    Start with pigeons. Smaller, cheaper, easier to fit many in a freezer, and they're the bird most dogs are started on. Ask a training group who sells them. I like the duck flock for dual BC/golden...

    To be blunt, I would look for a new vet. From what I've read, evidence indicates that each seizure tends to make it easier to have another one. This dog has been having long-lasting seizures that...

    You can get an ILP or PAL (I think it's called PAL now) on a golden/lab cross if it looks close enough to one or the other breed. PAL only allows spayed/neuter dogs, so the evaluators tend to be...

    Have you tried the 2-treat method of feeding pills? Put the pill in a treat the dog really likes. (I usually use butter; and none of my dogs are ever fooled by margarine. I've tried the pill...

    LOL! What do you recommend for dokkens?

    The salad in a jar is clever, but my salads are a little more simple-minded. Items needed:

    I had the tie-back surgery done on a standard poodle at 10.5 yr. He got aspiration pneumonia immediately, probably, the vets thought, he had inhaled vomit coming out of anesthesia. He was as sick...

    So awful. Makes me sick just thinking about it. I can't imagine what it must have been like to experience it. That is the motel I always stay in for Espanola trials. I had thought it was...

    Genetically, labs and goldens are very close. Probably a lot of crossing going on before the stud books closed, and probably a bit afterwards prior to DNA testing.

    Based on the way the OP phrased the question, his dog is not taking a cast into the wind. Before he sets up cold blinds or 3-peats or whatever, wouldn't the first step be far more basic? Shouldn't...

    Thanks, guys.
