    i requested a dog related consultaion with an individual i did not personally know, but who's credentials i respect. the advise was given to me willingly and at no monetary cost. i listened intently and plan to follow the suggestions i recieved.........probably thanks for the time and wisdom of experience!

    this is a good thread. we should all listen, learn and act on what we learn more often.

    Unfortunately Most people will not learn until they screw up, you can advise thru your experience until your blue in the face, still most people must have the experience, Even if they are hard lessons. Just Human Nature

    vet told her "it didn't matter if she wasn't going to show the dog."
    I encounter this kind of attitude at work all the time. (not about dogs) Some people will just keep asking until they get the answer they WANT to hear.

    Hey Kuickie thanks for that one, I used it today on a student decoy painter. I forgot you gave it so you didn't get credit, two more uses and it is mine anyway....BSEG!

    Charge for advice. Like Chris says "they need skin in the game".


    My standard fee is a bottle of good scotch.
    Just for the record I have very fine dogs. Some of the best in the whole country....or at least on my own block anyhow.

    Evan hit the nail on the head! Most people aren't really seeking advice but are in fact only seeking responses which mirror their own opinions.

    DSemple, by good scotch I assume you're referring to something like The Balvenie 21 yr or better?

    Tito's Handmade Vodka is a fitting "fee". Best stuff made.
