    My two-year-old Llewellyn has a great nose for live birds, but he walks right over dead birds like they aren't there. No matter how much I drag him past a dead bird--dove, quail, woodcock--he pays zero attention to it.

    Any thoughts on how to get him to at least find dead birds? I don't necessarily expect him to retrieve, but it would be nice if he at least showed me the general vicinity of a dead bird.
