Default Gundog training.

For those who think training finishes once your dog has grown up, Amy is now 13 years and 2 weeks old. Out for a bit of training this morning. OK, we cut down on the distance and duration of the training a bit, but she still loves using her brain. And there are always different scenarios you can use. With Amy it was the bridleway and Navigation Spinney and for Chloe we went out into the sheep field to make use of a freshly dug drainage ditch. (Don't go out into sheep fields unless you dog is 100% steady around sheep, and just as important, the farmer knows you and KNOWS your dog is 100% around sheep.

Agree John, the training never stops! Although in my case it's me that's still in training, not the dogs!

I know I'm always advocating gundog training for people having problems, but once started the dogs love it and there is always interesting and different situations you can use to vary the training. In fact the two retrieves above were both within 10 minutes walking time of each other. The drainage ditch I used for Chloe was only dug last week to help drain the fields. Navigation Spinney where Anna's retrieve was is just to the left, over the brook which that drainage ditch empties out into. The retrieves you do are only limited by your imagination. A lovely morning's training, then a stop off for a hot sausage and bacon bap and a cup of coffee on the way home! What better way to spend a morning.
