    Default If You could spend ten days training with

    I seem to get a few inquiries about people wanting to train with Lanse at the Alabama HQ or the summer place in MT...contrary to popular opinion I am not his booking agent

    But since I will be taking some time off this spring, there is a strong possibility that I will spend those days training dogs up in Pendroy, hopefully culminating in running a trial at the same venue that Lanse frequents and the go back to the rat race

    So my question is this : if you could spend ten days training with Lanse, what would you want to work on ? in Montana the Pendroy property known as "Rerun" has big(make that huge) rolling hillsides, along with ideal flat fields manicured with just the right height grasses to hide a bird..

    The water is a succession of three ponds that can be run individually with technical type setups or as a combination...

    Lanse has the help in the form of hired birdboys and seems to have a good supply of ducks and pheasants

    the place is not the end all do all but you would be hard pressed to find many that are better, and as they say the price is right

    Helping my dog stay confident with ling water entries, angle entries and such. We just don't have that type of grounds here so we very rarely get to work with it. Also holding line along rolling hills terrain.

    I'm a long way from Montana, but my avatar dogs brother trained in that area. His name was Cody and he was owned by Steve Low

    I'd be working on what the dogs need. On land and water like that I know I'd be working on long outs.

    Here's a three-peat into the wind casting drill I might do.

    Hi Howard
    I was training today with Pete Plourde, Frenchy and his new pup Ginny. I believe you have a littermate to Frenchy

    Kind of what I had planned on doing,I will have Brig with me and he is a touch rusty...but then so am I....actually hoping Lanse gives me a shot running the gals (at least in training) have a soft spot for Sophie,

    Tell Pete, "Hello."

    My Missy is a littermate to Frenchy. Matter of fact, except for an accident of a virus, bacteria, or puppy getting into something, Frenchy would be mine and Missy would be Pete's.

    I didn't know what he named his new pup. Ginny is out of my bitch Missy. Hope she's doing well. She was a little fireball at 8 weeks.

    That land between the ponds looks kind of high I wonder how long you would lose sight of them after they go over it. You might have to move up to that piece of land to handle.

    Yup, I wasn't particularly concerned with the two right hand blinds as they have fairly square re-entries and I should know fairly soon if they hit the water or not. The left left hand blind is more problematic. I would like someone knowledgeable out there somewhere he could see with a radio to let me know what the dog is doing. That one isn't for young dogs but I've got two FC's that should know when given a choice they should get wet.

    Nice water. I would work on what my dogs need, casting off points and with one dog get wet and stay wet. I would just like the opportunity to train with someone that has had great success with lots of knowledge. I would enjoy just soaking up all I could in 10 days.
