Welcome to Walter's World

I'VE SAID IT BEFORE, AND I'LL SAY IT AGAIN -- ALL YOU NEED IN LIFE IS A DOG.

Walter Patrick Alstrup

BECAUSE DOGS CAN HAVE MIDDLE NAMES, TOO.

I'd like you all to meet Walter. He is a chocolate pointing labrador. He was born in November of 2020 and is from Melcher-Dallas, Iowa. He came from a tri-colored litter and was very shy at first. I brought him back to Denver with me after New Year's, and we have been inseparable ever since! He has been training hard for upland and waterfowl, and really loves just about anything outdoors. I'll post blogs about training with him and his milestones, and will try to share as many cute photos as possible... don't be fooled though, he is a monster. And I love him. If you join us for an event, chances are you'll meet Walter. And he is very excited to meet you!

Walter's current favorites...

So this chocolate chunk is now 16 months old! And he is still growing! Weighing in at 89 pounds, Walter is a my big little baby.


He still loves food and fetch more than anything, runs extra fast when he hears the word "biscuit", and prefers to sleep on his back. We are about to enter the next phase of training for him, but first we have to deal with a fractured toe.

Here are a few of his favorite things and items I order on repeat to keep this monster extra happy :)

Zesty Paws

As a Chocolate Labrador, Walter's skin and coat are extra oily... it's what makes him so soft, but also creates some issues. His skin is more sensitive and needs extra help with inflammation and irritations. These Zesty Paw chews were recommended by my vet and have been game-changers! Walter no longer chews or licks his paws incessantly. He loves how they taste, and they are relatively inexpensive! They have loads of great ingredients like probiotics and fish oil!

Nature Gnaws - Elk Antlers

Young dogs need good quality chew toys. I prefer all natural choices that help with Walter's urge to chew and that keep his teeth sparkly white! These gnaws are the perfect size and Walter simply loves them!
