there should be no reason to teach a dog to hunt close to you, that should be trained, and on a retrieve the dog should be sent down wind of the mark, stopped in a place where the dog will pick up the scent, watch the dog whilst its sat or stood, and you will soon see the dog change to the scent, then the dog should only need and "out" directional command, and it should pick up exactly what you are after.

Perhaps another example of transatlantic language barrier but what is the difference between "teach" and "train"?

I well remember having a bad moment in the kitchen then wondering why all the dogs scarpered... Hadn't realised what language I must use when dogs decide to do their own thing. :whistle:
In life, it is important to know when to stop arguing with people and simply let them be wrong.
