British dogs most certainly don't "suck." I own one closing in on 4K ducks in the blind, 500 points, placements in UK-style events and a consistent MH. There are multiple "british" HRCH/MH's in my neck of the woods. Its all in how they are trained. However, running down the other guy's breeding and training methods to advance your marketing niche DOES suck, when you won't show up and keep score after you run your yapper.
