    Upland is my area of specialty, with both pointing dogs and retrievers. The dog in my avatar came to my ownership at age six, after spending those years...

    I just spent $180 on hips and elbows, including sending to OFA. No anesthesia. The sad part is the Dr. Link is retiring next month. :(

    If you're going the standard retriever route, I'd focus on that first. You really won't need to train for hunting upland a couple of times a year. Most dogs will figure out the upland pretty fast...

    The only rugs I have are pretty heavy, but Neato zooms right on up and over them. Handles furniture pretty well, too, where Roomba used to get stuck under chairs.

    Don't rush...take your time and do things slowly when it's your turn to run. There's no hurry. From the time you leave the last holding blind to go to the line, you *own* the test and the time. If...

    2" here. Why? Because I can fit more of them in the bag and they're cheaper. :D

    Whether or not a dog should go through a FF program depends on the goals of its owner.

    While there are good, hard hunting dogs out there that have never been FF'd and meet their owners needs, it's...

    I just shipped two puppies to their new homes using Kati, and one client dog shipped to me via Kati also. I am very, very happy.

    Ummmm.....hate to break the news, but dogs eat stuff raw, and that's their "Paleo" way of doing things and has been for as long as there has been dogs on this planet.

    While it is interesting to compare so many foods in one place, as long as the personal biases are present, it's not research....as in science based research...it's opinion.

    An ear pinch used in this context would be unrelated to force fetch. The ear pinch is initially a cue and eventually a correction, for NOT picking something up....not for picking the wrong object.

    I think there are three things that are hard about FF for a lot of folks. Timing, reading the dog, and not being emotionally involved. The better the timing, the faster the dog picks it up.

    Robin, a scruff shake is more of a "knock it off, don't do that" in dog language. An ear pinch in itself has no meaning to a dog other than "ouch". We have to help them translate that into "if I...
