    I don't use a heel nick for a refusal at the FTP stage. I'm still teaching at this point so will just try again or simplify and try again. If anything, I'd ear pinch for a refusal if I thought it...

    Yes. I use mark and all cues as Lardy discusses in TRT. At least as close as I can. I had a dog at his advanced workshop that would creep forward every time I said "mark". He told me not to say...

    You need to understand if and why the dog flared before you can develope a remedy. Because it has only happened on multiples, the dog could be pushing off of or flaring the other gun or the old fall....

    No we are not, but the handler has complete control over that situation. If you give 5 casts trying to get a left angle back, and the dog scallops 5 times and gets the bird, who's fault is that? If...

    There is no right or wrong. Use it when you want for whatever reason you want. I thought the op wanted to know when other folks use it. As is evident not all trainers use it in the same manner.

    Professional trainers or amateurs?

    For an aspiring pro, the best way, IMO, would be to go to work for the best trainer that you can. For an amateur, I'd say to put your dog with the best pro that...

    I've seen a shot gun shell attached to a piece of wood with a couple feet of cord. The wood is anchored as described. The duck's bill is stuck into the shell to hold the duck in place.
