Martha and Sophia, Higgins Gundog and Handler

Here is a recent video of HGDH Martha Zimet and her dog HGD Sophia. They both recently received their Higgins Gundog certifications. Martha stopped by for a few days earlier this month to handle Sophia in some new and challenging hunting scenarios. Birds are the real trainers and nothing better than covies of chukar to season a dog.

Here is an important comment taken from the video: Higgins Gundogs are more than physically steady, they are mentally steady. When a dog reaches this level, it’s important to understand that a different type of handling is required. Quiet, calm and unhurried. You’re not enforcing obedience, you’re simply helping the dog by managing the excitement level of the hunt.
