    Yes sir, that is why I asked for advice on here! Thanks to those you have replied and given their advice.

    Harley are you onshore now? If so common up to the Cajun Riviera HT this week end and take a look at one of the Redstar dogs.

    Do you really want to increase entries at the Junior Hunt Test level? Simply put a limit on entries and everyone will flock to JR and fight over how to get in and what to change to make it fair for all !!!!!

    Some thoughts on pricing Derby dogs.

    For years I have been told that an old rule of thumb for the pricing (or establishing the value) of a Derby dog has been $1,000. for each Derby point.

    It takes 10 Derby points to get on the National Derby list. Are all those 10 pt. Derby dogs worth $10,000.? Some maybe, some maybe not. There are Derby dogs who do not make it through the Qual to become all-age contenders. It is a big leap from being a good Derby dog to being an all-age competitor.

    The reverse is true. There are some dogs who are late bloomers. They may not have made the Derby list, but they matured later and obtained their FC and AFC titles.

    Helen, while I agree with you on derby dogs the Op is only concerned with finding a gundog/hunt test dog so the pts really don't matter.
