    Gary you need to take into account when making comments of who the top northern trainers are the likes of the class of dog they have access to either dogs that are bought by owners who can afford to out lay the dollars or have the breeding set up to produce litters which gives them a better chance of getting good dogs to train. There are a number of trainers in the north who I view do a excellent job with the type of dog they race. Keeping in mind that a number of them are racing 2nd tier dogs from the 2 biggest breeders in NZ. Gary cant undersatnd how you left the Craiks off your list they have been one if not one of the best trainers in the North for the last 30 odd years. Anyway Gary I fear for the future of the northern region as there are not enough the younger generation taking it on the costs of land etc to set up is just to much and the money is not there to meet comitments. Also the board are making far reaching decesions which will come back and bite them in the ass i.e. import fees which I feel they are being leaned on by outside influences.

    Is this site shut down ?

    Yes a very common sense approach would make life a little bit easier if money had to be spent for the care of the dog.

    Mike good to hear the sport wont be losing Linda and yourself northern greyhounds certainly need numbers to keep it going very concerned with where northern racing is heading. Quality of dogs racing is not great due to the influx of supermarket dogs. Also hear there are 2 other owner trainers are hanging up the leads when their current dogs stop racing.

    Just a sign the dwindling numbers in the game, heading for supermarket type kennls who are slowy pushing out the little guy and passing on dogs getting close to their use by date to other trainers to try to scrap a living together with these type of dogs dont how they do it.
  8. What ever the outcome is of this fiasco The Cole Kennels will still be Dominating North Island Meetings going forward the girls will see to that.

    Looking to get involved

    Go into NZ Greyhound web site and go into the trainers list contact details of local trainers are shown. The northern trainer I would recommend would be Jared Udy.
  10. Minnie not certain if you have been in contact with any greyhound trainer about where to start but I would recomend Janine Mc Cook 0274817915 or Bruce Dann 033027927

    Yes sorry to hear of his passing was always very pleasant the times I had a chat with him when up that way. The code certainly could do with gentlmen like Max at the moment. RIP Max.

    $2000 Import Fee

    Yes Steve the northern region has and will continue to become the dumping ground for the 2 biggest puppy farms here in NZ as trainers require replacement racing stock.Dont expect Cup winners etc they will only be sent north when they are past their best and they dont have the worry about there dispersal.Perhaps they should be charged a fee once the dog leaves their racing kennels to goes towards rehoming.

    $2000 Import Fee

    Has anyone else heard about the suggestion from the board about a $2000 per dog import fee which can be refunded if the dog is returned to Aussie when its racing days
