In obedience, in some parts of the country, the same dog wins almost every single weekend. Obedience can be like field trials in that everyone is looking to win the class for OTCH points. When you walk in the door and see certain dogs/handlers setting up, you pretty much know that your chances of winning just went way down.
In field trials, are there areas where the same dog wins every time out? Or is it there alot of variability?
I see alot of people being discouraged in obedience because there are a few dogs that seem to do almost all the winning.
