    Some in your group are currently running FT opens, Quals , and this year Derbys. It's how WE poor people do it every year that can't go South.

The young dogs coming in don’t need the South for odedience, ff, ccing, and other basics. The majority of these dogs are going to be gun dogs anyway.
    The OP was looking for a pro to take their dog for the month of March. That's awesome that your training with your Amateur group, but If you want to take their dog and charge a fee, then your a pro not a Amateur. I guess I'm confused as to what you're offering.

    To the OP, most pros probably won't take a dog in for a month to train. They don't want to deal with a dog that is only going to be in for that short of time.
    You may want to see if a HT/FT amateur will board your dog for that amount of time and also get some work in occasionally.

    How does a HT/FT amateur go about boarding and occasionally getting some work in for a month? Obviously there's no $ changing hands correct?

    Thats right, if you take money from someone to train their dog and still run under amateur then you better hope the right folks dont find out

    Could you find a pro in AZ locally??? That would be the option I'd go for.

    RoadKill: Thanks for the suggestion. Layne is a great fellow and I've arranged to have Charley go there. I really appreciate your kindness in replying with useful information (as opposed to some of the snarky discussion that followed). Jchristi
