In Jay-Birds thread on FTP he is getting conflicting advice on whether he should be using dead bird. I was wondering what y'all do.
I think I started using it on pattern blinds. When we step up to the mat for cold blinds, I usually cue her after I give the sit command, then I try and line her up for the blind. Sometimes I repeat the cue. I'm trying to figure it out, so I'm wondering...
(Me on first dog.)
To add: I'm wondering what the pros and cons are of introducing it at different points in the training sequence.
