Video: A Gun Dog's Perspective
By Chad Love
A couple cool videos for your Tuesday viewing pleasure.
First up is Sugar, the GoPro-wearing yellow lab we first saw on this awesome dog's-eye-view duck-hunting video.
Well, Sugar is back and this time she's on a field goose hunt. The footage isn't as steady as the duck hunt, obviously because Sugar is running rather than swimming, but it's still neat to see a hunt and the resulting retrieve (Watch out for those cripples, Sugar.) from the dog's perspective.
Next up is a textbook example of a pointing dog superbly trained to be steady to wing and shot. You may recall my blog post a few weeks back where I asked English setter trainer/breeder Scott Berg what to look for in a started dog.
Here's a short video of one of Scott's dogs demonstrating steadiness to wing and shot
Pretty as a picture...
