    Thanks Teri. I thought that I recalled hearing that he was a Belvedere dog, but apparently he is not in the k9data database. At least I do not find a Belvedere male with the call name Rookie or one...

    I agree. I am not familiar with some of the others mentioned, but I cannot imagine any are of better quality. Note inexpensive and not quick, but exceptional quality.

    Very good judging question Keith.

    I agree with Bruce and others. Nice lady and very nice dog, but IMO not a correct call by the judges. Given the handler had to go out in the field to pick up...
