Heard the dog that got 3rd in the derby beached early on both birds in the 4th series while others swam down the shore. Just wondering what kind of format the judges were using for this is all?

The placements are done on 4 series.
Beaching early is not, by itself, an indication of a poor mark.

Unless I'm mistaken, the derby is suppose to be judged on marking and not trained abilities.

"If" you wanted to set up down the shore birds than set it up such a way that "IF" the puppy beaches early he/she CAN NOT recover to find the bird.
But you can NOT penalize the dog for having the knowledge to know where his/her birds are.(marking ability)
Big difference.
That's in all-age stakes as well. Good judges set sinarious up where "Fido" gets lost by being a "cheater" than you have to handle etc..............
Congrads to all. Open results yet???

One of my pet peeves is people thinking whoever does best in the last series is always the winner.

Each bird in each series matters. When determining placements, each series has to be evaluated, bird by bird.

I have no idea about this trial or anyone in it. But just remember, there will be up to 8 birds in a derby that could be judged. The first bird is just as important as the last.

No kidding and by the judges holding the books that weekend.

Nice job Echo41725 singling out a specific dog. You're going to make a lot of friends that way.

Just asking a question is all. Didn't mean to step on anyones feelings. I understand all the yada yada about how each bird is judged and so on. Lets say 5 dogs are pretty much even going into the 4th series and you have 2 dogs that hammer both marks, 2 dogs that beach early on one bird and then do a nice job on the long bird, and then another dog that beaches early on both birds.

Since we have some many brilliant DOG people on here i'm sure MOST of you could determine how the placements should go.

Also as i mentioned on my first post - this was what i heard.

Seems a lot of folks are taking this to heart on here if that's not the way it went down.

Well if you had been judging you would have seen it, not "heard" it.

that's the problem with internet judging, what you hear and what MAY have actually happened, and what the judges MAY have seen, could be as different as night and day...its very easy to criticize the judging from the confines of your laptop;)

Ok lets say that I saw the 4th series of the derby. Lets say that the judges set up a 370 yard swim. What is the point of this mark? If I were running this mark the objective of this mark would be to STAY IN THE WATER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey mr. overdone apostrophes,

The point of any field trial marking test should be that the best marking dog wins. If avoiding the obstacle (water or whatever) influences their ability to do to, so be it. If it doesn't, well that's a damn fine marking dog.

So let's say you run sum then thar field trials and let us know know how that goes for ya.

Thanks to Jay Chesshir, Keith Holsted, Mark Miles and others for putting on a great trial in the situation that y'all faced on losing your grounds.

Thanks to the competitors for displaying your dogs and sportsmanship, even if it was early, some with little water work or training. I never heard an excuse out of any of you. Nor did I hear any moaning and groaning. Not to say there wasn't any going on in our gallery, but I didn't make the internet, yet. :D (fwiw, one series isn't the only series that the judges judge out of 4)

Congrats,
Tim

Ok Mrs. Melanie were you there?????? Lets say you and I go out training tomorrow and we set up a 350-400 yard swim on a mark. Lets say your dog beeches half way out and runs the bank 200-250 yards around the edge of the bank to the chicken. Would that be ok with you? Is that "REAL MARKING" to you?

Chad,
You'll have to go to California. Ms. Melanie's probation officer won't allow her to go out of state.
Just trying to help in the worst way,

Is that "REAL MARKING" to you?How is that not real marking ??? I have judges several derbies and have also used the traditional two down the shore or have a big swim. Yes i have placed a dog higher that has gotten out way early but ran directly to the bird vs. one that swam all the way their and had a little hunt and i mean little. Just cause the dog swims all the way their doesnt mean it showed a better mark. It shows some good training and the dog that cheated will b hard to fix. There are 4 series and people always speculate who is winning or all the placements. But sit n the judges chair its a whole different view from their....

Congrats Shane on your 4th n your first derby.
Congrats to danny also for gettin both lacey and cisco on the derby list.

Chad,
I'd love to go training with you.
Yes, please set up your down the shore cheater set-up. And yes, I will correct my dog for cheating as will many folks on this forum.
But this is training AND like I explained before "If" I get to a trial and there is a cheat AND it is set up to make my poor cheaty dog get out early AND it makes him either forget his mark ,go back to an old fall,etc.. then I have to handle and I'm out.
BUT if the cheat ONLY makes him get out early and run around and get his bird without a hunt (just get there quicker) I'd be pissed that my training this week didn't make him more honest but he still won the trial because that darn dog knew where all the birds were AND didn't hunt.
Ok.?
Training vs. trialing. BIG difference.
Sue

Ok well then let me ask ya'll this? If it doesn't matter if the dog stays in the water or at least makes a good effort to stay in, what is the purpose of this mark? Why wouldn't the judges shorten it up? If the dogs not supposed to stay in the water it would save everybody alot of time to have a shorter mark.
