    Yes, it could fail you. But it would have to be a repeated offense. It all comes down to how many times did the dog do it (if on all 4 birds, then trainability it not there). How many times did the handler have to tell them to fetch it up on each bird, etc., etc. Now from the description provided, it looks like the handler never had to say fetch one time, just that the dog dropped the bird, shook off, and immediately picked it right back up to deliver to hand of handler. I personally would have a hard time not passing a dog with that description, even if it happened on all 4 birds (assuming the handler never had to say fetch one time).

    I also do not look at his response as being unsportsmanlike, unless there was direct intent in the delivery. Again, following everything, my first read is that is most likely a parting joke comment, but then again, tone does not come out in typed words.

    One of my favorite quotes was by a judge after the new AKC directive to "shoulder the gun" as the birds are thrown. "If you fail to shoulder the gun during the first series I am going to give you a gun warning". "If you fail to shoulder the gun in all three series, you will leave with 3 gun warnings".

    You must have been there because you got it all right. My parting comment was just a light hearted joke. I was not mad at the judge for failing her, but why would you let her run the whole test if that is failing in junior? As I said, I was not upset over failing, but the pro that I bought Sadie from and sent her back for training was livid and yes she did watch the dog run.
    As for judges in general, we ask the to do a job and they may come from long distances or have to take off from work to do what we asked them to do. I went to the test and by doing so i asked for his opinion and got it. I learned something in every test I ran her in and that was worth the cost of entering. Thank you all who take the time to judge.

    Running a senior test with my firebreather.

    "Can you slow that son of a bitch down? I'm still trying to write down his score from the first mark, and he is over there ready to run his water blind.

    Had the same thing happen in a derby recently. After running two good land series and doing a nice job on the go bird in the third (and final series), I sent her for the memory bird and heard, " that's the nicest line we've seen today on that bird" right before she hooked left, split the difference and ended up back in the old AOF! Kiss of death.
