Here is one of our black pointer pups, Olive, in the field today during one of our training hunts. Here, she finds a bird and waits for us to catch up. Once we arrive, I get the shooter (Reagan) in place and give Oliver her Flush/Stop cue. She did her beautiful aggressive flush to present the bird to the guns, but the bird refused to fly. So what does she do? She stops, resets and waits to be cued again. She does a second flush on cue and stops. She is then sent for the retrieve. Dogs are pretty smart if you trust them and give them the freedom to make decisions.
