    I hate to disagree with everyone, but please be careful if you hunt flooded timber. If it's cold, a vest is wonderful, but depending on the area you're hunting, a vest (or collar) can hang a dog up....

    Kevin, Dave, and John are giving you good advice: Focus on field trial set-ups and training style. A dog needs to start learning these concepts and test configurations early. My first dog was trained...

    A lot of genetics experts around here! LOL!! Subjectively, I agree that the 3 preceding generations tell you most of what you need to know, but also think it is very reassuring when you can look back...

    2 of my 3 dogs won't eat Pro Plan. This sucks because I would like to support Purina, as they do quite a bit for our sport and they are a Missouri-based company. I have not tried the grain free. What...

    I had the misfortune of running Derbies against WBF's Man On The Stand last year. I was quite impressed with his talent. Clayton Taylor did an excellent job with his training. He might be worth...

    Jax, I'm assuming these were non-surgical AI's since it was done twice. We did a successful breeding of my female to Grady at the MU vet school a few years ago which resulted in 8 healthy puppies....

    No problem at all in terms of launching your boat. A Suburban is basically a Silverado without a bed. In terms of dog training, an SUV is nice for controlling the climate for, and monitoring, your...

    I think CH III should have to go first in every stake every weekend, especially if I'm entered! Charlie and his dogs are awesome and I would love to see Micky win a National! By the way, I think the...

    Go with CaptainJack's advice. I've used this approach successfully in the past. If your dog is that enthusiastic to return to heel, you probably have a damn fine animal and you are doing good work...

    The St. Louis Golden club is made up of some awesome retriever people! I have judged for them twice and competed in a number of their events. Jeanee, Pat, John, Sue, Sasha, and the rest of the club...

    Little dude named Monty who used to throw for us at the Cape Fear trials. I think he worked for Pat Burns for a while, then for Bruce Koonce. He was from Rocky Point. Not a big guy, but strong!

    Thank you for posting this Erik. The rules are straight forward and define who is and who isn't an amateur. Fairly strict, but appropriate for our sport, as well. If you're making money off of the...

    I have always been an advocate of limiting the maximum number of dogs which can be entered by an Amateur. The number "3" sounds appropriate to me. Several of the trials in my area are entered by...
