    No code:D. But with handlers running 20+ dogs in Master & often minor stakes also, this type of honor takes too long. Instead or running with 2 dogs between, probably need 3. Poor junior/senior...

    Sometimes I think we have it backwards. Higher level dogs should be able to overcome the rookie mistakes most often made by new judges. But instead we place these new judges with the dogs most...
