I have a six and almost half blm. He is a great pup, already has two NAHRA started and one AKC junior passes. However I have been working on his collar conditioning. Well he does great with his sit, heel, and here. When I have him sit I can usually walk 60 70 yards away and call him here. He does great and hustles to me. So I have been trying to get him to walk ahead of me and explore while working on his here. So I blow the whistle a couple of times right after or right as i nick him and he was doing great. Well now he doesn't want to leave my side cause he doesn't want to get away far enough to get a nick and here call. I was trying to only call him back if with here command when he ranged out too far or if I wanted to change directions. I was thinking about taking him out with my other dog because she will range out about 30 40 yards and I can bring her in easily. Is that a good idea? I really just want him to hustle to me when I give the here command. I upland hunt a lot so I don't want him attached to my hip too much. Minor problems, but I just don't want to create any bad habits. Should I go about it differently? Thanks for your read!
