Higgins Gundogs, Fixing Problems: Blinking Birds

Here are some updated videos showing  “before” and “after” rehabilitation work.

9/9/15. Here is a 2 year old GSP a client brought in today. A breeder/trainer gave the dog to my client. This video was filmed during our first session. As you’ll see in the video, the dog was nervous and unhappy in the field, wouldn’t hunt and was blinking or avoiding birds. I was asked if I could get the dog happy, hunting and loving birds. With the Higgins Method, I had it done the next day. It took 3 sessions to isolate the problem and fix it. The results are shown in the following video “Higgins Gundogs, Fixing Problems: Blinking Birds (After)”

I will have a video up soon showing the entire process step by step. Thanks for watching.

Here is that 2 year old GSP the client brought in yesterday. This video was filmed during our third session. Now a happy, bold, confident dog that even has a natural retrieve. Can’t argue with success (although some will try) : )

  1. Taking our dog to Higgins Gundogs was absolutely amazing! It was so interesting and rewarding to all concerned. Gretchen was a nervous and unhappy dog in the field. After three sessions with Higgins, she was retrieving, relaxed and having a great time. We can’t wait to take Gretchen back for another session in two weeks. You really must experience it. He has the best program for dogs out there.

  2. Wow that’s really something! Great work.
