Having recently bought a 3 year old cocker which I had been told had been working , I have been getting some training in; she hunts nice and close and is very obedient , a great retriever of dummies and will retrieve a fur dummy although a little reluctant at first , she now does well on fur.
However on putting a pheasant pelt on the dummy she refuses to touch it, switched to a single wing on dummy and she will retrieve it , however she sometimes tries to pull the wing off , also doesn’t like the wing in her mouth particularly , trying to lift the dummy side , any ideas on getting her keen on feather?
