    My first thought was that the thread title pretty much described much of my training history. In the dark as clueless, rather than lightless.

    Answer - yes. The wife would never want a dog that doesn't live in the house. Pups learn, eventually, what behavior is acceptable in the house v outside.

    Our local fish market had some beautiful, fresh tuna in the other day. $34/lb !!! Yikes. Sure as heck the dogs did not get any - and neither did we.

    Someone mentioned Bill's white "shrimper's boots." He always wore those white boots and was called "Billy White Shoes." At one test, I'm thinking Old South as stuff like this always happened at their...

    Well, sounds like she knows the command, just not that it's the only acceptable behavior. I like the command "heel" as the command to start walking. It's also the cue to get into the proper position....

    Pulling is a natural action/reaction phenomenon. You pull, she pulls back. It's not unusual, but certainly undesirable, for mature dogs to pull on leash, but walk tractably at heel off-leash. There...

    I should have said that the diversion bird was not "judged as a mark." All other aspects, trainability, etc, are in play. A DB must be retrieved in HTs, optional and rarely retrieved in FT.

    I posed this question to an AKC rep several years ago, in the context of HTs. I asked if a "poison bird" thrown before running a blind was a mark, or a diversion. "Yes" was the reply.

    Actually it was as many as 28 in the room. Some managed to survive.
    Cautionary tale - AZ apparently has no license requirement or regulations for boarding kennels.

    Got out of there just in time. The weather the prior week - for the GRCA specialty - was perfect, clear and cool. Would not have wanted to pull 100 minivans out of the snow. :)
