The Higgins method is unique, in that we allow the dog to flush the bird on our verbal cue, (flushing before the cue is not allowed) , followed by a stop to flush,(chasing after the flush is not allowed). Here are a couple of videos of Kepa demonstrating the Higgins Method flush/stop strategy on wild Valley Quail. Wow, what a beautiful thing to watch any dog do. The Higgins Method. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.
