    I HAVE seen cats at tests on leash. My philosophy is, if your dog is truly competent to run hunt tests, he/she knows fully well what his/her task is that day. It's not to go visit the gallery. ...

    You've gotten some good suggestions there. If indeed you are looking for chocolate, it'd be good to get on a breeder's wait list now if your part of the country is like mine. There are not that...

    This is sad to hear considering the JH is supposed to be the "hook" for most newbies to the sport. I LOVE JH. I also do obedience and tracking and have done some agility in the past when my back...

    Even a dry bite (rattler) has produced a lot of swelling here. I had a 10.5 wk old pup bit on the muzzle in early June and he was very pathetic looking for a few days, but thankfully came thru fine...

    Julie, did you mean to write 15/25 protein/fat or 25 (protein)/15(fat)? I've had the same issues pop up w/ some of my lab pups if they had too much Ca++ in their diet.
