Tune Up Time...North Texas Dog Trainers
North Texas retriever trainers are gearing up for the dove season fall out. We will be hearing all the “Why is my dog doing this” questions. North Texas Dog Trainers will be tuning up dogs before the season to head off some of this. Those that have not worked the dog need to take the dog out and see where the hiccups will be. This is very true of the young pup. Many of them that have not see birds or bumpers with distractions will be in for a good or bad surprise. The gun dog owner needs to get them out in the heat. This needs to be done very carefully. Build up the length activities for the both of you. Use a launcher for the bumpers either a hand or remote. Make sure you teach not just show them a few marks. Make them be steady close and away from you. Shoot the hand launcher while you are at varying distances from the dog. Shoot over their heads while you are 30 yds away so it lands behind them. This is a drill that will make a dog rock steady if you have taught them close first to be under control. You should be able to walk away for at least 100 plus yds while they sit. North Texas retriever trainers should teach all their clients how to reinforce this here sit and to be steady at a distance drill. The owner should do complex marking in heavy cover short first and then up to 40 plus yds. Always let the dog try to figure it out before you start blowing the whistle. Just because your dog can somewhat handle, you don’t need to go flailing your arms about to scare everything off for the next ten minutes. Let the dog develop it’s nose and find the prey. Dogs do not as some people think scare off game by running in the field or swimming in water. Dogs actually attract waterfowl when swimming in the water or running the bank. If you have hunted long enough with a dog you have seen this. The owner can find many ways to tune up the pup if they just think of when they are in the field hunting.
