Our hunting seasons ended last weekend (Jan 28), so now we are back to doing some "real" dog training. For the 5 months of our hunting seasons, we only did minimal "tune up training" here at the house. Went out to a training area yesterday and set up "Master Level" (HRC Finished) training scenarios (triple marks and two blinds). We were amazed at how good the dogs were. The young dog was slightly sloppy on the blinds, but not bad and of course the old dog (age 9) was still sharp as a tack. Although it wasn't real hunting now, the dogs had a ball.. They love to train.
