Re: Leashing Pulling Problem

It's not a "you" problem, it's a lab thing. I've had labs for the last 30 years and regardless of their extensive obedience training (I got both of mine to competition level) they continued to pull when we walked outside. The No Pull Harness available at Walmart helped with this a lot. The harness p...

Re: Help puppy always biting at my feet

OFA Ratings - Chow Chow Breeders

Hi all, I'm considering adding a chow chow to my household and have been doing some research. My last dogs were all Labradors and most of the reputable Labrador breeders had the OFA ratings (hips, elbows) and CERF (eyes) of their breeding stock on their websites. Is this not the case for chow chow b...
