We rescued a Long Haired Hungarian Vizsla in Oct 2012 from Hungary. She was approx 6-8 months at the time, she was in a 'kill shelter' but we have no reason to believe she had been miss-treated. I have been going some general gun dog training with her but unfortunately she’s a gun shy. Tried introducing her gentle at clay ground to shotgun but unfortunately it’s not really working. It could be something that happen to her before we got her.
Anyway, she’s got a cracking little nose on her and lots of drive so I thought I might try and do some tracking training. I know there is still exposure to gunshot, but less so and it’s probably easier to manage.
Any thoughts on what I could as some initial training/tests and to get a sense of whether or not she might have a nose for it or not?
