Hey guys I have noticed a odd quirk with my dog over the past couple days with my dog and that he is starting to pop on his marks. Yesterday my training buddy and I got together and set up a season like test. We did a walk up and the dokken landed maybe 15 feet away from us. I sent max for the mark and he got 5 feet out in front of me, stopped, and just stood there looking at me. I told him to hunt it up and he proceeded right to the mark and brought it back.
Today I went out and did a bunch of walking singles with him and he did the same thing. He would go out into the field hunt for a little bit, than sit down and face me, I would tell him to hunt it up, and he would resume his hunt.
I dunno where this has came from. I have not been handling him on his marks. I have been focusing more on water marks than land so maybe I have thrown him a little bit out of balance. I've been doing both singles and doubles. I try to make the singles a little bit of a challenge for him.
