7 HRCH champs on how many GSP'S run/test in HRC? Compared to how many retrievers run in HRC? Sounds like they do have exceptional eyesight to mark other wise there would not be any. So eyesight you refer to is incorrect, the training or lack of it in very few GSP'S even run or train for HRC. If you refer to them as a Leatherman why are their 7 dogs which can meet the standard as a tool used for just that? It maybe besides the few GSP'S that run in HRC compared to retrievers, that bias and abusive bullying and unfairly judging because of breed bias or discrimination. I for one decided not to test when entered in a fun hunt. Not only did I get chatised, and fowl language but my dogs health was jeopardized. She ran the water perfectly in finished leved, moved to land and she did not want to pick up a pigeon, she picked it up and dropped, had to give her a second command. When she brought it to me, it reeked of kerosene, which I presented to the judge. They did give me the pass it was a fun hunt, but with such unsportsmanlike behavior, I did not pursue competing. I continued to train at my home club and help others along with helping on test days. This maybe why you only have 7 HRCH GSP's if they treated other individuals and especially their dogs like they did myself.
