    Nope but I've done the basics for a few,,, I've run dogs in the open and have gotten to the water marks. I do have several QAA's under my belt. Never ran a springer but I think I could figure it out, it's really not that hard.. MH'd a lot of dogs and hope to get a CH/MH on a chessie and hopefully a boykin.

    If my venue was FT's I know I'm astute enough to pursue that endeavor... Tough way to make a living and raise a family so I chose hunt tests and gun dogs.

    Cool, glad to see that you did it yourself. Training an FC or AFC deserves appreciation! I just know that AFC Or FC are tough titles to obtain.

    And you did a "slap down" with this history to back you up??? Blahahahaha... Alcohol was obviously involved.

    anyone foolish enough to bet against Ms Becker , well bring your money to Vegas and throw it on a roulette table because you stand a better chance...Honestly you wanna bet against a professional gun dog trainer that does this 24/7 365 days a year...an experienced professional dog trainer is gonna beat you in any breed and any format once they are given ample time to find out the nuances of that breed and the game played

    My friend George was a National finalist/judge and got out of the retriever games...took up the pointer games with a GSP and has won the National Shooting Dog title a couple of times with two different dogs

    So Angie, after the "little pecker" got done picking at your tough (but beaut-a-mous) hide, did you enjoy your snack? Congrats again on the BOW with the curly brown dog!!! If you want a real challenge, I challenge you to train my eng. cocker pup to a MH/MH for free!!! Now THAT is an offer you can't refuse, right???
