Don't sell yourself short...it takes both a good dog AND a good handler to make it work.

Thanks! His next show is in the DC area, tends to have lots of pro handlers for these shows like Zana Friend, Aleta Canady, Nick and Joel, etc. if I can go up against those guys and win it's an accomplishment.
