Dog Talk #359 (2/08/2014)

Dog Talk (2/08/2014) #359: The Puppy Show! Linda Hartheimer, of Grayhart Weimaraners in Saddle River, in New Jersey, talks about exposing very young puppies to scent and other stimuli which makes them perform better at hunt tests later in their competitive lives; Pat Hastings is a highly sought-after “litter evaluator” who examines a whole litter of puppies three days before or after they reach eight weeks old and can determine their physical strengths and weaknesses; Cristine of Shady Lane Kennels requires pre-paid puppy classes and pre-purchased quality food from her puppy buyers, and Tracie explains the difference between Cockapoos and other johnny-come-lately poodle crosses.
