Hi guys. I am looking for a little advice.
I think I am getting on very well with my little gap/lab x. She has made a number of good live tracks and complete many laid tracks in good time and with accuracy. She is now only 7 months old so not wishing to push her too hard.
How ever she does show great promise. On two occasions now I have had reason to take the first deer and a second with a follow up shot. Although good shots the deer have run. Since I have the dog with me I have put her on the tracks.
On the first occasion she made a very convincing find of the first but then due to my mistake (I dragged the deer out to the edge of the wood) she didn't seem to understand there was another track/deer to find.
This was also the case last weekend where both deer ran. in a similar direction from very close to each other. On this occasion I left the first found in the wood and went back to the second shot site. There was very little sign of a hit but I knew the shot was good. Jet (the dog) just couldn't get a handle on a second track.
My question is how would you go about training her to go onto another track very soon after a successful track?
