The ribs on a dog at an ideal weight should be easily palpable and have an abdominal tuck. If the pelvic bones are prominent, they are to thin.
Saw this on FB this morning. Enjoyed watching it multiple times. Great video and music!
Best 'fix' of the day!

Thanks Renee. I really like the kennel, just not sure about what size to get for my dog. Cabelas won't let you bring your dog into the store unless it is a service dog. Maybe I can throw Digit in...
That's exactly why I liked them. Ventilation and a driver's view through.

Anyone using these kennels? I like the double door model but not sure whether to get the intermediate or large size.
Yes, exactly Bridget. New to the game myself and I will gladly pay the nominal fee, especially knowing that I trained my own dog to that level!
Great, thank you! So, two occasions of All-Age qualifications could be many different combinations such as

2nd & 2nd in Qual
1st & 1st in Qual

Try a "scrub Jacket" instead of an actual lab coat.
Steve, if you are going to use treats to train, a good skill to teach your pup is 'impulse control'.
Wanting titles, how about 2xNOC OTCH Count Tyler Show Me The Money UDX7 OM7 MH (QAA and derby list).
If you are looking for "eye cerf" - check the AKC website to see if there are any breed/conformation trials in your area. Many times the hosting club will have an Opthamologist on site conducting a...
I have commands for field and different commands for competitive obedience. In field training I use - here - sit - heel - side (2 sided dog) - place - dead bird - mark - out ("drop" is a down from a...
My thoughts exactly. Holy smokes!
As for the pup if he's not 100% supervised (meaning tethered to you), he should be in his crate. This goes for both potty training and preventing bad things from happening, like eating something that...
Brilliant! Breed for health and retrieve and hope for the best!
