Higgins Gundogs, Steadiness Taught by the Birds

Did a short video in the field today. This was our third session with this pup. Here he is learning that steadiness around birds, not chasing, increases his odds of success. My “alright” cue gives him permission to help me flush the bird if he likes. No chasing until my “hunt dead” (retrieve) cue . He’s coming along nicely.
