    Judges are human beings and as such, they can make mistakes. It's good that they were questioned and corrected the call backs for that series. Asking the Marshal to check, in a non-combative manner...

    Is the tail warm and limber or cool to the touch?

    No, I wasn't. The turn around the stake is so that you can slow the dog a bit before you stop him. You are holding the rope behind the stake with gloves on. Also, anytime I have done this, or seen it...

    A couple dozen Hay Bales scattered, some used as hides and others, not, would have solved the problem. -Paul

    I think you'll find that 15 or 20 pounds of ice (2 or 3 bags) in a kiddie pool of Pond water, (which holds about 40 -50 gallons of water) will only get down to 70-75 degrees. It won't be ice water,...

    The Marshal at each stake should be supplied with a LARGE cooler Full of ice for the land marks and land blind so that an overheated dog can be cooled quickly. A kiddie pool full of tepid water will...

    At 18 months, the dog has developed a habit which is not desired. You won't change it easily or quickly, and doing so probably will result in some other unwanted behavior.

    quite a problem

    The Presbyterians called a meeting to decide what to

    The wording is every bird, nowhere does it address only certain birds or flyers only. I think it's very clear, and has been in the regulations as long as I have been judging (since 1994). -Paul

    Section 9, second paragraph, (page 24) suggests that all birds thrown for marks should be shot at. Why else would the regulations state that Judges may require each bird be shot at twice?

    I can think of no good reason to mess with any dog while they're eating.

    Up until very recently, we had multiple dogs, and they were fed in their crates. They had to go into their crates on their...

    What Harry said.

    I prefer to do the first couple of sessions in the dead of night so that the dog learns to associate the command with using it's nose. The dark of night minimizes the use of...

    Was this a single or a memory bird of a multiple mark set up? Standout or retired? There really is no wrong side of a retired mark.
