Need a trainer for hunting

Postby tplavak » Mon May 10, 2004 11:17 pm

I have a 5 year old brittany male (neutered) that I need to be steadied to whoa and broke to retreive. I am a first time owner/trainer and have messed up this part.

Ben, has caught several birds in his life and now thinks he can catch them all, so he will not hold point and crowds them until they flush....then chases them. When I am close to him...I can get him to whoa and hold it until I flush the bird....especially if he is getting a strong scent from a breeze but this is not often enough to become a habit. Hence, I need help as I put to much pressure on him when we do work with birds...Any help in this area would be greatly appreciated. I live in Chicago and would like to find someone in Illinois or Iowa preferrably.
