My current hunting partner is up against father time and I feel this may be her last season. That said I am looking at breedings and doing my homework on litters but do have a question... is there a way to avoid purchasing a whiner? My current lab whines, always has & is completely unaware of it. It's not loud enough to affect hunting but enough to annoy me If it's possible I would like to avoid that trait in the future. I'v read that whining is genetic, would researching the parents & they're manners in regards to whining help? Any advice is appreciated.
