    Depends on the dog, level of training, grounds, etc, etc, etc. I think the only thing that can be discussed without knowing the situation, is the dog's intent. Did the dog leave its mark and do back...

    I agree, Derbies are too tough for a working/family person to get ready for. So I see Qual as the "beginner" field trial. Takes longer to get a dog ready if you can only train 2-3 times a week, so at...

    Stop correcting her with the stick, they just learn to "take the hit" and then get a retrieve. Find someone else to train with and do some cold honors, i.e. both dogs seeing a mark for the first...

    I agree with your premise, wild and domestic are very different and our selective breeding is not for the same traits that nature selects for. Pretty sure if dogs were wild there would no selecting...

    Ed, a lot of comes from her and her website http://www.caninesports.com, she apparently has quite the canine rehab program. Only know what I read on the web site, not an endorsement. I would suspect...

    This is the "best option" for saving the stub. Pulling a K9 tooth is a major extraction. The root is bigger than the crown (the part you see), but if you had it done now he would be very ready to go...

    Any bumper propelled by a 22 blank will not do well when wet inside the tube. I carry a small can of brake cleaner and spray out the tubes when training on the water, shake the excess out on a dead...

    To each his own, I doubt I will take them off again. For every story of a dog that has had problems in the field there more that have ended up with carpal and foot arthritis at an older age. Cannot...

    Especially up a steep bank. Watch how the dog spreads out its feet coming up a bank.

    Just leave them, except for rear legs. No sense taking them off now. "IF" they ever snag them then have them removed. I would not do it later, "just to do it". They are probably better overall with...

    From your description the Tritronics system you have is for the e-collar, and will not run the winger type of electronics. I believe that some of the collar brands are making that possible, but you...

    Pups should be CERFed at 7 weeks for "retinal dysplasia" not radial, before they go home. Some will be false negative and there will be a pup or two that has a retinal lesion NOT due to RD. Now in...
