    Unfortunately the water levels are terribly low, almost no swimming water. Dogs pretty much walking around in smelly muck. We have not trained there for several weeks.

    This discussion is an eye opener for me. I used to disagree (even if I didn't voice it) when HT folks said FT dogs don't mark, they just take a line really well and hold it forever. Reason I...

    Fred is a very quick dog. If you are transmitter-less, and he spins the wrong way, are you stopping on a whistle, calling him back in ("front") and repeating? Do you have him on a long line?

    Handler seminars in N. CA?

    I keep my eye on the Events Forum and notice lots of seminars for folks in the midwest. Are there any regularly recurring (or planned, episodic) seminars anywhere near Northern CA?
