Congrats Marty. Great News.
Agree! Sometimes it is harder to transition the handler, than it is the dog.
Train the dog, and the tests will find you.
10th series is on today. Good luck to all 11 teams.
Exactly. Heck start with a 2 bumper wagon wheel, at 12 & 6 o'clock. Build it up to 8 eventually, then 2 tier 16.
In answer to the OPs 1st question, I explain it like this.
Say Dead- Tell them why...
Duckdawgs, I think it's worth a shot. The next logical progression would of course be, getting him to seat on a duck.
Congratulations to Alex Washburn & Legend. This was one of the most amazing Nationals to follow. I managed to follow it closely and it was very exciting. What a great job everyone involved must have...
I think I just got committed. I really hadn't made my mind up yet. My mind isn't in the game yet at all, but it might be good to get away from all of the horse**** for a bit.
Anyway Bryon's dog is...
You have done very well with him Bryon. A good looking dog too.
Amen to that.
If the dog is privately owned, (i.e. Not owned by a business)

Dave & Marty, my sympathy to both of you.
When you consider that the dog picked up a bird that it found, then realized it had the wrong one, and was smart enough to go finish the job it was sent for, why would you want to punish the dog or...
I would consider the found bird as a "point of unfairness" and rerun the dog.
I will read this later when I have time. I quit when it became us vs them. I've had both. The bird crazy dog that didn't get enough obedience when it was young, (NAFTCH Blue) and the retrieve crazy,...
A couple shots of Crown Royal usually does it for me.
Two thumbs up for Miss Becky!
She's an example to us all, of what good dog folks should try to be.
I understand the need for good judges and judging. I appreciate the value in learning to judge. I enjoy the feeling I get after I've done a good job. I learn something every time I judge. But I still...
Moscowitz, I don't know anything about Chessiemom, but it makes no difference in my books. Once a dog has drawn blood without a good reason, you have to think of others.
I think you show a lot of character for putting responsibility ahead of emotions. Dog owners need to put themselves in the shoes of non-dog owners.
There are those that will re run a cold blind but.....
Days or weeks later, not right away.
Soresto seems to be drawing high praise for keeping ticks off of the dogs.
I have used a couple brands that are less expensive, (Zodiac for one, and one that I bought at pet smart.)
To me they...
Success in FT's is a long term goal that is more about the trainer/handler, than it is about the dog. I don't need a ribbon or placement to feel good or bad, about my dog, (but it helps). I need...
