    Junior high, gym class. I remember our gym teacher crying while he told us. Really the first time I became aware that there was a world going on around me that I wasn't the center of.

    I particularly enjoyed the gender neutral parents. I watch this stuff and wonder just what the heck these folks parents did to them to make them so wacky.

    The thing I most appreciated about these DVDs is that Dennis uses a dog or dogs that have clearly not been run to these set ups 20 times before they filmed it. You can see the mistakes and...

    Try cedar chips. We use them all the time. I put enough in their dog houses for them to burrow down into and certainly don't have a problem with them getting to cold. Of course their kennels are...

    Hard to beat the Pac NW, Seattle, Portland areas. You have to get past the grey days and a little rain in the winter but you can effectively train all year and the outdoor activities are unlimited....

    Co Ownership is as good, or bad as the folks involved. The what ifs should absolutely be addressed up front and duties and responsibilities clearly defined. After that it's a crap shoot :D

    I like this because it's at the heart of the correct and least stressful thing to do. "Thanks, I appreciate that, have a great day"

    Can you go anywhere you want or do you have parameters? Some awful good training and hunting areas in the Pac NW.

    I have had lots of fun with blockages over the years and not surprisingly it's always the first thing that comes to mind. If the dog is pooping, and that is the big if, then things that are easy on...

    If FF was done solely for the purpose of "teaching" the dog to retrieve you might have a point but it's not.

    He certainly misses no ground but it doesn't seem like he's acting at all birdy. More like he has been taught to cover so much ground in such small increments that he puts up anything in that space....

    It will probably go away as the dog gets older. Like little kids, the worlds kind of a scary place when it gets dark. They soon figure it out.

    Had a pleasant conversation with Mr McCracken today. He's got me on the right track I believe. Always fun talking dogs.

    Here is the deal. Beauty, style, is in the eye of the beholder or the judges in this case. Personally I don't like watching slow dogs but I have watched many that are extremely functional, just no...

    Well Eric I was certainly not under the illusion that I was "Special". Obviously a form letter but it does show that the AKC felt at least a little heat from the folks. That letter is as close as...

    In response to an e-mail sent by me. Apparently they were not talking to us. LOL

    Dear Bruce,

    On Saturday morning, AKC agreed to appear on Fox & Friends to discuss our thoughts on the use of...

    Kind of sounds easy but maybe not. There is something going on with the original owner that has led to him wanting to give up his dog after a year and a half. Usually folks that are not suited to a...

    I like this answer. I am going to show the dog the marks, subtley, if the judge thinks it's excessive they can tell me.
