Paul's answer made me think of a question kinda sorta related to the original question in this post.
Hypothetical situation: Older pup, say 1 yr or so, lots of drive, hunts with his eyes on marks. Will circle round and round until he sees the bumper, just doesn't use his nose. Dog gets right much marking work and has for some time - just doesn't seem to be figuring out how to use the nose, just races around until he sees it which sometimes results in some really huge hunts. My question is, can you (and how should you) teach him to use his nose? I thought with experience he'd just figure it out, but this doesn't seem to be the case. Any thoughts or opinions or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks.
