    If you guys can't see the merits of a database that gives you massive amounts of statistical information on judges dogs and handlers Then I don't know what to tell you. I am not saying that all the information is infallible nor Subjective But it is information and lots of it And information is power How you choose to interpret that information is up to you... But denying the fact that entry express is a useful tool "sifting" tool is absurd

    Where are these tough questions that should be answered by the salty old pros which require research for validating their answer?

    You guys can't be talking about the "what to name my dog" or resolving issues with the "My 10 week old isn't getting hand signals down right".

    Or my personal favorite: "Can I train my 9 year old whipabeaglechesador to be a great duck dog"

    I disagree. I now have a variety of new cheeses to try that I've never tasted before. I love cheese, but have little to zero experience in how its made, how to rate it. I mostly just know how to eat it.

    Maybe someone will follow and voice an opposing opinion, making others think, get involved in the topic.

    That person who has just run a bunch of juniors MIGHT have experiences that MAY help those that haven't..

    Do you really favor a discussion board where only approve experts give advice?

    Debate can be valuable for EVERYONE

    That's a really good question.

    Also, whatever happened to the dog with "the mother of all boils" on its "wee wee"?

    I'm gunning for 1000 posts before I seek asylum from The Cheese Forum. I'll try to think of a good training question.

    It's all about your palate - folks preference in cheeses can run the gamut & many times is influenced by it's pairing -

    I don't like Cougar Gold, used to like Tillamook until I was introduced to higher end cheese. Now troll the Farmers Markets & sample the product, on occasion buying something that tastes good.

    If they don't own their own animals I generally don't buy their product.

    High butterfat animals produce the best cheese - most cheddar can be bought for less than $2 a pound in 100 pound blocks, smoked & macaroni cheese.
