But then not-so-funny, because pup, (depending on how long pups' been huntin' or his training history), should really be marking off the gun by now, and looking out afield when you shoot not concerning himself with empty casings.
Depends on the training history.
Does it happen in the training field,.. or in the blind, or when he's beside you, or does he move from a remote SIT from in his dog blind to come pick them up(?)
If you HEEL him on your left side and that's how you're training when you guys do marks, the shell casings should be ejecting the opposite direction from the dog.
Get rid of that 3-shot contraption and get an O/U
