i just read a thread on secondary selection and ideal selection,and rtf'ers seemed to enjoy the thread.numerous post,and responses,most of which were over my head.i gathered enough to know there are two distinghushed types of orders in which a dog retrieves the birds in a test or training.

however i really dont have a clue what ideal selection and secondary selection is.i am new to the sport and trying to take it all in.anyone care to break this down for me in lame terms.thanks,
