    When no one in the family will ride with you since putting your truck in a ditch because you are always " rubber necking " when you see a pond or water and it has training potential.

    You know you're a dog trainer/handler when......

    A) while driving down the interstate or new roads you take notice of every open field/pasture/pond that might have training potential and start making mental notes of various setups you could run! (I never understand why my friends are shocked by this when riding along with me )
    B) You bought a truck a year ago to haul bumper boys/kennels, then realize after purchasing some wingers and other equipment that said truck is NOT big enough to haul everything at once so you buy a bigger one!
    C) You drop something on the floor and use the closest of your highly trained retrievers to "fetch it up"

    When you can't sleep at night because you are thinking of how to set up new marks on a field/pond you use on a regular basis.

    When you can't sleep at night because you are thinking of what you need to accomplish in training tomorrow or trying to figure out what went wrong in today's session.

    When your wife asks the inevitable "what are you thinking about" question and the answer is always ducks, dogs, or the combination there of.

    When you have your county assessor's website saved to your favorites so you can find land owners to ask permission to train.

    When you buy a freezer knowing full well that you'll never have food in it but promise your wife you won't FILL it with ducks just so she'll let you buy it.

    When you walk your dog at the park and he's the only 1 that doesn't act like a complete retard when people and other dogs walk by and people ask you how you got him to mind so well.

    When you spend as much time at work searching google maps looking for training grounds as you do working.

    ... When you have thoughts at work like, "if only these people aimed to please as much as my labs."

    ... When you see your wife calling 10 minutes after you left the house, and you immediately wonder which one won't stop barking or which one got out.

    When you have an entire extra freezer dedicated to "training birds" and won't allow any extra foodstuffs in there in case you get lucky enough to acquire more after a hunt test.

    You know you're a dog trainer when you go to a Jack Nicklaus designed golf course and wonder if you could run a water blind on the signature hole ....Without getting caught
