    Running in

    My 4 year old lab is pretty good in all aspects of shooting apart from the dreaded running in..
    Any good ideas on how to stop it????

    Unless you can run 30 miles an hour mate there is a solution it cost me 125 and it cured it in two short treatments .its not everyone's cup of tea but it did work on an older dog I had let get away from me my fault !

    Corkscrew and lead intially, but it will depend how steady it is when training. Just ur basic throwing dumies all round him as he sits without moving for any. Ideally u would intro him to shooting more gradually ideally a day when ur not shooting but just standing on a mates peg with him so ur concentrating on the dog
    Also don't let him pick all the easy ones around ur peg that u can easily pick urself, and possibly before u send him for a bird walk him off ur peg a few m's so he eventually gets to know he won't be sent from the peg so should relax a bit.

    My dogs will sit nae bother when picking up, even when i fall asleep at the grouse with grouse whizzing 6ft over there heads never move, yet on the rare occasiion's i stand and shoot nothing like as steady they realsie i'm concentrating elsewhere and then 1 dog will keep pushing boundries with the other dogs pushing it.

    Cheers guys , I could throw dummies around this bitch all day without her moving, but a bird falling from the sky three guns down and she's gone, ive been picking up with her and this is not as big a problem , but it drives me nuts when on a peg...not sure I could bring myself to electrocute her...

    Mines are the same they know when ur picking up ur semi focussed on them but when ur shooting ur not.

    Try and go out with a mate and stand at his peg but concentrate on dog, will depend how well ingrained it is thou.
    Possibly if u use a corkscrew for long enough it may break the habit/cycle, and after a while will be steady of the lead

    Only other thing i sit them in front of me so i can watch them and as soon as they lift there arse a tiny bit, bol***k, growl/no at them then plenty of praise as soon as sitting properly, even giving a treat if i sits nice BUT severely doubt that would work with any decent driven dog on a shoot day, temptaions and rewards be far to much for them
