What type of dog would it take to run in the SRS events? I am sure not just any dog . I ask because my girl is way soft at times and dosent do well with pressure. So what do people look for in these dogs? Thanks
Exceptional blind running skills that can cover long and short distances. Ability to handle quickly. Excellent marking skills - ability to run both shorter marks as in a hunt test and longer marks under field trial conditions. Outstanding line manners and steady nerves since there are crowds and cameras. It is not easy but it is not as difficult as some things you might ask your girl to do. Go to an event and watch what is expected and how much of what they do lies on the shoulder of the handler.
