Re: Quick Question

Many thanks for the replies and suggestions, folks. Yes, she is limiting the pup's interaction with his big brother, but wanted something to put on him, just in case. I relayed your suggestions to her, and we'll see how things go​. Again, thank you.

Quick Question

Hey, folks. I know I don't post here much, more of a lurker, I guess, picking up useful information. I do need to be more active, I guess. Anyway, here's my question. A lady I know at a Lab forum I go to has a 7 yr. old Lab, who recently had surgery for laryngeal paralysis. He's recovering fine, but...

Re: What are some of the best dog houses?

I've got a K9 Kondo Dog Den 3. As for what makes it so nice...

It's made out of steel, which is nice with my power chewer Lab. Insulated on all 6 sides. Raised up off the ground. Has a swinging door with a rain shroud. And a removable roof, which makes it really easy to add or change bedding.

Re: Dog crapping while hunting?

Heh...this last pheasant season, I hunted with several guys who hadn't been out yet with my Lab, Diesel. I warned them that in the first 50 yards, they'd see him crap twice and pee a half dozen times. They thought I was kidding... I put it down to him being so excited about going hunting. He just ca...

Re: New e-collar, help?

I use the tone on my collar to check it's on, of course. And for the pooch it's used as an attention getter, like saying his name. In training, to reinforce that I want him to listen. When pheasant hunting, if he starts to get too far out, I just beep his collar and he moves back in. It's a handy fe...

My first Lab would roll in it. It was an opening day of pheasant season tradition for many years. Every year...go hunting, dog rolls in poop, send dog into lake to rinse off the worst of it. My current Lab loves to eat it. I stop him if I catch him in time, otherwise if I don't he gets his snack. It...

Re: Dog food

Middle of the road for me. I don't feed the super cheap food, that I don't like the ingredients, and ends up in bigger piles in my yard. Or the real expensive stuff that's going to break my bank account.

Diesel get Country Vet Sportsman's Select, and does really well on it.

Re: Dog Den 2

I've got a Dog Den 3 for my Lab. Starting out, I just latched the door open for a couple days to let him get used to his new house. Once I let the door down, it only took him a few minutes to figure it out.

Best dog house I've ever had. Certainly money well spent.
