Puppy Drag Janet and Bonnie had me bring my puppy drag, which is a piece of rope I fasten around my waist. Gunny sacks are attached to the rope and move enticingly as I move around outside, so the pups focus on biting and tugging on them instead of me. I normally wear this as I exercise the puppies’ mother each morning, but for the NN litter, with 15″ of snow on the ground and a bad knee, I hadn’t taken the chance of 9 puppies, tugging vigorously, making me fall and make the knee worse. Thus it was totally new to them and most pups had a great time as the tester drug it around the room, chasing, tugging and at times riding on 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]
