    Find a stinky dead duck and make sure he will pick it up. Hold the collar. This is not the time to bet $70 on his steadiness. Don't release him until the judge calls your number or says "dog," then...

    I blow my whistle 3X to get my class to line up after recess or PE. A single "sit whistle" stops them in place.

    One would hope that's the case. Maybe clubs that have both HT and trials should recruit new blood from their HT people. FT clubs could go watch the young junior dogs and explain derbies to them. Just...

    That's great advice. I will add that if it is AKC, you may hold the dog by the collar before you send him. He may be steady as a rock in training, but the test cost $75. Have fun. You will meet a lot...

    OFA Hip Question

    Quick question regarding hips.
    If both parents are "good" can I expect my boy to at least be "good" ? I will have them done this summer, so I was just wondering.
