    Morning feeding time is pretty consistent at around 6 AM, before I leave for work. Evening is 6 PM or whenever we're done training or doing any other activity for the night. Some evenings that...

    I've seen some very talented MH and HRCH dogs, but I would never rely on the title they hold as any kind of indicator of talent. First of all, they don't have to beat any other dogs to achieve those...

    I understand what he was saying, but have to disagree. When talking about this level of accomplishment, what does it matter who trained the dog? Some amateurs are retired, have great grounds and...

    Well said Darrin! Way too many folks living in a push button world, looking for the easy way out. It may take a bit longer to actually "train" the dog, but you end up with a much more reliable and...

    David, I couldn't agree more on supply/demand being the heart of the issue. Nobody would even be discussing entry details if AKC and MN modified the qualification requirements to alleviate pressure...

    I also understand the economics of a pro not getting their entire truck entered. Would be tough to justify the trip for just a portion of their dogs. Same applies to Amateurs though too and has an...

    I disagree David. Every "transaction" has the same opportunity to make it into a test, not every dog. 1 transaction has 20 dogs while other transactions have only 1, 2 or 3 dogs. If you have 60...

    One key point that hasn't been brought up is how many dogs did it take before the owner hit the "jackpot" with that one special dog. They may only have $50,000 in the titled dog, but if you add in...

    Good changes, but I heard there is going to be a scratch fee attached to that capability prior to close and a fee to get on the wait list. Is that true? I didn't think AKC rules allowed a fee to...
