    Rex generally attended 2 trials per year, Amateur and Open Nationals.

    He trained dogs and people.

    That is correct. And to think how much all of us would have missed if everyone insisted that he couldn't possibly have any good information to offer, since he didn't run trials. Lucky us!

    a very nice article. I like the very end were Mr. Belmont talks of sending Soupy to Rex at 5 months old. After the evaluation Rex agreed to train them both.
    I can only dream. And I do not think "we" (collective) would have missed anything Evan. As it seems all we need to do is look at the Trial success his students had.
    Then look at the diferent training books people from Lorie Jolly to Carrol Cassity to Mike Lardy to the long, long, long awaited Bio by Vicky, to yourself. All taken directly from Mr. Carr or directly from somebody on the grounds and look at the Trial success of those video students. It is kinda mind boggling to me that somebody who did not seem to market or sell to the masses his training program was / is able to, influance so many dogs.

    Good people & good information moves naturally. Good marketing gets people/ products far, but it is the person or product's integrity that sticks in people's minds.
