The DM test is only $65, which is a drop in the bucket when it comes to expenses for a breeding dog. The test may not be 100% accurate, but it's definitely something I would use as a guide when...

Is your dog on monthly heartworm prevention? Many of the brands commonly used also have a dewormer for the more common types of worms.

Titles don't necessarily make a trainer - I have seen too many people get through trials only because of handholding from their trainer. On their own they'd never be able to title a dog (or train...

A good friend of mine received her puppy from Marsha about a week (?) ago, and she is just in love with him. He's a super nice puppy and shipping to NJ was no problem.

Not exactly the same situation but one of my previous JRT's had a pretty nasty underbite. My vet said it wouldn't correct itself, and I knew he was probably right, but I wanted to wait it out as long...

It can be very hit or miss. On Kira's ultrasound, the vet saw 5-6 puppies.She ended up having 11 (although not all of them survived). With my JRT's (litters of 3-4) the US has always been off by one.

I personally would go ahead and do the neuter - it's a little earlier than would be ideal, but it may be now or never. It should only add a few minutes onto the time he'll need to be under anesthesia.

It should be strong enough but I would agree that it may cut into your hands. I had a biothane leash really cut up my hands once. We have a show leash sent by Lee in 3/8" - it is very strong but we'd...
