Barks at my Yelps

Postby charlie elk » June 14th, 2011, 6:10 am

Bit of problem with Vic.
My pup thankfully barks at turkeys, their sounds and when they flush. He'll lay flat on the ground next to me (very good) but when I call he barks (not so good). Will he grow out of this or do I need to somehow put a stop to it now?
I like him barking at flushing turkeys so I don't want to do anything that discourages it.
Suggestions?
later,
charlie

tell Vic the command QUITE !!!!and if you have to cut a switch to tap not beat him with it on  his nose ....if the dog is six months old a E collard can be used make sure you use the command QUITE first if he continues then nick him , remember keep a strong hand your the alpha male not Vic .....good luck

Vic on his own decided to quit barking at my calls and unfortunately he no longer barks at the turkeys on flush. 
Do you think he will start barking again on flush when I shoot one?  Maybe that will cause enough excitement for him. 
Perhaps I have been giving him too much "practice setup" training.  He may have learned when he is quiet then turkeys come close and transferred that to flush time.

Come on fall,
