    Quick and simple straight forward answer to your question is about another month maybe two. He's a baby just play and have fun. I wouldn't enforce anything at this point. Sit is ok but not for any...

    As Glen says this is the beginning of FF. When I start the gloved hold I grab the pup by the back of the neck much as mama would if she was moving or relocating the pup. Pretty much all animals in...

    Well I didn't take a picture of it but I did see it once, but only once. Thought it quite strange the a dog would poop a little square turd.

    Now there's a logical explanation and a very legitimate reason for using a HT pro which is what I was looking for on this subject.
    I appreciate the apology and somewhat apologize back. I could have...

    I'm sorry, I'm not really trying to be a smart ass. First question is why the jam = yuck?

    Don't understand, why should I know better? In the beginning I titled a couple master dogs working 60 hours a week from May through Dec. Sorry just my opinion. To me a hunt test title is just not...

    Personally I am surprised at the number of people that will pay a pro to do hunt tests. I don't believe it is necessary to hire a pro to run HT. HT were designed for a guy and his dog and I think...

    All the above but not so many out here. I am reminded almost every time I log into RTF to be extremely thankful that I live where I live.

    I very much agree with this. There is plenty to cram into that little pea brain of his without confusing him with distractions, that can be added later. To steal a quote from another thread "follow...

    My training is extremely literal. No matter what I expect them to do what I tell them. He will get on that point if I tell him to. Being just a two year old it some times takes some convincing. I...

    Yes I believe if I let him go he would have gone around that final point because he has been taught to stay in. As for following the curve of the bank, my fault not the dogs. He did his part by...
