18 Month GSP Still Not Holding Point
Looking for some help if possible. My 18 mo. old pointer hasn't developed a good point discipline yet. She was a young pup last season and she got a lot of exposure to both pen raised and wild birds. My hunt partner has 3 GSP's and they all point and honor like champs. My hope has been that my dog would follow their lead but she still tends to barge into the party when they are locked up. On a preserve hunt last week she did show some MINOR improvement but I'd like to know if there is something else I can do in training to reinforce the hold vs just keep her on as many wild birds as possible. If anyone has a suggestion I'm all ears. Thanks in advance.
