    Yes it is.
    "Force fetch isn't about retrieving as much as it is conditioning a dog to handle pressure, in a very controlled environment. It's about putting a dog in the position of having to figure out how to turn off pressure by finding the correct response. This translates into numerous areas in training." Sharon Potter.

    Funny you should mention that. I have 2 pitbulls that get to swim in this water when we train there. Our third one - get this - had TPLO surgery on Friday! (Thank goodness it was not my beloved Bus-turd. He's running an AM on Saturday. We don't get to run that many trials, and we're very psyched to run this weekend)

    holy guacamole that's a long swim!! I could send my boy, go out for lunch, come back, and he'd probably not be quite back with the bird yet

    A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of widths.

    Google Earth tells you dimensions? Or did you have to measure?

    I remember driving from Chicago to SLC a few years ago, totally envious of all the pretty farmland and ponds as I made my way to I80. At least I had that to remember as I drove across Nebraska.
