Objective and Purpose:
To promote cooperation and friendship among the breeders and owners of Brittanys and to encourage higher
standards in breeding, training and showing of Brittanys in the field and in the show ring; to discourage the breed
from becoming split into groups of “field dogs” and “show dogs” and to strive to keep it forever a “dual dog”.

Obedience/Agility/Rally
By Carla Simon
DOES MUSCLE MEMORY HELP OR HURT YOUR PERFORMANCE BRITTANY?
Most trainers know that “what you reward gets repeated”. But did you know that whatever your dog does will increase the likelihood that it will happen
again? Whether your realize it or not, each and every time your dog performs a behaviour, it is building muscle memory, that physically changes his brain and
makes it likely that the behaviour will occur again. So the more your dog performs a behaviour (desirable or not), the more strongly it’s ingrained and your dog
will tend to automatically repeat it whenever they encounter the same situation or command. If you set your dog up for successfully performing the behaviour
you want, it will help you. If you allow the dog to fail repeatedly, the more it will hurt your performance in future. This article will explain what muscle memory
is, and then show you how to use it to your advantage for dog sports.
HOW MUSCLE MEMORY AUTOMATES BEHAVIOUR
Cognitive scripts are what your brain uses to automate daily tasks so you can think about more important things. One example is taking a shower. Most
people start with adjusting the temperature, soaping one body part, moving to the next part, apply shampoo then conditioner, dry off, etc. Your brain probably
follows a cognitive script so every time you shower you automatically perform the same set of actions, without consciously registering them. You might
sometimes snap out of it and think “did I already wash my hair?” That’s when you switch off the auto play of the cognitive script to conscious thought.
Similarly, most people use cognitive scripts for
throwing a slam dunk in basketball, swinging
a golf club, tying your shoes, driving home
from work, completing a front cross in agility
or performing heeling footwork in obedience,
without ever understanding how it’s done. Dogs
also use muscle memory to weave, perform
running contacts or 2 on 2 off, to indicate
target odor in nose work. Our brains and nerves
function in similar ways.
MUSCLE MEMORY HARD WIRES THE BRAIN AND
PATHWAYS OF NERVES
When a human throws a ball, his arm
transmits its position though his brain by a
series of nerves in a pathway. Once the brain
detects the arm’s position, it tells his arm to
move higher/lower, left/right and how fast to
move the muscles using a pathway of nerves. An
experienced thrower uses an established path
of nerves. He doesn’t consciously think about
moving his arm 20 inches up or 3 inches left.
Once the first nerve in the throwing pathway
fires, the second nerve automatically fires,
then the third and so on consecutively and he
automatically throws the ball as a result. The
more you repeat the behavior, the stronger the
muscle memory pathway becomes, by forming
more connections and stronger connections.
More consistent, reliable performance is the end
result of successful practices. If you’ve never
thrown a ball, you don’t have muscle memory
and you’ll think a lot about how to throw, with
more inconsistent performance as a result. Only
by many successful repetitions will muscle
memory take over, perhaps even leaving you
with the feeling that you’re “in the zone”.
USING MUSCLE MEMORY TO HELP TEACH YOUR
DOG TO BE A GREAT WEAVER
When you teach your dog to weave, you
should set him up for success by training in a
distraction free environment, with rewards your
dog loves, at a time he is attentive. You can use
guide wires (or channels or Weave-O-Matic) to
show the dog the path to take to weave 4 or
6 poles, then reward. The dog doesn’t need to
guess, since the wires show him the path to
take. When the dog weaves the first time, the
brain and limbs create a “weaving” pathway of
3
connected nerves. When he repeats weaving, the pathway is strengthened. More connections are created by the nerves in the weave pathway and the muscle
memory becomes stronger. The dog doesn’t need to think about “collect to slow down, enter to the right of the first pole no matter where the handler is, move
your left front paw 4 inches to the left and 12 inches beyond the pole, but instead muscle memory automatically takes over. Once the first nerve in the pathway
fires, the second will fire, the third and so on, with the inevitable result of weaving, without conscious thought.
GUIDE WIRES HELP BUILD SUCCESSFUL MUSCLE MEMORY
In comparison, if you use weave guide wires, they show the dog the path he should take through the weaves. The more he repeats the behavior, the more
he strengthens the connected pathway of nerves and the more reliably he will weave. Keep the guides on while you introduce and practice all the scenarios
and handling maneuvers your dog may encounter, including:
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
All possible entry and exit angles
Distance – sends ahead, recalls, lateral distance
Front crosses, rear crosses and switches at the entry and exit
Distractions around weaves
Weave discrimination
Different weave equipment in different locations and environments
Changes of handler speed and path (converging, diverging)
Tunnel very close to the exit (may cause anticipation)
Chute before the weave entry (dog is blind in the chute, then must find entry quickly)
Weaves in short sequences, then entire courses
When you’d bet $50 that your dog will successfully weave in every possible scenario, you will have built strong muscle memory to carry your dog through
to success as you gradually get rid of the guides.
FADE THE GUIDE WIRES
It’s very important to note when your dog performs the weaves for the first time, he does NOT “know how to weave”. Only by repeating weaving many
times WITH guides can he build muscle memory and learn reliable weave behavior. Progress by repeating weaving and rewarding, with the weave guides
on, to ensure successfully building muscle memory for the performance you want. Gradually you can fade out the dog’s reliance on guide wires. Progress by
moving from 2 sets of guide wires to one set at eye level, and then gradually lower the guides by ½ inch per session, while you continue to strengthen muscle
memory. When the guides have been lowered to touch the ground, then you can start removing one wire per session. Remove guides from the idle of the set
first. The entry and exit are the last guides to remove, as most dogs find those the most challenging pieces. Muscle memory should allow him to weave without
conscious thought, unless he is distracted or thinking about other things.
PRACTICING UNDESIRABLE BEHAVIOUR HURTS PERFORMANCE
In the introduction I mentioned that performing undesirable behavior increases the likelihood of undesirable behavior repeating. It’s critically important
when you teach your dog to weave to set him up for successfully building muscle memory by using weave guides (or channels, etc.). If instead you run towards
the weaves and hope your dog works it out, your dog will guess, and perform undesirable behavior. Perhaps he barks, enters after the second pole, and pops
out. You try again. The dog barks, enters after the second pole, and pops out. The dog’s nervous system is now creating a pathway of connected nerves, for
“unsuccessful weaving”. The stronger that muscle memory becomes, eventually when he sees the weaves, he’ll automatically bark, enter pole 2 and pop out.
The more you repeat the behaviour, the more challenges you will face.
Some experts say you can never delete a cognitive script once it’s written. Once the pathway of nerves is connected, the best you can do is to write a new
cognitive script. Even then, in times of stress, dogs (and humans) tend to revert to the previously formed pathway.
Muscle memory explains why it’s easier to train behaviors you want in the first place, rather than retraining once you’ve made the mistake of creating
undesirable behavior.
DEALING WITH UNSUCCESSFUL PERFORMANCE
If your dog fails twice in a row, you need to make the exercise easier. Go back to the last set up when your dog was successful.
If you don’t like an aspect of the dog’s performance, stop and don’t repeat it. Get help and make a plan for setting your dog up for success. Set up the environment where it’s unlikely that the dog will fail.
For example, many handlers reward their dog late and the dog looks back at them anticipating a reward instead of looking forward to the
next obstacle.
If you repeat “weave look back” it will be very hard to correct. Rather than practicing failure, set him up for success by:
·
Placing the reward at the weave exit so he will focus ahead to grab the reward as soon as he’s done weaving.
·
Getting your training partner to throw the reward at the exit
·
Asking your dog to perform a tunnel or jump (whatever he prefers) and deliver the reward after that obstacle so he automatically looks forward.
Always remember that perfect practice makes perfect performance. Simply put, set up your dog for success by breaking down skills into increments where
the dog is highly likely to succeed and unlikely to fail. Repeat successful performance many times to build muscle memory and then consider fading helpful
training tools to challenge the dogs understanding. Whenever your dog fails, you need to make it easier and plan how to set up the environment so the dog
succeeds next time, building the hardwired pathway of connected nerves that create muscle memory, and then strengthen it so that you can rely on successful
performance in future.

make corrections.
Much will depend on
the level of training the other dogs in the group have had as
well. Hunting a well-trained dog with dogs that have little
or no training is difficult at best. If other dogs are flashpointing and then busting birds – or worse yet, blowing past
your dog while it’s on point and flushing the birds – it’s
hard to hold your dog accountable for its training, but it’s
also necessary that you do so.
At that point, put your dog back in the truck. Allowing
your dog to constantly be subjected to out of control dogs
doing all the things your dog is trained not to do is the
quickest way for a seasoned dog to spiral out of control
(even worse for the youngster). It’s a lot like letting your
children play with other children who have no real rules of
behavior; pretty soon, your kids are misbehaving, too.
Hunting with a friend with a trained dog is by far the
better idea, but even then there can be some competitiveness
between the dogs. Make sure to hold your dog accountable
for the level of training it has received. In an honor
situation, make sure that if your dog is the honor dog, it
stays put; and if your dog has the point and the
other dog should break, enforce the steadiness
in your dog.
Taking other hunters and dogs out of
the equation still leaves a lot that can go
wrong. Wild birds are far more exciting
than training birds, whether pigeons or penraised gamebirds. Because we never know
how many there are in a given area, the sheer
numbers (should you be so lucky!) can be
overwhelming. Sometimes even the most
veteran hunter will lose it when 40 pheasants
fly up out of a fencerow at the end of a field,
or a large covey of quail burst from the cover
like popcorn. While situations like that don’t
happen as often as we would like these days,
the can and do occur. The good news from a
training standpoint is that it’s not too likely
It always seems to start this way: You’ve spent the
summer training, and your dog is fit and ready to go. The
first few hunts are wonderful, with your dog working to the
level of the training you’ve done, and you’re busting your
buttons with pride. And then the wheels fall off. Your dog
starts making mistakes. It may be a few minor infractions,
or it may be something big, like breaking and chasing as
you walk in to flush. No matter the reason, it is frustrating
for sure, particularly with the seasoned dog that should
know better (look for an article elsewhere in this issue that
focuses just on “rookie mistakes”). And now, with bird
season in full swing, you’re worried. Will other things fall
apart? Why, all of a sudden, is your dog making mistakes?
It’s important to realize that all dogs make mistakes.
Every single one of them will at some point, and they will
make them throughout their lives. And the really high drive,
ambitious dogs may make more than the average dog, just
by virtue of their over-the-top desire. It can be easy for a
dog to let their instincts override their training, and they
temporarily forget who they work for. So, for starters, don’t
be quick to judge your dog for screwing up, because they
all do it. What we do need to do is evaluate the situation,
figure out the reason for the infraction, and then fix it.
It’s important to recognize that there is no way – in a
training situation – that we can replicate the excitement of
hunting. And it doesn’t take dogs long to figure out when
you’re just training versus the real thing. They will react
to training situations with a calmer, more workmanlike
attitude because it’s just a drill and they know it. Remember
having fire drills in grade school? We knew what there
were and what we had to do. Now imagine the difference
in the excitement level had there been a real fire! At that
6
to happen over and over, so while your dog may be pretty
excited and you may need to give a gentle reminder on the
next find, it shouldn’t cause too much trouble in the long
run.
Another problem that can crop up is dogs wanting to
self-hunt once they’ve found a few birds and excitement
escalates. That is, they want to go off in their own direction,
and you are welcome to follow them if you can keep up.
Again, if you’ve done your homework during the off-season
and your dog understands the e-collar cues, it doesn’t take
too much to get the dog “going with you” again.
Often, this can be headed off altogether by following
the same routine at your hunting spot that you do at home
during training. For us, it’s the chain gang while we’re
getting our gear on, then a short walk on the lead to make
sure the dog is paying attention and acknowledging us
rather than pulling ahead and being distracted. A couple
of minutes of “pay attention to me” time at the start can
save you a lot of frustration as the day goes on. Allowing
a dog to run around loose and on its own right before
we start hunting lets the dog think they are somewhat in
charge of things. As explained by our counterparts in the
rookie-mistakes article, this “free-wheeling,” as they call
it, at the beginning of the hunt is one of the most common
7
mistakes for first timers. But the old dogs aren’t’
immune, either. Many times, they think they know
better anyway.
Retrieving is another thing that can fall apart as
the season progresses. If you’re working with a dog
that is retrieving naturally with no formal training,
some will stay consistent and others will often get so
excited about finding birds that they either drop the
bird halfway to you, or run to it as it falls and then
ignore it if it’s dead, preferring to go find more live
birds rather than retrieving. For these dogs, put a good
trained retrieve, or force-fetch, program on your to-do
list when hunting is done for the season.
For the dog that has been through a formal retrieve
training regimen, be sure to be consistent in your
expectations and uphold the standard to which the
dog has been trained. If you let little things slide, they
can quickly turn into bad habits.
One example of this is the dog that doesn’t hold
the birds until you have your hand on it and give the
release command. Instead, the dog drops the bird
as you reach for it. Stop right there, use the “fetch”
command, and make the dog pick it up and hold it.
To reinforce this, have the dog walk at heel for a few
steps while holding the bird. Stop, reach for the bird,
and take your hand back before you touch it. Make
the dog continue to hold until you reach back again
and have a grip on the bird. Then allow the dog to
release it.
The flip side is a dog that brings you the bird but
doesn’t want to give it up – or worse yet, decides
halfway back that it wants to a snack. Again, a good
trained retrieve program fixes this and gives you the
tools to correct it. But what if you haven’t gotten that
far in your training? For the dog that wants to stop and pull
feathers or munch on the bird, the “here” command is your
best fix. If you can catch the dog as it starts to slow down
on the recall and instead make it come to you faster, it can’t
stop and rip up your bird.
The dog that won’t let go needs to learn that it has no
choice. If the dog is on your left, run your left hand down
the dog’s left shoulder and back to the flank area. Grab the
flap of skin where the hind leg attaches to the belly, and lift
the dog’s hindquarters by that skin. Your dog will drop the
bird, mainly because it wants to bite whatever just pinched
its skin, so watch your hand.
Most of the mid-season problems are easily fixed by
giving your dog gentle reminders and holding it accountable
for the level of training you’ve done. Don’t let little things
slide because you’re in a hurry, since little infractions can
become big ones in a heartbeat. Keep your standards high
and expect no less from your dog. You’ll be rewarded with
a lot better performance on those crisp fall days in the field
with your canine partner.

J: Ed Dixon & Bill Landress
2014 American Brittany Club Western All- Age Futurity
A very special thanks to the veteran judging panel of Bill
Landress and Ed Dixon who gave each and every dog their undistracted
attention, their judgment and results were well received.
Brace 1 Kid and Haley. Kid and Haley blazed the inaugural
trail for the 2014 Western All-Age Futurity class, starting out in the
greasewood flats of the Mojave, over the rock covered hills of Chukar Alley, back into the southern flats and finally back along the eastern edge
of the desert course. A brace of professional handlers had the whistles;
Paul Doiron with Kid and Wayne Downs handling Haley. Kid was the
more forward and focused of the pair, he stayed to the front, responding well for his age and seeking likely objectives. He was rewarded
with two finds in his half hour, he showed great intensity and style and
manners that will likely have him in adult stakes soon. Haley was more
erratic in application but showed improvement as she familiarized with
the grounds. Her prey drive was displayed well when she pursued and
caught a Chukar over the first ridge entering the alley. Kid’s performance
garnered him a well deserved placement in the stake.
Brace 2 Ryan and Ginger. This half brother and sister pair was
amateur handled; Tom White capably piloted Ryan around the course
and Joe Gower blew the whistle for Ginger. Ryan had a reasonably
controlled race and handled very well for Tom. He made some good allage moves but his search on course for game was for naught. However,

A sportsman's
ramblings
by Marty Garrell
“What I Did Last Summer” was always a favorite essay
topic for high school writing classes. As a college teacher I fully
understand the popularity of any assignment that requires little
preparation on the part of instructors and students. Nevertheless,
through the years I’ve begun to mull over that same subject with
a certain amount of remorse. Perhaps the title “What I Did Not
Do Last Summer” is more suitable for mid-August 2010.
a “Yum-Yum” coffee shop, pile into the dog-mobile, and get
onto the grounds when the mercury is still in the 70s and the
scenting conditions for the canines are still pretty good. By nine
a.m. on most mornings, you’re finished.
Of course turning dog-training trips into mini-vacations
makes them fun, too. With (scorching!) afternoons free, we took
trips to local museums and historic sites. Our motel was an easy
ride from Valley Forge, for example, and we got a much better
picture of the turbulent times in which the American Revolution
took place. Just as you have to live in Southold awhile to
appreciate Meigs raid, it helps to have dinner in the former Red
Lion Inn, now McCools restaurant in Quakertown, to understand
Fries rebellion, the bitter protest that grew out of post-war antiBritish, anti-tax sentiment in 1799.
The things I wanted to do were on a list I wrote back in
June: open water swimming, cycle rides, hikes, a bunch of
fishing trips, and, of course, lots of reading and correspondence.
Pretty much all of this went by the boards, so there have to be
excuses. One good excuse: upstate rains through much of the
summer kept the lawns growing right through August. We never
had the luxury of letting the grass brown for three weeks; even
cutting the lawns on a 10-day schedule, the windrows of cut
grass have been ugly. Another excuse: summer teaching proved
more challenging than I’d anticipated, but I needed to develop
fresh notes, whether or not my students appreciated them. And
finally: disconnecting myself completely from voice mail and
those dreaded e-mails from my university proved impossible.
Going on line from remote sites was slow and frustrating, and
getting through the junk in the mailbox was worse than cleaning
out our horse barn twice a day. Also administrative messages
don’t compost.
A look at our calendar tells me I’ll be teaching again in
less than two weeks. With such a short time left, a couple of
approaches to “the rest of the summer” come immediately to
mind. Do we want to cram a lot of stuff into those final days and
turn them into an outdoor whirlwind, or, instead, should we turn
the page on the calendar and assemble gear for the fall ahead?
The shotguns need checking, the boots need a good cleanup,
and much of our surf gear has gone untouched since it was put
away. There are lures to be put in surf bags, reels to be oiled and
rod wraps to check. Hopefully the old hip boots and chest-high
waders have neither pinholes nor leaky seams!
Dog training took up much of the summer, too. We’ve always
had pointing dogs (Brittanys) but never so many competitive
dogs all at the same time. With a couple of older dogs competing
for their championships and a couple of promising pups needing
training for fall field trials, our field season, for the very first
time, never paused in the summer. We wound up joining a
club with great facilities, including pens of bobwhite quail for
release, manicured grounds with long grassy edges to help the
dogs run directly to the front, and a fleet of four-wheelers to
ride. In addition, getting the dogs into shape for the season ahead
we got lots of tips from professional and amateur trainers who
worked their pointers and setters, viszlas and brits at the same
time. The situation was ideal for us, the summer membership
fee was quite reasonable, but there was one huge problem. The
club was 420 miles away in lower Bucks County in southeastern
Pennsylvania! We made six trips, five days each including
travel, and effectively carved at more than a month out of the
summer.
Probably the latter approach is the best one. Naturally that
means making lists of repairs and gear for the autumn season.
First of all, without even looking remorsefully at the old summer
list, we’ll tear it in little pieces and discard it!
[email protected]
Naturally, summer temperatures in the mid-Atlantic region
also present challenges. If someone had told us decades ago that
we could run dogs in a location that featured daily highs in the
90s, we’d have told them they were absolutely crazy. Still, you
do what you have to do in the outdoors. If you need to start the
day before dawn you grab coffee and homemade doughnuts in

May 16, 2015
Our Specialty was held on a cool, early morning at the Prince William Co.
Fairgrounds. The amply sized ring was located in a roofed pavilion, open to
the breeze on three sides. Song birds in the rafters frequently drew the dogs'
attention, especially the youngsters. Kudos to Julie & Mike Lee for providing
breakfast for all exhibitors. Many thanks to the NVBC members who sponsored
trophies at the Specialty and the Supported entry shows. The BOB and BOS
trophies were hand crafted, inlaid wooden tack boxes made by Paul Drazek.
Our judge remarked how beautiful they were, saying she would use one as a
jewelry box. Thank you to Barb Bice for helping present the trophies. Thanks to
Susie Osmansky for ring maintenance and recording results. Laurie O'Donnell
took great photos, which she posted on the NVBC website.
Sweepstakes Judge Ann H. Roth was pleased to be shown such fine young
dogs and selected the male Brigadier's Major Impact On Shamrock as BISS and
Keili's Blue Sapphire Hot August Night as BOSS. Ann watched as much of the
regular judging on Saturday and Sunday as her judging schedule allowed.
We were fortunate to have Bonnie Linnell Clarke judge the regular classes
and Best of Breed. Her pleasant interaction with each exhibitor and gentle
manner with the dogs made for a positive experience. She awarded BOB to
GCH MACH Brookewood's Just Too Hot CDX RE MXS MJS XF T2B, who went on
to a Group 1 and Reserve BIS. Her choice for BOS went to GCH Get A Bird All In
One Miracle. Ms. Clarke crossed over the 3 point major in bitches, awarding WD
and BW to Brigadier's Major Impact On Shamrock. RWD went to Britt Haven's
International Scout. Twoemz A Girl Like Me was awarded the major as WB, with
RWB going to Brigadier's Twilight Princess From Shamrock. Select Dog went
to CH Triumphant's Chances Are. Best Field Trial Dog went to GCH BRB RKJ
Jimmy’s All Readi Made His Point.

May 24, 2015
The California Brittany Club’s annual specialty show was held on Sunday,
May 24 in conjunction with the Mission Circuit at the Los Angeles County
Fairplex in Pomona, CA. It was typical Southern California May-gray weather…
foggy, cool and gray in the morning with a touch of sunshine in the afternoon.
Thanks to our trophy chair, Sue Richards, our trophies received many accolades
from folks passing by. Personalized satchels with the winners’ pictures to be
hand painted on were presented to our Best of Breed, Best of Opposite and
Best of Winners. Baskets of colorful leads, dog bowls and, of course, toys
rounded out the beautiful presentation of trophies. Nancy Reardon assisted
the ring steward to be certain the correct trophies were handed out at the right
time. The exhibitors enjoyed the traditional and delicious ringside hospitality
that Leah Schirokoff generously brought. Donuts…yeah, Leah!
Our Sweep’s judge, Pam Lambie, showed her experience as she judged all
puppies and veterans. In puppy sweeps, she selected Caliah’s Moonlight Falls
On Moses for Best Of Sweeps and Whisper Ridge Be Still My Heart for Best of
Opposite Sex. She awarded Best Veteran in Sweepstakes to GCH DC Sanbar
Castle Built On Legends JH and Veteran Sweepstakes Best of Opposite to CH
Lone Oak’s Sovereign Delta JH. She thoroughly enjoyed all of the youngsters
and oldsters.
Our regular classes were judged by Dr. Daniel Dowling. He enjoyed our breed
and, in Southern California, found many of the typie brittanys he looks for. He
pointed to Sanbar Man Of The Hour owned by Bob and Carolyn West and Polly
West for Winners Dog and to Camelot’s Labyrinth N Illusion Magie for Winners

NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND
Cumberland, ME
June 21, 2015
The fourth day of the Chickadee Classic in Cumberland, Maine, dawned
with pouring rain. It did not discourage the 59 entries from all over the country
competing in the Northern New England Brittany Club Designated Specialty
Show, which was the last day of the ABC Summer Specialty events. Raingear
was necessary for handlers as waterfalls fell off the tent but the dogs looked
great despite getting wet! It was not unusual to see pups in the Sweepstakes
puddle-jumping, but they still showed off to Judge Kevin Flynn who was
impressed by Magicbrit-Tonan Hope Lighting Thief, from New York, for Best in
Sweepstakes. He chose New Hampshire representative, Jaci’s I Want Proof, for
Best of Opposite.
GCH/DC Triumphant’s Absolut’ On Ice (New Hampshire) got a welldeserved round of applause for Best in Veteran Sweepstakes as did CH Rao
Tonan Midnight Madness (New York) for Best of Opposite proving a mature Britt
still has the right stuff!
Regular judging was turned over to Mrs. Betsy Horn Humber. She caused
a major sensation with the Main contingent as she awarded the 5 point major
and Best of Winners to Julie Harris and her youngster J & A’s Heart of Sumas.
Reserve also stayed in New England with Horizon’s Prince Charming, owned by
William Dub of Massachusetts.
The Vermont entry owned by the Massie’s, Sippewissett’s Stella Cruise,
took the 5 points for Winners Bitch with Reserve going to Twoemz A Girl Like
Me, hailing from Pennsylvania.
After a lunch break, the rain let up in time to let the specials shine! The
double-sized ring was filled with the best of the best from coast to coast as they
paraded for Best in Specialty. That title ad Group 3 went to GCH Triumphant’s
Chances Are, proudly breeder/owner handled by Kristyn McCartney of Florida.

REGULAR CLASSES
Judge: Mrs. Betsy Horn Humer
was chosen as Best of Opposite.
Select dog was GCH Dogwood Hollow Bengal Zero Zero, also from New
York, and Select Bitch was CH Horizon’s Finding Neverland from Maine.
Awards of Merit were presented to GCH Triumphant’s As Good As It Gets
JH, New Hampshire, and GCH Sanbar’s Ride the Winds, California, and from the
Veteran class, GCH Tonan-Rao Halfmoon’s Nite Mist, Pennsylvania.
Despite the weather, camaraderie and competition went hand in hand for a
fine day. It was wonderful to see old friends and welcome new ones to our neck
of the woods. The success of this show goes to a small core of dedicated club
members and my thanks go to Peggy Aguiar, Linda McCartney-Roy, Priscilla
Thibodeau, Art Hembrough, and Patty Godbout. It wouldn’t have happened
without their efforts! Also, my appreciation to Ann Short, CMBC, for working out
the details for the weekend. Thank you to all who traveled from near and far to
support this event. Hope to see you all “down the road a’piece.” Ay-Yuh!

HELP!!!
…for the Field Trial Reporter
By Ruth Lee
1 . Your Report should be typed (double or triple-spaced) on regular size paper (8 ½ x 11) allowing at least 1” margins
on either side. Condense the wording to not more than 3 typed pages or you’ll be edited. (See Details on Magazine Policy
AB-February, 1977). Remember the fewer words can result in more pictures.
2 . Your chief concern is to report your club’s trial so effectively that anyone not present can visualize what went on.
Particularly stress dog action. The work of four-footed characters takes precedence over the antics of two-legged people.
3. First Paragraph—Cover such details as where and when, weather, and what not. Anything out of the ordinary? This is
where you can use some imaginative writing if you wish (see p.44 of AB – April ’77 Ozark trial).
4. Report on the winning dogs’ work in each stake, taking up one stake at a time. Even if you did follow it all yourself, riding
in the gallery, it is best to get the “official” interpretation from the judges. Generally, judges take notes and can answer a
reporter’s questions later at the conclusion of the stake. You may wish to condense or even eliminate what the 2nd, 3rd,
and 4th-placed dogs did (all contained in summary anyhow). But if the judges mentioned any others deserving “honorable
mention”… include their names. Sometimes just a mention is a matter of life or death. An owner may be wavering about
continuing to campaign.
5. Concluding Paragraph—Work in the whatever “bouquets” should be thrown to the people responsible for the smooth
running of the trial, but don’t go overboard. Generally, umbrella phrases are better than naming names. No hurt feelings
if you inadvertently miss someone.
The AB Magazine is being read by Brittany owners throughout the country, many of whom may never have been to a
trial. If your report piques interest to attend next time, you’ve done a good public relations job for your Club. Your report may
activate a potentially good member!
6. Stop—when you’ve said it all. When you’ve spelled out what the dogs did. Some photos (line-up of winners) mean more
to most people than mere words. So deputize the photography assignment to a fellow Club member who can be depended
on to get those photos. And…Good Luck!!!

Luke
lived until he was 15 years
old and produced many
field champions, some of
which have produced Dual
Champions. He is one of only
three 8th generation Dual
Champions and the other two
are his half sisters. He is a
hard charging biddable dog
and we are happy to have had
the opportunity to use him
in our quest for the true dual

None Held Back and Other Bird Dog Stories
Part Four -Good and Evil
By Tom Word
Hilltop Hal
The pointer Hilltop Hal was the darling of the field trial
major circuit. Darling of his owner, the New York Financier
Ambrose Bains. Darling of opposing owners, handlers and
scouts. Anything but darling to his handler, the graying Alabama
pro Bo Bradley. To Bradley, Hal was the devil incarnate, the
most irksome canine ever to enter his kennel.
It had not always been so. The handsome Hal had been
Derby of the Year. In his first adult season he had come close to
winning important stakes, but each time he had disappeared in
the waning moments of his heat. Now, well into his second adult
season, the pattern seemed indelible. Hal would begin with
promise, find birds quickly, point them with style and manners
and slash on for two more finds. And then he would vanish. In
the next few hours or days, he would show up on the porch of
some sharecropper, chewing a ham bone or playing with the
kids, always five miles or more from his point of departure.
Hal had been bred by the union Springs veterinarian Bill
Clark, better known as the Puppy King, perhaps the only man
in the field-trial game not rendered less solvent by it. Doc Clark
had a system, and he did not vary from it. In a modest kennel
behind his veterinary clinic, he raised a half dozen litters a year,
sired by stud dogs he judged the best available, from brood
matrons chosen for soundness of body and mind. Pups were
sold at weaning, or after running loose a year on farms, their
room and board bartered by Doc for his services to the farmers’
mules and milk cows. Doc never paid a vet bill or a training
fee, and thus he profited where others lost their shirts. Stud
services also came by barter, with only one exception: he had
paid Ambrose Bains $600 for a service from Hilltop Hal, and the
litter was due in January. Doc Clark was riding in the gallery
when Hilltop Hal ran off for the tenth time in a row in the Lee
County Open All-Age stake.
“Bo, could I come watch Hal in a workout?” Doc asked.
“Sure,” said Bo, near tears in his frustration, “but he won’t
run off in a workout. Handles like a glove ‘til he see a field-trial
gallery.”
They arranged to meet at Sehoy Plantation where Bo
sometimes worked his string with the famous plantation’s
resident trainer. On a balmy December afternoon, the handlers
turned loose Hal and Sehoy Sam, the plantation’s current brag
dog, for a jaunt through the quail-laden piney woods. For an
hour the two pointers traded finds; Hal showed no signs of
bolting, just as Bo had predicted. Half way through the hour,
Doc Clark figured out why Hal was disappearing in trials. He
spent the second half of the hour plotting how best to profit
from his detective work.
“Thanks, boys. I enjoyed that. Good an hour as I’ve seen
since Sehoy Sultan won the Continental,” Doc said as he left the
two old pros washing down the lathered horses and headed for
his clinic in Union Springs.
“Mr. Bains’ office,” answered the snooty secretary. She put
51
Doc straight through to Ambrose Bains when she recognized
the Alabama drawl and heard him say, “It’s about bird dogs,
Mam.”
“Hello, Doc. How are things in Union Springs?” came
Bains’s Harvard-accented voice over the wire. Doc could hear
shouts from the trading room in the background.
“Just fine, Ambrose. Watched your Hal find five coveys this
afternoon, not a bobble.”
“Did he…finish?” Bains asked.
“Sure he finished. No sign he wanted to run off…it was a
workout, of course, over at Sehoy. When you comin’ down?”
“I plan to come next week for the U.S. Trials.”
“Well, when you get here come see me. I think I know what’s
causin’ Hal to bolt.”
Doc said it ever so casually, then waited for the effect. He
could picture the tycoon at his desk, trying to process this
bombshell.
For months Bains had been obsessed with Hal’s problem.
He loved the dog as much as he loved his money and deals…
well almost as much. He’d gloated on the compliments during
Hal’s sensational derby season. But for the last year and a half,
the telephone call from Bo Bradley after each trial had brought
the same message: “He run off after his third find.” Bradley
had wanted to give up on Hal, but Bains had said, “No, he’ll get
over it…just keep working him, enter him every chance you get,
don’t worry about the entry fees.”
Finally, Bains spoke into the phone.
“I’ll see you first thing on the fifteenth at your office.”
Ambrose Bains had never ended up on the short side of a
bargain on Wall Street. But in the world of bird dogs, he knew
he was no match for Doc Clark. He’d bought many a puppy
from the veterinarian, and he couldn’t say he’d ever been
cheated, but he knew he’d always paid top prices. It made him
uncomfortable to deal with Doc Clark. The son of penhooker—a
cattle trader who lived by his trading wits—Doc enjoyed nothing
so much as picking the pockets of the rich Yankees who came to
Union Springs in winter to shot quail. And yet it wasn’t picking
pockets really, it was just getting value for his excellent pups, a
hard thing to do from Southern buyers.
When Doc drove home from his clinic on the evening of the
fourteenth of December, he saw Ambrose Bains’ private jet on
the airstrip. Next morning at 8:30, Bains arrived at the clinic.
Doc walked him through the treatment room, with its strong
smells of disinfectant and liniments, to his tiny office in back.
Its cinder-block walls were covered to the ceiling with photos of
bird dogs, the desk cluttered with medical texts. Doc cleared a
stack of pedigrees from the guest chair and motioned Bains to
take a seat, then sat behind the desk and began to load his pipe.
The sound of barking patients filed the office like background
music. From behind his pipe, Doc studied Bains’ expression:
wary, impatient, nervous. Doc drew out the loading, tamping
and lighting for four minutes, then finally spoke.
“How is Mrs. Bains?” he asked.
Bains replied she was fine.
Doc moved the conversation to the entries at the U.S. Trials,
to be drawn at Sedgefields Plantation on Sunday night. Finally
Bains could stand it no longer.
“Doc, let’s have it. What’s Hal’s problem?...I know it’s going
to cost me to find out…name your price.”
“Why Ambrose, you know I wouldn’t ask money to tell a
man what’ the problem with a bird dog…a nonmedical problem,
that is. I’m going to tell you exactly what Hal’s problem is and
how to solve it, and I’m not going to ask for a thing for myself in
return.
“Well, tell me!” blurted Bains.
“In good time, Ambrose. Don’t be so impatient.”
Ambrose Bains now sensed that the secret of Hal’s bolting
and its cure would cost him dearly. But he steeled himself
against his own impatience and turned the conversation to a
neutral subject.
“Got any pups coming along?”
“A few,” Doc said and walked the financier out to the
kennels where three litters were busy nursing. A fourth brood
matron was heavy in whelp. “She’s carrying your Hal’s pups.
I’ve X-rayed her—she’s going to have eight.”
After appropriate expressions of admiration for the pups,
they returned to the little office, where Doc repeated the pipeloading ritual. That accomplished, Doc said:
“Now let’s talk about Hal. What’s the secret worth to
you?”
But you just said you wouldn’t charge for that!”
“That’s right, Ambrose. But I might condition telling you the
secret on our agreement on another—very fair—transaction.
How would you like to own that litter of Fancy Lady’s pups
sired by your Hal that’s due in January?”
“How much?”
“A thousand each.”
“That’s highway robbery.”
“I don’t think so,” said Doc, “considering you charged me
$600 for the stud fee. Bains knew $600 had been steep for a
breeding to a dog with no wins since his derby season, a dog now
notorious as a run-off. Yet Doc Clark had not protested. Bains
now realized the old vet had been lying in wait for him like a
highwayman.
“All right. Now tell me what’s making Hal run off.”
“First, let’s see your check for $8,000,” Doc said in a teasing
voice. Reluctantly, Bains wrote the check and passed it across
the desk.
Doc took three Jefferson cups (puppy-stakes trophies) from
the window ledge and lined them up on the desk under Bains’s
nose.
“The secret of Hal’s running off, and the cure, is under two
of these cups. Which one do you want to lift first?”
The financier reached for the cup farthest to his left. Before
he could lift it, Doc clamped his hand on top.
“That will cost you $100…for the treasury of the Dixie
Puppy Classic, of course.”
Bains forked over a $100 bill and lifted the cup—nothing.
Like a carnival man running the shell game, Doc moved the
cups around.
“Want another choice?”
52
Bains handed over a second $100 bill and lifted the middle
cup—again, nothing. Totally frustrated, Bains threw $500 on
the desk.
“That’s to lift all three at once.”
“Be my guest,” Doc said, his expression deadpan.
Under one cup lay a 12-gauge shotgun shell, and under
another a 20-gauge. Bains looked at Doc Clark in puzzlement.
“That’s your clues to the cause and the cure,” Doc said.
“I don’t get it,” Bains said.
Doc leaned back in his swivel chair.
“I’ll tell you, but you’ve got to promise…to handle the cure
exactly as I say, OK?”
“Yes,” said Bains, sure this meant another hit at his wallet.
“Bo Bradley is hard of hearing, like every son of Alabama
who’s trained bird dogs for a living. So many shots have been
fired around his hairy ears, he can’t tell the sound of a cap gun
from a howitzer. He shoots over his dogs in trials with that old
Remington ’97 twelve-gauge pump. It’s loose, and it sounds like
a cannon.”
“Your Hal’s not gun shy, but after Bo shoots over his head
three times, his ears are ringing, and he doesn’t want to hear
that boom again. So he takes off.”
“Are you sure that’s it?” asked Bains, incredulous.
“Yep,” said Doc. “Hal never runs off in workouts, ‘cause Bo
shoots a .22 blank for his points in workouts. All you’ve got to
do is give Bo a 20 gauge to shoot in trials—that little Parker you
usually shoot.”
“That gun’s worth $10,000. I’ll give him a single shot
twenty—that’s all he needs.”
“No—remember you agree to handle the cure exactly like I
prescribed,” said Doc.
That afternoon Ambrose Bains reluctantly presented Bo
Bradley with the Parker from his collection of fine shotguns and
confiscated the Model ’97. (Bo Bradley’s son helped with the
shooting partied at Bains’s Hilltop Plantation, and Doc had seen
the boy admire the Parker when he lifted it from the shooting
wagon for Bains to carry to a point.)
Hilltop Hal was never again out of judgement.

MEMBERS OF THE
AMERICAN BRITTANY CLUB
Give the gift of a new membership… to give the opportunity­
to someone to learn about and participate in the American Brittany Club.
This membership campaign is really quite simple, we are asking every member­ to donate/sponsor a membership in the American Brittany Club. This “gifted”
membership might be to a puppy purchaser, or a friend/acquaintance who has a Brittany. All of us encounter people who may just need a little encouragement to
become members­.
This can work, but it is totally dependent upon your support. Please use the ABC application form in the back of the magazine to enroll a new member today.
You may donate/sponsor multiple new memberships. The names of new members & ABC sponsors will be published in the magazine on a quarterly basis.
THIS IS OUR CHANCE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

American Brittany Club Membership Application
The American Brittany Club, Inc. is a
member club of the American Kennel Club and
is the recognized breed sponsor by the American
Field.
The Club is composed of many Regional Clubs
located from coast to coast. Most hold a licensed
AKC field trial for championship points in the spring and fall
seasons. Many hold a specialty (conformation) show and hunting
tests. The Regional Clubs hold meetings to discuss mutual
problems, fun trials, training sessions and other events of
interest to their members.
BECOMING A MEMBER: Full membership in one of the Regional
Clubs carries an automatic membership in the American Brittany
Club and will entitle you to the monthly magazine, The American
Brittany. Associate Membership is available if person is a Full
member of a Regional Club or immediate family member of a Full
member. Full Membership cost is $30.00 per year and $3.00 per
year for each Associate Member. Regional Clubs may charge
higher dues. You may apply to join the Regional Club located
nearest to you, or if there is none in your area, you may become a Member-at-Large of the American Brittany Club. Joining a Regional
Club will afford you with the most opportunities for interaction with
other Brittany owners.
GIVE A GIFT MEMBERSHIP: We are asking members to give a
gift membership to a puppy purchaser, a friend or acquaintance
who has a Brittany. All of us encounter people who may just need
a little encouragement to become members.
