Hey guys. Quit acting like babies.
What percentage of today's trials utilize rookies to recruit and obtain judges?
Tonya has left the AKC. The new contact is:
Patricia Conaway <firstname.lastname@example.org>
AKC Performance Events
They now email the test. No more waiting for the mailman at your mailbox. I...
One additional thought:
When I interviewed for my first job out of school, a guy told me a simple line that I think over almost daily:
"Friends buy from friends".
My personal experience...
You asked for the contact information to get the test.
I provided that information.
My read on your comments is that you are making this more complex than it needs to be. If you want to get...
I believe this is a fairly common practice.
I think that many new judges request the test after being asked to judge a stake by someone who respects and appreciates their potential.
She was the person that you contacted to get the written AKC Field Trial Judge test a few years ago.
I'm not sure if she is the current contact or not.
my records show Tonya Romano at the AKC.
44 Magnum, I am here to tell you "Yes" those breeders absolutely do care what you write on the world wide web.
What you "say", among your own pals, or among your own private email groups -...
I agree with Kim.
One thing I have always enjoyed about Mike Lardy's written training material is his word count efficiency.
What mike communicates in a paragraph, many of us would state with pages of babble-on...

Here's the pond diagram below.
I had access, for the first time this weekend, to a custom-built swimby pond. ...
NFRA was headed up by Joseph McCann - Rockerin Retrievers.
It was a fun program with a great concept. But in the end, there were already many organized retriever events, with schedules that were...
Dex. I searched and found a post that says:
Is that the solution you mention?
Here's one way that I like to do it:
Click on the icon that looks like a tree inside a square with dots at each corner. (hover over it and it says "Insert image"
Click on the "from...
I am sure there are plenty of theories as to why Martin is facing what he's facing.
That's his business to sort out.
I will tell you all that Martin was a sponsor here and he has a pretty good...
I held off because I knew Martin was hustling to meet demand, thinking that I'd get my backup GunX sometime later. Lesson learned. Lay down the cash NOW. Take posession now.
Hey it could be...
GunX is a classic example of what my dad has told me all of my life.
If you find a really great product, buy more than you need - because if it's really great, they may run into issues and quit...
The admirers and friends of John Fallon are working on a little tribute to John Fallon in The Retriever News.
Edit: It will be hard not to put in that tribute that John Fallon never met...
Another suggestion I'd have is to mix them up. Use different brands, different styles, etc. Get your dog accustomed to retrieving all bumpers equally.
we probably all have attended a training...
This can be overcome by using the "boomerang throw" method.
The thrower holds the bumper by the end opposite the throw rope. The throw is overhand with a snap of the wrist, sending the top end of...
I've enjoyed reading about Briezy over the years.
You have my deepest condolences on your loss.
I'm so sorry.
Time will help smooth the sharp pain. The wonderful memories will...
Thanks Bubba. That was pretty interesting.
I agree with you completely. Making a dog a tripod is no big deal. That fourth leg is actually a spare!
I would love to know the story behind the...
I have a G3 Classic 70 and use it nearly daily. In my opinion, the Classic 70 is a great tool for simultaneously running 4 to 6 dogs.
I would agree that if one is only running 3 or less dogs...
You're right Marc. I probably did not word it very well. Everyone you mentioned, plus others all deserve the thanks.
