    Pretty sure music city has the record for most dogs ever to run an HRC test(all flights). I think it was 2 summers ago. They had 7 full finished flights, I think 4 or 5 seasoned and 2 or 3 started

    Agree with higher standard on obedience, but I've also found that desensitization helps as well. If a dog isn't as jacked up because they have been desensitized, they are much more likely to be...
