little help

2 posts in this topic

I bought a pop gun to get my dog ready for hunting. My he is force fetched will sit tell sent and bring back to hand after sitting.

Now I add in this popgun to the mix. with him sitting beside me I throw the bumper the fire the gun and hes off when I say no and call him back he sits and barks and jumps on me tell I send him. I would say thats a good start but I want him to say quit and close tell I send him.

How do I train this should I use the Ecoller or can that scare him away from the up and the force fetch and set me back 5 months. he was worked with the gun when he was a pup so that should be ok but I don't want to risk having a gun shy dog of course.

my be I should go buck to the heel stick?

hope you can help

thanks

maybe try running some "steady drills" with the bird thrower using the gun. or you can have a 3rd person firing a gun while doing the steady drill and slowly have them move closer and closer until you are able to take the gun and shoot over the dog while he remains steady. this obviously is going to take some time, don't rush it. it may take you 7-10 sessions, depending on how he does each time.

    • ouch, I would think all would good now, but one never knows.  life is good today is all i know.
    • 33 pounds. nice looking unit but kinda heavy. nice price out there.

    • Holiday Bowl isn't too shabby. I wonder if Tracy Claeys is nervous? Last time the gophers played a Mike Leach led team, it cost their coach his job 
    • I'm not in the market for a new auger since purchasing an Ion, but I see FF has a Redback electric auger in their ad. This auger looks similar to the Ion for significantly less money. Does anyone have experience with this auger? Just wanted to bring it up as a possible alternative to those who might be in the  market for an electric. As a side note, I am very happy with the Ion.
    • MLR, how heavy is your house?   After reading your experience I was getting worried. Earlier this summer I swapped out my handles with bolts and gave them a brief trial with my old cordless Dewalt. It was pretty much maxed out and likely not the ticket. Just purchased the Dewalt kit DCK283D2 that is 40% off at FF in hopes it might work. I figured the impact driver would work but didn't really want to be hammering on the gear set. Tried out the drill after work today on low speed and it raises my house easily. My house weighs approximately 3000#. No more hand cranking for me.   Wanted to get the Milwaukee Fuel but couldn't see spending $275 for one drill. This kit is $167 for drill and driver with 2 batteries and charger.
    • I was talking about the heat from the heat exchanger making the fan hot.  With the fan at the top it blows the hot air out the bottom of the heater to help heat the floor.  
    • This summer?   Seems like a long time.  Are you sure this guy knew what he was doing?     Freezing may or may not kill the parasite.     From CDC.  Freezing wild game meats, unlike freezing pork products, may not effectively kill all worms because some worm species that infect wild game animals are freeze-resistant.
