    Default Mh50

    So now that they are letting you list the number of passes do you think MH50 will become a thing? I don't think MH100 is possible so I was thinking that the MH50 will become the equivalent of 500 pt HRC Club. Does that mean much to anyone. In a few years there are going to be a bunch of MH50 NMH5 QA2 walking around and I wonder if anyone will care.

    I know of at least one dog that was reported to have had more than 100 Master passes and I'm sure there are others. Her name was HRCH Doulab China MH *** "China."

    Surely there needs to be a limit on the number of "TITLES" we award to a dog in the same pass/fail non competitive venue

    I guess if you put your mind to it you could do MH100 but that seems a bit much to me. All that time and money and you are just doing the same thing over and over. I would think that you would want to step up to the next game or something. As I am writing this I realize that there are 1000 point HRC dogs and AKC derby dogs with 80+ starts so I guess that kills my point.

    The dog that I mentioned was the personal dog of an AKC HT Pro. I guess he kept running her because that was what he was going to be doing every weekend anyway. Consider though that there is a dog that passed the Master National 9 times, 3 that passed it 8 times and 9 that passed it 7 times. I doubt those dogs did that on the minimum possible number of master passes. I get your point though.

    MH 50 shows a high degree of trainability and that the dog is a consistent performer. I would think those would be desirable traits to those interested in breeding HT dogs. JMHDAO......

    Who would be interested in obtaining multiple titles and accumulating meaningless points?
