    This topic will be discussed on a conference call this evening by the Canadian National Committee I am told. (It is on the agenda among other topics, this is not a special meeting just to discuss this situation.)

    Alain, Your English is great. I very much appreciate your time on the phone and will offer that if you ever, ever feel difficulty with an English Speaking American in written form, please get them on the phone. I work a good bit with French Speaking Quebec residents and your English is great!

    Thank you for your time today!

    I have been told that e-collars are outlawed in the UK, so guess this is not surprising. If you don't want it to happen in the US, we should all be supporting organizations that work against this kind of legislation. Got an email from the AKC Pac this morning and I am going to contribute. www.akc.org/pac Fight now or lose what you hold dear in the future.

    No problems we had retriever training before e collars. Any good videos or books on how to properly use bird shot for training? ...........? Oh crap I bet there is.

    It is not only the e collars you need to worry about being ban, but the birds. This last weekend I was at a seminar for barn hunts and was told Canada was outlawing barn hunts because they are worried that the rats are being abused.

    Chris, that is what I kept telling him when I was puppy searching. His English is much MUCH better then my French. An all around great guy to deal with and does love his dogs.

    We already cannot use live flyers in Canada the way they are used in AKC tests. We can only use live birds if they free flush. No winger thrown or hand thrown and shot. It has been quite a number of years since that was added to the criminal code here.

    Had to know that was coming... With all the namby pamby's... It will follow here in time. My wife got into the barn hunts too. Thought about that... But the damn rats were in an air condition room being pampered when they were not out in their tubes "working".

    I didn't think the rats were abused, but some people think that asking anyone or thing to work is abuse. They think the rats should be free, until it comes to their house. The lady giving the seminar has her dogs work to eliminate rats from houses, but she does have a group of pet rats for training. It was funny that my younger Labrador went on point as soon as she smelled the rat. I didn't think I was bought one of those pointing Labs. We might play this game, my Labradors seemed as though they liked it, but I'm not going to have any pet rats. I can't be in the sun anymore to train for hunt test, so have been looking for something indoors or at night to satisfy the hunting habit.
