    Yes, but I think the point Mark was making is that they may pick and then 'hunt on' with the dummy in their mouth looking for the other bird?

    Doesn't 'double pumping' just take the dogs attention off the mark on the ground and cause him to look back at the thrower? So, all you are getting is a dog that will run to the thrower and then...

    You can't focus or lock on to more than one mark at a time ;)
    So this set up is for walked up, where you are more likely to get single bird flushes. Once, a second, third or 10th bird is shot the...

    My thoughts on this session/method would be that the dog got rewarded for dropping the dummy at the 'thrower' and just having a sniff around, as he was allowed to do that, he got praise/play when he...

    How can you tell from that distance away from the dog if he is 'locking on' properly or quiet/steady? Does the dog not look from bumper to handler losing his mark? Or do they learn this skill of...

    Can somebody explain to me what the point of 'standalone marks' is? It is not a concept we have in the UK. I can't think of a reason why I would want a dog to sit up remotely/steady from me, mark...

    Simples! ;)

    TBH, that all sounded Chinese to me!! I really need to get to grips with all the lingo/terms. It's a whole new lexicon. :)

    Yes, I tried video right handed and sending dog left handed (which I never do), and I can't throw left handed (can barely throw right handed)!! So, now I'm videoing left handed. Not good. Will...

    I think it can track both. Not sure how?! The new Soloshot3 is not out for a while yet, but I am tempted too. Having tried today to video my pup whilst training at the same time, I realised how...

    Well, I've just had first practise session with video camera and I was hopeless!! I've got loads of short clips, but definitely nothing I want to share with you!!! It's really hard to film and...

    I think we are probably as loose with our terminology as we are with our training structures!!

    Yes, I think it may be a 'walk out blind' - is that where you walk to a location with/without the dog...

    Quality not quantity has always been my mantra. So, maybe I do do a lot less than some folk. But I try to make each session count.

    Seriously though, you would be horrified at the lack of structure and planning that goes into training the dogs here! Take...
