    My first golden had CD TD MH titles according to AKC. Never ran a tracking test with her but hard to argue with AKC records.

    Double haul - in what universe will a 90 dog MH test finish in 2 days. Be grateful if we finish in 3. Takes the entire first day to run the first series, even with a 5 min/dog series. Especially at...

    Karen- I am judging for a club that is having 2 separate MH tests starting on the same day. Not split flights as I first thought but 2 actual 90 dog MH tests. I did not think it legal either, but...

    Tom - not sure if that is in the HT rules but it is stated in the FT rules. I'm certain there have been many tests where there was little to no land due to flooding, so it all evens out.

    It's not like the drought came as a surprise? Guess they won't be testing equally land and water again this year. Be good for those whose dogs aren't that watery.

    Marks and the Q stake

    Just for clarification. I judge HT and minor FT stakes only.
    For those that judge minor stakes. If you had a smaller stake, say 24-26 dogs, would you consider running land marks, then water marks,...
