    Mucus Poop

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me. I have a lab (he’s about a year and a half) that had diarrhoea exactly one week ago today. I contacted a vet that suggested it was a bug and to monitor him. By Tuesday, he appeared to be getting better but Wednesday he took it again, this time...

    Improving good recall to 100% recall

    Hi, My 15 month old Labrador has a good recall. I use a whistle and she comes running - most of the time. Sometimes she sniffers a bit more and then comes other times if she found something interesting (e.g. something she thinks she can eat and she thinks she can eat nearly anything ;-) she...

    I've just moved into a new house and my new housemate (who was here before I moved in) has a 4 yr old male springer spaniel. Mine is an almost 2 year old female labrador.

    Best raw food brand

    Hi! I have an almost 2 yr old female Labrador, she is fairly small for a lab, around 26kg. I started feeding her raw earlier this year and it’s worked great.

    My labrador is nervous when we have house visitors

    Hello, I have a 3 year old lab called Poppy. She's a very excitable dog and is usually very bouncy when she meets people on our walks. Having said that, when we have friends/family over to our house, the majority of the time she is incredibly quiet and almost cowers in her bed. If they go near...
