    Sorry if I singled you out by quoting part of your post. Several folks said that Bill Hillmann says to use orange bumpers and that is frankly irresponsibly incomplete. He does advocate them for...

    It may sound discouraging but you received some good advice. Derbies are fun but not so much if you put your training back. A dog with a predisposition to cheat and one that has poor line manners...

    A dog with a moderate fault can and will win--even an AA stake. I will say that a fault that requires elimination will not win. Beyond that you have to see it.

    Generally putting the blind near but not right at anything that looks like a good end point of a blind is a good idea in training, I think. But balance, to Breck's point, is important.

    In our trials, getting the dog to the general area downwind is a great way to run a blind but if you let the dog do the rest from there you will be going home at the end of the series. You have to...

    Moderate. Which means it could also be Minor or Serious, depending on the nature.

    An excellent point. The program is the same through transition whether your goal is meat dog, MH or NFC. That is why many folks suck it up that first season and just work on watching their dog sit...

    That is really not necessary. Many people hunt their HT and FT dogs. They pretty quickly learn the difference and lots of folks handle their dogs to the last known address and give it a hunt it up...

    Many folks take a small micro step in the wrong direction as part of a wind up for a cast. So a micro step or movement to the left in preparation for a right cast. This is not good. A micro step...

    If you have a hard charging dog or a puppy just learning and trying to do its best, they will likely go on the first movement they see. This is why you don't blow the whistle and then walk to...

    You mean the Colony Inn in Camden? Not the worst place in the world--unlikely to have a gunfight in the parking lot like you are in several places in Cheraw--extremely variable these days. If you...

    One thing to consider if the dog is often taking the wrong cast, is are you giving it wrong. Have someone experienced watch you or video tape yourself for any extraneous movement. Are you doing a...

    Retrieving a tennis ball is fine. Chewing a tennis ball is bad for all kinds of reasons--tooth wear is the least that would concern me.
