Read a little paragraph in the Field about a dog being tired at a trial 2 or 3 weeks after running the 3 hours at GJ. where are you John Proctor, who if I remember right , won the National and FFA back toback in less than 10 days, and this was 4 hours at the FFA.
Is the 3 hour dog passe'? With the change in the ffa format to one and a half hours, there is only the National Ch at 3 hours. The Continental is 1 hour and 50 minutes now. Many dogs don't finish at grand junction, handlers picking up if they don't feel they aren't in the race. So where is the Big incentive to breed or condition for 3 hours? Plus a dog needs to recover from a 3 hour heat.
