    DefaultField training seminar

    Caleb and I took a day off of obedience and did a field training seminar. Boy was it nice to be back working in the field again! It had been a looooooong time! Loved it! Most of the people there are people that actively compete in obedience. I think Caleb had fun and did well. I do hope to get his JH sometime. Anyway, here is a slide show of some of his runs.

    Great picts! I found that field training is a great way for the dogs to blow off steam when they are heavy into the competitive obedience. A great way to clear their minds when there are 3-4 days shows. The only thing I do not give in on in field training is the automatic finish...I can't afford to have any of them think that is appropriate in the obedience ring. A few of the Hunt Test judges comment on it (some of the hard core Hunt Test judges do not like it (coming to front first, but it is legal!)

    Adding, have you considered doing UKC hunt tests? There are A LOT more of them than AKC and they are a lot more fun (JMO).

    For the coming to place I use the same handsignal as the Moving Stand and tell him to place. We'll see what he does in the ring.

    I might try a UKC hunt test, too. Not done one of those before.

    I have found the UKC judges very appreciative of competitive obedience dogs. There is one judge lady in the area (Southern MI and Northern OH) that does competitive obedience also. Some Flatcoat people that do Obedience, Conformation, Agility and Hunt Tests! In AKC, I had one judge reprimand me for using a hand signal to tell Hoss to Stay, while I turned around to hand the judge the duck....she said I was intimidating Hoss!

    Adding, the UKC/HRC tests at Pioneer Ohio are marvelous!

    How do they differ from AKC?

    In UKC at the Started level (JH version) the dog does not have to deliver to hand, the marks tend to be shorter, and you can talk to the dog once you have indicated you are ready for the bird and before the bird is thrown. There are no shot flyers in UKC (at least at the Started level). In UKC you must wear camo (at least a shirt). Also, the shot comes from you (or at Started you can have someone else shoot the gun), as opposed to AKC where the shot comes from where the duck is launched

    Looks like a lot of fun Susan. No birds? I so love to handle dead birds... NOT! LOL.

    BTW, I didn't recognize you.. you look so skinny! Are you still doing weight watchers? I've started!

    Yes I have been doing Weight Watchers. Now that I've pretty much gotten back into the correct eating habit I'll probably drop my membership.

    Oh ya, all dead birds, they just do not release a live bird and shoot it (they are not always dead, so your dog needs to know how to handle a cripple, and fresh blood. Sometimes the duck challenges the dog, so it can put off many rookie dogs)
