Endless Mountain Labradors by Donna Stanley - 6d ago
If you are a “true” dog person you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about.  All those trips out into the yard in the rain or snow to check “the poop.” Many times it gives us an idea if our dogs are getting the nutrients they need, or if they are stressed, and that its not watery or runny. Has he pooped? When?  What texture?  I mean, its like we are examining baby diapers all the time like a good mother. Right? Or are we all just crazy?  LOL Although I predominantly feed a  raw diet,  my daughter had an experience she […]

Many people ask me about feeding eggs to their dog. First of all…I have done this and will continue to this, but only after studying under world-renown holistic veterinarian, Dr. Ian Billinghurst who is one vet who did 40 years of research on raw diet and included a large part of whether to feed eggs to our canine family members . Especially after learning that Americans were only expecting their dogs to live to 15-16, yet his dog, the dogs in Australia, and in Europe EXPECT their dogs to live into their 20’s !!! So obviously, I sat up and […]

LOL…that came out sounding kinda scary, huh? Like I was going to blog on theft of dog…NOPE.. Ever Wonder Why Your Labrador Changes Personalities or Behavior around different dogs???? Fall/winter has hit here in the Endless Mt.’s and I’m writing this blog from our Lake House (about 10 miles from Aspen Hall, our home). We spend about 2-3 days a week here, and we can handle 2 dogs here. We have recently been brining Amy and Reign who are pretty good going anywhere, but something changed when they began to spend time at the Lake House together with us each […]

Ever wonder where you’ll get your dog once all dogs have been required to be neutered or spayed as the pressure of Animal Rights Activists manage to get laws passed saying you can’t “own” a dog…I mean…what will you do? I know the ARA’s are not giving up their pets.  Have they looked into the future and seen the possible black market for pets someday?) And since “adopt don’t shop” has become so popular, shelters—only in certain parts of the country—are shipping in thousands of dogs from other countries—I’m sure you’ve heard the word “meat dog.” In a perfect world […]

The TOP FIVE MISTAKES people make in choosing their labrador: …(hint) its more about choosing a breeder than a pup. 1.  A breeder should NEVER resort to tearing down other kennels or breeders names in order to sell you a pup, whether that be on the phone or somewhere else. Trust me. From being in the dog show world long enough, I’ve observed this time and time again. How about they tell you all the GOOD things about their dogs?? 2.  Their response should be timely and professional. They will be interviewing you, so don’t be surprised if they have […]

This is a hard blog to post, but it is one that has been on my heart for years.  In the world of professional dog breeding there are some rules of thumb to remember when evaluating the motivation of the breeder. First of all, someone who is trying to better the breed MUST have an alternate income. If someone breeds dogs “for a living”, then the motivation is profit.  If the breeder has a well-established business or well- paying job, then labradors can be a hobby that they put their well-earned money into. Many people ask us what we do […]

Buyer Beware: When purchasing a pup from a breeder, you need to ask some very important questions. 90% of professional breeders (especially those who show their dogs!!!) these days are starting to add “fine print” at the END of the sale (springing it on you at the last minute, or trying to fudge what they are actually doing). Ask if there is a spay/neuter contract (some will REQUIRE you to spay or neuter by a certain age…too early…therefore stunting the growth of your dog, not allowing it to reach its full maturity and stature….a vet won’t tell you this…they only […]
