    Actually I've got to agree that angle entries and cheaty marks are not the best way to set up young dog tests. Maybe in derby, but not in hunt test scenarios. Plenty of time for that at the higher...

    Dude, ever since we got the magic bottle we're gold!

    I think the qualifying deadline is going to be near the end of June, but plenty of time. Starting from scratch you need 5 passes to get your MHR and qualify for the Invitational. From Friday April...

    Wow, I go away for a few hours to earn a living and miss two pages! Nice to see.

    To address some of the issues:

    Honors aren't required, it depends on the judges.

    Perhaps a quick history lesson would help new people put NAHRA into perspective.

    NAHRA started in the early 80's as Chris outlined (and thanks for starting this thread Chris) They were originally...

    No rule you can only join one. I belong to 3. Join them both and if you are lucky you'll like them both and remain a long term member of both.

    Pretty sure the masses aren't adverse to trailing; they just haven't ever done it in a controlled setting before. Once you get the dog used to doing it on command (which isn't very hard) most people...

    I don't think doublehaul's technique is actually entering the workers before the test opens, but it does enter them as soon as the test opens, as directly after pushing the last button to open the...

    I'd actually like to see the requirements eased to get to the big dance, which is what the other two orgs do - once you get the highest level title you can enter the annual bacchanalia from that...

    We had an 11-year old somewhat rubenesque lab that we did both on for elbow and shoulder issues in his later years. The acupuncture never seemed to do anything and we stopped after about three...

    Depending on which flight you draw it's far less than every kid getting that trophy. And I think it is a showcase under my definition of the word, which is to exhibit or display something, not be a...

    Harry and Nora, Vik and I send our condolences. You gave her as great a life as she gave you. I'm glad I got to see her run and know her a bit, she was a very special dog.

    Sorry, I should have checked back, I thought someone else already put up the winner. Mark Brodie won over Marston Jones on time in the final series.

    My original question was about using primary selection initially, not on a re-run. The consensus answer seems to be that I'm free to do so, at my own risk.

    In the example I gave of my recent...
  18. Primary selection in field trials – is it kosher???

    I have a very limited background in field trials – a few Q’s with one JAM to show for it – so I really don’t know much about them, but they are a lot of fun and we’re trying to get better. So, I’m...

    It's marks and blinds so if your dog can handle a bit come on down and enter. I'm probably going to enter my 12 month old just for the oysters and if we hack up the opening blind it'll just give me...

    Bad breath, always find out why!

    So my 8 mo old puppy suddenly discovered the joys of cat litter boxes (i know, but please don't judge me):D. Breath was unbelievably bad, as you would expect, so we took steps to cut off his supply...
