    Dave

    I just reviewed this, the videos and the earlier young dog video. I hope you realize by now that you created this problem.

    This is very fixable, although perhaps not with some of the...

    Perhaps the most significant factor is wind. I routinely use stand alones to help teach a dog to fight the push of a cross-wind on a long mark. Since stand alones help a dog go at the bird and not...

    It's totally unnecessary to have a dog completely lose it's marking skills while learning to handle. Yes, it is very common because of the way most train. I see no advantage whatsoever to having it...

    I thought this thread was a little confusing on it's advice re "what's best".

    I use so-called "double-pumping" (not a common term for a re-throw!). I use it for the very long bird, thrown first....

    I cherish my memories of Lanse. They are truly unique. He wrote me a letter of thanks about some things recently because he knew the end was near! That tells you a lot about a man!

    Good scotch should never have pop added and not even ice-perhaps a splash of water to bring it out!

    OK OK- but that's a pup you are trying to teach the sit whistle means stop and look at Dad because something good will happen. It's still a command to stop and not a marker of good behaviour unless...

    Robert and Mary Lynn,

    I don't buy the whistle as a clicker or a marker. It is a command-either to sit or to come in. I don't see how it marks a behaviour or is an antecedent for a good thing.

    YUP!

    If this is Clicker School, the teacher is teaching more bad habits than good. Heck, the dog isn't even in school. I have to be blunt and say I found it painful to watch!

    Sorry!
