    Hugh, I'm so sorry! I know you were beginning to wonder if *that* time was coming, but it's still so hard to go through. From your description, it was the kindest most loving thing to do for her....

    Does the "no attention getting devices used" part include a shot? It would seem appropriate to hear a shot prior to a bird flying through the air, LOL, but I've heard this debated at handler's...

    If you print it, so as to have a copy in hand, the extra width gives you plenty of room for notes. Or take it to your local copy shop and for way less than $10 they will trim it, add a spiral...

    I use them with little puppies, and I use them for obedience training (as in, training for competition obedience.) For one thing, it's hard to take a young dog to obedience class where all the other...

    Perhaps another aspect from a different point of view, is to go into summer with a fit dog on the lean side. (In addition to all the other good ideas posted above.) We also have the dogs spend more...

    Reserve jam is higher than jam? Semantically, that seems odd, but I'm glad to know it. Always thought it was the other way 'round.

    Lost one from a pile of ducks while running blinds with multiple dogs to a coyote. Considered ourselves lucky that he only took one, LOL.

    The walkup bird is to be thrown with no attention-getting device, so no duck call. But you may say "sit" or blow your whistle once after the bird is in the air. If the test is using a winger for that...
