    Move back to Alabama!

    Serious advice. Running to the gun is simply a crutch. Dogs do this because it is easier. Running to the gun then turning left or right requires little effort. ...

    Lilly is a special animal that did an incredible job. To say she can mark is an understatement!! In no way was my commentary meant to detract from her career or performance. Simply wished to...

    As in many things, that doesn't tell the whole story. Lilly was way in front on both no birds & probably didn't see the retired pheasant flyer. Sat like a rock on the rerun & did a very nice job!...

    My personal opinion is that the rules do not require me to put my cheek on the stock & aim down the broomstick. As long as the rules state "shoulder the gun", that is what I will do. Failing...

    The idea of an owner/handler appeals to me because the assumption is there will be plenty of workers. When I look back at a recent test, it occurs to me that pro help was present at each and every...

    When I hunt, I hunt. The only rules are the club rules and any I impose on my dog. A triple handle on 3 down birds is acceptable & encouraged if it expedites getting the ducks in the pit so we...

    On the day of a test, a judges opinion is the one that matters. What is the penalty for "not aiming the gun"? Is it a 1/2 point deduction in trainability? In those cases only the true bubble...

    There is a lot of personal interpretation in judging. It adds variety to our game. Separating opinions from the written standard is why judges get paid the big bucks (sarcasm:D). The rules...

    I am often guilty of over analyzing a test but here are a few reasons. A dog thoroughly schooled in primary selection would be expected to pick up the short bird first. With the wind blowing...
