    PRA Cord 1 & Laforas

    I was just wondering if anyone can tell me their experiences of PRA Cord 1 and Laforas in other countries. We have both in our dachshund population in the UK and it is something most reputable breeders are working hard to eradicate. We are able to test for the PRA Cord 1 via an animal Health...

    Connie has now attended her second agility lesson and things are going surprisingly well! She absolutely loves the tunnel but getting her to wait at one end till I get to the other is proving a bit of a challenge, her enthusiasm is a slight disadvantage at times! The ramps she has taken to...
