    This is great advice. Lots of useful stuff in there.

    Don't fixate on the cold blinds, but go back to building confidence to increase momentum. And don't forget to do marks too, as they are fun...

    Here in the UK our KC/BVA accepts hip Xrays at 12 months onwards, so we usually get them done then. Our system is much the same as OFA. But I recently went to a seminar on PennHip and also the gene...

    Yes, I appreciate exactly what you are saying in the case of multiple marks, and delayed/memory marks, but the OP was talking about one single mark in this instance, so that is why I was questioning...

    Ted - you talk about 'lining' a dog for a mark? But surely you don't line a dog for a mark, he just marks it and runs to it on your release command? He will either break through obstacles in his...

    That's not true, I'm afraid. The e-collar is only banned in Wales! For the most of us, we choose not to use an e-collar to train with.
