    I disagree. It's about context. For instance, in the field or at a trial, I use "Stay" in honoring or "no bird" situations in the field so the dog knows there's no way he is going to be released...

    Pro Heart 6 injection every six months and be done with it. They can't puke it up, choke on it, eat part of it then spit the rest out in the yard or shake it off and, at least so far, it hasn't had...

    Why Sound Obedience Matters

    I got home from training today and was unloading the truck. My 10 month-old pup had a bumper and was in the front yard sniffing around while we were just heading inside. My pup suddenly bolted for...

    I took that and while it helped with my restless legs, it made my hamstrings feel like they were about to cramp all the time. That made carrying equipment and setting stuff up in the field a real...

    Assuming it is a flat field and no factors, you give the right hand back and see what you get. If there is a slope or strong cross wind, those can severely affect the outcome of casts especially in...

    Given how little retriever clubs usually make on events, I understand the whole replicating a hunt but what I mostly see is $45 in just flyers per dog for that stake. It would be interesting to see...
