    That's not a stupid question at all. I'm guessing that the OP is a new trainer, seeking knowledge. This is a great forum for that.

    I regularly handle my dogs to 200 yds or more while hunting for...

    For starters, there is nothing wrong with giving marks that seem to be no challenge.

    When a dog starts popping on fairly short marks (50-150 yds) I wonder what the handler has been doing that might cause this.
    Have you been handling the dog on marks, when it gets in trouble?

    I have seen dogs that do not train or test with style, hunt like a whole different animal. They know the difference.
    But I have no desire to train a dog that doesn't look like it wants to be there....

    You don't want a dog finding the bird easily. You are looking for a discipled hunt in the area of fall. I would not want white bumpers or ribbon on birds in this case.

    Yes it does make sense . Thanks for that detailed explanation. I know of a few dogs in our training group that will benefit from this.
    It seems to be the firecrackers that need this more than any.

    Dr. Ed,
    Are you meaning that the gunner moves around the field for each mark, or is he stationary and varying the throw between angle back, flat and angle in?
    What is the gunners response when the...

    I can't imagine a judge in any retriever field trial, making note of a dog that has delivered to hand, but has an unconventional grip on a bird.
    It doesn't matter.

    When I hear a pup whining at night to go out, I give my wife a nudge. When she wakes up I start snoring. This is a good puppy house breaking technique.

    I think any judge that is aware that someone with limitations, will be competing, would do their best to take that into consideration during setup. I don't think rules are needed.

    I agree with what you say, mostly.
    If we really want to make the game more appealling, to the amateurs, why not level the playing field, by adjusting the point structure.
    It seems ridiculous to me...

    It sounds
    like the CKC is subjecting the FULL WEIGHT of their influence on the AKC and Canadian government agencies. Never have I seen a better example of barking up the wrong tree.

    I paid pretty close attention to Bill & Ammo when they were online up north this year. Bill is everything an amateur needs to be on the mat. A deadly team for sure.
