    I use it all the time, and as Jeff and Darrin have said, you have good control. When I do it I drape my hand in the mouth and over the jaw without holding the jaw, and just move with the dog if it...

    It depends on the dog. I rarely need to restrain at the post, and if I do, it's more for my safety than anything else. I'd say maybe only 1 in 20 needs the post, at least in my world. I do find...

    I think the bigger issue is what you're training for. I always try to be open minded and learn new things and I think any good trainer is much the same, but I also have to be able to put those things...

    While I do really like and use a lot of Bill Hillmann's training, I still use a table for FF. Not with every dog, some don't need it and work very nicely using the Hillmann method. Bill and I had...

    Lots of well known dogs in the lineage....but the lack of health testing would be a red flag for me. I'd proceed with caution...and might take a gamble if the pup was simply being rehomed or only a...

    Steve, the first time I saw the wonder lead used, I just shook my head and thought it was silly. I tend to be a skeptic. But the trainer part of me was curious enough to spend the (back then) $20...

    I wish I had bought Mason.

    The kennels you mention from Menards, TSC, etc. are all pretty much the same, and they will not last long term, except maybe for a one or two dog owner who uses them...

    I've been very happy with Victor. High quality ingredients, and the dogs here do better than they did on ProPlan. Cost is better too....and yes, while it is great how Purina supports our sports and...

  17. Kudos to UKC/HRC. Finally....a registry steps up.

    Dilute "Labradors" are not eligible to run in HRC events. They aren't allowed to be UKC registered, and can only enter some events on PL (Performance Listing)....HRC is not one of those events. ...

    You'll have a hard time finding any responsible Chessie breeder that will purposely raise oversized dogs. While larger dogs do happen from good breeders, it's not done on purpose. There are a few...
