4 month old black lab. We're on vacation right now, about 3 hours from home visiting relatives. We got here Sunday night, diarrhea started Tuesday morning. Stress maybe?

Puppy is acting normal otherwise. Eating normally, drinking m...

Btw...flicking the nose didn't work on my guy either. Everyone said that was an effective correction but it didn't seem to bother him that much.

My Black Lab pup is 11 weeks and he won't stop nipping and mouthing everytime I make contact with him. I've corrected him continulosly and most of the romping and rough houseing stopped. But he is still mouthing and nipping everytime I pet him or...

I have a Black Lab and the breeder advised me that 2 years would be optimal. I guess you can do it whenever you choose especially if you are having a problem with marking. But that was the advice of my breeder.

I've read that when you move its good to take them on an extra extra long walk to simulate the concept of migrating. Never tried it but it makes a little sense.

Posted on: 10:40:21 PM 9/22/2006

Yes, that makes sense. You're absolutely right. We're out of our minds. Everyone here is saying virtualy the same thing over and over again but we're the ones that are crazy.

Good luck!
