Claudia, I really think you need to slow down a read the posts before you respond. In your second post regarding me your paraphrase was incorrect. Now, you assume, "no previous dog ownership experience and no classes".
Jinx is my first Golden. She is not my first dog, had you taken the time to look, first dog honors go to Rocky, the 14 year old Min Pin who thinks he is a golden. And I sware, I didn't have the determination to train him for obiedience.
I also tried to make it clear that Jinx has attended both Conformation and Obeidence classes. And she will continue in the classes we need to reach our goals.
As for the collar, why this seems to be an issue is a mystery. Yes, in conformation I show in a very fine nylon choke. The CGC did not allow choke collars as part of their rules. A very nice person let me borrow a buckle collar since I did not have one on me.
I am not belittling others who find challenges in training. I have had my share and I am sure I will have more when we get to competing for titles. I already see that working with dumbells will be a chalenge since she wants to carry by the end.
Laura, no I do not look people up. I simply responded to your posts in which you were not clear about training and previous experiences.
But since you mention it, I just did therefore I guess congratulations should also be in order to Jinx's co-owner WildfireGoldens.
I also checked your website Wildfire and I am pleased to see that you do state that while you are doing everything by the book in your breeding it does not guarantee the health.

I am not sure why you feel you have to berate people on the forum. You are not reading posts and making assumptions. I am sorry I did not post a complete synopsis of every waking moment I have share with my wonderful girl. But, if I had, I am sure you would have found more fault with me.
Also interesting is that "you don't look folks up" but then went to the trouble to find my breeders website. It must have been very difficult considering I have a link to it through my k9data link at the bottom of every post. And yes since I do co-own (which is not uncommon for folks like me starting out) my breeder does list my girl and her accomplishments on her site.
I can only guess that you missed the intent of my post again when I mentioned if you looked you would see my Min Pin. He is of course right here in my signature at the bottom of every post I make.
I am not a breeder yet, nor do I have a website yet. I may in the future.
I think at this point it is time to say yes, Claudia you are absolutely right about every thing you ever say. How very silly of me to try to make a nice post praising the great qualities of our breed and share accomplishments that I am proud of. Everyone here should just learn to agree with you. It would be so much easier if no one ever share an opinion other than you. It would be so much better to just sit ideally by as you quote incorrectly and post your assumptions when you can not be bothered to actually read the post you respond to.
I am still not sure why you have gone into attack mode and latched on to me. I do not appreciate it. I also remember in the Puppy Cost thread, you did not like assumptions that were being made about you.

ClaudiaM clearly has her own mission to support BYBs and either through ignorance or insecurity or indifference is unable to grasp the concept of reputable breeding which is illustrated by her continued pride in paying her breeder an extra $100 because she "believed the breeder was worth more than what was charged." This being a breeder who keeps her dogs outside and intentionally bred a bitch at 8 mos whose pedigree and that of the sire woefully lacks clearances. This same breeder has another litter of golden pups on the ground right now; I wonder if it's the underaged mom's second litter. How someone can show continued support for a breeder who shows little regard for the care of her own dogs & further encourage such practices is beyond comprehensible to me--certainly not someone I'd be turning to for advice on how to purchase a pup from a reputable breeder.
As much as she doesn't want her own threads derailed, I would hope that she could grant the same basic courtesy to the OP and let the forum educate those willing to learn.
I think this issue has been beaten to death at this point and the thread has headed seriously off topic, so I'm going to close it. If anyone has any complaints feel free to PM me and I will consider re-opening it.
I will also go on record to say that I have had the pleasure to meet LJack in real life a few times, and know how hard she works with Jinx. None of their accomplishments surprise me at all.
