    Most owners who use pro's step to line "alone during competition" Their pro's may or may not be there for advice, but while running a test it is just the handler and his/her decisions. Some...

    When a dog starts popping on fairly short marks (50-150 yds) I wonder what the handler has been doing that might cause this.
    Have you been handling the dog on marks, when it gets in trouble?

    You don't want a dog finding the bird easily. You are looking for a discipled hunt in the area of fall. I would not want white bumpers or ribbon on birds in this case.

    Yes it does make sense . Thanks for that detailed explanation. I know of a few dogs in our training group that will benefit from this.

    I can't imagine a judge in any retriever field trial, making note of a dog that has delivered to hand, but has an unconventional grip on a bird.
