    Traction mats

    Headed to SD in two weeks and it has been plenty wet this year. Last report was secondary roads are pretty much impassable. I don't have a winch. Am looking for recommendation and reviews on good traction mats?

    Strained tendons

    My 10 month old has strained tendons in her wrist. Typical of the sporting dog she only has one gear and I cannot keep her drive down enough to give her time to heal. A long walk on a lead or long swims is just not enough exercise to keep her from driving us nuts during the day. I am looking...

    My 8 month old lab has really bad car sickness. Starts drooling immediately and then eventually spits up. This is my third lab and never an issue with the first two. I have always had them in the back seat area of my pickup. We have only made short trips here and there and now I am reluctant...

    Wpg enthusiasts

    So I am considering this breed as my next upland dog. I am a die hard lab guy but this breed has peaked my interest and that too of my wife. Because of the latter I am entertaining this breed. I am looking for honest feedback. It would be most helpful for a WPG owner who has lab experience...

    Older Lab Pain and stiffness prevention

    I have a nine year old lab. About 4 weeks from our annual trip to SD. We will hunt 5 days in a row. She stays in what I consider very good shape year round but we only get about 15-20 days in this field each pheasant season. I have noticed her getting a little ginger in her movements which I...
