So my young dog, now almost 8 months old does really good in the field. I have been taking him pheasant hunting the last few weekends and when we get a bird, he runs out, retrieves it and drops it in my hand or on the ground directly in front of me. However, as we walk around, he has this very unpleasant behavior. If he finds a dead bird... or animal, he totally disregards his commands and starts to inhale what he can before I make it over to him to take him away from the situation. Is there a way to correct this? Is this where the e-collar comes into play? II feel like it might be my only way to correct him without having to basically go to him and pulling him away. Any comments or past experiences with this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
