    I am firmly convinced based on extensive research and my own experience that a raw diet Is the healthiest way to feed a dog. Having said that, it's kind of a PITA. At best, it's not nearly as...

    Don't sweat it. If the dog did it with birds, I'd probably address it indirectly. Here - nick or sit - nick.

    Retriever Results is showing Bullet with 60 points which looks like it would still be enough for the most points Open ever.

    Go watch some trials. It's going to be hard to get a feel for setups without seeing them in the flesh. Get Mike Lardy's article compilations and his videos (including the marking series). Try to...

    Qual blinds tend to be straight forward and somewhat shorter, but will occasionally be tight to flyer crates and the like. Open blinds are sort of no holds barred - poison birds, tight double...

    Good luck! You'll need it. The odds of producing a FC and/or AFC with a show based pedigree are remote at best. There's a first time for everything, though.

    I don't see how interrupted marks could be considered a training test or elimination test more than any other test. Yes, it requires a certain amount of pliability, trainability and memory to do the...

    Tri-Tronics and Dogtra both make great, reliable collars. That doesn't mean they don't make the occasional dud, but it's rare. I really like the ability of the Tri-Tronics to hit a higher level...

    The only thing that is truly waterproof is a rubber boot. The best water resistant boots/shoes I've found for comfort are Keen shoes.

    I'm interested in the reasoning of those who feed their dog before training, testing, trialing or hunting when the scientific evidence is clearly in favor of feeding after the exercise. I'd have to...

    I'd find a program and follow it. You can't paint the Mona Lisa until you learn how to color by numbers. I think you'd be better off mowing the whole field than teaching a dog to run mown paths.

    I seriously doubt his size had anything to do with him not competing in field trials. I'm guessing his owners were more interested in hunt tests.

    What about lowly amateurs like me, Tim? Derby first? I've got one dog in the derby and one in the Open.
