    We used to have some snappers in our pond. Never even saw then while training. If it was just a small puppy I would be careful.

    I do think Chris is coming to our HT in Norfolk August 20/21 (at least I see his right hand man is in already). Norfolk is close to Omaha and a great chance to see him work first hand.

    Did you buy the dog to be the next NAFC or to hunt? If you bought it to be a hunter then hunt the dog.

    I need to clarify. The handler DID NOT make an issue over this. He fully understood why he failed and agrees then and now.

    The issue was brought up by someone else.

    I received a PM from Rick and don't think he is judging judges. He is looking at what he likes in a judge and has a fairly good grasp on it.
