    Magnanimous offer. Saw a lot of "Ch"s on your site but not anything with HRC in front of that CH, or much of anything field-related after the dogs' names, either - nothing at all with any Boykins. What training issues, exactly, would you help a handler come unstuck on with their Boykins and what program would you use in so doing?

    Maybe I was wrong but I didn't read that comment as a knock on the breed. Simply an offer for training advice for a new retriever owner.

    To the original poster. Take a road trip & train with the North Alabama HRC crew. I will introduce you to a gentleman who knows just a little about the breed. His credentials now include another win at the Boykin nationals and he also took 4th this year with his other pup Pelham. Way to go Butch and Stoney!!!

    Be fair, Crackerd. Someone offered to help with training.

    1) I didn't know that titled parents were required to get a good litter (Poika of Handjem is an OS but had no titles)
    2) If you read the poster's credentials as an animal trainer (assuming you're talking about Briogirls), they look OK to me
    3) What program are you using that you would recommend? That is far more helpful than sarcasm.
    4) I saw HT titles on her curlies. I think she just may walk the walk as well as talk the talk

    My boykin puppy was just born on the 19th. I'm going to go see her probably next weekend. I'm very excited to bring her home. I'm from the Boykin's home state though. If you want a book for training that's just boykin related, check out just ducky publishing, they have a book with an emphasis on training boykins. Sorry if someone already posted this, I'll admit, I skipped to the end to post that for you.
