Me and my pup went shed hunting for the first time this year...... bit too much snow, but still a good walk in the woods. He has cabin fever worse than me...... thawing out now.... should be able to run some pattern blinds soon!! Cant wait.

Saturday we went out and shot a couple of flier singles for Scooter. I missed both barrels on the second one and it flew off into the woods. Scooter went in after and rooted him out of the creek and brought him back. 3 Fliers for the price of 2.
The gunner is rusty. The dog is rusty. We ran 1 decent all age water blind. Then we hacked up a land blind. I see what I need to work on.
The highlight of Saturday was Lottie, the new pup, getting her first duck. One of the fresh shot fliers.
I posted pictures on the main forum. http://www.retrievertraining.net/for...ad.php?t=66506
After all that I set up the thrower and my 13 year old daughter shot a round of skeet. she broke 14 of 25. She just started last year and she is really improving.
It was a pretty good afternoon all the way round.

I helped run a training day for our club on Saturday. Had probably 25 handlers and probably 35-40 dogs there. It went really well. Then went down to Corsicana for two days and trained with 3 others. My 4 dogs got lots of good training in the last 3 days. Have been running lots of long single marks with lots of concept. They have all improved lately. Couldn't ask for a better last 3 days.

I believe a dog should be able to do what the breed was intended to do, not just be good to look at.
