    Trying to look at puppies and decide which one is going to be the FC AFC MH dog is like looking at babies in the hospital and trying to tell which one is going to grow up to be president.

    She loves marks from the popper, and just this evening (since I started this thread earlier), she has come in and out of the box 5 times unsuccessfully, not yet getting a retrieve. Four of the five...

    This is tricky. I've dealt with this. You can't sit her when she makes noise, and then cast her onto the mark, because you'll eventually increase her desire to pop. I'm still working through it,...

    In my line of work we say "if it ain't raining, we ain't training."

    The dog is an angel in training. She knows what a test is, and she won't do any of her bad habits in training. The second I get her to a test though, she starts to freak out on me. This is what's...

    Right now I'm in the middle of a major battle of the wills with my 4-year-old BLF. She is extremely talented, and has all of the skills to be able to pass a master test. She also posesses an...

    I'm not a biologist, but I think it's probably 100% of their genetics from their parents. Whatever they get from their grandparents had to have come through mom and dad first.

    I certainly didn't mean it with any sort of other intent. I can't see how it could be an insult either - if you've enjoyed success without a huge pedigree, you've done more with less, and proven...

    The least pedigree - the most wins

    This one is for all of you pedigree experts out there.

    Who is the dog (in recent history - say the last 15 years), who had the most success in the competitive dog world, and had the thinnest...

    We live in a town that has a rampant stray problem, and Parvo is a big issue too. It's a great excuse to get the pup out into the country!

    I have a dog that got test wise on me. Her problem was line manners - perfect angel in training, absolute freak at a test. We took a 2 year break from tests, and are working on MH again. I was at...

    Wonder Lead? I had to look it up.

    Oh wait. You mean a rope with a loop in the end so you can use it like a slip-lead.

    Dawn, most of our clubs around here are MN affiliated. I guess I can't blame people for wanting to run the tests. And I'm not "anti-pro" at all. The pro guys do a good thing for the sport. But...
