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 crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
