    The concern is that you have to get the offending testicle found and removed, which eliminates the extra risk, and also that it while a normal neuter process is outside of the body, to remove the...

    If you're buying a male pup with a full registration, it ought to have 2 balls, or you ought to get a lower price, at least enough to cover the cost of the medical processes needed to deal with it. ...

    That is the original purpose and I think is still the intent. I hunt, and in fact, that's how I got into retrievers in the first place. My point is that some of the trappings that go along with...

    The idea that FT dogs somehow need more help than a hunt test dog does is silly. It might appear that way because the gunners are all wearing white coats, but I'd much rather try to pick up a hunt...

    The comparisons to kids are off base I think. Dogs we love and are a hobby, pet, companion, and I know we tend to probably love them more than we love most other people, but if your dog doesn't live...

    HH and Grundens are pretty similar and will keep you dry and warm - maybe too warm. Also some of the jackets don't have pockets and the bibs don't, so it can get hard to handle everything when...

    Not an expert by any stretch, but, since nobody has chimed in much, I would probably stop using the raised arm as any part of your sit command - just the whistle or verbal sit.

    I think you mean you can't run 2 groups of 90 dogs for MH - be it 2 flights in the same test or an actual double master.

    The only problem with your plan is that when workers are not able to run in...
