I attempted to run my first hunt test with my two dogs one 2.5 yrs old in the senior and the other 20 months old in the junior. My senior dog nailed both marks and retrieved the blind with three casts. On the honor he broke on the shot flyer. He has never done this to me before in training. Always solid as a rock. I realize training is a whole different ball game as in an actual test. He was trained by a pro before I bought him a couple of months ago and the dog has had some test experiences, I spoke with my trainer and he thought the dog was what he called test wise. My question is how do I keep this from happening again in the future or any training suggestions to break him of this behavior? In training we do test situations with wingers, thrown birds, duck calls, starter pistols, and with dead birds normally ducks. I might add that at the test both my dogs were extremely excited with all the stuff going on. As far as me I'm totally a newbie at these things.I sent an e mail to the person I bought him from and his response was . He never has done that before. I did manage to pass the junior with my pup.
