In another thread, a SASME stated that he had a derby dog with one win that wouldn't heel to the line, so he sold it as a gundog. :shock:
How fun must it be to hunt with that dog! I don't know if there is even anything to say about that comment, I just couldn't let it go.

uummmm, whats a SASME :oops: I might be able to understand that if the guy is just lazy. My wild dog is just fine hunting, where he spends a lot of time waiting for birds or something to happen, AND.....he has his ecollar on. But I am doing absolutely everything I can to get him under control so that we can test/trial. It is extremely difficult for me as a novice with a high drive dog, but at least I know line manners must be fixed before we can move on.
All I'm sayin', is that guy must just not care to work on it, and knows that you can burn 'em into submission in the field.

Work with him EVERY day for 10 minutes and you'll be surprised how fast he learns to be steady. I can't agree with you more about lazy, the guy needs to sell his brain and get a new one that knows a little patience.

I guess the guy has never been hunting either, dogs that break don't get invited back to hunts.
