Don't know what I was thinking, but my Riley will be running JH and WC. She could be great or we could be the entertainment. Either way, can't wait!

I'll be there in WC with Dee Dee and X with Gladys - looking forward to meeting some of you.


(We already have our C and X but I can only go one day on the weekend because of my job timeline so I chose WC/X over JH)
Would love to see the field trial and check out MH and enter in obedience and teams and all that fun stuff.
But alas someone must keep these dogs in the lifestyle they're accustomed to.


Dawn, Dee Dee (L), and Gladys (R)
and Boomer (avatar pic) with us in spirit always

I am going for confirmation as I have a 2 year old dog showing Wednesday afternoon. I saw about the Thursday event from 9a-12p and plan to take him there for his first intro to bumpers and ducks. If I had to guess, he won't care a bit about them.

On the other hand, I was at a meeting for my local golden retriever club and took my 8 month old puppy and he went right after the bumpers and ducks, even with a gun shot. I know this boy will do great in obedience, field, and agility, but I'm clueless about what all the field training entails. If anyone is able to take video of what is involved with some of the titles, I would greatly appreciate it.

If you haven't already, you might want to take a look at White River Golden Retriever Club in your area. Very active club in all venues, great people. They can help you out.

I just joined after being strongly encouraged by my breeder for over a year now. That's where I was able to introduce Taz to the bumpers and ducks and really enjoyed it. I know nothing about all of these titles and would like some info on what each title represents. If someone were there and taking video, it would be easy for me to learn what tasks are completed for each title. Does that makes sense?

Alaska7133 has made great videos of JH and SH. You can send her a message, but she's probably at National for the week.

Here's a link to my YouTube videos. There are a lot of different kinds of field events to view.
