Can it be too easy?

Can it be too easy?

When Tassla was a puppy I didn’t know that much about hunting with spaniels. I did a lot of obedience training at that time, but I had started to get an interest in hunting. However, I didn´t now what kind of qualifications or basic skills a hunting dog should have....

Take the first one!

Take the first one!

If there are more than one dummy out there in a field Quling gladly picks up one, then changes his mind, and picks up another one. That’s why I have done a lot of exercises to teach him to take one and then deliver that one to me – and not take another one. The...

Train one thing at a time

Train one thing at a time

I continue my journey through the archives and found this training session with Tassla when she was quite young. The other day I was out in the meadow training with Tassla. I placed Tassla on her pause station, a blanket by my backpack, walked out a bit and threw...

Casting training for rookies

Casting training for rookies

Working on directional skills and casting is so much fun! Being able to send the dog to run straight out from my side, to the left or right, or to turn and run in the opposite direction (push backs) feels awesome and fun. If you want to be able to trial with your...

Can something simply be too easy?

Can something simply be too easy?

When Tassla was a puppy, I didn’t know much about hunting with a spaniel. I was completely wrapped up in competitive obedience with a growing interest in hunting, but I had no idea of which qualities or foundation skills I wanted in a hunting dog. However, Tassla was...

We are clicker trainers

We are clicker trainers

We started our publishing company Klickerförlaget eight years ago because we wanted to publish our own book "Retrieving for All Occacsions" in Swedish - but rather quickly the publishing house developed into something more. We want to spread knowledge about positive...

Breathe! Count to three!

Breathe! Count to three!

This is a text addressed to myself. But I think you might recognize yourself too 😉 This text is about breathing when casting. Sounds easy? I find it terribly difficult sometimes. Maybe it's the control freak in me that loses control - I don't know. But when my dog is...

Casting is so much fun!

Casting is so much fun!

Besides the actual hunting with a spaniel - which when it flows is an experience that's hard to beat - I really enjoy working on casting. I think I enjoy it so much because it's possible to vary that training indefinitely. It's just one's own imagination that puts an...

Train your dog to take game

Train your dog to take game

A while ago, I decided to teach Totte, almost nine years old, to retrieve game. Once, a long time ago, maybe when he was about a year old, we actually trained a little with game. One might say that he was curiously skeptical. I got my breakthrough when I used his...

“Time to prove yourself!”

“Time to prove yourself!”

Imagine that you are taking a class with your dog. Some of the participants are very experienced, others have some experience, someone is completely new to the whole thing, have just begun this training and are new owners of a retrieving breed. Some know each other...

Just laugh it off

Just laugh it off

One of the most important building blocks in our training philosophy is that we are looking for the good stuff that the dog does so that we can reward that. There's something a little magical about that, because it rubs off on everything. Suddenly you notice that...

Piece of Cake

Piece of Cake

It took almost six months before the day came when Flippa did not listen to the recall whistle, but simply ran in the other direction – towards the cat poop. I was surprised – I had become so spoiled by almost everything coming so easily with this dog. Never...
