    My Cody has this problem, but I am certain it has to do with is breathing. He will hold perfectly for the first two or three retrieves during a training session or test as long as they are not...

    That's good to hear. I was concerned that she might have a thyroid issue or something. I'm still a little concerned about how thin her coat is. Hopefully her undercoat thickens up as the weather...

    Golden Retriever with an odd coat

    We've got a 1 year-old pup with a very unique coat. I'm just curious if anyone as seen similar dogs (other than golden doodles or Chesapeakes :) ) . Her coat is extremely short, thin, and super...

    Definitely worth the risk. If you're looking for a top performing retriever I don't think its a big deal. It might be a different story if your looking to show off a beautiful house pet, and that's...

    I've seen dogs that are affected badly and others that didn't show to much dander as adults. All affected dogs are homozygous recessive for the trait. Heterozygotes (carriers) are not affected. ...

    I'm new to the game, but I've seen dogs make appearances in the gallery (usually small pups) during more tests than not. That being said, I think your point that it is silly to be concerned with...

    OK. How about front seat belts - built into the seats or attached to the frame (or door)?

    Are they for the fold down, non-opening center console, three-passenger front seat? Do you have the cover for the center console?

    Thank you! Actually, I have never done any reloading, but now I do indeed know a little about it. Thanks again. I'll give that a try.

    (NE) WTB old reloader for poppers

    I'm looking for an old reloader that only needs to extract and replace primers in 12ga hulls. Just want to reuse/make my poppers.

    Thanks for all the great input here! Certainly not washing out the dog yet. The more I get to know him and his pre-test tendencies, I'm confident we'll find some things that will work to get him...

    This is an excellent point. I try my best not to project any nervous energy at the line. But I'm a beginning handler and maybe my effort to be calm can even be off-putting to the dog if he senses...

    Thanks Ted. Those ID'd issues are the issues with this dog (I believe at this point anyway). Those are good ideas. I'm also going to see if more group work might help him out as well.

    I'll check that out. Also, good advice on avoiding the tests for awhile. I haven't run him for a month or so while I try to figure out how to best help/prepare him for test days.
  20. Exercises or drills to help an amped up dog on test day?

    Iíve got a 6 year-old retriever who began training for the hunt test game when he was 5. Prior to that, he was never expected to be steady to the shot or to live birds. He has made great progress...

    Thoughts on the "Wildrose Way?"

    I'm looking for opinions on "The Wildrose Way" for training retrievers. Of course, opinions informed by experience are best. :)
    Thanks!
