Re: Some things I could manage without.

Barn cats , keep the rodent population down so rodents aren't attracting snakes. Cats also catch and kill the snakes. If you are going to have barn cats do make a little effort to keep them healthy. They also need some vaccinations .

Re: Harness for a hunting dog

There are some here who train for the German tests which include blood tracking. I would think they could help. Perhaps reask the question as help with getting started blood tracking ?

Good luck and let us know how it progresses.

GunDog Supply is a good recommendation!

Re: Collar Breaking A Dog

The 550 has 6 settings on the dial but each has a high medium low. So there is 18 settings. If you watch any Perfection kennel videos they stress always constant not momentary.

Re: issue that I cant find advice for

The force fetch will help. Taking your dog out with others and throwing bumpers for the others and teasing him about it while you restraint him would probably get it done also. Make it exciting and the dog will want in on the fun.

Re: Recall worries during na test

The recall isn't a huge problem at most na tests. It is a good idea to work on recall and work with a group. You and the dog and 3 to 5 additional people in the field and even.older dogs aren't sure of what's happening.

Hope everyone who trials or tests reads this. Our dogs don't always react to a change in the program. As a example , we shuttle dogs in a box/kennel mounted on a utv to speed up our tracking test in navhda. A dog never having experienced this sometimes does not perform up to par.
