Field Training with Frank and Adrienne
(This page has a 95 second build at 28.8)

With three young dogs to train we formed a Junior Hunter training group. We meet each Saturday at the Prado Dog Training Center in Chino, California. This group consists of Golden Retrievers and Flat-Coated Retrievers, these two breeds train alike. Adrienne and I came from the school that does not train with bumpers so I always bring about 20 live birds with us.

19 week old Java's third time out. He ran down the hill, swan across the channel, then across the road and picked up this very large duck.  We are very impressed with the talent this young boy has.

Frank Holbert and Chase. Funny how the camera makes me look fat. For those of you who where at the '95 FCRSA specialty when the grounds were flooded. The white "X" is where we threw the WCX duck flyer from. It landed in the water about where my shoulder meets the road.
