any advice on stopping a dog during a shoot from chasing Hares and Rabbits ?. Appreciate i need to stop him before he goes but it's not always possible in the beating line. He is also still pretty young , 22 months and full of beans and testosterone !!!!

A good gundog should sit and stay until instructed to retreive and respond to a recall or
As you are aware there is no place for a loose dog on a shoot.
good luck , it may be easier than you think

This does not replace the training you should do for a well manored gun dog. But for breaking him of chasing unwanted game, this should do it. Just take him where he'll find a hare to chase. As soon as he shows any inclination to chase, light him up. Assuming all your retrieving work is after the shot. He'll figure out what not to do, pretty easily.

cONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT SO YOU CAN TEACH HIM RIGHT FROM WRONG.
oF COURSE THE EASIEST WAY IS TO MAKE SURE HE IS STEADY BEFORE YOU TAKE HIM OUT, BUT YOUR PAST THAT.
gET HIM TO SIT, STAY THEN IF HE MOVES ONCE THE DUMMY IS LET GO, SIT HIM BACK IN THE EXACT SPOT AND REPEAT UNTILL HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS TO DO. tHEN SLOWLY PROGRESS TOWARDS GETTING HIM BACK OUT.
I realise I am typing in capitals but cant be arsed to write this agin.
