Training Table

4 posts in this topic

I have been preparing to pick up my pup in the begining of Aug. This is my first dog (pointing lab), and I'm wondering about the use and effectiveness of a training table. My dad's never used them, hence I've never seen one is use. I'm debating building one and then wondering how to implement it in my training. Thanks guys

I do some of my training on a table or bench. Fetch and hold are taught there... sit and stay is also re-inforced there. It is easier to elevate the dog than continually stoop over. Plus you have good eye contact and the dog is less prone to 'bolt' when elevated. I just use our picnic table.

I believe a lot of pointing dog and versatile dog trainers use them in teaching 'whoa' and staunchness. But I know little about pointing do training... Setterguy or GSPman will chime in about that.

Good Luck!

Ken

You can always get away with the top of a crate...I use that in addition to a 55gal barrel (on it's side).

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
