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.
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.
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.
