    Take a step back and look at the big picture.

    There are numerous traits and qualities that go into producing a nice dog. Structure, temperament, health, longevity of health, working ability,...

    Females - Not before maturity.


    Males - Never unless a specific condition requires it.

    That's about it, isn't it.

    If your club doesn't have any active members who are pursuing the MN, there really isn't anything in it for your club to be a MN member club.
  4. I think many are missing the point of the...

    I think many are missing the point of the original question. Put simply why would a club wish to join or continue membership in the MNRC? What's in it for a club to be a member of the MNRC?
  5. Don't confuse EE rules with the AKC's rules. The...

    Don't confuse EE rules with the AKC's rules. The Handlers, HTS and Club are required to abide by the Rules of the AKC. Handlers are in no way "required" to use EE. (Yup, it's going to make life...
  6. Well not really, the HTS is going to end up with...

    Well not really, the HTS is going to end up with more entries than they have spots for. The only difference is they're going to have to deal with the heartburn in developing a solution that works for...

    The AKC is publishing the event as "Approved", so the information is public and available to everyone equally.

    It is the handlers option, use a paper entry sent to the HTS, or wait around and use...
  8. You kind of missed the point. The AKC may have...

    You kind of missed the point. The AKC may have approved an event and judging panel (Therefore the event is Open) months before the HTS opens EE. So, if a savvy handler watches the AKC's website, they...

    You're getting it Ken!

    According to the rulebook (The Hunt Test Secretary SHALL receive entries) the HTS is the responsible party to receive entries, not EE. The club may also offer the sevices of...

    What do you know, somebody finally read the book. ;)

    Well, it depends.

    If your club is heavy with members who wish to pursue the MN, you're giving them an additional opportunity to get a qualifying pass at their home clubs event.

    If your club...

    Poll: The score sheet is the property of the Judge and...

    The score sheet is the property of the Judge and as such it is the Judges discretion. The handler may request to see their score sheet. This is very different than making an electronic copy that can...

    This mess is now fully in the hands of the Politicians. It will take time but the City will negotiate a settlement before letting this get to court. The sitting politicians won't want to face this...

    Another vote for Golden Lake. Well designed and well made.

    You're better off waiting and doing the ultrasound later. If she's pregnant take your chances with the litter. The shot screws them up so bad that it isn't worth it.

    The tight wavy coat has been around since the breed was very young.

    In an ideal world I agree with you.
    Unfortunately however we're not in an ideal world and a very large portion of the gene pool is involved with this issue. There just aren't that many clear dogs...

    For most, it isn't a big deal. It's just excess dander.
    If the dog has other immune related issues however the effects of Icthyosis can be magnified dramatically.

    I suspect this change in interpretation has more to do with politics and limiting the supply of puppies available to people in the U.S., forcing more people to obtain young dogs from shelters rather...

    Ichthyosis is genetic so it's not going to go away. The symptoms may go away for periods of time and return when the dog is stressed. Typically you see flakes on a new puppy. As the pup matures the...

    You might try k9data.com
    Labradors are not as complete as Goldens but it's worth a try.

    There are two major reasons why numbers are down in JH and SH.

    The first is the economy. There is plain and simply less disposable income in most homes than there was 10 years ago.

    The second...

    Well, it may or may not warrant stopping the test and moving the decoy. Where the exactly decoy is in relation to the placement of the bird? The judges are there and have to make the call. Remember...

    I believe there should be no option. You go back three dogs and re-run this series entire test, including the blinds.
