    Default AKC? No talking to dog untill released

    If you cant talk to dog at the line untill dog is released can you snap your fingures to get dog to heel after birds are called for

    Maybe once...but I wouldn't rely on that working at a test. Train and don't worry about the shortcuts.

    You can't talk and hands held quietly from when you signal till released.
    Rather than clicking teach dog to move with your dog side foot movement.

    "Simba" Humewood Simba (1999-2014)(my 1st dog)

    .
    Per favore, non mi rompere i coglioni.
    Grazie

    Brings up another question? If you cant snap your fingures, is tapping your leg or scooting your feet aloud.

    You are not allowed to talk, snap, pat, tap, or dance. You can step forward and back but I have had overly anal judges warn against dragging your feet to get the dogs attention...in other words, you are better off standing silent and still...

    In my (HT) opinion, if it's a natural shifting of the feet as you turn to follow the birds with the gun, it's OK. I think we have all seen the 3 ft long foot drag that is not acceptable. Some judges warn, some drop.

    Some would be better off worrying about dog work instead of foot work....

    If your speaking of a derby you can usually get away with a "chicken scratch" here and there......Ive never done that myself.........but just sayin. The AKC rule book is online, google is your friend and mine
