23 Nov No Comments timbearden Breeder Education, Puppy Education

As I sit here next my dog Tina who now wears the cone of shame I’m reminded of the debate about dewclaw removal. For many years I’ve seen it somewhat inhumane to remove them.  Now, I’m a little more open to the idea. For goldens I do see them use
