    HOW STEADY IS YOUR LAB ?

    I've always said that a Lab that is steady is a pleasure to hunt with .

    Hunt tests are great training ,,but it's tuff for any Lab to be steady with ducks and or geese landing in the decoys eH

    Mine is "pretty" steady. Anyone who says that theres is totally steady is a liar. There ain't but 2 kinda dogs. Those that have broke, and those that are gonna break eventually!

    I shoot "walk out flyers" with mine about once a month, put her on a mat, walk 20 yards in front of her and throw and shoot a couple live flyers. Walk back and release. That is the best steadying drill I have found. Dead birds are not nearly the motivation to break that regular training with flyers gives you. My buddy showed up with a couple "flyer geese" one time and all heck BROKE loose, if ya know what I mean!

    Hoss is very steady. In fact I have tried to make him break by sending another dog right next to him (and NOT telling Hoss to stay)...he will not. I have shot fliers and NOT told him to stay, he is rock solid.

    Kodi on the other hand, not steady at all....have to have a leash on her, as even the ecollar will not stop her once she has fetch in her brain
