    Good question.

    I worked through the spin and barks while handling with the same dog. As a mere pup she would spin in anticpation of being fed her dinner. Might be something there in the lines? I...

    Middle of Alaska moose hunting. Had no idea until three-four days after 9/11. That is until an old trapper boated up and let me know that the U.S. was under attack.

    Under-cutting another person’s X spot, especially private, is cause for a good ol’ a-whooping. Once seen an “intruder” land face down in a cornfield only to watch him come to and have to stumble...

    This sounds like every dog I've seen on their first dove hunt. Especially if they have not been introduced to doves earlier. Doves are hard to scent even for a dog that marks well. Lots of dropping...

    I don't want a silver, chocolate or even a yellow lab. I like black but I really, really, really want a fluorescent Lab now. Can we work on this rather then silver?

    HRC Judge here. Use your hat, wear black gloves, all good. If the dog isn't trained the end result is the same.

    50 min, 30 min, 15 min fill ups all happened recently. I heard of some handlers hitting the submit button, as entries flooded in, only to be turned away. Just to many entries coming into the system...

    Avoidance.

    Panic biting: I've seen. Never want to deal with that again.

    Anxiety panic: Seems to be more of behavior based around the inability to socialize well.
