Re: Our host Gun Dog Supply

The collars which I just received for replacing the poor quality ones in my Garmin P10s , are no better , or no worse then Garmin's originals. Garmins roller collars are better but at 2x the price of those I got from Gun Dog Supply.
At least these are affordable to throw away every 5 months.

I would look at size of the stools. If the dog is passing the food rather then digesting,then increasing volume won't help. Believe you dont want to feed 2X a day but that is what I do. 4cups at a time is a lot to process.
