    Change foods until you find one that the dog doesn't get ear infections on.
    It doesn't need to be a "special" food. It just needs to be one that when you feed it, the dog stops getting ear...

    I doubt that I'll ever enter a FT.
    But I do know that what I was doing with my first Retriever, wouldn't qualify as "training" it. And that had nothing to do with the program I was trying to follow....

    By the time a Trainer is actually training the dogs he or she has in "training", I think that they are well into "mixing" programs. Almost always.

    I don't believe that a servo is a drop-in fit for the older solenoid wingers.
    I think switching, requires replacing the entire release mechanism.

    You can use any surgical tubing from 7/16" to 1/2" O.D. on a Zinger Winger. That's what will fit through the pulleys.

    If your dog is chipped with a Home Again chip, I would register the dog in Home Again's chip registry.
    Whomever scans the chip, is most likely to check the chip manufacturer's registry first.

    Carpal Pad Contacts the Ground

    I had read before that the Carpal Pad actually does contact the ground when a dog is running.
    A quick google image search found this photograph.

    I was being especially Phase II last night. I should have just kept my mouth shut.

    That's a really good way to put it.

    It's not a problem, until it's a problem. And then, if it's still a problem, I really do need to fix the problem.

    Lardy does mini-T?

    Do people really "run out of dog"?

    Because I've never witnessed any such thing. Even with first timers.
    They don't "ruin" the dog. They just don't train the dog.

    At all.

    Popping is bad.
    Of course he would go to great lengths to prevent it.

    If you are "letting" a dog pop on the TT, you are training the dog to do something "bad".
