Was thinking over the weekend , during a AKC hunt test, how the group I started with has evolved. Some have joined other groups, some have developed other hobbies. I responded here on the forum requesting to join a group, myself having nothing to offer not even a junior pass. As the years have rolled by I seen the progression from both dog and handler as basket cases to a true team at a high level. I was wondering how often your training group has changed, and how many go from start to Master level? We were talking about how many hours it takes to put a master title on your dog with testing and training. I think you have to love the sport and the dog, your joy has to come from seeing the partnership develop , random ramblings from a midweek afternoon .Your thoughts?
