Thread: Do you stalk with your BMH's etc?

  1. #1

    Do you stalk with your BMH's etc?

    Can I ask those that have the specialist breeds (BMHs etc) how many stalk with them (to heel) Vs keep them in the kennel/house for follow ups?
    I have a young cocker (bird dog) that will follow up if needed but is too fizzy to stalk with and I miss the nose/ears/eyes of the GWP I used to have. The latter was an all-rounder but with the cocker for shotgun shooting now I could have a specialist hound potentially.
    Thanks

    My HS stalks with me to heal very well. But so did my GWP and any other dog I have owned and trained to do that.

    she will sometimes be left in the truck though depending on where I intend stalking for the next couple of hours.

    You don't have to look at one of the specialist breeds though, a lab from tracking lines or a GWP for example will do exactly the same job for you 95% of the time...

    Nick mine goes everywhere with me This is a clip off my phone with indy stalking reds

    she is happy when with me and is working well, she does have faults don't get me wrong as she can mess about if i go out with someone else stalking she tries to compete for attention and wants to speed up but this is her still being a teenager and young when we are on our own she is very steady and stays to heal well and a joy to be with, I like her company and she knows far in advance of me if we are close to deer in cover, I would think though that most dogs do this, atb wayne

    My BMH walks to heel when im stalking no problem. I have a jagare lead (if thats how you spell it) but don't need to use it anymore.

    My Weimaraner bitch mostly stalks with me, mostly walking just behind me, but she is an all round working dog and has bumped a few deer when stalking, but has also indicated a few that I would have missed. It's a case of being switched on and reacting to the dogs behaviour before the dog knows what it intends to do itself, if that makes sense.

    That is really just a question of Training, not a question of the breed....

    I finally managed to get Alba to stalk next to my heel, an E-collar helped a lot...

    E-Collor ... Don't mention such things on SD, everyone on here are expert dog
    trainers, and would never admit to the use of such devices.

    ...so why is this... Do they not know how to use them properly...?
    For my dog it was the final try to get her under control and it worked out perfectly!

    I used one on my Jack Russell bithch (rescued from Dogs Trust) and she had zero recall and after eveything went for an E collar and the results were textbook and she's been perfect ever since even when she gets excited and starts chasing rabbits. As long as you use then properly they're just another tool in the training book. Can't guarantee they'll work for every dog but I'm a supporter.

    I'm not entirely sure, I personally don't have a problem with them and as the lad above
    pointed out I think they certainly have a place used in certain circumstances.
