As some of you might know from earlier threads I have a GSP pup called Max now 7 months old.
I've been teaching him to bark when he finds a deer carcass which I let him find after laying a trail and hiding it in some cover.
My question is am I doing the right thing? Will this cause him to bark every time he scents a live deer? I personally think he's bright enough to pick up when I want him to bark and when I want him to shut up, but it would be good to know what others think ?
