So I was lucky enough to go pheasant hunting this past weekend for the first time and had a blast. In a surprise to no one, a dog would have been a huge help in flushing out the birds, and I’m considering bringing along my 2 year old Duck Tolling Retriever next time for this purpose. He has pretty extensive agility training (competes at a high level) and isn’t startled by shots as he comes along with me almost weekly to skeet shooting, but has no formal field or hunt work. I don’t expect him to become a master overnight, or even at all (especially given his late start at this) but I was wondering if anyone had some recommendations on exercises or commands I could work on to make him more effective at this task? I’d also appreciate any feedback on if this is even a good idea to try, or if it would just be better to find a friend with a spaniel instead. Thanks!
