    Couple of years ago a pair of judges - no names here - set up a test where a live flyer was shot over water as the dog was returning from a mark. Dog was in the water at 12 oclock, the gunners were...

    The suggestion that dbl headers not be able to start on the same day is a return to previous policy. Don't know why AKC changed it, but it makes sense to stage out the events to avoid the inevitable...

    How is the topper insulated? Good insulation will reduce radiant heat transfer. Ditto on making sure there is positive air movement through the boxes.

    The rules have been pointed out above and yes you can encourage Phydeaux "to hunt." By all means talk with your pup but, as in most things, the less said the better.

    That could be a good idea and would, with their technology, seem to be a fairly easy way to offer some good customer support. Why don't you suggest that to EE directly? I tried with the wait-list...

    Whatever Ainley does will be done right. Go with a set of helper springs, get the best tires available and enjoy.

    NO. Again, you're conflating a 0 score with no score. A "no score" means the pup was not tested on that issue and it does not factor into the overall score. As pointed out previously, marks are "no...

    The use of a "place" platform can be very effective in teaching pup that he/she must sit still while the birds are going down. The elevation - 3" is enough - creates a sharp definition of where pup...
