Canine College

We realized recently that we have tremendous resources within our own family group: lots of education, experience, and advice to give. We get questions almost daily about health and behavior issues about our dogs and so we thought we'd try to get everyone together. So what do you have to do? Send your questions in! Email and pose your questions. We'll answer them here. Note that we don't pretend to be experts or veterinarians. We are hoping to just give you "guidelines," never substitute our opinions or judgments for a vet's or professional behaviorist's advice. If we think you need to see a pro, we'll say so. Don't be shy, and don't think any question is 'stupid,' there's no such thing.
