    I have noticed that some people like to train while hunting and others do not.
    The truth is that you cannot do anything with your dog without training him. He is going to draw conclusions about his world and how to behave in it whether you like it or not.
    When you send him without giving a line he will be confused and as a result, will pop. Repeat it enough and he will pop every time whether you line him or not. This behavior will frequently get so bad that the dog will not carry any kind of cast more than ten feet or so before popping thus making it impossible to complete a blind retrieve.
    Let him continue to drop the birds on the ground in front of you while hunting and he will do the same at a test or trial. Both of these faults will ensure you will not be called back for the next series.
    The same goes for allowing pup to skirt water and/or cover.
    If you intend to run any kind of structured retriever game you will need to train for it year round and that means especially when hunting.
