10wk old Airedale Bitch worked fantastic on first blood trail.
Scudd and Pendle supplied the parts and the blood, I laid a 30m trail through a bog and as weather would have it, forced to do it in the rain.
Brought the pup on a long lead, pointed to the start of the trail and she just flew. Tail going crazy, head flying right to left and in less than a minute at the head tearing and ripping at the fur and the jugular. Pup marked the deer head when closing in, good sign.
Obedience training consists of witting and retrieving woodcock or duck wings, chasing a deer leg and sitting to lick blood of my fingers or get a piece of raw deer meat.
Having fantastic results for the short 5-10min training sessions.
