    I suggested that to Lee as well and he told me that he has tried to contact them twice with no response. That is why I suggested that he post this thread here. He has 2 young dogs, one of which is...

    I've honored with my dog on a "down" before. My thinking was that I was communicating to the dog that he wasn't going and also thinking that if the dog has to get up off the ground before he can...

    Good deal. I'm sure handling your dog will be a good learning experience and more than likely will only serve to increase the bond between the two of you. It can be a good thing for a new handler...

    For a first time handler a Senior test could certainly be a challenge even with a very nice dog IMO. Just curious is your dog pro trained (and handled) or just always trained and handled by your...

    That sounds awesome and makes a lot of sense based on what little I know of cancer (not that there hasn't been plenty of it in the lives of my loved ones). I wonder how it is working with the dogs...

    Run both AKC & HRC HT. If there is a NAHRA club nearby I would try that too (I've never tried it as I don't have one near me).

    Good luck with that! If folks over there are anything like Americans, someone will find something to complain about. Over here handlers commonly begin complaining before the first dog has run.

    I remember running a seasoned test many years ago out of a canoe. It was in extremely shallow water so that the weight of the dog and handler anchored it securely to the bottom. They had to do this...

    That is great news.
