    Great post! You hit the nail on the head, you can have a great marking dog that is likely to go on to bigger things in the AA, but one little squiggle on one mark in a derby leaves room for some...

    Seeing eye dog training is certainly complex and difficult, but no more so than advance retriever training, just different. In training retrievers we start early, actually the day we bring them home...

    What's wrong with finger snapping and leg tapping? That's how most people train and what I do when I hunt.

    Does the "lining" rule apply even after you and your dog sat through the birds going down? Are you prevented by rule to line your dog up on a send? I don't think you are. I believe that after the...

    Let's make it personal, let's pretend there was a bad guy holding your beloved family pet, your black Lab hunting companion, with a knife to his throat while you were standing there armed, he starts...

    That only happens in the old Roy Rogers or Hoppalong Cassidy movies. The reality is police and those of us that have been trained on firearms self defense, are trained that when the decision to...

    Sorry, but if you are stabbing my dog to death and I have a gun, I'm not hesitating.

    When did it become ok to run away, resist or attack a cop as if your were just getting in a fist fight with some guy? When I grew up it was "Stop or we'll shoot", if you didn't stop running there was...

    I believe that to be true. A lot of the problem is related to some of the newer-cheaper shotshell "brass" base getting stuck in the chamber. That even happens on my early 80s Wingmaster 3" magnum if...

    Force fetch is a tool and very important part of the process, but it really isn't't meant to force a low drive, unwilling retriever into liking the game. Sure, the guy could reinforce FF and make the...

    I started off 22 years ago just wanting a dog that could swim out into the decoys and pick up my ducks. I joined a small training group and through training, my mentor recognized talent in my dog and...

    I was thinking of my old training partner Jim Mitchell who made a FC-AFC out of a very talented pup all amateur trained. He was a real student of the game and benefited from his uncle Don Berard a...

    Wolters works for some dogs, but there are many newer programs that work much better. Lardy and Evan Graham come to mind. I used Wolters Water Dog with my first Golden in 1979 and it worked...

    I don't know about that Magnum. I kept a pup out of a breeding of my stud and a nice bitch. My stud dog weighs 74# the bitch was large for her sex at just under 70#s. Most of the pups in the litter...

    I watched an hour long special by John Stossel last weekend on how Swat exercises have grown over the years. When they first came out they were used quite sparingly, only the hard core hostage or bad...

    Of course it's not an excuse, it is a reason though. Training and holding the police to a higher standard is the answer. A crucial part of the training is to educate them on just how emotionally...

    That story just backs up my point that non-dog people will react in a crazy manner unless they receive training about dogs. Of course dog versus mailman stories are legendary. Those of us who have...

    I would chalk all the cast refusals up to interference and grade you on the rest of the blind. I don't think a re-run would be a good idea in this case.

    I agree with you in that I believe the percentage of dog owners and policemen with good dog sense probably mirrors the general population. That said though they don't "hate" dogs, there are a good...

    Like many of you, I occasionally leave my 2-3 Golden's loose in my fenced in yard. I usually give people (plumber, etc) a heads up to make sure they lock the gate behind them when they leave, and...

    For some weird quirk of the EE algorithm, I found myself in the holding blind behind Bill and Ammo more than a few times this past year, plus I got to train with them a few days last winter. First...

    Assuming you have trained to high standards, consistently hold those standards in training and weekend trials, the dogs do learn to differentiate. There is such a huge difference in atmosphere...

    I was incredibly shy growing up, I would literally fail a class rather than stand up a speak. At party's you would find me in a corner reading a book rather than talk to strangers. Dogs and dog work...

    I'm set up the same way, I thought that was the default position. I only click on the training forum and events page, never seen the POTUS forum, things get heated enough talking about training.
