  1. Which leads me back to my original question......

    Which leads me back to my original question... how short is too short? When is a mark simply thrown so short as to be unfair to a dog? Is there such a thing?

    Well, I certainly was not at the test and I am pretty sure who ever made it, did so for their own uses...

    just fun, I would guess... the interest in the throw is mine.... It is quite short... 2 dimmensions and all.

    crazily - it was thrown from a winger... I assume set on the 'upper hooks'.... and in the shade as well... Maybe the 2 dimensional view of the video made it seem shorter than it was in real life......
  5. how short can a 'throw' be, before it isn't?

    watched a video of a master test.... the second mark thrown was so short, that I question whether it could even be considered a 'throw' at all..... It had very little height (maybe 7 feet) and went...

    with 4 straws left - I guess, if it was me, a pedigree I wanted out of a proven producer female.... titles would not matter so much - but whether the female produced well, would?

    My dogs are fine on the truck, so being inside or not is not a problem. I guess for those with indoor dogs, it could be an issue.

    Awesome to hear the responses thus far. I agree with everyone's sentiments about an airbnb being much more comfortable, overall, than a motel.

    that is great! Alaska is a good place for that sort of thing. :)
  10. anyone ever use an airbnb for hunt test/field trial housing?

    Has anyone ever gotten an airbnb for a group to stay at a hunt test or FT? Seems like an extremely affordable way to get housing for 3 or 4 ams with no trailers or big dog trucks....?

    it is a lot of fun to watch handlers freak out when their dog is running, working the trail, but 20 yd away from the trail... downwind, of course.. LOL

    Well, when you consider how realistic our 'marking' tests our (hunt tests)... I guess it comes as no suprise that the quartering aspect is also about as realistic as the bachelorette getting and...

    I would be curious to know how many people choose not to run NAHRA events because of the trail and quartering tests... I have talked to folks about it in the past and they just don't want to deal...

    That is pretty cool to see. I encourage folks in the area to dabble their toes. NAHRA is a really fun testing venue.
