    Can't speak to other clinics but a local Lab group puts on one near me that I've used several times. The vet that donates his time (and his clinic) to do the OFA xrays for hips and elbows is very...

    I actually started taking Puffin for cold laser and acupuncture when she was about that age. She'd slowed down a little, but the main reason was I had a young dog that was paralyzed in an accident...

    (Emphasis mine). While it's true that there's no cure for DM, and its progression can't be reversed; you do the dogs a disservice by stating this as fact. Especially if you have no personal...

    It's pretty commonly taught in obedience (for obedience trials) and actually, having been training with several loudmouth newbies recently, this kind of training would benefit many. Go to a big...

    We have a dog cemetery here and 3 generations that lived here are buried there. I had considered cremation, and may well do that at some point, but the first one we buried, died here quietly in her...

    I usually teach this in preparation to teach the whistle sit. When you're first teaching the whistle sit, the dog wants to come sit at heel, next to you. So if you teach it to plant its butt and...

    Get some vet wrap and make a dew rag around the dog's ear taping it to his head to keep him from shaking it. Usher got a tiny split at the very bottom of one ear when he was about a year old (you...

    Have to agree with Delaware on this; it's one of my pet peeves as well. I think people hear it and start saying it because they think it sounds cooler than "my dog's daddy is... " . When I hear it I...

    Depends on how old the pup is too. If under 5 mos., an hour is too long of a lesson. It's fine in a group but not one on one. I take all mine to puppy class (we have a very good AKC club nearby)....

    I believe the dilute gene does change black to charcoal. It acts as a modifier on the base coat, diluting it. So a black Lab that carried no other colors but had the dilution gene, bred to another...

    I too found this statement offensive. My ancestors including Robert E. Lee, have lived in Virginia for over 400 years. Cary Alsobrook got it right: the large majority of people that display the flag...
