNM, PRA, EIC, but for almost the same amount you can get 16 genetic mutations known to occur in Labradors. Actually, I believe HRC members get a discount -- so it would be...

    What if they were, in fact, there from the beginning -- from the St. John's water dog and/or Newfoundland? Almost all retrievers descend from these two dogs.

    I think that was pretty well illustrated in the Russian fox domestication project, which solved the riddle of how dogs came to have so many different coat types despite being descended from gray...

    Never say never, Sharon. Chocolate wasn't an acceptable color at one time, either.

    I want to know how everyone KNOWS that dd has NEVER been part of Labrador genetics.

    I agree with you about the eventuality of a mistake; and there goes the myth of the lab of discovery being infallible compared to any other lab.

    Dead on. Go with who you want, but just because one lab identified it, doesn't mean another lab can't accurately run the test -- and perhaps do it better because, unlike a university-funded lab,...

    Interesting about how the collar cinches on and off. Not sure if it would interfere with a e-collar or not, if you set the collar above the flea/tick collar; can see it being a pain in the butt...

    Feed one time a day in the evening after your training. Wait until they cool down and stop breathing hard, but within about an hour. That's the advice from nutritionists at both Purina and Eukanuba.
