    The training is the same for basics and transition no matter what the ultimate use of the dog. It is only in advanced work that the degression begins for field trailing, etc. Most questions are about basics and transition. So very few of the posts are about advanced work.

    I would guess that about 90% of the questions on RTF are about basics (ob through swimby).

    Maybe you can ask Chris? Maybe he would start another thread geared towrd the hunter and the dogs they work? This is not the only dog form out there so you could find what your looking for on other forms? I am a hunter and don't dog trial but I like this form because I like to think and work to train. I like well trained dogs and I don't care what breed or what they do, I like well trained dogs. Duckdon

    I haven't spent much time over there lately but I have noticed when I did stop by that it wasn't as active as in the past.

    My point is/was that there are different resources for different interests and goals. While I enjoy the occasional hunting post and pictures, what makes the RTF unique is the enormous amount of knowledgable dog people, both pro and amateur for help with training ideas, issues and discussions. Not to mention some of the nicest people I've ever met I've met through the RTF.

    Lots of great people, and info here, I agree.
    Its just nice to see what we do with our dogs besides train.
    Lets just see how the training is used.

    [QUOTE=Rick_C;1051761]Exactly.

    Yes. I like the Refuge, but would like a page for hunting on RTF. I tend to frequent 2coolfishing a LOT, but find myself reading some very informative posts on their "hunting" page.
    We are only as good as those that surround us.

    If you had the stones to fast rope out of Puff The Magic Dragon, you should try field trials. Only bummer is you have to be able to take being killed off week in and week out. Lol

    That was quite some time ago! !
    Have no interests of running ft's. Heck, I didn't really want to do the ht's, but got talked into it.
    Guess I'm just satisfied with having a hunting buddy and all around great dog.
    We are shopping right now and trap is right along with us.

    Mark, cool pics. Took my guy into tractor supply today for the first time. Kinda fun to sit them in an isle and walk to the next one over and see the expretions on the peoples face when you come back and get him. Even better when they find out he is only 9 mos. old. No hunting this year for him but when we do you can bet I'll have pics.
