First Place, First Time!! Hunting Dog Retrieve Trial Using Dog Training Genesis Training Videos
I started Duke Ferguson’s Dog Training Genesis on line video training course with my 18 month old dog.
My dog is a Hungarian wire haired Vizsla. I am training him to be a hunting dog to compete in hunting tests.
He did have some kind of basic obedience skills before we started all this. But not steady or to a high level needed for competing in these tests.
Duke Ferguson gives you all the tools, knowledge and skill to train your dog successfully. It is your job as a dog owner to be consistent in your training and to find a good balance in your dog’s working attitude (keep him happy while training). Dukes training style does exactly that.
My main focus was on steadiness on one hand and swift responses on commands on the other hand. And this should all be off-leash.
While Duke´s program is not a specific hunting dog training program, I found it of no trouble to adapt Duke´s techniques to train a hunting dog. The same principles applied.
After a mere 3 months of training, we entered last weekend our very first hunting working test.
45 other dogs entered as well. The goal in this competition is getting all 10 retrieves while the dog remains perfectly steady and off-leash all the time. No barking or peeping is allowed. Touching your dog is a no-no too.
Handling your dog with whistle and hand signals is a must.
Result; while my dog was the youngest! dog competing and only 7% of the dogs got all 10 retrieves, my little guy left all the other dogs thinking….
He finished 1st. You can imagine how proud I am of my little guy!
Thank you Duke for giving me the right direction.
