    Way more good apples in field trials than bad ones. Of course there are examples of poor sportsmanship or rudeness, but it’s rare. Most people complaining about politics in field trials are looking...

    I appreciate the challenge of training my own dogs from puppyhood up without the assistance of a pro while having a demanding job and a family. Although I don't have a titled dog, I have one that's...

    My thought process is it would be extremely difficult to have a dog's training line manners translate to a trial atmosphere without at least training in a group occasionally unless the dog was very...

    If you were the treasurer/secretary for an event, you'd quickly realize that fresh birds for every day would be cost prohibitive. Some clubs do a better job than others at keeping the birds in good...

    I saw an in-throw on a flyer last fall. It was shot from the top of a large mound and angled in to avoid power lines I believe. It landed either at the base of the mound or down off of it. Many...

    Walk around blinds are great for momentum and confidence. Stop running pattern blinds. They just make the trainer feel good.

    That's a very "grey" cheating mark. Would have been better thrown as a single and perhaps from the other side. I probably would have intervened by handling and slightly sooner when he made the...

    I’ve had very similar issues. Did the whole vaginal culture, thyroid, etc., deal and have come up short. The bitch in question had a litter of 10 puppies earlier on.

    I don't believe most people have no desire to be good judges. I think a great deal of the issues come from lack of knowledge. Consistently, it seems like judges disregard the effect the wind and...

    Ed, thanks for giving to the sport and giving an enlightening account of it. From a distance and to a know-nothing like me, the national appeared to be exceptionally well judged.

    2. Increase your standards in training - it's very likely your standard aren't high enough. A slight move forward with one foot becomes 3 or 4 feet at a test or trial. ...
