Some said get the Collar on sooner rather then later, so she...

This seems an absurdly large sum, especially considering the current research that fixing a puppy who is...

Whenever I take him to meet a new friend he isn't bothered by them until they try to pet him or pick him up. He starts barking and will even nip at them. I...
