 time by chasing the reflection, I began to shine the flashlight beam on the floor or wall. I then incorporated this with a method of teaching hand signals, called 'baseball,' which is outlined in the GAME DOG book."
"I used the flashlight variation of this at home, since Mackie liked to chase the light. It also fits well into my limited time for daylight training sessions. The dog loves to do it, and it has been a big help in repeating commands and learning signals."
Mike took Mackie with him everywhere he could. "I wanted to expose her to many different situations and different surroundings. This is emphasized in the GAME DOG book. It makes her less spooky when being around other people and other dogs. I feel this really helped her get along when hunting with other dogs."
Although the first season was pretty successful for the dog, there was still some more work to do as the dog got older, but many of the weak spots were soon worked out after the first season.
Young dogs can do a pretty good job of hunting, if you "plan the work," and then "work the plan." It takes time, consistency, repetition, and patience. And also, if the dog is attracted to flashlights, you can even work in a little "night baseball."
