Hand Signals

Post by helly » Fri Aug 01, 2008 1:10 pm

Hello! New to this forum.

I lent my Bible Water Dog out and am looking for advise/tips. I have a Lab that will be 2 years 4 months at the start of this, his 3 year hunting. He's a pleaser and an intense hunter and I'm already looking forward to this years hunts! 8)

I'm looking for ideas for games besides baseball that the dog will like and at the same time retrain/strengthen his trust in me giving him hand signals.

Have you tried the "walking" version of baseball?
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

(And to see just how confused I really am, join us in my online blind at: Rick's 2009-2010 season log)

What about pattern blinds, sight blinds, walkout blinds? These are great for boosting confidence and trust in a dog.

I would get Evan Graham's dvd Walking Baseball. It clearly shows in the dvd how to properly run walking baseball. Now this drill is to maintain the dogs skills, its not a drill to teach a dog to handle. You can see the dvd at www.coonriverkennels.com
