You are on the way to passing. He’s learning very solidly. I see why you prefer this to IGE
Thanks. If my only choice was IGP, I wouldn't compete. I am also very fortunate that our club is only 30 minutes away. I think if I had to travel several hours, as many people do, I also would not compete.
Love the picture with the bucket!
He looks like one of your dogs in that picture. Maybe Teaky?
Teaching maintaining a focused heel with decoys running by.
His focus is amazing. You two look good together. I like how trim and fit he is,
Thanks. Because of the level of control the sport requires, a lot of the training is boring. But yesterday we worked on him holding a down in the back of a U-Haul while a decoy was hollering, moving and firing shotgun blanks. Then he was sent from the U-Haul, over a jump and into a guard of the decoy.
