      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 .

Pointing lab training seminar this weekend with Julie Knutson!

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to give a heads up to anyone interested that Julie Knutson (author of Training the Pointing Labrador)is hosting a two-day pointing lab training seminar for the Minnesota Pointing Lab Club at RJ's Rooster Ranch in Lonsdale this weekend. Julie is one of the top PL trainers in the nation and is coming in from CO to give this seminar.

Additional details can be found on the MN Pointing Lab site. Need not be a member to attend but the price is a little more for non-members. The spots open for attendees to bring their own dogs to use in the seminar is full.

A quick description of whats going to be covered:

Quote:
Sat a.m. Introduction, General discussion (~1-2 hrs), Tool building: obedience, force fetch, collar conditioning. Retrieving if necessary or desired. Whoa conditioning. Tool building will be the first place we get people’s dogs out and use them to illustrate the steps, problems, etc. At the end we can do some marks, blinds if we get the time or have any interest in that. If time allows, people with questions about handling and advanced retriever issues can work on those.

Sunday: revisit all the questions or issues people will have after thinking all night about things. Then we begin start with the little pups and bird intro (if there are any) and go through a series of putting birds out, listening to what that owner’s concerns or problems are, then running the dog, doing whatever is necessary and them coming back and talking about it with the whole audience.

At the end of the upland we can do whatever people want, talk about advanced stuff, run blinds, talk about passing APLA tests, etc. etc.
