Honky Tonk Attitude popularity rose due to the split in relationship between Scott Miller and Gary Keel.

Re: Do dogs have a sense of Morality

It's takes a frontal lobe for morality and dogs lack that. Often times people begin to put human qualities onto animal's learned behavior. Any behavior can be learned by patterns, repetitive, rhythmic and relational activities, this is true for both animals and humans.

Foot Hunting and Foot training is the only event that aids in developing of a good foot hunting dog. The field trial venue is the activity you and your dog participate in to decide just how good they are at being what you wanted them to be.
