    It wasn't that many years ago that a lot of the HRC tests did not fill and 2 flights was an abnormality, at least in my area. I believe that a few years ago, a lot of master tests didn't fill until...

    I don't know about a "hunt-em-up" whistle, but I've seen people give the dog a hunt-em-up command at the end, sort of releasing the dog to hunt on its own. Sometimes this has really backfired on the...

    I've had a Garmin 550, liked the collar, loved the light on it. I got in 5 years ago or so and the battery didn't last very long at all in the cold. Then I made the switch to a Dogtra Edge RT, very...

    HRC is all about realism so the handlers have to shoot every bird that is picked up. The HRC rule book states the blind must be shot immediately before that blind is ran.

    HRC, seasoned let it be the judges discretion to shoot the blinds. I’ve judged a lot of seasoned dogs this year and shooting the blind seams to confuse more dogs into thinking they “missed” a mark. ...

    I put a couple pop up vents on the front of my topper and a cheap vent fan on the back. Driving down the road there is a pretty good draft going through. I also hang a endless breeze fan on the...

    Nerves. I've judged a lot of HT's and generally over half the handlers are nervous and do something that affects their dog. I still get nervous and make poor decisions from them.

    What has worked for me is to give the "fetch" command as soon as the dog drops the bird/bumper with ear pinch. It took a few times and still my dog will shake before delivering at times but this...
