    Not cold enough here for poopsicles, but all my dogs get Probios probiotic powder on their food daily.
    No poop eaters in this house, solid stools and very few upset stomachs.

    You (I) wouldn't correct for running at the gun. Let the dog work it out. A smart dog will figure out with experience that the birds are not at the gun, but in a particular...

    Could be, but more often than not a dog transitioning from hunt tests to field trials will be attracted by the standout gunner until they become accustom to them. So my guess is inexperience and lack...

    Recalling is more crushing to a dog's attitude than a collar correction and a handle.

    So, you need to do plenty of marking setups where the dog will be successful. No handling.

    How many times in training have you dropped a couple flyers in your decoy spread, then ran a blind through the decoys and old fall?

    I couldn't disagree more. Both Mike and Bill provide a ton of information on what to do if things don't go exactly per the DVD. But you have to be willing to dissect the information and listen to the...

    I don't see a gray area at all. Judge tells you we are going to throw 2 marks, you will then be given your number and must pick up a blind. If the blind is satisfactory, you will then pick up the two...

    No, you are not. You are specifying when the blind must be picked up. You may still pick up the marks in any order. This, in fact, makes the mark or marks a diversion. As stated before, in a field...

    It does not matter what you define it as, in a field trial the dog is judged on relative performance.
    So at a HT, if it's not defined as a mark, you can kick the dog off and cleanly handle to the...
