    If you have a noisy dog, don't take him unless you know what to do to correct. Best to leave him home!!JMO

    I get the first part of your statement. The 2nd however, please let us all know when you figure out nature so that you can miraculously have a group of ducks show up in front of you to impose the 2nd half of your statement. LOL

    Why would I do that Cory? I was not being rude just making an observation based on what was written and my interpretation of what I read. Dial it back there a bit. You'll shoot your ducks I'm sure of that. People from Michigan always get their birds!!!

    Perhaps you need to re-evaluate your signature....

    My girl whines when I miss and she watches the birds fly off. Sometimes whine when the hunting gets real slow and haven't seen birds in a while. This what you're talking about? How do I prevent it?

    I got a friend has a dog, whines in the duck blind, shuts-up when he puts a bark-collar on him. Is this training? Probably not, but at least he's doing something to keep him quite, so we can enjoy our hunting trip .

    And it could very well be that if he uses it consistently for long enough, the dog will get in tihe habit of staying quiet and he'll be able to go without it in coming years.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    You may have to go to the blind before the season, if you really can't get the noise to happen at home.

    I recently had a handler tell me her dog, who was really noisy in the water, wouldn't make noise on land. Took me about 2 minutes to get her to bark in a land drill (the dog, not the handler). Handler dealt with the issue on land and was supposed to transition that to water. I'm not sure she ever really did though, because I'm not sure the handler really understood the cause and solution beyond doing what she was instructed.

    If you can figure out the cause, you can trigger the behavior in other environments and deal with it by correcting/not rewarding it, and then rewarding quiet.
