    The master national is growing FAST. A way to "catch up" with the demand of the MN could be to change the way dogs qualify. It seems to me that the majority owners of the 600+ dogs entered in last...

    Instead of 15-20 feet, try 5-10 feet. Slowly extend distance when ready. And like mentioned above, stick with one command for at least 2-3 days, maybe longer if needed.

    It's a double edge sword, a sword that I would not like to play with. I think the cons heavily outweigh the pros. I'm not sure the risks would be that great if done once (even though I wouldnt), but...

    I'd take it as a "win" and note it for future cold blinds. As long as you stay ahead of her, you should be fine. Anticipate her not sitting on the whistle, and be ready to enforce to your standard....

    Funny, I see plenty of FC dogs FAIL a master test. That means it's not technical at all. And it's not impossible to get into a master stake. It's a regional issue, and even then it's not...

    Jim's post #5 nailed it. And if you just completed FF, your dog isn't ready to run blinds. FF is the beginning of the foundation to run blinds, but you need to add a few layers first. I just recently...
