How often a week do you work on retired guns? I just started working them in for the past couple weeks and don't want to overdue it..

Thanks

Lardy says don't do retired guns too often on familiar grounds. Good to do every time you are on new grounds. I do them too often on familiar grounds. Virtually every set up I run has a retired gun or two.

Ditto on both the familiar grounds and amount of retired guns. For my young dogs I keep the guns out. But start retiring some of them when they show they're marking. My 13 month old has had some, not lots of, retired guns. She will be getting more.

For older dogs I do them when I run multiple set ups, say 25% of the time. Lots of times I do HRC setups and all guns are hidden. For young dogs, like Hank, every now and then but still off singles.
