    Most of my time is spent training a young Labrador retriever called Pounce. When training there are moments when it is possible to take quick photos and not much time to think about composition. So I take a lot and find a few. The keepers are entered in a daily training journal. Once this routing began, it becomes ever so clear how little we actually see and/or remember.

    Besides the "in the moment keepers" other photos are used to reveal actual training setups including diagrams. Here are a few from the journal entries.

    Really nice actions action shots of your dog Pounce. How is he do on the hip pocket scenario? That's a tough one.

    Well, she is an excellent marker. However, on the first few she would flare the short gun station. So I ran several
    singles through and past several "stickmen" for a few sessions. That seemed to have a positive impact.....more
    focus on the AOF less influence of a short gun station.
