    Is there anything that works on black flies (they look like little black gnats?) We were out training on a pond last weekend and got eaten up, people AND dogs. I'm still scratching!

    That's awesome, you are so lucky. The town where I live is enforcing the leash laws with asperity, absolutely no training in the city limits or it's a $70 per dog citation. They even warned us on...

    Actually, walkups are more likely to result in a break or a creep than a dog not seeing it, in my experience, they can be very exciting. The idea is, you are taken by surprise by a bird. The bird is...
