I take 2-4 dogs, hunt 1or 2 at a time .
The dog I want to "range" out, I'll put a little want to in them by lineing them up w/the other dog(s), as if I'm going to let it go, but I don't cut it loose.
Once the dog(s) r out of sight I'll take that dog and put it back in the box.
I average 4 drops a nite, so it'll get put back in the box 4 times for 2-4 nites.
That's the extent of it's training xposure for awhile.
On the last nite of this training, on the last drop of the nite and at a woods u know that a dog has to range out I'll drop it. If it comes back put it in the box .
Go home or drop ur other dogs if u got sum.
Like I said it takes patience, & no need for a heavy hand .
Done with consistency u will soon have a dog u wished didn't go that far....
Or if u don't wanna do that.....then try this, every time the dog comes back, that dog is DONE for the nite.
P.S......If your walk hunting this dog u need to stop that.
