    Whether you see a flyer or not in Junior is up to the judges. In this area you will see a flyer in Junior, usually two unless the design of the test doesn't allow for shooting one safely.

    It's really up to the HTS and Test Chair. If you've never run the dog before they're likely going to be willing to move you to the lower level. If you've run dogs before, you're probably sol.

    At this time the Rules are not written to allow for such a scenario (The MNRC's and the AKC's).

    Well, our club has discussed that topic in depth in the past as a way to get the entry situation under control. Raising the price to $125 would certainly help keep the Master test in the black,...

    Well, it's never as simple as it sounds.

    From a liability standpoint the club needs to be certain that whoever takes a dog to the line has signed the entry. That little paragraph is the basis of...

    It's kind of a trick question. It depends upon what kind of monitor you're looking at, the color temperature it's set at, the white balance setting, and the brightness it's set at.

    I think you're probably correct. The receiver circuit path is corrupted for some reason. Time to get out the magnifying glass and take a close look.

    I agree!

    We have been buying, training, breeding and competing with goldens for several decades, many of which were affected and nobody gave it a second thought. Now the ability to test for it...

    If you bred to a clear, there is no chance of producing an affected offspring.

    I too have done the numbers for more than a decade and Mike Peters is correct. It takes more help to do a Master Test than a Qual, and far more than a Junior or Senior. Master Tests are a break even...

    The financial outlook is the same for our club as well. The return for the efforts expended is just not there for the Master test. We feel that as an AKC Club we are still obligated to...

    What's the rush?
