    what Mark was pointing out, at the time. I think. Was when you walked to the running line. If you looked like you belonged there, as opposed to say the express line at the Wal-Mart. It changed the way some judges looked at your dogs work.

    How you made a connection between my opinion that dressing so a dog can see you is advantageous, and "belonging there" versus shopping for clothes at Wal-Mart is beyond me.

    The two don't have anything to do with one another.

    While I can certainly agree with dressing nicely, if someone walks to the line not using every advantage within the rules to help their dog, then they really do look like a schmoe. They probably need to also train more. Clothes aren't going to bail them out.
