    From his perspective as a sporting dog vet he is right. I'm familiar with the principle. That's why most of us feed 20%+ fat foods BUT our dogs are working dogs in pretty good shape. Here we are...

    Good choice for dog games

    I needed a cooler for a double Master test In Lost Hills, California. I would be tent camping for four days but mid-May usually doesn't get too hot. I didn't expect the temperature to get over 90....

    I really appreciate the input. He's my first and only hunt test dog and we've come a long way together in less than three years. The more I learn the more I realize how much I have yet to learn.
