    Don't be concerned with her not wanting to do things without treats. Keep using them for the next three or four weeks and you'll see her begin to do things for just your praise and petting her.

    I use treats. See Jackie Metens Sound Beginnings. Hillmann and Lardy also reference the use of treats for puppy obedience.

    I agree with O.clarki - they've all had it for me. They all have it in them, it's up to you to bring it out.

    We were training on picking up the short retired (#2) after the go bird, so did not allow any to pick up #1 before #2. We did not have any dogs return to the old fall (#2). If I did have a dog start...

    Yes, I would do that, but would likely retire both 1 and 2 (left outside). I think just retiring #2 would make this test easier. There are really no factors for that left bird in this particular...

    Yes, Mary Lynn, we will set up and run another triple similar to the one we started with, but with a longer go bird. I think the next thing we'll run is a delayed triple where we throw the short...

    We do run that on occasion, but we set this up tight, leaving the long gun visible to make the short retired much tougher.

    Thank you Dennis. The wind direction is accurate on top of the hill, but I think down in the hole we were getting some swirl and was more at our backs as we didn't get any wind saves. :-)

    Yes Mary Lynn. The reason we didn't run the long gun first is because it would require the dog to run tight past a gunner that has not been picked up - inadvertently teaching the dog to ignore the...

    Can anyone explain why a club would open an event for enteies so far in advance?

    Is it because being that far in advance, it won't be on most people's radar?
