    There are various ways of dealing with the biting. I find the posts I've read on this thread to be all good. My fix for a biting pup is what normally works for me when all else fails. I grab a piece...

    I would use no correction when a dog is starting on blind work. I want the dog to be successful as possible in the beginning, even if I have to walk out to the plant and put his nose on the blind. I...

    If it were me I would like my dog to face directly at me on the whistle sit. I find I get a better cast with the dog in the proper position. I would address that in the dogs yard work where you can...

    If you can do this with your renter home. My solution was to install a doggie door that opened into my fenced back yard. The dogs took about a day to learn how to use it. Mine installed into a...

    Just a tough break for Tubb. I'm sure the judges talked the situation out among themselves and deemed it a fair mark. Not being there I can't be sure if the bird moved on him. I got to give it the...

    I can't believe no one commented. A good job on that blind from what I could see. You were on him in the middle section on the blind right away when he started fading left in the wind. The lower bank...

    I've used this method occasionally, but mostly as a last resort. I don't see anything wrong with it as long as it's not over done.

    Glad to hear Rowdy is getting back to normal. The pad problem might take a bit of time to heel. Perhaps the Cone of Shame is in order. It's hard to keep an active dog calm and quiet. Good luck, you...

    You could look into building your own wingers and buy the electronics. Use the search on RTN for home made wingers. Might save you some money. Either way you go it's well worth the expense IMHO.

    Only possible mistake I saw was you let him get by the short blind. When I run a long blind I will look down the dogs spine to see if they are lined up straight with the head. Rowdy did good job on...

    How stable is the boat you are sending him out of. If it's rocking like most boats do it's possible he's not getting a good platform to launch himself into the water. Ergo he paces back and forth....

    Excellent job on the memory bird. Blinds looked pretty clean to me but couldn't see the dog on blind one, so I don't know if he tried to go back to the old fall or not. It did look like you handled...

    I'm not sure if this would have helped on the blind. I have been told to reheel my dog, walk back from the line and then walk up and reset him at the proper line to the blind.

    X2 probably teething or close to it. I normally work on OB at this time in my pups lives until after the adult K9s come in. If the problem persists go back to the lead. IMHO
