    At stud: Webb's Dakota Bird Dog

    Haven't heard anyone saying to breed carriers for field trials. What I'm hearing is that we can't just "cold turkey" remove every carrier from our breeding stock without doing a huge disservice to...

    I said, "many of today's FT breedings" I didn't say all. All of my Labs have come from well known FT dogs. I just lost the best HUNTING dog I've ever owned and trained. She was almost 15 years old,...

    I have been dabbling in this "game" now for a couple of years and can relate to the disappointment this game lends itself to. I think I have figured out a way to corral some of these crazy emotions...

    A lot of times it is written in the premium. AKC doesn't set stipulations on the gallery, that I am aware of. To my point, common sense would say it is not good practice to wear white from behind the...
