    Public Training Grounds - Etiquette

    Here's a tip. If you drive up early - but not that early - to a "first come first served" public training pond, and you see a guy standing in a white jacket, with a dog at heel, and another dog at...

    With all due respect, most failures I've seen judging SH were due to handler error. (Often regretted I could not give 1/2 ribbon to the good dog who had a bad handler.) As someone else said, once you...

    I don't think that legally or ethically this meets the intent of regs against "wanton waste." However, you might run into issues of possession limits and possession of birds out of season. (I've had...

    A "place board" is an excellent tool to use for teaching position and steadiness. Gives pup a clearly defined area, makes it very clear if his movement slips him off the board. 4 2x4s and a piece of...

    The discussion was started by the OP referring to a Senior (aka AKC) HT. 'Course there's nothing in the rules at RTF that requires a thread to stay on topic.

    Nothing. But that's not the language. All it says is that the honor dog must be in a position where pup is able to see the marks. How do you instruct the honor handler when you are judging?

    Can't judge what I did not see. And as noted above I'd want a look at the bird and maybe the fall area. And maybe ask the handler to check the dog's mouth to make sure there was not a problem. (Had...

    Looks like EE has the scratch issue resolved. And without the $25 charge, at least for clubs posted prior to the change. Had to scratch CRA. No problem.

    Small point. Actually there is no individual membership in AKC. Just clubs. And very few FT or HT clubs are members. Most field trials and hunt tests are "licensed" not member events.
