    I own an 870 express that is nearly 20 yrs old, an 870 express that is 5 yrs old, and a 1998 wingmaster. I absolutely love the older guns. They made me a committed Rem fan. But the new express 870...

    When it comes to ugly dogs, no one can hang with my curly haired mutant golden retriever, Penny. I wouldn't trade her for the world :)

    I've heard that as well. I tried it (more than once) with this gun, and it still doesn't work. I'll be interested to know if it works for you friend. I may give a gunsmith a try like Beardog did. ...

    This was my experience as well. The first shotgun I ever bought was a black synthetic 870 express. I bought it back in the early 90's. I estimate that I've put over 8,000 rounds through it and it...

    That's good to hear. I was concerned that she might have a thyroid issue or something. I'm still a little concerned about how thin her coat is. Hopefully her undercoat thickens up as the weather...

    Golden Retriever with an odd coat

    We've got a 1 year-old pup with a very unique coat. I'm just curious if anyone as seen similar dogs (other than golden doodles or Chesapeakes :) ) . Her coat is extremely short, thin, and super...

    Definitely worth the risk. If you're looking for a top performing retriever I don't think its a big deal. It might be a different story if your looking to show off a beautiful house pet, and that's...

    I've seen dogs that are affected badly and others that didn't show to much dander as adults. All affected dogs are homozygous recessive for the trait. Heterozygotes (carriers) are not affected. ...

    This is an excellent point. I try my best not to project any nervous energy at the line. But I'm a beginning handler and maybe my effort to be calm can even be off-putting to the dog if he senses...

    Thanks Ted. Those ID'd issues are the issues with this dog (I believe at this point anyway). Those are good ideas. I'm also going to see if more group work might help him out as well.

    I'll check that out. Also, good advice on avoiding the tests for awhile. I haven't run him for a month or so while I try to figure out how to best help/prepare him for test days.
  25. Exercises or drills to help an amped up dog on test day?

    Iíve got a 6 year-old retriever who began training for the hunt test game when he was 5. Prior to that, he was never expected to be steady to the shot or to live birds. He has made great progress...
