Yeah, I normally am not a fan of training with treats, but throwing a treat in the blind and giving the command "Blind" worked well.
Now you have to realize, I didn't feed the dogs for four days prior to the training days!
You know me better than that Marty.
Once they were in there for the treat, the "down" and "stay" commands was all it took. Then they got an extra treat and lots of loving! I think that was the easiest command I've taught them.
Being crate dogs and traveling with them as much as we do must have something to do with them taking to this so well.
Let me know when you and the boy can make it out and see what a 1 yr old pup can do. When you going to get the other two younger boys going?
Also, keep in mind you have a great place to waterfowl now too Marty. Welcome to join us next year if you would like. Can always make room for another shooter or two.
