  2. If you think entry fees are expensive

    Anyone read that Calling Cascadia post? If I read it right the MH test, at least in Kamloops, is 250.00 Canadien per running dog. Is that correct?

    Some very good advice and a little honest evaluation on my part. I, like everyone else, love to teach and watch the work but the obedience is drudgery to me. Although I think I do a serviceable job...

    It is completely your call to use a collar or not but I am curious why you wouldn't. Not that a collar will give the dog a sudden influx of confidence running cold blinds, building the dog handler...

    He is definitely going to be a big dog. My rule of thumb for feeding is I want to see a waist and have them just a little tucked up.

    I will assume that the battery charge is significant? When I have had that problem it has always been the battery in the unit or the transmitter.

    The hardest thing, or one of them, to do when you are training alone is to hold your standards to the highest level possible. Obedience training is boring and we all want to chase the flyer, but you...

    Pelts in this context and on this forum generally means titles put on dogs or ribbons collected in various retriever venues. I think that about covers it.

    It boils down to this for me. Exactly what is the breeder protecting? I believe with some it is about control although with the number of dogs available that seems a little silly. With some it is...

    Once I have the breeding figured, and everything else being equal, I let the breeder make the pick. I can honestly say that approach has worked remarkably well.
