    I have trained my current pup, invoking Hillmans ideas as best as I can. Probably not as thoroughly as I should. He is almost 6 months now. I'm thinking that as sound as the sit priority is, a dog...

    Here moves the dog toward my knee. Heel moves the dog away from my knee. Regardless of which side it is on.
    I'm sure that stepping over the dog can be useful, but I have...

    I have hunted all of my FT dogs, and wouldn't think of doing otherwise. Some have been more high strung than others. I am willing to put down my gun at times to let others shoot while I make the dog...

    Regarding your first post,
    Try slowing down a lot in casting, give the dog 2 or 3 times longer than you normally would, to settle down and pay attention before you cast. A dog that goes like hell in...

    I should clarify that my preference is the bars. I have read that the boards are more likely to hold slush etc and more likely to encourage corrosion. I am also under the impression that stainless...

    "The land blind is only one of four birds"

    Are you using the collar when the dog refuses the whistle sit? It should be used after the 1st refusal, not the 3rd or 4th. Use as high a burn as you need, and not 1 bit more. After you get a good...

    Yup.
    The hard part for new trainers is the recognition, the discipline to address it, and finding and keeping balance.

    A smart hunter is very careful with introducing their dog to hunting. Work the dog, leave the gun unloaded. Hunt just that dog. Let others shoot. 1st hunt is a simple one with low cover, like a cut...
