Posting this for one of the newer handlers in our training group: She has a MH (3 years old) who has never been used as a stud, however his love of the "women" is hindering his work at hunt tests. She works at training with him to keep his head up both in the blind and the way to the line, but in a test, without the collar or stick, he practically glues his nose to the ground. Yesterday he went out in the third series. On the way to the line, she had a hard time heeling him as he stopped cold, put his nose down and stayed there while the judges waited impatiently for her to get him under control. While at the line, as the first bird went off, his nose was in the grass, not looking for the birds. Not surprisingly, he picked up the first birds two clean, then ran all over the place looking for the memory bird, which of course he never saw, and ended up finding and picking up the hot blind. She is looking for help (and ideas to get him back to business) as she is becoming very frustrated with him. Appreciate any help you can offer!
