    This is what I would have said, but I thought the OP needed to hear it from someone more experienced than me. From what I have seen with other dogs and personally experienced with my own dog, I...

    Stupid question from a relative newbie - how does the length of potential blinds bear on the decision to FF the dog?

    I empathize. Mine's thought process (if you can call it that) at an event seems to be bang-duck-GO!!!!

    Congratulations. I hope when I get a Derby-worthy dog we can make it to the 3rd in the first one we run.

    Been in this same situation, and I empathize. I hear you, but I would reconsider "no marks" for a minute. If the dog is that bird crazy, the worst thing that can happen is being denied a mark. How...

    So you're telling me there's a chance for us?!?!?! Mine has quite the water entry and swims like something is after him. He loves the work, it's the rules that he doesn't really care for sometimes....

    I was test dog for a SR test that had a walk up flyer. Talk about puckering up with a high roller.

    Coordinate with the working dog when you are about to honor. You want to have the opportunity...

    Glad I am not the only one who feels this way. Finebaum does some really good interviews, but you have to wade through a lot of crap to get there. The only funny thing is listening to fans of every...

    You make a great point. LSU, Georgia, and Florida really have no reason to be bad teams. LSU in particular is really the only football program in a state that turns out a ton of D-1 talent every...

    Jacob and Dustin, serious question here. With Brady Hoke seemingly trying to coach his way out of Ann Arbor, are you guys worried about that whole deal rearing its ugly head again?

    Been there and done that for sure. As you might have guessed from my previous posts on this thread, our problems lie on the other end of the style spectrum.

    Roseberry, I would almost feel bad about taking your money, but I need to reroof my house. I'll take the over on 6 wins for Alabama and I will take your bet that both MS teams win.

    I agree with everything you say here.

    However, the point I was trying to make is if we are going to make allowance on one end of the spectrum then we have to make allowance on the other end too if...

    It occurs to me that too much style might be at least somewhat synonomous with out of control.

    As fishduck knows well, my dog has so much "style" that it is sometimes easily mistaken for lack of...

    Gooser, not trying to pick a fight with you by any means, but would you necessarily want to hunt with a dog like this? Were the blinds so slow that cripples would get away before the dog got there? ...

    I don't really care one way or the other, but I think the point some are missing is the complete and total lack of judgment that Winston apparently has. In a week where Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson...

    Amen, and amen. Here's to not being able to breathe during blinds because you have to be ready to blow the whistle at all times. What's the rule on the handler passing out due to acute oxygen...

    Wayne, I hear you that Rorem is talking about a test situation, and you certainly have a point about training alone and no birds, particularly in a wind like that.

    On the blinds, I was wondering...

    Takes a lot of guts to post these, and I appreciate it. I learn a lot from them.

    Spot on here. IMHO you have to start with several readings of the particular section of the articles to figure out what exactly you are trying to do, then go to the DVDs to see it illustrated.

    Pick one for sure. If you are going to look at other programs for hints on how to do something, I would at least stay with the order of the program you are using.

    IOW, you might decide to go...

    At some point, which I personally have not yet reached, it is just zeros and a way to keep score. How long do you think Coach Saban, who basically has total control of the program at Alabama, would...

    This. If you have one who likes to go on autopilot anyway, he doesn't need to know when he is getting toward the end of a blind. If you thus need to run blinds at 250-300 yards and you intend to...

    I'm not going to argue that you might sometimes be judged more on how the dogs look than on what they do, but for this particular issue it certainly would not seem to be within the rules.
