    That is plenty of time to train in actual hunting conditions. I don't hunt everyday, just to give trap a rest and be a house dog, and we didn't go today because of minus 6, and a winchill of of minus 17. I won't do that to my buddy.
    Oh, and Wayne, RTF, yep, what are we training for?
    Just titles? if so why? Just to breed a mh, qaa, etc, for the money? are you saying that's what this is all about?
    The money, titles?
    Where are the breeders/ trainers that have pride in producing great all around dogs as companions and hunters?
    Mark, a search will produce many treads discussing FT/HT dogs and hunting. Here is a recent link for you. http://www.retrievertraining.net/for...highlight=roux

    Its just nice to see what we do with our dogs besides train.
    Lets just see how the training is used.
    Many that field trial hunt their dogs, and even more in the HT world, but some simply like the challenge and companionship that comes with the training and trialing. This is an excellent place to get your daily fix of whatever interests you the most. Best of luck with your pup. Enjoy!

    There is room for all of us here. If you want to talk obedience start an obedience thread, if you want to talk 300 yd blinds start a three hundred yd blind thread,if you want to talk hunting start a hunting thread, if you want to talk SEC football..........never mind.

    A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of widths.
