    I think you're describing Fast CAT. I don't know a ton about it but our local Lab club offered one a couple months ago - they are open to all breeds and supposedly a lot of fun. I would have...

    Swimming is excellent exercise for an aging dog - I really think that is a large part of why mine have all aged so well so far. My vet has in the past given me NSAIDS to use on an "as needed" basis...

    Yes, exactly what I want to know - we used to have one of those pools (I think it was the next size up) when our kids were little, but I never could figure a good way in/out for the dogs.

    Yeah, mine tend to tip over and/or sit in their collapsible bowl, so I usually use a bucket that I clip to the inside pole on the crate to keep them from tipping it. I wish they were better with...

    LOL ... that came from the emergency vet where they were born (Chloe needed an emergency c-section as she never went into labor. We lost 3 black pups out of the 5 she was carrying). When the vet...

    I believe that if the dog is registered under an acceptable (to the AKC) foreign registry it can be imported and given AKC registration, and if so can compete in shows. Hope that helps!
  12. Yellow girls made their Open debut this past weekend

    They both did well. Cookie earned an Open B 3rd with a 197 despite needing work on her fronts and finishes. Sass had 2 substantials that kept her out of the ribbons (she was .5 behind the 4th...

    I agree with all of this. All of mine were sleeping through the night by that age - pretty much by 10 weeks or so. So if he isn't, I would think it's one of two things. First, something...

    Well, given I compete in Obedience we do a lot of training, but not necessarily every day. We do train a lot of things - each exercise has multiple components and we work on all of it. Sounds...

    I supposed it's possible if used incorrectly any of those (and even a regular buckle collar) can do damage, but I've used prong collars to train dogs for 20+ years now with no problems. I've also...

    I had a friend who's flat-coat aspirated a blade of grass while retrieving and ended up with pneumonia. Pretty much anything getting in the lungs other than air can do it.
