National Championship, Podcast

Preparing Dogs to Compete in the National Championship ~ Interview with Rich Robertson

Here is the second in the series of interviews I did with trainer/handlers on the topic of preparing dogs for the grueling 3-hour endurance stake…the National Field Trial Championship held on the Ames Plantation in Grand Junction, TN. Thanks to Rich Robertson, Randy Anderson, Robin Gates and Larry Huffman, for generously giving me a few minutes of their time during the 2013 National Championship.

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.
