 Parvo Virus lives in many localities.  This is a very deadly disease.

Please do not bring your puppies anywhere
where an un-vaccinated puppy/dog may be able to run until he/she has had the full series of puppy vaccinations!  This includes puppy kindergarten classes no matter what the training facility says. Your puppy is at risk until fully vaccinated!
 

  I feed my dogs Nutri Source large breed Chicken and Rice dog food.  It is a highly rated 4 paw dog food that has never had a recall.

 DOG FOOD ALERT!!!

Click here to read the update on the FDA’s alert on grain free diets. . This can potentially mean a matter of life and death since it could cause congestive heart failure in your dog! Please be aware that Nurtrisource is on the list, but that is for their grain free diet.


If you are considering using a different dog food for your puppy/dog, please look at the protein/fat as recommended on my contract for growing Golden Retriever puppies and check this dog food recall list to make sure your food of choice is not on it.

 I highly recommend Victoria Stilwell's training methods.  She has a show on Animal Planet called It's Me or the Dog.  She also has a book with the same name. On her site she has several "how to" videos with basic training techniques.   This is her official website:

 GOOD BEGINNER BOOKS I RECOMMEND

(both available on Amazon)

Family Friendly Dog Training   by Patricia B. McConnell, Ph.D. and Aimee M. Moore


SOCIAL, CIVIL, AD SAVVY; TRAINING AND SOCIALIZING PUPPIES TO BECOME THE BEST POSSIBLE DOGS  by Laura VanArendonk Baugh CPDT-KA KPACTP


   When looking for a puppy class and dog trainer, look for one that uses positive-based training.  I also LOVE clicker training!  It is amazing how fast a puppy/dog can learn using this method.  Don't worry, you won't need to carry a clicker around with you for the rest of your life.  It is something that is used to initially teach a new concept/word.  Then it is slowly phased out... just like treats.
