That is so cool! You've trained other dogs in field (and other areas too) right? How long have you been training dogs in field? How did you get started? How did you get support? I really want to train my girl, myself. It's such slow going though. Part of it is, I don't know if I can do the 'force fetch'. If I can't pinch my girl's ear and make her yelp, I sure as heck won't make someone else do it. If that makes sense. Finding someone to throw the bumpers for me is difficult too. No one around me does field. I can sometimes bribe my son. You are an inspiration though. I've given some serious thought to sending Bella off with a trusted/respected trainer, but truly would prefer to accomplish it myself. I look forward to hearing about your journey.

Slater is such a sweet boy, I'm glad he's done so well for you... I would also love to hear some tips on getting started in hunt tests. I've got the contact info for my local hunt club but looking at the photos on the site, it's almost all Lab people (will they look down their nose at my golden puppy?) although there is also a standard poodle in the group, so maybe they are open and friendly I'd really love to find a mentor, I had someone who helped me with my first Golden and it was a lot of fun even though we never went very far with it.

I live in the Carolinas, so there have to be people here, I just need to find them.... also, my awesome breeder will give my puppy a good start, we will do puppy class but I'm wondering how old she should be when we start with a hunt club?

Warm congratulations Anney -- well earned and well deserved. You're one of the best people in the sport -- er -- actually any dog sport. Love the big adorable happy grin and thanks for the inspiration.
