    I don't think so. I know that there is a big difference between different Dogtra collars. The Max on a 300 is nothing close to max on a 1900 for instance.

    Yeah, I think she might be back from her trip-maybe not. It was a long trip. Ruckus looked great this weekend!

    AKC published the "Hunting Test Herald" when they first got into the Hunting Test Game. They explained the how, what's and why's. If you can get any copies, they would be very enlightening.

    Labs and Swampcollie, PLEASE read the rulebook. Not just parts of it. A slipline IS allowed in Junior per the RULEBOOK! NOWHERE does it state that in Junior, you need to hide the slipline. I...

    Read the entire rulebook. Not just the a few chosen sentences. It's amazing how the rules "change".

    I mostly agree with what you are saying here. In Junior, however, you are allowed to use flat collars and slip chords while the dog is running. If you are allowed to use them (and you are per AKC...

    You can use a choke chain to bring a dog to the line in minor HT and FT stakes. You cannot run a dog with it on in any AKC events. Of course, some judges "create" rules. Almost every HT I've been...

    You could care less, but what about your dog? Dogs treat flyers differently. What about getting dogs ready for hunting season? I train FOR hunting season, not during it.

    I would like to run it from the B to the L after mastering it the way you have shown. Much tougher re-entry. Good training.
