Yes, plenty of FC's have also. What Ann has said is similar to what others (me included) have done. I also have a pool and would do Ann's lake drill's in the pool with the dog, but I would not let...
A lot of this has to do with water depths in the construction. Shelves can be your worst enemy for weeds/algae, but dog people love them for obvious reasons.
A small version of this may work if they had the bandwidth at the trial. Bandwidth has been an issue at several of the recent Nationals.

You can contact EE and have them send less catalogs, they just have a pre-determined formula that they automatically send out but it can be modified with a phone call or email.
Those really don't work that well for retriever training, its more for flushing. You can use it, but you'd be better off probably buying a different product. ...
I've gotten replacements at RC (airplane & car) shops, best to take it into the shop to make sure its the correct size.
One Hundred Dollars.
It's not that weird. It's a pop up blind and used often in training and occasionally in a trial. When used in a trial, it's typically on a water blind and there is not a good place to put the bird...
I believe the original purpose of the Amateur stake was so that Amateur's could run their dogs on Sunday following the Open All-Age stake that was primarily run by professionals. I know there is...
Shayne probably qualifies also. Let's start a campaign.
If its this close, I'd try to assign relative weight's to each mark and blind. If it's an incredibly difficult water blind then it may get a high weighting similar to the toughest mark. If its a...
If he said it, you have to own it. Take it a step further and if they miss the hazard (high and dry, whatever), tell them to pick up their dog. Leave no ambiguity. As Ed said, and I have said...
Just run your dog. The guy with one dog in the fight has a funny way of winning more than you would think.
I hear when he wakes up in the morning, he puts his pants on one leg at a time.
Poole Knob in Smyrna, TN is between those two areas.
Had an 8 year old break on a cold honor after running very good land and water blind in an Open. She never put her butt on the ground. Awesome!
Absolutely. I don't want to work a trial that goes on an extra day. As it is meeting judges on Thursday adds to the days away from work.
I think the suggestion to consider (bearing in mind...
Friday Amateur starts are bad for the sport.
Probably the best thing I have heard is to just finish on Monday. Probably worth considering for the entire Field Trial.....start on Saturday and...
At least one of the dogs was a HT dog, Jack. He was a Master National Hall of Fame dog if I remember right. Also the dogs and handlers were picked that were calm and able to handle what they were...
They did that several years ago in England. USA team was led by Mike Lardy. Field Trial was "European Rules". Team USA finished 4th.
It would make a good video.
I live in Mableton. It's a suburb. It's not rural at all. Traffic is the same as the rest of Atlanta. If you want rural, you need to go further out from the perimeter (I-285).
At least you didn't make the handler stand in a hole to run it!
