Teaching a Gun Dog to Handle: “Cody…Go Back” the series | Ep #22

Teaching a gun dog to handle is a step in every duck, upland, and gun dogs journey. Before we start this training, the dogs foundation must be solid. The sit to the whistle command must be completed and strong enough that your dog does it at a distance. In this episode of the DogBone Pawdcast, we talk about a new training series we have started and will continue called “Cody…Go Back”.

This series will follow Jeremy as he completes start to finish the process of teaching a gun dog to handle. Episodes will be uploaded daily to our YouTube account, and will allow you to see the steps Jeremy takes to get a dog to handle.

Episode 22 digs into this new series, and why this will benefit you in your own training efforts.  Professional Dog Trainer Jeremy Moore teaches a young dog how to understand hand signals and take directions using “go back” to send the dog back and “get out” to the left and right.

There are steps that we need to take before starting the handling process and your foundation must be 100% including a solid sit to the whistle. When teaching handling to a dog, we always start with the back command. Back is an extension of a dogs ability to line, you are just sending him/her from a different position.

Dog Training and Connecting Links of the Chain: Interview on the Lone Duck Podcast | Ep: #21

When dog training, we need to keep a big picture goal in the back of our minds. An analogy Jeremy uses very often is that of a chain, you need all the links in the chain connecting for there to be a chain. You could have a few very strong links, but without the rest of the links you won’t have a chain. The same is true in our dog training in that we could be very solid with some aspects, but lacking in others. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, which is why we need to be able to recognize what our dogs need work on and not be afraid to face it.

In this podcast, Jeremy is airing on the Lone Duck’s Gun Dog Chronicles podcast, and discusses some big picture ideals that he always has when trying to get the most out of his dogs.

A Retriever Training Must: They Key To Unlocking the Retrieve | Ep #20

In this episode, we are answering questions on retriever training. We start out by discussing takeaways from this year’s workshops, and common themes among the handlers and dogs that attended.  One of these theme that was very evident was the need for hold conditioning.

Many dogs did not have the finished retrieve that we are looking to get in our retriever training. Chomping on the bumper, dropping short, victory laps, unwillingness to bring bumpers to hand, and “switching” (dropping one bumper mid retrieve to pick up another) are all symptoms of a dog that is in need of hold conditioning. Hold conditioning fixes all these problems, and as we like to say, “is the key to unlocking the retrieve.” We have a ton of information and content on how, when, and where to complete hold conditioning with your own dog such as the DogBoneHunter YouTube page, our Facebook, and these podcasts!

Early Retrieves With Puppy: What To Know Before Starting With Your Shed Dog | Ep: #19

Many people make the mistake of starting too early, not starting the right way, and get impatient when starting out with early retrieves with puppy. By starting too early or retrieving too often, and starting off incorrectly, a dog can very easily become what we call “shed shy” which is very similar to a gun shy dog. If the dog has a bad experience with sheds at a young age you run the risk of turning them off antlers.  This becomes a very difficult and time consuming fix.

What needs to happen first in early retrieves with puppy: short pitches in a hallway with a balled up sock. Get the dog to go straight out and back, and do not start out with real sheds or anything that is a struggle for the young pup to pick! Early intro risks a dog jabbing itself on a tine and creates a negative experiences with something that is ultimately what you want them to love.  We start out with the Antler Dummy to condition shape…it is soft, won’t poke or jab and eliminates your risk of the negative introduction.
