Another Passed On

Five weeks ago I buried my 15 year old male. Yesterday I had to have my 10 year old master hunter female put down. :( Nine months ago she had a stroke--she came out of it but was blind. That switched her from a part time house dog to a full time house dog. She wasn't in pain, her tail was always wag...

Re: GSP lost 7 pounds in year

If your dog runs as much as you say he does, I'd worry about twisted stomach if you load him up on feed in the morning before running him. just something to think about. It's always better to feed at night--that way they have time to digest the food and clear the stomach before running. PPP is 30/20...

I lost another good dog, Quick Shooter SH :cry: I almost got 15 years out of him. He was a good co-pilot & a great hunting dog. Pheasants were his game and there weren't many better :!: He knew how to pin ND, SD, & NE. ringnecks. In the off season I played the AKC hunt tests games with him. He also ...

Re: Outside kennels, what would you do different

Pour your concrete pad about a foot bigger(on all sides) then your kennels-- that way you can run your lawn mower tires on the concrete -- keeping grass and weeds from growing up in the fence. Also have bottom bar of the kennel elevated about 2", so you can wash the waste out under the fence.

Re: Steadying a Dog On Wild Birds

If you start useing the e-collar when he starts to go in on the birds you will get a dog that blinks birds to avoid being shocked. He'll try to avoid birds so he doesn't get shocked. That's how you get a dog to avoid deer, snakes, etc. -- when they smell or see deer, snakes, etc, you crank the colla...
