Beautiful pup! Enjoy her fully.
Thanks for your post and nearly on target regarding my stance on the matter at hand. My imposed standard of delivery on my dog, my assumed risk should the dog not comply, my money...
Sue and Dave,
I hope to clarify that in no way did I intend to reflect negatively on the overall HT you generously hosted and specifically did not mention the venue for that very reason. You are...
I would bet these dogs had been FF and CC just like my own and despite that level of training, still got distracted in a rare moment of rare circumstances. You are correct in that sometimes...
NOT THE CASE, as stated before, the handler left the area with her dog and having gone back up to where the vehicles were parked, then returned back to the gallery with her dog and having walked...
As was stated immediately upon my approach to the judges, I was not looking for a "do over" and was not looking for an appeal, nor for "remedy" of any sought. I remained very respectful in my...
The funny thing about many of the comments here are that rather than doing the seemingly standard "Junior level snatch and grab", I demand my dog come to a seated position on my left and deliver to...
Not looking for ye sympathy, nor that of anyone else. NOTE: my post clearly states I was able to "recall my dog" back to the line, that would in fact clearly indicate that I am in fact...
Not the case, the dog and handler had left the line, went back to the parking area, and returned to the gallery with her dog. So judges will admonish a woman for wearing a brightly colored shirt as...
I think that you and I are more in agreement than disagreement. Clearly, I stated that the Marshalls at the test should have addressed the problem by preventing it from happening. All...
I attended an AKC Hunt Test this past weekend and had been called back to run my dog in the water series during the junior stakes. Upon return of my dog with the bird from the first mark thrown to...
My "fat British plodder" BLM on the left, hard driving, bird hunting machine. Plodder??? Hardly!
I have always felt there should be an open season on "lively hoods".:p
I own a copy of Carol Cassity's book and it is a superb reference on drills. Highly recommended.
You send me a private message offering to sell ME the Uplander (no doubt because you read my classified ad that I was looking for one). Rather than giving me a reasonable amount of time...
I own a Beretta Extrema II and have owned it for approximately 7 years and love it. I do not have the "Kick Off" recoil reduction system, but it's a gas operated shotgun so the perceived recoil is...
NICE WORK! CONGRATULATIONS.
It soumds as though you are following Evan Graham's program pretty much to the letter. I assume you have done away with "chew" toys and things that go squeek LOL! You do not indicate how old your...
WTB - Zinger Uplander G4 Bird Launcher with Dogtra Remote Release electronics. Send PM with full description, price, and contact information.
Nice work and an accomplishment to be proud of for trainer / handler, and dog.
That handler and dog got "ducked"!:D
Definitely take it off, air flow is critical, also consider use of a crate fan to keep your dog in comfort and safe.
X2 on these and any of Evan Graham's and Mike Lardy's books as well.
