    I don't think there is a rule preventing it, but in twenty years and hundreds of trials I have never seen an honor that wasn't the handler standing quietly to one side of the test with his dog...

    As long as the dog can see all the birds and you stand so that you are not blocking I would think I wouldn't think it would be a problem, though I try to get mine to sit up and watch the birds. They...

    Bill don't forget Canada, just another title, kind of a big one too. She runs a lot of trials, at least one every two weeks for a whole year without a break, that's impressive. I don't think there is...

    I did that with my first dog, but only on force to pile where "back" was coupled with a whack on the but with my whip stick. This helped launch my low momentum dog on blinds. As for marks, most dogs,...

    I never-ever bet on football games, seems like there can be an upset anytime anyplace. That plus, if I bet on my own team and win, the money is less important than the win, if I lose it just piles...

    I agree, but the fact is there are very few dogs that could hold up to that many trials and the training that goes with it. Most dogs would either sour or blow up, Ammo is just a ho-hum steady Eddie...

    As a Golden owner I never paid much attention to the color distinction you guys seem to harp on. Sometimes I get the feeling a Yellow or Chocolate Lab owner may as well have a Golden or Chessie as...

    Is it typical for the SEC West to dominate the East, or is this a new thing? I'm surprised Notre Dame fell out of the top five, they were within a play of beating the number one team. My read on it...

    That Notre Dame-FSU game was awesome. I was rooting for the Irish, but that PI call was the right call, the receiver didn't even try to pretend he was running a route. I wouldn't think ND will fall...

    When I was a kid, your family was either a Winchester or Remington family, pump or auto shotguns, you drove Ford or General Motors, rooted for UCLA or USC and were Republican or Democrat. The Finks...

    Yep, Remington's 870 trap with B grade wood. Mine had the lower comb, probably slightly higher than the field guns, but no where near the monte carlo stocks. If I held my cheek tight to the comb I...

    I still have my first "Judge", it was nasty. It could well be the reason my first dog soured on training after he got his MH, and I stepped up training when I got my first FT dog.

    I bought a used 870 Wingmaster TB grade (slightly nicer wood), from Pachmeyer in 1969. It was probably 2-3 years old at that time and came with two barrels, a 26" mod with vent rib and a 30" full,...

    No rule against running Quals forever other than the two wins and your done rule. Most people move their dog up to the AA at some point even if they don't have the two wins. On the other hand some...

    On wagon wheel drills and such I think it's less a problem. With fun bumpers dogs are frequently on the bumper while it's still in the air or bouncing along the ground, that leads to dangerous...
