Cage Free Salon: Is It Safe?

Hello Michell. I am finally opening my own dog grooming salon. I am so excited! I am very strongly leaning toward a cage–free salon.

Surviving the Sporting Shortage

“Hi there Michell. I have been trying to find a sporting dog to use as a model for my certification exam. We have lots of Labs and Goldens but hardly any Springers, Setters or Cockers.

Any suggestions?”

They could all do at least one more pet per day, if you ask me.
