    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.

    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.

    It's not like the drought came as a surprise? Guess they won't be testing equally land and water again this year. Be good for those whose dogs aren't that watery.
