Worked Spud and Tess on some pigeons this morning. Spud was showing off, Tess was all about the Prey Drive. Hope you all are doing well under our circumstances.

Had a good wind for a setup this morning so I did. She was dragging the check cord, hit the scent cone, pointed and held for a long time before I finally fished out my phone and took this short video. She was still holding when I popped the bird. Her neck is too small for the GPS so using a Bell. Lost her for a few very tense minutes a couple days back.

End of her tail is bristled out with excitement.

I’m jealous AG. Not much I enjoy more than working with a promising pup that is motivated and has the goods!

Thank You, Gentlemen,

14 weeks old today, Filmed this a moment ago. Some say working OB at an early age inhibits independence. Not if you do it right and balance it with lots of exposure is my answer to that. She got out 150 yards on her own in the tall grass cover in the front yard yesterday. Don't need her to be any more independent than that right now.

Wow.

Good girl Tess!
Dasher turned 12 weeks yesterday and we are about 13 weeks behind your progress.

Hi knows sit, and down and kennel and here, but is not reliable on any of them. As soon as he learns something he finds a way to avoid being obedient.
He has learned to clear a baby gate though...

Nice job AG

Great video.

Obedience inhibiting independence? Ignorant people should keep their opinions to them self instead of proving to everyone how ignorant they are.

Oh Thanks for the Laugh around the baby gate, Porter!

Let me come clean. I only post the good stuff.

I posted this photo on FB this morning. It is what we have resorted to in our attempt to keep Tess off of the couch behind it. Verbiage in my post included the following: "She has been whacked with a riding crop so many times we should be filiming 50 Shades of Tess. She is obviously into it." Hang Tough, that strong will is a sign of great things to come in the field.

You should share that with tanglefree, they would probably get a kick out of that!

If that's true, I've got a freaking hall of famer on my hands!
There's a case of "50 shades of Schwartz Schinnel," gong on here too.

We have mostly only been able to do OB work and go for a short run in the woods or field. I am really looking forward to getting him into some birds. Has Tess met a real bird yet? What about water? I am waiting until Dash has his Lepto shots before I do a water intro. That is probably paranoid, but i don't want him getting sick.

In the first picture, your dog is holding head very stylishly.
How far he was from the bird?

He was about 50 yards off that bird.

Homemade bumper the perfect size for her to easily pickup and carry. Feathers to de-sensitize her to them. Tunnel to give only one direction to go with it which is back to me. Trading a Treat at the end of the short session to avoid resentment in giving up her prize. Thought it might help someone to share the approach.
