    Sure!

    The first reason I would pause at an EIC carrier stud is because there are just so many amazing studs out there that are clear.

    Secondly, it matters more on the stud because a top end...

    I suppose it all depends on which one you think pairs best with the female and what you're trying to produce.

    For me - the EIC carrier (on a stud) is enough to make me pause, but when you add the...

    Definitely start with the female. An AFC or FC female will have a line of suitors to pick from to breed.

    I couldn't agree more with this sentiment. The entire breeding process is all about the female. There is a massive surplus of amazing studs, but finding a high end female is where I start now.

    Chewing is more about age then genetics. Some will do it more than others, but what I would look for if chewing is a concern is a dog that truly has the good "off switch." Most breeders point this...

    We keep free choice dog food always available and our trick lately has been to give the bitch raw venison coated in powdered lamb's milk. This made some very healthy pups and kept weight on mama. ...

    There's your trouble. It sounds like you have a high octane pup... which is great if you can control her.

    The quick fix I would try first is once the pup comes back, you need a set order of...

    I've done it before and made a couple mistakes. I will do it again, but better.

    As mentioned, you need to keep the separated and treat them as individuals or they will bond more with each other...

    I don't see this as being defiant, but rather a confusion and over excitement. I wouldn't correct on the collar here. I would command the recall and probably take 3 or 4 steps back to make her come...

    The real secret is to have a theme. My day (night?) job is an astronomer and science teacher so we use names that are all celestial in nature. Mostly stars or constellation names are our usual MO. ...

    To answer the question you asked - plan on a week. The reality is it will depend on the timing of the bitch owner. If she's actually ready to breed, it'll take maybe 3 days to get 2 solid ties.

    I've had great luck with these. Originally I used them for puppies, but found them to be ideal for fast eaters as well.

    I would consider $4k a steal for an HRCH female with clearances at 3 years old.

    If I were selling such an animal I would aim in the $6000-$8000 range if she was completely healthy.

    Have you tried retrieving in a different location? Dogs are so situationally oriented that just a change of scenery can really help.

    I'd also be willing to suggest Tom Dokken's series. It's affordable and a well put together series. It goes nicely with his books too.
