    I had a TTO (Triple Tibial Osteotomy) done on my bitch. This is a cross between TPLO and TTA. So, much the same op as yours. She was 4 years old. She had the op, then a month of strict crate...

    I'd love to see a copy of this 25 Essential Drills DVD. Is there anywhere where it can be ordered in PAL format (for the UK) rather than NTSC? and delivered to UK? thx

    Or just a copy of the...

    Breck, going back to the Championship 2009 clip, yes it was a mark that the dog was sent for, so the dog (and handler) 'should' have marked it. However, as Mr Polmaise has rightly said, there are a...

    Wayne just gave you the very best advice. :)

    Enjoy your pup. Let her bond and get to know you. Don't try too hard..... (there is no rush either)

    Abs no point in 'correcting' what you...

    Yes, you are quite right Breck, the bird was running before the dog got there. I didn't re-watch the video before , as I was actually there at the time ;) . So, my memory was a little different,...

    The dog would have been given some extra credit possibly on his collection of a long runner. So, marked up from an A, or at least some comments to remind the judges of the difficulty of the...

    Yeah, now I AM confused!!! LOL
    As Mitty says I was referring to Evan's clip, not Steve's, as that is the one with the rope in it. ;) Steve, like me, doesn't use a rope. (this is becoming like one...

    My 2p worth. A rope doesn't teach a dog or 'show' it anything. It is merely another correctional tool (low pressure as you call it - although shoulder stands don't look particularly low pressure to...

    Yes, I think my point was that there seemed to be more focus in having to reel the rope in and out in the training session, and less on the actual dog and communication between dog and handler. If...

    Nice little video Evan, to explain the casting with rope. It's not something we ever do over here. Just seems a bit unnecessary, and a lot of hassle getting tangled up in reams of rope! LOL But it...

    The bit in bold is not usually true. Usually the first dog sent is eliminated as 'first dog down' (another lovely bit of terminology for you! ;) ). This is because this dog had the best opportunity...

    Buy some Milk Thistle tablets from your chemist/online. These really help to support liver function.

    Sorry, by 'fake' I meant using dummies/bumpers/cold game and manufactured/man made scenarios that are the same for every dog running. It wasn't meant to offend! Just came out a bit wrong/negative!!

    No, it's very hard to get a run in a trial. They are hugely over subscribed. A one day stake has 12 dogs and a two day stake just 24. It's a largely amateur sport, with only one handler really...

    As Nicole says, 6-18 months is fairly 'normal', but all bitches are different. The youngest I've had come into season was 7 months, and the oldest 13 months.

    Thanks, makes sense sort of. We don't do any of that teaching the dog to fetch from your hand or ground here. But we would look at tidying up delivery at some point later, if appropriate.
