    Selection based on the results of just one DNA-based test is like looking at the Grand Canyon through a pinhole.

    Sorry to hear about your shooting, and glad you are mending well!

    Yes, dogs get PTSD, and sometimes it can be a career-ender. I was on my way to a mid-winter event, hit a patch of black ice, slid...

    Where it comes in handy is poison-bird blinds. Poison mark is thrown L-R, heel dog on right. After mark is down, "no bird", and heel dog over to your left side, then prep to run the blind. Moving the...

    Have to agree with Howard. To me, the only time what I'm wearing matters is in training. Then, I want to be 100% certain my dog can see every cast. Before I light a dog up for taking the wrong cast,...

    Pete;

    Agree.

    Having judges with hunting experience was supposed to prevent "test creep". I don't see where this has worked. Anyone who has run an upper-level test in recent years can agree.

    You will definitely need a dog on the taller/bigger end for where you are hunting. Fortunately, the Chessie breed's founders were smart enough to allow dogs anywhere from 21" to 26" at the shoulders,...

    You guys are a hoot!



    Couldn't agree more. But people can't spoil an event for you unless you let them. I usually just shrug it off as them having the problem. Marshalls should be allowed to...

    You are getting a lot of good advice, that all could apply, depending on the dog and the training approach you are using.

    What you need is a hands-on evaluation. Is there someone you train with...

    What else is she getting to eat?

    I feed ProPlan Performance to my 10-year old Chessie bitch. Usually she has little bouncers, but if she has been chewing grass, it will be as you described. I...

    In my experience, if a dog is going to eat any bird, it will be a dove. Something about the feathers and the size just makes them so easy to slide down the throat...

    Yup. And that hand-entering of data costs $. I may be wrong, but it seems more like a money-losing proposition from AKC's perspective. 1 JHR, 1 SHR, 1 MHR, and I forget what AKC charges per entry...

    All you have to do is get The Labrador Retriever Club to agree. They are the ones who have to make the proposal to AKC.

    Good luck with that.

    I just checked: HRC does allow any breed that falls into UKC "Gundog" group to run their Hunts. They also allow Airedales in their Hunts.

    So there ya go, guess the world will end in October 2012...

    I guess it depends on why you are doing the testing. If it is general curiosity, then the cheapest is the way to go. But if you want to certify with OFA, you will need to use one on OFA's list of...
