Just walk away. Not worth your time.

And really they are such a tiny minority that they are easy to avoid. Or laugh at. Whichever you prefer.
Agreed! I had someone who is brand new to teaching agility classes (and who has only ever run an Aussie and a Sheltie) tell me that if I wanted to ever put a MACH on a dog I should probably, "put my name on a waiting list for a future Sheltie pup bred by [my trainer]." Then I could "just run with Kimma for fun and have the fast Sheltie to really compete with." UHHHHHHHH NO THANKS.

And of course this was all unsolicited advice given while we were doing a course walk through at a trial, then Kimma goes and Qs with a first place on that course to get her AX title

Thanks meepitsmeagan for the siggy!
