    I think that you can do some drill work to improve marking and familiarize them on different marking concepts, but the pinpoint part just might be God given.
    Agreed, the eyes have it. There is marking and there is stepping on the marks.

    Look, a mark is a mark. There are many so called drills that are great depending on the dogs level.
    What is rarely if ever discussed here is how to Train the dog to run marks and what to do when things go wrong, pitfalls and the ramifications of not handling, recalling, correcting etc when necessary and at the correct time.

    "Smoke" Smokin Auggies Menace, QAA (2003- )(retired nut case, ask Rando)
    "Simba" Humewood Simba (1999-2014)(my 1st dog)

    .
    Per favore, non mi rompere i coglioni.

    That is a thread I would tune into and stay tuned! I've been around just long enough to know what a good mark and a bad one are, but to take that bad one and get some training in, thats where we all need help! When to help - when to handle, When correction - when attrition, etc!
