Hunt for Food I This test begins with a piece of jerky tied on a string and dragged to attract the pup’s interest and see how interested it is, how hard it will work to get it, if it will follow its movement when raised high and how hard it will work to keep it as the tester jerks, tugs and generally prevents the pup from easily eating it.

Cel’s note: What Janet was referring to was her initial approach to the jerky. She circled it, examining it from all sides, before deciding she wanted it. She did the same thing at 33 days when we introduced toys for the first time, with a small life-like weasel toy. Once she investigated it, she pounced and played and played and played with it.

The NuVet people had tried to recruit me for their breeder program for several years but it wasn’t until I was getting frustrated at my inability to get a soft, shiny coat on Quasi that I decided to try their products. I finally told the NuVet people I would never recommend any product without trying it first, and that I’d like to try their NuVet Plus on Quasi. They sent a free two-month supply and at the end of the trial period I was seeing enough improvement that I signed up for their breeder program.   [READ MORE]
