I was advised by the chap I started out having gundog training with to get a 210.5 and I remember the lady in Sporting Saint being surprised when I went to buy one and saying that's usually for spaniels. I often wonder about trying a 211.5, would it make any difference to her do you think?Get an Acme 211 1/2 for a labrador/retriever. The 210 1/2 is traditionally used by spaniel handlers
Just been having a think, it's a year now !Did you go straight into gun dog work at your first session, or did the trainer do what mine has done and check how much other 'basic' stuff Cassie had first?
I'm sure that's a good idea, gives you all a chance to see where you're at, as it were. As I say, I still have issues with Cass and other dogs, but there are signs she is improving. It wouldn't be a problem in daily life, it's manageable, but is when GD training, especially if a new dog is there, initially. I have a trainer coming to help me soon.I asked for a couple of sessions on our own because Molly is so desperate to play with other dogs, all sense goes out the window and she ignores me so, hopefully, at some point our trainer will tell me Molls is ready to join a group.
