    what would it be?

    HRC Grand
    AKC Master Nat'l
    SRS qualifier and the Crown Ch (since they go together)
    WRC World Retriever Championships

    If you were a pro and had a couple of clients with dogs that had the talent to compete at these levels which EVENT would you tell your client(s) to enter.
    Due to training fees and bird costs plus motel rooms and the high high price of fuel You and your clients have choosen to go to ONLY one. What would it be?

    I am tossed between the SRS and the Grand (mainly due to the location of both events this spring)

    I would have to say either the SRS or WRC only because those events are televised and potential clients would have the oppurtunity to actually see the dog work and decided whether or not that is what they are looking for in a breeding.

    Grand. Shows if the dog is one of the top hunting dogs or not.

    I would have to say Grand also...for the same reason...To me it appears to be more like real hunting..

    WRC...Go for winning the money instead of spending the money.

    If a Pro takes a do to the WRC who pays the entrance fee.

    Another ? if a Pro takes a clients dog to the WRC and wins who keeps the prize money?

    First, the dog has to be titled either a MH or a HRCH or a FC to enter.

    First choice would be SRS and then WRC.

    If a Pro enters the dog for the owner, the owner pays and receives the prizes unless they and the Pro have another agreement on the prizes.
