joce - that makes sense to me. It does. And I can see how for alicat it works as well, because you both KNOW animals. I'm great at being able to guess what is going on with my dogs as well as I have more animal knowledge because I breed - BUT that ...

Unnecessary testing? If the vet is willing to take YOUR word on what is going on with your animal without seeing it, don't you think if they saw the animal that they could diagnose it without tests? My vet will give me basic stuff on my word as wel...

I think you are lucky alicat. I have dealt with breeders that use farm vets. The ones I dealt with (5 different breeders) the vet doesn't encourage the breeder to check stool samples on their litters or their dogs unless they see something fishy. I...

I am one of the lucky folks that has a "Super Vet" - in fact, my clinic has 2 vets that I am in love with. Here's a few pointers on finding a good vet :

I have on average 8 litters a year so I would be included in this. I have 24 dogs - not all breeders as seve...

Okay, I'm in 100% agreement with IcyHound here. "punishing" the dog is not the best way to try and get him to quit. When you get a herding breed dog you had better be prepared for herding behavior. If you physically punish him for what I call "play...

Something that a lot of folks don't know is that the average dog doesn't have full bladder or bowel control until they are about 6 months old. It is possible that with her body developing and growing she just doesn't have the bladder control that s...

Have you ever heard someone say that people seem to resemble their dogs - you WANT this to happen in the personality/temperament department.

Twinkletoes made some good points - also look at :
How heavy a hand is required to train t...

Okay, I can see the purpose intended behind crosses like Lab x Poodle (a great family pet that doesn't have the shedding problems for folks with allergies).

What ticks me off about crossbreeding that is being done is when two breeds wit...
