    There is a lady in one of the training groups I train with once in awhile that brings a mini poodle and runs the set ups with it. It's pretty fun to watch. I think it has a tough time seeing over the high grass but no issues with wanting to get the birds on land or water. It hauls out ducks that look bigger than it is. I think she says it has either a Junior or Started title with it already(not sure). She brought it with while training her other dogs and it just wanted to give it a try. I have thousands of photos of dogs retrieving. The photos of hers are the only mini poodle I have ever seen go out and get ducks.

    At what point is AKC going to say enough is enough???? They keep let other breeds in hunt test game. Not that we would but we can't run our LABS in their events cause of specific breed events. Even though this can be entertaining as all us agree. ENOUGH is ENOUGH!!!!!!!

    Okay how many off breeds has anyone really seen run "retriever" events...I say welcome them...it's a game, not the end of the world...such ugliness for a non-competitive venue...if they can meet the standard, then good for them!

    My thoughts exactly. Who cares.
