    Good luck! I like the approach (I think it was TuMicks who did it) of not allowing the retrieve unless his manners are what you want. You can't behave? Then back in the truck with you. I...

    Love this!!! I agree 100% ... I don't think it even matters what you do, but find something.

    We did her to a field training day when she was a year old, but the problem we had with her was she loses her soft mouth when she gets excited so she was crunching the bird. Now that she is almost...

    After Advanced there is Excellent and Masters, but I'm not sure what the signs are like for those yet - one step at a time! There's only 1 or 2 jumps with a max height of 16 inches (she's been...
  5. Not a big deal considering but Chloe got a new title

    We competed in Rally Novice at Potomac and she went 3/3 with perfect scores each time to earn her RN. Given her level of training, that's not a shock - the only question going in was whether I...

    Glad it worked! Just a note though - be very careful about leaving open chip bags where dogs can get to them ... quite a few have suffocated in chip bags and dog food bags. Really, any plastic bag...

    Yay! We tried it once at a show and loved it, but there really isn't anywhere close enough to practice on a regular basis. I do know several people who compete regularly, and one who is in the...

    Jolie had an attack of this - I think she was 13 at the time. It was very scary - I too thought she was having a stroke but as soon as the vet saw her he said it was vestibular - her eyes were...

    Conversely, there are no studies proving that single dogs aren't lonely - just because a dog that lives as an only doesn't appear unhappy doesn't mean it wouldn't be happier being part of a multi-dog...

    Yeah, mine have had raw eggs (shell and all before). Most recently when I accidentally dropped one on the floor while cooking and Cookie helped clean up, LOL. They've only had one at a time...

    I agree - plus I know at our training building and at many show sites space is at a premium so it would be easier to fit a 36 inch in .. I am currently at a Lab specialty (Potomac), and the VAST...

    Mulder was 24" and 83lbs and we used a 36 inch crate for shows and car travel and he was fine. If he was going to be crated all day at home, I probably would have gotten a bigger one, but he...

    I guess Sass is special, LOL. For a while she was managing to hook her nail in the zipper pull and unzip it, but she seems to have forgotten how now that she is older.

    We've had at least two labs since 1999. At one point we even had 4. For about a month 4 years ago we were back down to one - it was between when we lost Mulder and Chloe had her pups. Three...

    I like my Noz2Noz crates - I have two 36" ones. As for the thing with the zipper, there is a little hook on the crate that can be used to keep the dog from unzipping the crate, although I'm pretty...

    I'm glad the dog is doing okay, and even on-leash there are no guarantees. I can't count the number of times I've been walking the dogs in the neighborhood (on leash) and Sass has managed to find...

    I've used citronella based bark collars on my young dogs before (to keep them from barking hysterically in the crate during class while the other one was being worked). Works great on Sass - one...

    I agree with everyone else - 3 meals of 3/4 cup at that age seems right. My young girls, who are on the smaller side (<60lbs) never needed more than that, but I remember at one point feeding their...

    If he does it while you are right there, then you could try training him to lay on a mat nearby and to stay there until released. You could release/reward with a taste of whatever you were cooking...
