    Nobody is near you this time of year. When the weather cools down and they return from their summer trips, you will be very close to Chris Ledford in Buckhead and Al Arthur in Lincolnton off the top...

    Did he mean 'Queer or Questioning'? Why did he leave out the other? If he was going for the full monty, he should have used LBGTTTQQAII or at least gone with LBGTQ+. Homophobe.

    You could, but it isn't really fair and frankly, not likely to work. This is powerful self reinforcing behavior and a correction hours later is not going to do much next time he is faced with the...

    I did this with my veteran creeper but we started with smaller victories and ramped it up. At first, he got to go when the butt hit the ground. Easily 20 minutes or so the first time, then as that...

    Legal, illegal, good or bad, I will continue to gripe about tests. I feel it is my duty and the judges would feel bad if someone didn't care enough to gripe about their tests ;)

    I read an article a year or so ago that was very interesting about why folks don't seem to remember the MOVE bombing. I remember it vividly so I was surprised to learn that it is so obscure to so...

    Around here, many judges to that in the SH for the very reasons you state. The walkup just isn't all that great as part of a good marking SH test, so they separate them.

    Should be possible for samsung. Definitely possible for Apple. I have several that I ripped and watch on my ipad when I get the notion.

    I see it as a stand alone (not part of a double) fairly often in SH tests. Some times the judges really want to test the memory bird on the double a little more than the walk up is able to in many...

    EE would be a mistake. RR is a much better place to start. If you go to newsletters and 'road to master national', there are a number or reports to get you started. For example, 2014 qualifiers...

    I think whether it is worth it is dependent on your reason for thinking about doing it. If it is for HTs or FTs, it is an advantage but even if you teach it, the dog will always likely be less...

    It will be fun. Your question was about training, of course, but when you get to the actual derby, remember that the dog seeing the money bird is basically your only job. Take your time and don't...

    Same here. As well as marks that ask them to get out of the water early or run close by water and not get in. It is not hard to come up with marks that will make good young dogs look bad. It is...

    If that were the only or even primary benefit of swim-by, I would imagine very few would find it worth the effort. Yet, many top trainers do, and many even re-visit it regularly with older dogs. ...

    Good point, Breck.

    Orijen is a good food. We have used it--as well as Farmina, Dr. Tims. Just didn't work as well for all our dogs. Annamaet seems to be the happy medium for all of them.
