    This has been a horrible week for losses. I wish everyone on RTF who only knew John as a sparring partner could have met him and trained with him. He was the antithesis of who he was here. Oh, how...

    Yes, it happened in Spanish Fork. Just days before, this family was at my son's house. I may have already written this, but when they broke the news to the Dad (my son's friend) he had to be...

    I would take Breck's advice on finding a group. Not always easy to do, but worth it. Not sure what your plans are for your dog, but training alone doesn't give the dog the same "Wow" factor as...

    Thank you for all the prayers. I just can't imagine what they are feeling. I did look at a newspaper article and I didn't have the facts straight. The 16 year old girl made a left hand turn and...

    Prayers Please

    Hello-

    I don't normally post these types of threads and in light of the monumental losses on RTF of late, I hesitated now. I spoke with my son yesterday and thought I'd woken him up or that he...

    Andy-

    I'm so sorry. You wrote such a wonderful tribute. The first dog that takes you there has your heart and Briezy is your heart dog. I always loved watching her run. You gave her the life...

    John wasn't what many perceived to be on this forum. If you trained or ran with him with him in person he was generous and giving. I remember running Kate in Master after training with John for a...

    Ditto! Vicky, Will never forget what you & Will did for Kate and I years ago. You deserve a Happy Birthday and many more to come!

    That really says a lot that Paul (& you) saw them as FT contenders. Molson was a natural. I do understand that Shawn was "different", but all Molson cared about and what I respected about Shawn was...

    Thanks! & thanks for all who replied.

    One question since it's been forever since I've had a pup and this is the first one where I would like to have a plan and stick with it. He has not had a lot...

    Thanks for the replies. Not much time to be on the Internet with a new guy around. He is 5 months old and I am his 3rd home. Long story, but he is a keeper and Finn adores him. Funny because his...

    I remember that dog and some of the old die hards who weren't thrilled to see her able run, but they were a hell of a team. Just like Shawn & Molson. He was the Lab who did blinds without hand...

    This is the smartest and most tractable pup I've ever had. He meets your list with the only challenge maybe being the distraction of other dogs, but even then he is tuned in and comes when called. ...

  17. What do pros love to have a pup doing when getting one in for basics?

    This could apply to ams too, but what would a pro ideally like to see in a pup when he takes one in for basics, i.e. force fetch, collar conditioning, etc. What are some pet peeves that they feel...

    You should be proud!! The only advice I'll give is not to look at it from a HT perspective. Every series you get called back at a FT is a big deal. To run your first Derby and go into the 4th is a...

    Dogs are markers. How much exercise is he getting free reign where he can burn energy and mark his territory? Too many people expect a dog to adjust to their schedule without putting the time in. ...

    Thanks Ed. I knew they weren't required to ask the dog to re-heel, but I didn't know that asking them to do didn't elevate it to a controlled break.

    A controlled break is when a dog has either crept out to a point where the judges ask you to re-heel the dog OR when a dog is actually breaking to retrieve, but is brought back under control by the...

    Why? In both the Derby & Q a controlled break is allowed. Handler error, but it has to be called as a controlled break. Still, what a shame that a dog who clearly was the superior marker that day...
