Been working with my pup all summer. With the winter in swing I am really able to work with him with the vest on. He doesnt like having anything on him. Well after some training sessions and as always he gets the hang of it and we move on. Well last night I decided to introduce the lay out blind that we have never had a problem with. At first he had no problem getting into it with the vest on. At one session I told him to kennel into the blind and when he did the vest snared the blind and he got hung up. Well now he refuses to get into it when the vest is on. I am able to through a bumper into it and he will get it but as soon as he feels the vest touch the blind he backs out. I went to get the shock collar to help with the issue and it was dead. So I had to suspend the lesson for the night. But now I feel that he may have gotten the best of me. Any Ideas?
Question, How does he do with the vest on when he is busting cover? Have you tried that yet? I suspect he will get use to the vest and it will be fine. Most dogs look and walk like their pants are full the first couple times they have it on. Once they get it, it's like putting on their collar and grabbing your shotgun.
I can't imagine why using a shock collar to introduce the vest would come to mind. I am glad it was dead. Don
