    I ran a really tough poison bird that followed a marked triple. The dog did great on the blind, and after delivering, locked in on the "key" bird of the triple all on his own.

    I'm pretty sure that you could name a dog "sit", and it would still go on a mark when sent on it's name, and sit when commanded to sit.

    It could've been an accidental breeding.

    I take more issue with breeding for color, breeding JH or untitled Parents, or not doing the health clearances.

    I think that a lot of folks want a D-ring on the strap, so they can use it with a stake-out.

    The reason that TT removed it from the G3 collars, was because they "blamed" it on the broken loops...

    A low level 2 nick should be so light that you can barely even feel it.
    It should be even less significant than a high level 1 nick.

    If the dog can't even feel a level 1...

    The only real difference, (by real, I mean something that actually makes a difference) is that the SBE II has a higher rib, and can't float a "ghost" shell on the carrier, without modification.

    I'll never own an e-collar, with a "screen".
    LCD or otherwise.

    I wish that my stupid cell phone didn't have one either.
    Two things that don't ever need screens, are phones and e-collars.

    It's believed to be an Autosomal Recessive trait (in dogs).
