Qualifying - 28 starters - Judges Robert Heise (MN) & Peter Hayes (WI)

Really good Q test! No tricks, straight up, either your dog knew the work or it went home. Land marks were a tight triple (for a Q, not an AA) thrown middle-right-left, including the long land blind, ran up on flyer-side. Water blind was down at an angle off a levee, requiring an angle entry, the levee continued left to a seated white coat, firing a dry shot. Water marks were a genius of bird placement. A triple, again thrown middle-right-left. Middle bird was a down the shore thrown angled back to land in shallow water on the shore. Dogs had to show perseverance, fighting a lot of various kinds of vegetation to get to it. Right bird was thrown from a levee at an angle forward to land in tall pond grass. Dogs that did not mark this well, had their momentum carry them up onto the levee where they put up huge hunts. Similarly dogs that were sucked by the gunner, also carried pass the fall and up onto the levee.

Look, it is just my opinion, and I LOVE Golden Retrievers, but I believe it is unusual to see them step on tough water-marks. Land-marks? Not as unusual.

And as you might guess, I have my own little private theory about it too. I think that by comparison, coat care is tougher in Goldens, so their owners are less inclined to do water work. Will they do water work? Of course. But they are less inclined.

JMHO, of course, and it is just a theory, so it could just be a bunch of hoo-ey. :wink:
