    Default How Does The SRS Rank As Far As

    the title rankings go? I notice the ranking of the NFC NAFC FC AFC etc. on the board recently & was wondering how the SRS testing would rank among these.

    I know they do not give you a FC at front or MH at the end, but does being the SRS Crown Champ mean anything other than CASH?

    They seem to be putting some tuff test on.

    Would definitely mean something to me.

    I think the SRS is showing you who the most versatile dogs are with the way they mix up their series between field trial and hunt test setups. Not to mention all the different things they do with remote sends and things of that nature.

    Yeah, I have been to a few & it is exactly what you are saying. I like it. Not to mention the advertisement the Pro's get by winning it. They got to love that. The upcoming trainers can become big quick just thanks to TV.
    Looking at it from a business view, you would think it would just get bigger. The dog view I like it too. I would like to try it. If I can get my dog there. It would take years to get a dog ready for that kind of testing.
    Would like to know I had the dog that finished those test as a Crown Champ

    I do understand too that a NFC is a

    It's a made for TV infomercial, no more or less. And, SRS is not a title even remotely close to NFC.

    Two more of those "my game is the only game" guys huh? Real intelligent.

    BTW, R Little, who said that a SRS title was comparable to a NFC? I musta missed that.....

    Someone wanted to know how they compared. R Little gave his opinion which is about the same as mine.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    Not arguing, just stating my opinion. Which obviously hit a little too close to home for a couple of you.

    Isn't Srs And Bdc Kinda Like Nascar, Sponsor Driven? But Who Cares? It's Huntin' Dogs On Tv! I Would Like To Know If Srs Caved To Public Opinion And Use The Avery Atb And Dokkens Before That Over "real" Birds Or If That Too Is Sponsor Driven? I Only Say That Because If It Isn't Because Of Sponsors, I'm Surprised That The Other Field Trial And Hunt Test Clubs Haven't Been Leaned On By The Animal Rights Yahoos Since The Tv Trials Do.

    From what I've seen, a lot of the marks are kinda chicken S***. I have seen a couple meaty marks, but nothing compared to what it takes to become an FC AFC NFC NAFC. I still find it to be a pretty cool game. I can't say that it has any credibility to me in a pedigree, but I've never ran one nor watched one. Having run trials, and hunt tests I can specifically enjoy and value the significance each has. From the looks its all the way from a Started retriever mark if not less up to some qualifying marks. I havenn't see a solid AA test on tv though.
