Holding an Area / Hunt Whistle

Holding an area is when the dog, at your hunt whistle, “activates” its nose and starts to hunt a small area just around its feet until it finds the dummy or game. Holding an area is a part of the casting/blindretrieve, that is when we’ve directed the dog to the correct area we ask it to hunt there until it finds something. On this page you’ll find all our blog posts on holding an area, the hunt whistle and the training of it.

Good luck with your training!
