How much training the last 2 weeks before UT test?

Postby Houghtonic » Thu Jul 14, 2016 11:36 am

I'm going to be traveling the last two weeks prior to my clubs UT test this Fall. In those two weeks I'll only be home a total of about 3 days. I'm wondering how much prep training you typically do the last few weeks leading up to a UT test. I've never tested for UT so I am thinking I may just do the test on our Spring date due to my travel. What is your regimen leading up to a UT test?

Depends on the dog, their readiness for the test, the amount of readiness they lose if not worked, and your aspirations regarding the dog's results.

Xs 2 if he knows how to do the work just freshen him up, point, flush, shot and splash, steady, retrieve to hand, that's it for the field work. Long sit with gun fire, heeling through the posts don't use a leash, then you'll know what you have.

Water work, is he good at this or not?

Train the duck drag, if you don't you might not get it.

That's all there is to it.
