How long is the rope your up and coming pup is dragging....
What length have you found works best for field work until the pup is reliable on come? I'm using a 100 foot 3/8 inch rope and its working out fine....not using that long for any particular reason other than I couldn't bring myself to cut that nice long rope....:razz::razz:.
We're using Smartworks primarily and are good on here unless there's a big distraction like a cat or another dog or a person or a deer or a horse or a well you get the picture. We're working on collar conditioning and are starting heel....sit...heel with a heeling stick. I'm thinking once he's reliable on heel and remote sit and of course here with distractions I'll be able to get rid of the rope.
