    Having been in this same position as an Alabama fan, a resounding yes IF he can do what needs to be done and get all the clutter out of his way. Alabama finally got desperate enough to go find the...

    Saban and Smart are a win away from playing for their 4th NC in 6 years, so I would say they pretty well have it figured out. Or if they don't, I'm happy with it anyway.

    All the rules favor the...

    I have one who goes in pretty hard, and I hold my breath a lot. Not to mention checking entry points pretty carefully when training.

    I haven't seen your dog, but moving up as a couple posters have said would be a good start, and you might (if you are not) use big, white bumpers for a while so the dog knows exactly where he is...

    This resource is better than nothing, but nothing replaces being able to see you working with your dog and see what you are actually doing. As Scott said, it usually doesn't take more than a couple...

    This is a great discussion. It really points out how badly new trainers need professional help or really experienced amateur help. The programs are great for getting you up on the vocabulary and in...

    As John said, you can pick up the birds in any order you choose on your initial run. See paragraph 9 of the standard procedure in the field trial rules. On a rerun, you have to pick them up in the...

    I would think it would only be smart handling to look at your dog and make sure he sees all the marks go down. If you don't know he is not looking where he needs to be looking you can't help him,...

    I asked you how you would justify Mizzou being one of the 4 (or 8) playoff teams this year apart from a theoretical win in the SEC Championship game. If you have a hard time with it, and I would...

    You better train for distractions, and it helps if you recognize when something weird is going on.

    Tends to happen to both teams after this game. I think I saw where Alabama has not scored a TD in the first quarter of the game after LSU since 2001 or 2002. Grown man football leaves both teams...

    Google can be your friend if you let it. BR is a tough place to play, but Alabama is 27-9-2 there all time. Those are not mutually exclusive no matter how much you would like it to be.
