Dog yelps during a cast in a water blind. Sometimes, but rarely during cast in a land blind.
Dog is about 5 yrs, has 2 Master passes, several Qual Jams and an SH title.
How do you communicate to the dog not to vocalize in mid cast??? How does dog know if you're unhappy with the cast or unhappy with the sound???
Dog takes wonderful casts and carries them on land and in water.
Has anyone had this particular issue and any success with it.
Owner said dog has always done this, but it has not presented a real problem until now. Most judges haven't had a problem with it, but this weekend, he was failed in a Master test in the water blind because of it.
