    Not a whole lot of working men with AM FT dogs Dave. A few, for sure but only a few and those have a flexible schedule (I'll bet). No way to get that much training into a dog if you work 9-7 like a...

    No one said anyone was out to screw anyone. I simply said the average Joe (that guy the sport was created for) may get left out of a Friday start.

    If you understand marker words then you'll...

    I've had to take the high road on this myself. I have some local events I would like to set a table at, but the table without the dog is just a waste of an afternoon for me. Some of the twp parks...

    have a look at Hillman's video on the Y drill to see how he uses a crate (I use a place board) so that you can throw marks for the dog yourself. It will be useful until you get some sort of remote...

    Titles don't matter to puppy buying decisions? I think they do, quite a bit for some (if not most) people. You don't always get to see both parents perform.
