GUN DOGS TRAINING
Any serious fault in a test will mean a zero score for that particular part of the competition.
Whether the judge allows a gundog to continue the particular retrieve(s) after a misdemeanour or failure is entirely up to the judge.
But if you allow your dog to be rewarded by getting the retrieve immediately after it has made a noise, surely that reinforces the behaviour and makes it more likely to recur?
If it was one of my gun dogs, I would call it in straight away, hence removing the chance of it gaining pleasure after the crime.
Think what you would do in training. The squeak has earned a zero mark, so why continue?
