    I think limiting the entries per handler and redefining the owner/handler relationship serve two different purposes.

    There are a couple of problems these potential rules address:

    I understand the arguments against layout blinds, I just thought it amounted to legislating common sense. I know in the club I belong to, lots of people who have little involvement in field trials...

    Who decides if there is "sufficient interest"? This stuff can't make it to a vote, but the ridiculous layout blind vote made it down to the clubs?

    1. Lots of judging points doesn't make someone a good judge. One of the dumbest marks I've ever seen was thrown by a "legend" of the sport.

    I think 10 or 12 yards by 30 is ideal. Anything larger than that just adds time to the process.

    The third point isn't necessarily related to correction. It might just be whistle feedback. Just as an example, if a dog scallops, it's better to hit them with an immediate whistle than let them...

    I went and was supposed to be a handler, but my bitch went into came into heat the morning of the seminar. She has impeccable timing. I thought it was fantastic. It was a unique opportunity to see...

    What Lainee said. Judging is sort of like being in a bad relationship. You take the abuse and keep coming back. I was foolish enough to judge 2 weekends in a row recently. Here's a few gems just...

    I use a combination of Bill's methods and a more traditional Rex Carr method and probably butcher both. The first dog I trained using Bill's puppy video just placed in an open as a 3 year old. ...

    I teach a dog to return the length of the channel so the width is usually no problem. If the dog tries to cheat coming back, just stop the dog, walk around and take the dog back to where you want...

    It may seem like backing up, but I've had some success putting a prong collar tight around the dog's neck with a short tab (above the e-collar) like I would on a puppy. It's much easier to identify...

    I don't know about the momentum, but pursuit has a calcium/phosphorus ration that makes it suitable to feed to any age dog.

    I call a no bird if the line to the bird is through the gunners or behind the gun or if the flyer gets so far away that it changes the test. It's sort of like the Supreme Court's definition of...

    My interpretation is that in minor stakes talking to your dog before your number is called is a controlled break. All else being equal, I might use it to separate 2 dogs, but I would never drop a...

    What Ted said. At least the pro is being honest with you. And it's not uncommon for dogs to come from very nice breedings and be duds. I bred my QAA bitch to a FC-AFC stud, and she had 10 pups who...

    I'll have to disagree with you. My dog may pick up several blinds over 150-200 yards during the course of a season in some very tangled and difficult water. If I shot all my birds dead 20 yards...
