  1. Something besides a poodle wins Westminister

    Nice looking Beagle.

    It always interests me to see how many of the best of breed and group dogs have working titles. Many of the sporting dogs do, I think there is even one with an MH, several...

    I would love to find better duck and goose hunting. It is pretty poor here in Western MA. Also we miss out 4-5 months water training and at least 3 months training period in the winter here. would...

    I for one think it is VERY odd that W2 forms were not mailed to work, but to another employees personal address. That makes no sense at all. How would some of you nasty comment folks like to go to...

    Food is a great way to shape and teach new behaviors, regardless of the age of the dog. I also find it "de-stresses" dogs in certain situations. T drill being one of them. A most stressful drill...

    About 10 inches here Agawam/Westfield MA. Wind still very strong. Much better than we originally thought, but south and east of us got hit quite hard.

    More snow on Friday and Monday. No training...

    We see a lot of lepto out here (New England) and many of the dogs that get it are just house pets because the carriers are animals like raccoons, that are in everyone's backyard. The problem with...

    Good health and good friends are two things we often take for granted. Sending hope and good wishes to those in need.

    Ouch, very lucky he did not lose his sight. I have never seen a gun stand like that.

    Chris

    Up until a year or so ago, my pittie mix was my set up dog. She loved to retrieve and could swim faster than any of my retrievers. She did have an incredible prey drive though, so I never...

    Maybe a weekday test would work out well for pros, but who the hell would be chairing, marshaling, gunning, bird throwing,etc for it. Most of our club members work and many are able to take a Friday...

    George was a gentleman. Always a smile and a kind word. He loved his dogs and despite his own health issues continued to be as involved as he could. He made the sport better.

    Steve - a dog running around is different than a dog being sent for bumpers. I hike my dogs from 8 weeks on for an hour every morning. They get to run, jump, whatever, but they do it at their pace....

    Most dogs growth plates do not close until they are at least 1 yr old. I don't think anyone can give you exact yardage or miles, but if you start FF and CC around 6-7 months, your dog will probably...

    We should all take the message that Wayne was there to work with his dog and learn what needed more work. We have all made handler errors and will continue to do so as long as we run dogs. No...

    My first golden had CD TD MH titles according to AKC. Never ran a tracking test with her but hard to argue with AKC records.

    I am looking at the Dogtra 1900 NCP Field Star. I don't have it yet, but had to send my TT Pro500 in yet again as the transmitter won't hold a charge. It has only been 8 months since it was last...

    Double haul - in what universe will a 90 dog MH test finish in 2 days. Be grateful if we finish in 3. Takes the entire first day to run the first series, even with a 5 min/dog series. Especially at...

    Karen- I am judging for a club that is having 2 separate MH tests starting on the same day. Not split flights as I first thought but 2 actual 90 dog MH tests. I did not think it legal either, but...

    Tom - not sure if that is in the HT rules but it is stated in the FT rules. I'm certain there have been many tests where there was little to no land due to flooding, so it all evens out.
