This came up last week during a training session. I've heard two different definitions of primary selection. One is that it is the handler simply choosing the next bird for the dog after the go bird. The other is the handler choosing the bird order for the dog period. Anyway, in the training session, the very experienced trainer and trialer I was training with said the latter definition of primary selection could be of huge benefit in a series with retired guns. The reason being that if the handler so chose, he or she could "No," the dog off the go bird and send him instead for the retired gun thereby making it a stand out gun, at least for that bird. Since the judges cannot stipulate the order of the retrieves, it made me wonder why more handlers wouldn't do this. Any thoughts on this?
