    I agree about the set opening time. That is about the only thing I think they could do. After that it is really just too few openings for too many entries.

    I don't think Dokkens add much value. They are just expensive. I just use 3" bumpers with a flag. I prefer the cheaper ones with no values from Dogs Afield. They are heavy like the Avery bumpers.
