So you have a problem...

Seek Professional Advise

I get contacted by a lot dog people seeking advise...typically by "breeders" seeking free breeding advise, or owners that got a dog from someone I do not know and now they are seeking free medical advise or free training  advise.

 

If you got a dog from us, please feel free to contact us any time, as I believe owners have EVERY RIGHT to contact their breeders for assistance. We want to help our clients, especially since our breeding program is designed to PREVENT problems, not to create them. Surprisingly though, when this happens, it is almost always people that I have NEVER DONE BUSINESS  WITH...PEOPLE I DO NOT KNOW. They are from all over the country that want to discuss issues with their dog(s).

I do not have a magic wand, and odds are...EVEN IF YOU PAID  ME, I probably could not fix your issue over a computer or  phone, for there is NO WAY FOR ME TO KNOW IF YOU ARE ASSESSING or DIAGNOSING THE SITUATION  CORRECTLY. In fact, I would bet that if you are not able to fix the issue yourself, then it is most likely that  you are not able to diagnose the cause of the issue correctly either. Without proper diagnosis, it is impossible for someone to provide an appropriate course of corrective action.

WITHOUT OBSERVING YOUR INTERACTIONS WITH THE DOG, THEN FOR ALL I KNOW, YOU MAY BE CAUSING THE PROBLEM.

So, here is my advise...

What type of problem do you have?

MEDICAL TIPS- If it is a medical issue, don't get advise online or over the phone. Take the dog to a vet to get a proper diagnosis and an appropriate course of corrective action...and expect a bill. 


BEHAVIORAL TIPS- If it is a behavioral issue, find a qualified trainer in your area to get a proper diagnosis and an appropriate course of corrective action...and expect a bill. 


BREEDING TIPS- If you are  seeking to breed your dog(s) and need advise, find a qualified breeder (myself or someone else) to get a proper diagnosis and an appropriate course of corrective action...and expect a bill.

Hiring a professional.

Stop being cheap, as your animal's well being depends on you. Do you ask a mechanic to fix your car for free? Seeking professional advise is a good thing, but seeking free advise, is a good way to make a problem worse. If you really want good results, go to a  professional that is able (within your proximity) when professional assessment is required.


If proximity is not required to assess the situation, then online advise may be appropriate. .   In any  case, expect to compensate professionals for their knowledge, experience, and skills...abilities that you do not have...as they had to  work and pay to acquire such abilities.
