    I took them as insults and replied in kind.

    There are those internet heroes who hide venom behind a "joke", which is just as I saw it. The remark about bad manners still stands.

    Ive expanded the discussion a little in a new thread which I hope will generate more light than heat from people with an informed opinion.

    Exactly. And they do not test or trial like we do. So yes the training methods and expectations are different. Not better. Different.

    Really? I would hate to read their worst jokes, to a lot of people reading these posts it comes across as insults.
    Anyhow, let's get on with the topic at hand

    This forum doesn't need that crap, looks bad for the forum.
    I think we all going to get bent out of shape over this. Can't folks realize and recognize there is more than one way to train a dog????? I am not familiar, other than what Eug and Milner have posted, which looks pretty cool, how the Brits train to those hunting conditions, but each one of us and they too have a way or program to train by right or wrong to each one of us. We should all learn to respect that! IMHO You too Dooley!!!!

    Thanks to Milner for posting all that information.

    [QUOTE=Colonel Blimp;

    And the appallingly bad manners of the dogs in the US are all too clearly reflected in their handlers who themselves are easily distinguished by their wobbly fat arses and waddling gait.

    But Yellow Machine started it. I think Eug already admitted he was replying in anger.

    Yes, of course there is more than one way to train a dog......... but, to train a dog to successfully compete at the upper level of the AKC FT spectrum the logical choices are very limited

    Yes John and I understand but my point is we all need to learn to respect that others train there dogs different ways. Our way is not the only way!!!IMHO

    If these threads are not including the training for the upper levels of AKC FT's I stand corrected.

    If they are,.....there are logically few ways to train, and to do other wise is pure folly .
