I have been doing some heel trainging around the back yard and this goes really well. But when you go off the property I guess the nose takes over and she has to smell everything. I was pretty strict on her this morning during a walk and I can see her responding. They do learn quick.
I am training her to point deer so usually also walk her on a long lead. This is going really well. She just isn't so keen on staying at my side.
Went for a real long walk this morning. Going well. It is spring here and there are lots of junenile birds leaving the nest so in the last couple of days V has taken to casing them. After having a run around a big empty field she chased a Thrush right up to the highway edge! I have been training her to sit by the road edge which she did and then came back on a LOUD Come command.
I guess I should start giving her a good telling off for chasing as I can't see this being very good for hunting (or anything else) when I start on that in a couple of months time.
