    Default Look Ma! No leash! Steadiness drill

    Traveling today to watch our first field trial this weekend. We stopped for a long walk in the park and found a great training opportunity.

    This is my girl Flyer - a Stanley Steamer pup. It was her first birthday today.

    LOL! Great video. But I want to see her flush a pheasant out of the heavy cover, a few inches from her nose when she's 30 yards away from you, and be steady!
    Happy birthday Flyer!

    I wanted to be hiding in the bushes and yell FLYER! hahahaha That would have been priceless. Wonder what the bread throwers would have thought of that?
    Good job, nice looking girl. Let us know what you think of the trial.

    Great video!
    Something interesting I've seen with my dog is she knows the difference between hunting and bird watching. We live in an area were there is a lot of resident geese and when we are out and about she doesn't pay much attention to them. They can fly around,honk and just make all kinds of racket and she doesn't pay them much attention but let one of those suckers back pedal over decoys and its all she can do to contain herself!

    I know Barb! I'm sure that a flush would turn out with a very different ending - and swearing!

    And yes, I was glad none of you pranksters were in the bushes. A gun shot would've ended the deal, too, I'm sure. But it is fun to take training opportunities when they present themselves. Just glad we didn't end up traumatizing the bread throwers.
