    Dusty Water

    No water for training here in NV.

    Anyone know of a technical pond within a day's drive of Reno? Rocket Dog hasn't had Swim-by yet and I just feel like the clock is ticking with no rain in sight. ...

    You lost the dog in the divorce? What kind of jerk attorney would let that happen to you?

    Well, anyhow, I'm glad you ended up with a good one this time around. (Dog, I mean.)

    So there was once this field trial dog named Earl that liked to creep. For a while he would maybe jump out a few feet and so the owner called him "First and 10 Earl." It got worse and they started...

    Kennel Crate

    Before you ask... I did a search. I read several of the many threads and since I don't have enough life span left to read them all, I have a couple of questions.

    I guess I don't understand Senior Stakes

    The Senior stake allows controlled breaks. Seems a great way to teach a dog to be trial wise (or test-wise as the case may be) and that as soon as he's run w/out the e-collar, all bets were off and...

    A break. In Senior HT's you're allowed a "controlled break." I think it's a mistake to run the dog and reward him for it. Heck, dog's aren't stupid. (A) I don't have on an e-collar. (B) This...
