All-Age Dogs, All-Age Trials, Tom Davis

Mansion on the Hill

Mansion on the Hill: Do All-Age trials and dogs still matter?

Thanks to acclaimed outdoor writer and Editor-at-Large for Pointing Dog Journal, Tom Davis for writing this 2-part story at my suggestion 🙂 about All-Age dogs. And thanks to PDJ Managing Editor, Jason Smith for taking such an interest in the story. He promised to give me a whopper of a photo credit in Part II 🙂 All the photos are by your humble Strideaway editor.

Part II contains interviews with field trial dog men, Rich Robertson and Frank LaNasa.

Part I (above) appears in the current May/June issue of Pointing Dog Journal.

Part II will appear in the (next) July/August issue.

Subscriptions and Back Issues are available at PDJ Storefront. Single issues are also available at some bookstores. Google it!



Running Dog


Strideaway is an online publication founded in 2008. We are dedicated to promoting the great sport of American pointing dog field trials, in particular American Field sanctioned trials for pointers and setters. Our objective is to present the voices and ideas of experienced trainers, handlers, breeders and other knowledgeable participants and enthusiasts from the past to the present — amateurs and professionals alike. Whether All-Age or Shooting Dog, Horseback or Walking Trials, we place particular emphasis on wild bird field trials and the dogs that compete in them. We present richly illustrated articles and stories, podcast interviews and other types of media on a regular basis with the hope of providing an ever expanding, searchable archive of information relevant to pointing dog field trials.Read article

This website is dedicated to our ever faithful friend, Bill Allen who passed away peacefully and surrounded by his loving family on January 25, 2022 at the age of 96. We will miss him but he left us the greatest of gifts, his wonderful writings in a book we published for the 3rd time in 2021: The Unforgettables and Other True Fables.
