I've read some of your post and know by them you are anxious to get into field trialing. However, if you have a good pup you don't want to do anything to "blow" this pup up. Wait and have patience. Time flies and the pup is getting older everyday. I suggest you go to some field trials and see what the competition will be for when this pups is mature in its running and can be entered and compete.
Once you blow one up, I don't know anything that can be done to undo the damage.
A competitive young dog knows when it is getting beat. That is when they learn to cheat.
