Well I ran Gauge afew more times on the double T and she continued to do well I have not done discipline casting yet that is next. What I did do was move out to a new field last night with about 8 inch tall grass set the double T up brought her out and identified the back pile for her and ran it. I was happy with how well she did and how she took her casts and think I am ready to move to swim by after discipline casting.

Thanks

Well we have been working on marks the last while trying to get ready for our first hunt test. Using lots of frozen ducks and the dokken. Just a few videos of how we are doing. This one it is a bit longer that we normally run and also the cover is very short almost non existent. We usually run pretty heavy cover but we were just at the uncles and I took the opportunity for a few marks.

Last but not least and my favorite for sure, Liam 5 wanted a turn running Gauge, in his defense there was a dead duck off to that side of that shed or else I think she would have listened and heeled for him better.

You've done a great job with Gauge! Also Liam! Looks like you've got a built in 'bird boy' for the next 10 years! He'll be wanting his own lab in about 3 years!
I assume you are gonna run Senior?

Ha good one Tenfinger, no I entered into Jr. slow and steady wins the race, I am nervous as heck. This week is training thru decoys, holding blinds and the CD with all the background hunt test noise and I hope another dog.

Phild,

All the videos I've seen are of flat throws. Don't forget to throw angle backs, down the shores, down treelines, etc. :thumbsup:

Doing good!

Absolutely these are good things to train for, but remember this is a Junior stake that Phil & Gauge are entering. Not sure what AKC JH tests are like, but CKC judges generally remember that these are dogs (and handlers) that are usually new to the HT game and set JH tests accordingly.

If Phil keeps up his training he and Gauge will be headed to Senior tests in the not too distant future! :thumbsup:

only thing i saw in one video was where gauge was at heel and the bird hit the ground and you picked it up. i watched at work so didnt have sound so not sure what you were saying and did notice that it was pretty wet outside and the dokkons get very slick with water and dog slobber. but just remember at the test she has to deliver to hand so if for some reason she drops it make sure she picks it back up.

and dude she is fast Belle is a no where near that fast

I understand, but angled throws are a basic concept, especially as a single on light cover. Usually, Junior throws are flat or very slightly AB.

Train for Master, test for Junior.....

I did say drop and it slipped out of my hand, if she does dorp it repositioning she picks the bird back up without commanding. She is pretty fast but sometimes that is a pain in the ass becasue she runs so hard she will drop the bird.

I do throw angle backs, there might not be a lot of angle on these throws but I do throw them that way. As well on the water I throw up the shore line. I have not done down tree lines yet never even thought of it to tell the truth thanks.

Thanks

i figured you did since you did send her off the be FF and im sure she will be fine at the hunt test only because they use ducks and at the end of one of the videos she was way more interested in the duck than the dokkon and if she is anything like my dog she gets a little sticky with a fresh duck.
