Has no one you no got a dog that is running the lamp? If so let the pup watch and run with a older dog and take it from there

Hiya like what was said above the dog certainly needs to be out more and with the help of watching an older dog on the lamp, it will create more determination when he/she has to watch the other dog chase but can't get out to it, a good windy night and if your lucky enough to walk up on a rabbit in the form with your young dog on the slip you'll be away on a hack, it just clicks with some dogs quicker, also try to make sure the dog is actually looking at the beam.moving the dogs head while the lamp goes around the field helps me at times just until they cop what's moving!!:) hope this little essay helps ha!!:)

take the dog out in the day on rabbits, and show him rabbits in the night. dogs all have a pack mentality so show the dog other dogs retrieving on a lamp and that ma help
