    Default Derby

    Anyone run them? What should I expect? Never seen one in person, only videos. Rules to know? Any unwritten ones?

    What kind of derby are you talking about? Young dogs in bird dog field trials?

    Sorry, I'm talking about retriever field trials.

    Don't talk to your dog.
    Hope he runs straight lines.

    Hope he don't catch it before it hits the ground

    I havenít. I missed the ones a few months back and I think we will age out before there is another one local enough.

    Probably saving me $100 anyways. Iíd like to go watch one this spring though.

    Steady, deliver to hand, and run long straight lines. Some marks can be over 100 yards.

    From what I've heard you're lucky if they're 100 yards, more like 200+
