    To breed properly you will find that the cost will require the amount you are charging to sell the puppies to (if you are lucky) break even. Breeders don't make their money on breeding as much as new...

    Should I be concerned?

    Puppy 9.5 weeks old and she seems to get the hiccup's ALL the time. Is this normal or is something going on and I should have her checked out?

    He's young. Some do some don't. Don't judge him this early. Some of the best dogs don't come on till 6-7-8 months old. Like Wayne said, chasing it is good.

    On the lazy sit, just step on the foot that is kicked out to the side. She will pull it back in under her and sit strait. It is going to be a constant reminder you are going to have to do. Hopefully...

    Airline restrictions say no less than 10 degree. I shipped my dog in February to Minn/StPaul and the high was 18 degrees. She was a 30 pound toller and had no problems at all.

    Just cuz she does it, I don't force anything. She learned sit with treats and I started blowing the whistle at the same time. Now if I blow the whistle she sits. Why not?

    Had the Shaggy pro hunter on my old boat - way overpriced and not real durable. Last year on the new boat I went with the Avery quikset blind and like it much better.

    I would try the force to pile on land to the water. Line bumpers to the pile and send on line to each bumper until pile is reached. Do it on a calm day so bumpers stay at specific spots in the water.
