    They spent $51 billion on that Olympic Village. That is the budget for roughly 50 Texas Stadiums or 50 Belagios. And those came with clear water, door knobs, and light bulbs.

    Sure it will work. Just introduce it the same as the whistle. Start on leash and intermingle the tone with the known commands (Verbal or Whistle). Used consistently there'll be no distinction....

    Neither fits. Yes you want a positive attitude and a relaxed dog. They perform better and I feel better about it and we both have more fun. Simple as that, but your analogies are horrible. Dogs...

    Well, chock up one complaint about the Delta. I had a sport 2 dog. Loved the dial with big clicks. Knew exactly what I was giving without looking. Kept it at 0, then 3 clicks for a correction,...

    They didn't slaughter the civilians, combatants yes. They rounded up the population and put them in camps with travel papers, curfews, and limited supplies. Very harsh conditions. In my opinion,...

    These "new" wars we are fighting are very different than what the armed forces are built for. Henlee has a big part of the equation right. I read "Jungle of Snakes" a couple months ago. ...

    I'd recommend a two pronged approach. Do the best you can to improve the training to mimic hunting. Then put the gun down on the next several trips to make sure it follows through.

    I've done it. In my opinion, you are better served hunting one fresh dog at a time. One flusher can cover the ground within gun range. You aren't likely to get additional shooting on missed...

    I really like certain parts of James Spencer's "training retrievers for the marshes and meadows". It is old but really has some good parts. His chapter on FF is excellent.

    I don't get the whole lots of little shot theory. There was weird thread on Upland Journal a few years ago with one "gentleman" espousing the virtues of #9 at 1500 fps or something close to that. ...
