firstly id like to say a very big thankyou to stone for putting on a fantastic training day yesterday, the day was attended by several members of various ages with dogs at different stages of training.
we all arrived at the training ground at nine ish were coffee and tea were waiting for everyone, with the introductions/meet and greet out of the way we proceeded outside were baron had mocked up a fumbled shot site/situation for us to work out this was very interesting and put everyone at ease by getting us all talking amongst ourselfs.
after this we went back inside to watch some dvd's on what to and not to do along with some very interesting conversation along with a good talk from baron with a Q/A session as we went.
after that was the practical part to the day with an introduction to scent shoes along with some do's and dont's to laying a trail "yes blood or not to blood came up !!!!!!!! haha" anyway good ole springerman got the job of being Mr. buck with the shoes and laying the trails and a fine job he did too "must of been hard work though as the lazy bugger fell fast on in my van on the way home haha" all dogs did very well and im sure stone and baron will agree all owners can be proud of what there dogs did.
this was followed by lunch which was a lovely venison stew layed on again by our host.
then more Q/A for the baron followed but a little more practical work, all in all as ive said a very well put together day
PS. rich you may like to put up some of the pics you were constantly taking !!!!! haha
