Steady to shot????

3 posts in this topic

I want Mandy to stay when any one shoots, now she bolts to the sound every time.

How do I go about getting her to stay steady to the shot?

She is coller conditioned, and she does know her basic cammands well.Just can't get her to stay when a gun blast is heard.

Put her on a leash and have someone with you. Have the other person fire a shot. When the shot is fired command her to sit. Once she understands what you want and sits on the shot reliablely with the leash on, take the leash off and try it. Gradually increase the distance you are from her.

Benny,

We should get together a little bit and work the muts. Use both dogs and make one wait while the other one gets the dummy and change them up. This will help them wait and also watch. Also the trick about throwing out dummies and then you going and picking them up while the dog sits and waits will make them understand that not every bird that drops or shot that is fired means go for it. I also work in the command," All Gone," when I do not want them to go and look. It takes a little time but does sink in.

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
