retired marks

  1. AKC Field Trials
    Judges, when do you instruct your throwers to retire and why? For example, throw and then retire soon after the bird hits the ground like at this field trial: Or throw, stand motionless, and wait to retire when the working dog is released for the first mark? Thanks.
  2. AKC Field Trials
    Several years ago we had a Q up here in Alaska where the 2 judges where outside judges. First series was a triple with 2-retired marks. Both retired behind conspicuous holding blinds out in a fairly open field. Is the rulebook requirement to "brush out" holding blinds only for AA stakes?
