Level 2 German Shorthaired Pointer Gundog Training Videos
These videos illustrate some of the activities on the Aytee GSPs Level 2 Training Progamme. You may have moved further forward in some aspects or be behind in others, dont worry, every single combination of dog, owner, facilities, time etc etc is different, take it at your own pace.
Training a German Shorthaired Pointer to do an early Water Retrieve.
Care must be taken in letting the young German Shorthaired Pointer off the lead so he cannot run out of control.
Throwing Dummies and not retrieving is an important part of retriever training for any gundog but especially an HPR dog like the German Shorthaired Pointer.
This kind and gentle method of teaching your dog to hold a dummy simply needs patience and a sympathetic approach. Once learnt and established over time the habit of carrying gently will transfer to game in the field.
Stop whistle training must be methodical and not rushed. It is not just about your whistle. How you behave when your dog is free will have a great effect on the result.
In this video Jerzi's keen approach to retrieving has allowed her to moved forward quickly but I must still be careful to keep her calm and confident. There is no Age = Level of training rule, because every dog is different. Work at the speed you feel is right.
