Anyone have a video of a dog running a puppy stake at an HRC event. I am new to this and would like to see what's up. Thanks
Bingo! Keep it simple.At our club the puppy stakes is for fun for the owner and pup. Done at headquarters and multiple short retrieves are thrown for the pup and a ribbon at the end of the day.
I have one and maybe two kids that might do it at the spring KVHRC Test...Our puppy stake has been a hand thrown mark or two where the pup runs to it and (hopefully) brings it back. (Or, in the case of my pup, as he was barely 4 months old, tries to eat it....).
I do like the Jr. Handler idea, and may propose it for our fall test, so we can order ribbons. I had never heard of it before our conversation the other day, Chad.
