Wondering if any of you have some good tips, or training drills to help train for the HRC style hand thrown diversion birds that are thrown from the line ? We have been working this is about 2 times a week for the last couple of weeks, at first she would drop the retrieved bird and veer towards the diversion, we have improved that and now she continues to hold! So were making progress!
She is a high drive dog, and even though I feel that most of the time I think I can call her off of the diversion, I want to "KNOW" she want go for it, so I want to train her right on this.
Any techniques or drills any of you have used to make her bomb proof towards those diversions thrown on line ? She has been doing well with diversion during blind drills, she just seems to really want that diversion bird so bad when that gun is fired and the bird is thrown so close .
