    I used Smartworks Puppy program - and I liked it. It seems similar to Jackie Merton's - they cover the same things. The Hillman program is a little different approach - also good stuff from what...

    There are 2 reasons clubs want to be able to have limits. First is the grounds and help. The second is also important and maybe something can be done to help with this area. If there are over 60...

    Why don't clubs just drop their MN affiliation? That would make their MH passes not count towards MN Qualification, and thus solve the problem of too many entries.

    If the clubs who put on the...

    The limits aren't because of entry express though - they're because clubs can't put on that big of a test for a number of reasons. What would happen now?

    The flaw in the system is that demand is outstripping supply. There are 2 approaches - first, try to figure out how to decide who gets in and who doesn't as fairly as possible. The other is to...

    1. Joe newbie is probably not trying to enter his dog in a MH test. Since he's just starting out, he is probably in JH or SH, and lucky for him, no problem getting entered for either of those.

    The MNH and the surplus of entries are a tremendous opportunity for it to grow. We have demand for more entries than we have slots. We need to turn that somehow into a way to create more slots,...
