Hunting with Kepa , Higgins Gun Dogs
The Higgins Method is a steadiness strategy based on trust. Not obedience, e-collars, or whoa commands. Kepa demonstrates some intense mental steadiness to wing, shot, and fall on wild valley quail. Mental steadiness at this level can only be achieved by leaving the dog alone and trusting that he or she knows how to handle the situation. When a Higgins Gundog needs your help, it will ask for it. Then, you go and you do everything in your power to get that bird in his or her mouth. This is how a great hunting partnership between you and your dog is started.
Trust is a two way street. Be sure you show your dog that he or she can trust that you will do the right things to get that bird in his or her mouth. The dog will give you everything he or she has every time you go in the field . Aloha
