Thanks to all involved. RTF is a great place to come to talk about dogs and stuff and a place where we may not agree all the time but like when you get three people training together two always agree that the other does not know what they are doing..........LOL

Being new to the sport, I have been naive to the potential risks involved with travel and overnight stay. Following this nightmare has made me far more aware of security and I am thinking about certain details that never would have crossed my mind before. It is obvious from all the posts that this tragedy stirred alot of emotions in most us here at RTF. I think because we could almost imagine ourselves in the same situation. Even with all the hurt and anger that we felt, we can't come close to that of the Arthur family. From one retriever loving family to another, our hearts go out to you.
As for RTF, I am proud to begin an association with such a fine group of people. Franco, Raymond and Chris thank you so much for your leadership.
Proves that dog people = good people. Thanks to all that brought this criminal to justice and hopefully effected change in animal controls' future actions in that area.
"Force fetch isn't about retrieving as much as it is conditioning a dog to handle pressure, in a very controlled environment. It's about putting a dog in the position of having to figure out how to turn off pressure by finding the correct response. This translates into numerous areas in training." Sharon Potter.
Add my name to the list of those praising Franco, Raymond and Chris. This is RTF at its best.
