Pointing lab training seminar this weekend with Julie Knutson!

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to give a heads up to anyone interested that Julie Knutson (author of Training the Pointing Labrador)is hosting a two-day pointing lab training seminar for the Minnesota Pointing Lab Club at RJ's Rooster Ranch in Lonsdale this weekend. Julie is one of the top PL trainers in the nation and is coming in from CO to give this seminar.

Additional details can be found on the MN Pointing Lab site. Need not be a member to attend but the price is a little more for non-members. The spots open for attendees to bring their own dogs to use in the seminar is full.

A quick description of whats going to be covered:

Quote:
Sat a.m. Introduction, General discussion (~1-2 hrs), Tool building: obedience, force fetch, collar conditioning. Retrieving if necessary or desired. Whoa conditioning. Tool building will be the first place we get people’s dogs out and use them to illustrate the steps, problems, etc. At the end we can do some marks, blinds if we get the time or have any interest in that. If time allows, people with questions about handling and advanced retriever issues can work on those.

Sunday: revisit all the questions or issues people will have after thinking all night about things. Then we begin start with the little pups and bird intro (if there are any) and go through a series of putting birds out, listening to what that owner’s concerns or problems are, then running the dog, doing whatever is necessary and them coming back and talking about it with the whole audience.

At the end of the upland we can do whatever people want, talk about advanced stuff, run blinds, talk about passing APLA tests, etc. etc.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
