    That sounds excellent! Great when 2 dogs can work together...I don't really have that honour with Benson, although Bramble is very good. I don't though work them unless I have a helper as it is not really fair on Bramble.
    Hunting with the stop...would like to see that! SWMBO was just saying we need not be afraid of using the stop whistle, especially with labs (talking in the context of hunting with HPR's vs labs in a test scenario)

    I find with Riley who doesn't have as strong a stop as Obi that if I wait til he's facing me, even though his nose is down, he will stop and look. He must be flicking a glance at me or the movement of raising my arm draws his attention. If he's within 50m or we've been doing lots of handling he'll stop when he's facing in any direction. Waiting til they're facing can be a stepping stone to stopping anywhere.
