9:00 – 10:00 Morning Training Sessions – Pick One
– Intro to “stop to flush” (pointers/flushers/retrievers)
Pointers “whoa” on flush, flusher/retrievers “sit” – foundation work for backing and more advanced steadiness training.
– Intro to “directional casting” (pointer/flushers/retrievers)
Hand signals to send dog “over” (left/right) and “back” for retrieves. Stop (sit/whoa) to whistle.
– Intro to “hunt dead” birds (pointers/flushers/retrievers)
Search for lost game: dog conducts an independent, expanding search in an area to locate dead birds – Note: this is different from both a “marked” and a “blind” retrieve.

Dogs run in pairs on planted birds – sign up during registration.
