VIDEO: Higgins Gundogs, Beginning Bracework

Postby Higgins » Fri Sep 21, 2018 7:58 pm

Here are William and Nigel in the field this morning. This is their first time together working birds. Before beginning their brace work, both were shown individually, that stalking and steadiness lead to success. Now it's time to turn them loose and see what choices they make. No voice commands (whoa, etc.), no hand signals, whistles or electric collars are used. I like what I see.

I'll post more video soon of our bracework including sending the dogs in to flush (our 'flush/stop" cue), and retrieving with multiple dogs.

I hope you enjoy the video.

Higgins Gundogs hunting etiquette:

Dogs: Stay in touch and handle well. Always honor another dog's point, be steady when necessary and manage the birds for the gun.
Handlers: Be silent in the hunt. Allow the dog the freedom to do his work. Nurture the natural retrieve.
