Looking for some ideas for marking my 7 month old pup. We are geting ready to start FTP in the yard as soon as the weather cooperates. Looking for some ideas for adding a little structure/purpose to my marking setups. Have been doing my yard work on my lunch break, and trying to work in some marking setups in the evening.
What are some of the first marking concepts you start to teach a young dog? So far most of my concept stuff has been "terrain oriented" Crossing creeks, cover strips, re-entries, etc.......
Almost exclusively training alone right now till the days get a little longer. I have (2) Two shooter bumper boys. Pup is steady and running stand alones out to ~150-200 yards (light cover) with ducks. Running widespread doubles off the BBs as well.
Thanks for any help!
