      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

I am in the process of locating a lab for a relative of mine and have been speaking with Dokken's and Candlewood. Any customers or information regarding would be appreciated!! Any other input is welcome! We are looking for field trial lines and yellow to be a bit more specific.

I have not spoke with Mary yet. I have a friend that does have a dog from Candlewood. I have spoke with Dokken and I am looking for anyone with any dogs from either of these or information regarding them.

Don't know much about Dokken's dogs. The father in-law had (passed away 4 or so years ago) a male out of Candlewood that was amazing to say the least. He was a son to "Lottie" however (who was a multile NFT champion).

Mary Howley is one of the most knowledgeable Lab breeders in the US when it comes to putting together 2 dogs that will produce great dogs.

However, Mary is also way overpriced in my opinion. Don't be seduced by the name "Candlewood" or I guess Dokken for that matter.

Find a couple of litters that interest you, then start asking your questions to yourself "what do I want out of this pup" and also, to the breeders, "what do these 2 dogs in the breeding bring to the table".

GOOD LUCK!!!

A friend turned me on to this site, where you can check on the various medical conditions and certifications that dogs have. You can type in the dog's name and find out all sorts of stuff. I think it's a great resource for anyone who has ID'd the litter they are considering.

While the pedigree of the parents is important I think a lot of folks overlook the issue of training the dog. I had a friend who had a Dokken dog that was nearly worthless because the owner didn't spend the time to train the dog. The name is only going to get you so far.
