re: What's the scoops on "white labs"? - CatSquirrel
Nice looking dog! To the OP: As I remember, the AKC standard (for weight) is 65-80 lbs for dogs and 55-70 lbs for bitches. Supposed to be shown in working weight, which we all know isn’t adhered to in show rings. If you’re looking for a simple pet, get whatever you want. If you’re looking...

re: Breeding Dogs - CatSquirrel
My suggestion to the OP is to tell the bitch owner you will take the $700 stud fee and perhaps steer a prospective puppy buyer or two to his litter. If he balks in anyway, just walk. It's been my experience that lots of field dog owners tend to want to "preserve" their present dog's genes because...

re: My dog got bit by a beaver...what to do? - CatSquirrel
Just an opinion, but I'd give the dog 2 mg's of Benydryl per pound (plus a little) and knock her out. Then you can explore the wounds and make sure there isn't muscular damage. If it's just small skin wounds, then flush with povidone iodine. If it's deeper wounds, get to your vet. Monitor he...

re: Anyone have experience with Cory Baudoin training retrievers? - CatSquirrel
I've been training my own retrievers since 1984, mostly Labs and Goldens, including several All Age field trial dogs, Master Hunters, and Grand dogs. I also judge field trials and HRC events. I run more field trials than hunt tests these days, but I'm starting to get back into HRC tests as my olde...

re: Young lab hunting - CatSquirrel
It's really not an age thing, so much as what level of training they're at and the pup's general attitude. I hold back high pups. Generally, I try not to hunt a young dog until they're running rudimentary cold blinds and reasonably steady. But, for me, that's an ideal situation. You just have to...

re: I'm about to purchase my first hunting lab - CatSquirrel
Lots of information here...some good, some not so good. Here are a few suggestions: 1. Look up the members of Cajun Hunting Retriever Club. You may find some hands-on help. At the least, you can probably get into a training group. 2. Try to identify your goals for this dog. Do you want a ...

re: Anyone w/ a good sleeping bag recommendation? - CatSquirrel
I haven't bought a new bag in about 10 years, but Western Moutaineering and Feathered Friends used to be the best bags out there. However, they are not cheap! Unless you're planning a serious backpacking trip or have cash to spare, I'd have to pass. For your purposes, I'd recommend a Marmot. Dec...

re: Training a waterfowl retriever - CatSquirrel
My suggestion to the OP is to get with Joe Perron or Bill Autrey in the Alexandria area. Both are accomplished hunt test pros and Joe also breeds. I'd look closely at what he has to offer as far as puppies go. Even if you have to shell out a fair amount of cash, it's far easier to make chicken sa...

re: Honda rancher 350 won't idle - CatSquirrel
Concur on the rebuild and hose replacement. I have a 2001 Rancher and it was doing the EXACT same thing. I replaced the spark plug, replaced all of my hoses, and eventually ended up rebuilding the carb, and it runs like a top now. It's been a few years, but I picked up a rebuild kit for $21 ...

re: Dog question (heart worms) - CatSquirrel
If you're in Louisiana and the dog is that old, you can almost guarantee the dog is HW+ The Mississippi River delta region is the worst place in the country for HW's. Like other posters have stated, you will have to have the dog tested before administering any preventative. If the dog is +, the...

re: LA Golden Retriever Breeders - CatSquirrel
In general, you will pay more for a golden than a lab, especially out of health certified field lines. I realize the OP is looking for more of a "pet", but IMO, if you're buying a dog, at least get a field bred Golden. It cost just as much to feed and vet a boot licker as a decently bred field dog, ...
