For the thousandth time -- the purpose is to attract more people to the FT sport from the HT roster, and to formally recognize what we already informally acknowledge. It is not just to add another title.Tim Carrion said:This "title" would only serve owner's ego not dogs.
No - I don't think QAA is more difficult.If a MH goes on a title wouldn't you think QAA is more difficult???
Pretty much sums it up for me.Vicki Worthington said:I'm in favor of having people enter the trial game. I'm not in favor of tailoring the trial game to attract a lesser level of competition. The Qual was never intended to be the end--it was and should remain a measure of when you are ready to move up--not a title or marketing tool! It's a pit stop along the way to a real title. It's a measure of what dogs CAN be competitive at the all-age. If you are truly wanting to succeed in field trials, dogs that can't get past the Qualifying either get out or get sold to make room for a dog that can.
