    Honest question, Meredith - do you offer this service for free to the owners or do you offer to pay them for the dog?

    All in all, I think your heart is in the right place Fritz, although I don't know if limited registration will really fix the breedings that aren't necessarily bettering the breed. What clearly...

    I use whatever motivates my dogs to TEACH a concept. As young dogs are highly motivated by food it is a good tool.

    I have always done a simple Sit and never bothered with the Stay. I do,...

    Honest question, Dave - how many bitches has this male bred before? Is he experienced?

    Was there a significant height difference in the dogs?

    This. And it can lead to the dreaded Craigslist ad: "Purebred labs... parents could have been registerred but never were." "Best huting dogs ive ever scene" (spelling errors on purpose)

    You would first need to condition him to the idea that the electronic stimulation means he needs to come to you. This is generally done in the yard with a check cord on the dog. Once you have...

    When I'm home and in the house... my dogs are with me in the house. When I'm at work, the dogs are outside in their pens. The reason for that is very simple - the more time you spend with the dog,...

    It's not uncommon at all.

    Personally... I'd put up the wings for now and keep the retrieving to a minimum. I know there's a great concern for "making sure he'll play fetch," but it's almost...

    Lone female?

    Ours always seem to go together or in succession. If there's no other females to put the hormones in the air, it's not surprising for her to be that late. I wouldn't worry at all,...

    They make glow in the dark bumpers.

    Truck headlights for longer marks?

    I also do some training just in the house and really try to hammer the obedience when it's too dark out to train well.

    If at all possible, we don't leave ours in the kennels long enough for them to relieve themselves inside the pens. We air the dogs often enough to prevent the mess.

    I would argue it is MORE difficult to have a well trained retriever by leaving it in a kennel all the time instead of raising them in the house with you and your family. You have a reliable dog by...

    6 weeks is early. I just sold a 7 week male and he had one in and one out. I wouldn't be worried about it now. The reality is if you spend enough time and money to get him to stud-worthy hunt test...

    Are you looking for something more sophisticated than your local veterinarian? My vet has done all my dogs and we've yet to get a score less than Good.

    My advice would be to discuss it casually... say around a BBQ. Then both sides think it over a while, but the most important part for me would be to have everything in writing.
