Far too much drivel on RTF these days for me to read 5 pages.
BTW- change your post per page settings and it is only 3 pages long.

I am about to jump into field trials this year with my pup or maybe train this year with my puppy while waitng to compete next year. However this is very encouraging for a novice like myself to here of a first time trainers success!
Good luck, Wingman!
It's my first time, too and so excited to be attending my first one next week - just to watch and meet people, then to compete in the Derby in April.
RTF is a great place to learn!

"Helping Hunters Train Their Dogs"
I have a new pup coming to me next week and I've decided to train positively and to hopefully compete in some of the games as well since I now have the time and money to do so. It's great to see and hear of others doing the same thing. I know traditional methods work great but I like the challenge of doing something different that might possibly be better and more comfortable for me and my dog. I look forward to continuing to learn here with you and others! No matter how you choose to train we all share the great love of these amazing dogs and the hunting games.
