    "AKC rules, a stylish Retriever Field Trial dog works with “an alert and obedient attitude,” “eagerness and speed” on land and water, aggressive search for the fallen bird, prompt pick-up and fast return. “Style is apparent in every movement of a dog and throughout his entire performance at trials...” IMO intelligence and pedigree are an important asset towards a stylish dog!

    When you see a stylish dog work, everything about the dog says there is not a thing in the world he or she would rather be doing.

    So, I can zero a dog for style that walks to the birds or has it's tail tucked and ears pinned back without a handler bit$&ing that they got dumped?

    The handler bitching happens without regard for the reason being dropped, look at it as a benefit of judging!

    I think for a dog to earn a zero on style it would have to be obvious to anyone watching that the dog was just not into performing at all.

    Yet I see dogs every weekend that don't look like they are enjoying anything, but they pass. As far as everyone else is concerned, they are not the ones with the book in their hand...
