Recommended Posts

Thx for posting this so I can keep up on it. I'll be watching #18 with John Dunn as Badger is from the same liter as my Annie. 

There's several pups from Pheasant Feathers which sired my Annie.

Good luck EVERYONE!

2nd series was a death nell for many dogs. In this series judges don't take'em out they take themselves out either failed retrieve or passed birds are the usual issues 

Looks like the field is down to 49 dogs with 3 series to go.

 

3 Series call backs...https://essft.com/news/2020-nac-3rd-series-callbacks/

How tough is the water test? Was looking over the National Open and noticed a number of dogs where drop on the water series and therefore never made the 5th and last series

The Water Test is very straight forward and simple.

 I personally would be embarrassed and Humiliated if me Dog were to fail, the Water test.

The water test is basically a 40-50 yard swim nothing complicated.  back to back single marks with gunshot.  Dog is line steady.   

 

I had not noticed the difference in number of dogs at water in National Open compared to 5th series.   Wow, 8 dogs were lost at the water.   I will inquire to see what was the issue.   That surprises me.   I have seen some that just were not prepared but 8 of 29 is unusual.

Wow! Talk about lack of Preparation. Goodness Gracious. With entry fees at $250.00 plus travel food and motel. To fail such a simple test and that's all it is it is not even judged it's pass/ fail. Cold weather be Darned, and for those that pass they get to go to most exciting series in the Spaniel game, the 5th series in the National Champs.

I had shared this information with My wife this morning and her reply adroitly was.."well it is the Amatures"!
