Hello. Welcome to Oliver's official progression thread. These are his tales as he leads his new life. If you are here to tell me he is not a bird dog, save your megabytes. I am aware of the doubters and haters out there. I hope you enjoy Oliver's tales and are open minded on a new type of job that, in my own belief, really highlights the abilities of the German Shepherd Dog. He will be tested, from an early age, on his ability to control and make use of his senses.
Yesterday was his first practice session. Introduction to concentrated pheasant scent, pheasant lookalike, training dummies, check cord, whistle and a more detailed use of the clicker.
Today was his second day. A much nicer day. He remembered a lot from our short session yesterday. He was able to successfully learn the 'bird' command, and was able to locate it up to about 15 feet. He is sitting on command. Working on down
Stay was admirable up to about 7 or 8 feet. I was able to capture a couple pics after he was all tuckered out lol.
I will now be taking a digital camera with me being that's the only thing I forgot. So the pics will get better lol. And I will be able to get pics of him working. (cell cam sucks)
So long for the moment.
Howdy from Idaho!
