How do you line your dog for a blind retrieve when hunting out of a pit blind?
I have been getting him out of the dog box with a "back", then sitting him with the whistle, and casting him to the duck. This works great but my only issue with it is that I am creating a popping expert. He has learned to run out 10 yards and turn around for his next move. This is great when hunting but it's not gonna be so great when we start running our seasoned test.
I understand that we can train away from the habit after season is over but I am hoping to get some advice on a better way to do this and create less problems.
