    Hi Angie,

    I'm not capable of answering many questions on this forum but since I am from the state with the Boykin as the state dog I can answer this one. It's actually already been answered, but to confirm, the MH would be awarded for the upland work and the MHR would be awarded for the retriever work.

    The Boykin is a nice little dog and South Carolina has some very sincere Boykin breeders.

    Hope this helps,

    Wally

    Wally, South Carolina doesn't have the only sincere and reputable breeders... Of course, Angie already knows that...

    Angie,

    Was your Boykin the only spaniel to run?

    When I first got into NAHRA there was a guy who would bring out his FC Springers. His dogs would do the tests we set up, just not the same way our retrievers did. I'm not sure how they would be judged by AKC Retriever HT judges. The Springers tend to want to always use their nose on marks and blinds. They did great on the NAHRA trails!

    Tom, at our test there was a fella with 3 boykins entered. They did exactly as you describe. The one I have in training now has me a believer!! I got him right at 6 months and I taught him to mark with his eyes and not trail with his nose. His trainability and water attitude can match any retriever on the truck. Plus he can flat out mark. I'm serious. This particular fella is out of CH bitch and a dog that guides for a game farm. His structure and type is wonderful.

    I told everyone that his breed was what I was going to get when I was an old lady and couldn't handle a big lab anymore, but that's so far down the road I can't wait that long...

    p.s. We don't let Hank look in any mirrors or shiny surfaces we let him think he's a lab...

    Hank, the duck dog....



    Could you not kiss the cheeks right off of this guy?? I'm in Love!!! Don't tell Bernie the chessie.... LOL

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    Angie,

    I was always impressed with the Setters' and Pointers' ability I have seen. Their owners play a different game than we do. But, the dogs are good!

    I had the chance one time to participate in the field demonstration for an AKC Sporting Group Judges Institute. Every breed except the Weim's were represented. Every dog was a CH and had either an advanced HT or FC/AFC. It was very neat to see ALL those breeds do what they were orginally developed for.

    The light deadgrass bitch in my avatar was the chessie. After doing water marks Annie Clark had judges come over and put their hands on her and see that her skin was dry. They saw what a proper coat was and how it functioned.
