This past week the SS gang worked on distractions during blind work. Distractions can be holding blinds used to hide the person planting the blind, holding blinds used to hide the people throwing the marks, they can be decoys near the line of the blind and it can be a duck thrown in the area of the blind so the dog has to go through that old scent. All which can cause a problem for young or advanced dogs. Gambler had worked on this last year as he was running master level tests where you mostly see these distractions. Glory was running seniors so she hasn’t seen too much of this so it was time to start training her in it.
Gambler starts today:
Heading out past the snow geese decoys to the blind.
Picking up the duck at the blind.
Heading back with the duck from the blind.
I gotta get there fast.
Next blind retrieve Gambler had to pick up a bumper.
Bringing it back.
MK supervising the training session.
After Gambler was done John said “go get mom” and this is his face charging me on the ground.
Glory got sucked into the snow geese decoys, she wanted to go check them out, she got told to sit.
Right hand turn.
Next the holding blind distracted Glory.
Getting Glory to get away from the holding blind.
Bringing the bumper back.
