That is AWESOME!!!!!!I don't teach it but there is a gentleman that has an HRCH in Kearney, NE that guides goose hunts on the Platte River. He has his dog trained so that if they knock down more then one goose he sends his dog for the retrieve, sends the dog to the nearest sandbar, commands drop, handles him for the next goose, over to sandbar, etc., etc.
Once all the geese are piled on the sandbar he then starts having the dog return them to the blind. This way he doesn't waste the time of running up and down the river while the geese float away.
Thought this was a good example of its use.
LVL,Gypsy was taught a remote drop, not as a mouth issue, but as a control issue. I taught her the canine version of "pushups". On a remote sit, drop-fetch-drop-fetch-drop-fetch. If she failed at any stage, she got a nick. She was, is, and will ever remain the kind of dog that one needs to maintain control over, or all is lost. Caveat: I DO NOT RECOMMEND this drill for the more trainable, eager-to-please animal. It is mental gymnastics, pure and simple, and can wipe out a softer dog. It is mentally exhausting, which is why I did it with this dog. She sure drained my brain enough times.
