Yes. Use the green box.
Weather it taught a lesson or not is debatable but you didn't feed the beast by letting her get the bird.
Set up the pile as an extension of walking fetch. Work towards the pile in walking fetch fashion and then back away from the pile incrementally until you are 40 yards out.
Thanks for posting Vicky
All training is based on obedience. When the dog is at the line to retrieve the the only command you have given is "sit" so his transgression is disobeying the "sit" command. Start from there.
Conditioned response to known command.
The rule say you can't "show" the birds the stations before the guns go off nor can you talk to your dog before you are released by the judges, but you can move with the guns as they go off and I...
Rest In Peace my friend.
We generally don't start running triples until the dog has been schooled in handling. That gives you a tool to show him what you want.
It's also should be noticed that the heads of the dogs in the photo resemble today's "working dogs" far more than they do today's bench dogs.
Stereotypical of English Gentry, then again all stereotypes have truthful origins.
This brings another question. How does the Hillman "Traffic Cop" work with a young dog that has already been brought along with a Carr based program? Would stand alone lessons be counter to the work...
Don't over think things. When the judge calls your # you are free to send your dog. That means you can send him immediately from where you stand in the blind or you can step out of the blind and go...
The yellows are plenty loud and yes Home Depot and Lowes carry them. I have also never had extraction problems.
At $5/box and available at every Lowes and Home Depot why would anyone buy the more expensive blanks?
I have seen several dogs swallow a dove whole on their 1st intro to hunting them.
Singles in an ABC drill configuration. Maybe a simple blind in a key relationship fashion.
The dog learns that there is a pile in front of the bucket. We use the bucket through pattern blinds, when the pattern blind has been learned we remove the bucket and run the same blind.
You thought right. We use a white bucket
I hope his "friend" is still hospitalized.
Seriously, who thinks this stuff up?
I still would just shoot for the MH. 6 series in a weekend is a cart waiting for a wheel to fall off IMO.
I don't get it either.
That's a step a lot of folks (including pros) skip these days.
Adding to that, it also solidifies FF and further conditions the response to the command. In other words FF isn't complete until walking fetch is done. IMO
