    I hope your decision was made for reasons other than poor health or family issues. We all need to take a break sometimes. Wishing you the best and hoping all is well.

    I am sorry to see somebody leaving the sport. Hopefully you will be back. Take care and wish you the best.

    I quit 25 years ago, should have stopped 5 years sooner. Just a game.
    Just for the record I have very fine dogs. Some of the best in the whole country....or at least on my own block anyhow.

    The folks who hang into this sport the longest seem to be those who enjoy training versus solely seeking a ribbon every weekend. There are relatively few rewards in this game other than enjoying the companionship of training partners and the dogs who try to please at all the times. I've seen people come and go in this sport for over 30 years. Usually someone will get the itch to try training a dog. They may quit relatively quickly because they don't get positive emotional payback. Or their first dog does very well but the next one doesn't measure up. It's best to quit if one gets discouraged. Only dogs will suffer if a trainer isn't enjoying the process. One person's perceptions.......
