Jorge ------ watch this movie ---- my gsp holds till the shot --- my friend's setter is walking in on the birds,,, he had just finished telling the dog to whoa. Notice at the end my friend shouts 'good boy' at his setter. The point is, I think you will need to let your friends shoot and you work your elect collar during the hunt till your dog does whatever it is that you want. Yard training is a good start, but in hunting there are so many distractions -- other dogs, other hunters, other men talking to their dogs, etc, no matter how good the yard training you will probably need refinement while hunting.
I dont see how to put the movie, so I"Ll put the drop box link if you want to see it.
