    Gary my latest remark was a sarcastic one There are many, many ways of training dogs. You learn as you go. A lot of books are about but you will not beat experience. Train your dog to suit both the dog and your own situation. Surely someone up your way can give you advice. Best Wishes Ray A

    That is a good call Craig Perhaps the Assoc will put a brochure out telling us how to best train our dogs in the future Cheers Ray A

  5. More Group success for Ray Adcock

    Thank you Mike but as I said in my speech I was only the Caretaker Trainer. However I considered it an honour to be entrusted with such a good dog. I trust you and Linda are in good health. Cheers Ray Adcock
  6. The Goat

    Why don't you ring up the trainer? Who else can answer your question.?
  7. Southland !

    Surely it would be more prudent for the Club and the "powers that be" to cease racing there in the months of June July and August. Racing in better weather would be helped by the long twilights in Southland . In the warm months it can still be daylight at 10 pm. Travelling to Invercargill in winter has often been risky, especially the frozen hills in the middle of the night. I am of the opinion that winter racing at Invers is a welfare issue for the people and also for the dogs on an unpredictable surface. Ray Adcock
  8. handling dogs

    As with a lot of the rules, they appear reasonable on paper sometimes, but how can they administer them ? As usual consistency cannot be applied unless it is a fulltime job for someone to oversee from the time the trainers arrive at the track till after the last race. Do Board Members not realise parking of our vehicles is not always in the proximity of the kennels. What is the difference in handling a dog before they race, to handling after a race. At Addington often our parking is over 200 metres from the kennels. How can we cope with this rule with late kennelling and 18 minutes between races. It is no use leaving it to "Stewards discretion" it has to be administered across the whole scenario. Those who seek to apply some of these race day conditions have obviously never experienced the tension and responsibility leading up to putting your dog in the boxes. Ray Adcock
  9. Breaking news

    It appears to me that " Common Sense" has prevailed. Something politicians seem to ignore a lot. I hope we New Zealanders take note of the lessons learnt from this saga. Rat Adcock
  10. Slipping the collar

    And people in Stone Houses shouldn't throw Glass. Cheers !!
  11. Remits

    The last time I was in Australia the Richmond track had a squeaker built in to the lure, which activated when the lure moved for both the stir-up and the race. It was great !! Surely it wasn't removed just to appease the "tree=huggers." Ray Adcock

  13. Satisfactory Trials

    Once dogs are officially registered the NZGRA publishes the details on their website. In the past I have noticed that one or two trainers have dogs on there with no owner named. Now the Register for dogs who are approved has been removed from the website in recent times. Wonder why ? Ray Adcock
