    Good to hear your experiences with white markings - especially Anney.

    And good advice Sue.

    And Barb, I keep forgetting to say how much I liked your GR News article about Tito and the Spaniel...

    Barb's comments and others really helped me realize what was really concerning me and ultimately how to rationalize those concerns.

    It's often said that show breeders breed to an extreme for...

    I had the exact same thought about the Goldens who are entirely white...

    Interesting, Chuck! Bet that would be an eye opener to the FB group.

    And I completely agree with Swampcollie's post and others. There's no "perfect" dog and I doubt 10 people could agree on what...
  5. Breeding Field Goldens vs The GRCA Standard

    This is inspired by a thread on a FB page frequented by show ring folks.

    The topic was white on the feet or head or chest. Apparently this trait happens in show lines as well as field lines - but...

    Some guns aren't easy/obvious for the dog to see. Imagine coming to the line 15 feet from the bank of a wide channel. There are two very obvious gun stations on land on your side of the bank. But...

    Hillside,

    So glad you have a great pup and you are excited to progress with her! I'm not an expert by any means, especially on force fetching or force training. But I do know using force fetch or...

    Keep in mind that you are asking your puppy for a chain of multiple behaviors. Right now even Mike Lardy wouldn't expect a 6 month old puppy to return with a bird, come into heel, then sit and then...

    I use them. They're harder for the dog to get a grip on, but they work. Not sure about flying very far...

    Good topic! Saw quite a bit of finger snapping, heeling and knee pushing to point to the first bird this weekend while sitting on the judge's cooler. It never occurred to me that it wasn't kosher to...

    Haven't read all of the responses, but I think if you want to see the judge's sheet, you should also have to watch a video of yourself running the dog and of all the birds going down on that test. I...

    I've had great results from Orijen. Look at the ingredient list and the protein/fat content of both and make your own decision. No doubt, Dr. Tim's is great, too.

    I've only marshaled about 8 tests, but each time I found the overly uptight people to be much more of a drain on the day than any of the dogs in the gallery.

    edit: this is not a slight to Irish...

    Hi Erin,

    Sounds like you have done more research than I have in the past few days and have a lot of experience exporting pups. And maybe I'm reading your response and the CDC info incorrectly, but...

    Are you sure this is new? When I imported a pup 6 months ago, the CDC had the same requirement, but also listed an exemption for pups too young to have the vaccine. You had to sign a form saying you...

    There has to be a way around this. If pushed, it seems like they should accept something along these lines: Sire and Dam have proof of vaccination, pups are born into a "Quarantine" situation at the...
