for those of us that are little packers but like running in the occasional pp hunt i personally would like for the pp judges to judge my dog not his blood line or his owner. i don't mind putting my hound in the truck if he's running rough thats what the rules are for. just don't like being sent to the truck cause i run another format or my dog is breed from little pack hounds. i'm sure alot of hounds come from both formats. i invite pp trialers to come to a lp hunt, from what i saw at the south regional they would do pretty good.
