    Collar conditioning is a fairly simple part of training. Before I made my first attempt, I was going through the same thing. I didn't want to over pressure or under pressure and not get the same...

    I agree "hammer fetch" I had to do that to cure my dog. Only took a couple of days and he has never had a problem since.

    I had a guy tell me he heard that purebreds can't have any white on them and asked me if I could prove I had a purebred lab. Imagine how well that went over!

    IMO, riding it out and re-homing them on Craigslist is probably your best option. My first hunting dog from when I was a teenager was a Lab/Springer mix who was from an oops. To you and I that litter...

    I agree with what most people are saying. Feed twice a day. Generally I feed 1/3 of the pups food in the morning and then the other 2/3 at night. They sleep better on a full belly and it helps with...

    You can change the tone of both words and he'll be able to distinguish between the 2. I had 2 dogs here with the same name. I just put emphasis in different parts of their name. They understood.

    I do the same thing with taping wings onto bumpers. On my young pups, that is all I use. Another fun game is to have them laying in the grass and let your puppy find them and bring them to you....

    I've had that happen. When I corrected the problem I simplified some doubles. Once lining and sending him I watched where his nose was pointing. As soon as he turned his head to the other bird, he...

    I am testing them early because I know there will be EIC carriers. The sooner know what I have, the sooner I can take deposits on them. Yes, using dew claws.

    EIC testing a full litter

    I have a planned litter and will be testing the entire litter for EIC. What is the best way to keep the clears marked separate form the carriers? Although I have heard it has been done, I don't plan...

    Sounds like you have a heck of a dog there, Tater. I just got an FC Elwood X GRHRCH UH Diva MH pup. Be nice to see him start out his career (minus injury) like that!

    Congrats and best of luck in the future! I ran a hard charging dog in JH last year. He pulled so hard I used a horse lead so I could hold on to him better. One of the judges told me he had a tow...

    He may be lacking enough protein in his diet (eating poop). Not putting on weight could very well be form the same thing. I would try a grain free food. One thing I do for my dogs who need extra...

    Sorry for your loss. I just recently lost a great all around female "Dewey's High Brass Mini Mag". We didn't have her long but she left her mark on dogs to be remembered. Great companion and great...

    I agree with most of the population here that Dewey was affected. I had a daughter of his who was a carrier. Threw some pretty amazing pups. He just tested one of her males from her final litter, He...
