Shooter gets the bird and gives it to the dog
Ekahi learning about the value of the shooter and trust
The goal here is to show Ekahi that the Handler/Shooter is valuable and possesses an important skill. I have the ability to help get the bird in her mouth. She has to understand that success will require that she cooperates, and stays in touch with the Handler/Shooter. We are a team and success is a joint effort, we need each others talents.
Just like in a pack of Coyotes or Wolves, each member of the pack has a job to do. They have to trust that each member will do their specific job and work as a team to be successful in the hunt or they don’t eat. Stay tuned for more on Ekahi’s progress.
Have a great day everyone
