    Default Hunting Question

    I have been hunting my almost 2 year old lab this past duck and goose season and when there's a slow period my dog wants tries to wonder around not paying attention is there any drills that I can do to help he relax and not be so almost out of control? any help would be great!

    Obediance, sit does mean sit but how long can you expect a two year old to sit and wait for the birds to fly in? When I take my pups out I try to take them when I know there's going to be plenty of action, kind like taking a kid for the first time. I did not expect my dogs to site for hours waiting for the occasional bird.

    I will even shoot the occasional coot if nothing else is happening. Like any other part of my trainnig I build on this portion of the game, extending the time with each outing(if necessary). Usually by the end of the season the pup is stiing like a well behaved hunting partner and watching for the next flight.

    I took some bumpers along hunting when my dog was with me. When it slowed and it wasn't a time of day I would be expecting brids to show up I ran drills on him. Kept him occupied and from becoming bored in the blind.
