Re: Need a class for oversize dogs?

I understand people love to debate issue's of any / every kind ... it's human nature ! But the bottom line here is that these registries have set guidelines , They are in black & white and have been in place for several years . Either abide by them or pay the price JMHO . Really seems to bother tho...

Shady tree I was not criticizing you, nor the way you do things. Only points to consider. Sorry if you saw it different

Re: best time to raise a litter

Guys I was just adding some info for the op to consider. Yes I was referring to trialing. To answer shady grove I too can often gun hunt an 8 month old dog. This is where I’ll disagree and no disrespect meant by this but each person has dif likes or tolerance for mistakes. What I call blown up maybe...

Re: looking for rifle

This is an older post but you’re all over imo. A 7mm mag and 35 Whelen have very different characteristics and are best suited for two totally dif things. A 270 and 30/06 are pretty similar but again near neither of your first two calibers. What exactly do you wanna use the gun for is a question you...

Re: best time to raise a litter

Depends what you wanna do w them. If you were gonna trial better late summer/early fall so you get long derbies. Plus in all honesty a dog born in spring is way too young imo to be of any real use come fall. You be looking at training em instead of hunting em the first season or else you might blow ...

Re: best run to catch style. (STUD)

You know I usually don’t agree w the “run to catch” mindset as most guys doo think its all about speed. The fellows here gave great advice about the pressure. A dog should never outrun his nose. The desire in every dog should be to catch no matter the speed. That being said you oughta be more worrie...

Re: Opinions on running dogs

I was a master of hounds for two progressive pack clubs, I’ve judged for them and I judge AKC. I always say you can learn more about dogwork and dogs judging than you ever could just watching your own. Now the ARHA makes you apprentice first before you judge solo. That’s good. You can learn from som...

Opinions on running dogs

This is a response to some of what I read in the most dominating performance thread. Some of it was judge bashing. Now let me say, standing in a gallery and listening or seeing bits doesn’t cover it all. The judges might be right where we aren’t, they could see or not see something. As long as they’...

Re: Need a class for oversize dogs?

Sounds to me like there a lot of oversized dogs where you guys run and you think that’s ok?? A breed standard is a breed standard. Requirements are requirements. To run in a trial you need to meet the requirements. 1- The dog must be a beagle 2-the dog must be registered 3- the dog can’t be fixed 4-...

Re: Epilepsy in beagles

For what it is worth I had a beagle that was having random seizures. Turns out it was his beef based dog food. switched to grain free chicken and vegetables and he never had another seizure. Interesting, I had a dog was seizing once. An old bird dog. For some reason I switched his food to pro plan ...

Re: Training a 12 week old pup

when you start a puppy that early it will bring out the worst in the owner and sometimes the puppy. you start getting impatient, no handle, not doing what you think he needs to do, and so on. to much pressure from the owner on a puppy can sometimes be a bad thing. to many times you hear people talk...

Re: ISO stud dog Eastern PA

Ok I was correct. Check out his “rookies” section pedigrees. There’s Branko in there. All the dogs he runs/keeps are real nice. Heck I put a win on one he got rid of out of the Butterbean dog

Re: ISO stud dog Eastern PA

Gary’s site is giving me probs today so I can’t research all pedigrees. I’m sure a dog or two of his had some Branko blood in back. Maybe that was wrong but call n ask him
