I have one of those for Rolo and it pretty well slows down his pulling, but it sure doesn't stop him. Blue uses a Gentle Leader, which seems to work really well for him and no pulling at all, but Rolo can't stand that "thing" on his face. Good Luck and report your results back.

Thanks Mike, Don't know my vet does stress tests or not, but I will talk to him about it. And heartworm had also crossed my mind even though he's on preventative. Fact is, it seems so noticible that he's so 'laid back' because our other Britt, Blue is so incredibly active and he's twice Rolo's age. ...

Rolo and Blue started out with Innova and now I alternate between that and Natural Balance. I also throw in whatever leftovers that seem healthy.

My computer has been down for a couple of weeks now so I am happy to hear that Rosie checked out as ok. However, did I miss something? What tests did the vet run on her for the stamina/overheating proplem? Just curious as I want to have Rolo checked out as well. Hopefully he will check out ok, and i...

Mike,
Thanks for the heads up on the tongue color. I will keep and eye out on Rolo's tongue and bring it up to the vet next time he needs to go in. Hope Rosie is feeling ok and stops eating all the plants.

Mike, We have two Britts and the older dog can run all day long without wearing out. Rolo, our youngest (almost four years old) wears out very fast. Tonight at the dog park he ran around with a couple of dogs chasing him for about 5 minutes then came and laid down by us and was breathing quite heavi...
