Focus on command ~ the whistle stop

~ SHR LAKE C HAFFEE'S AUTUMN LEGACY O' TRAD FINIAN MAC JH ~ "

Me 20 month old Labrador Retriever gun dog trainee MAC is seen during a "whistle stop" whilst we were hunting pheasants. MAC has been trained to immediately face in me direction and SIT upon hearing a single peep on me whistle. Whilst in the SIT, he is to maintain that position and intensive visual focus on me until the next command is given, verbally, a whistle signal is blown, or a gestural cue is given to him to release him from the SIT and to send him in a specified direction.

Communication betwixt meself and me dogs can be by verbal command, whistle signal, or completely silent as directed by gestural cues that they have been trained to respond to. MAC is advancing through his training continually and with great progress being made.

MAC is a quick study and is truly a great deal of fun to watch whilst he is working afield.

Cheers,
THE DOG WHISTLER ☘🇮🇪🇺🇸

I agree with this post, a whistle stop has been one of the most effective and used commands while a field with my red lab Winnie.
