@Ravenbird - I saw your post after I answered Rits. This is why. We're working on rewarding him only after he gives a physical indication with his paws.Now, has he always been lax on indicating or only lately? So interesting to learn from this in a training perspective since he is highly titled in BH!
He was more aggressive on the tube before the Gabapentin episode. I told in detail earlier how he was prescribed Gabapentin for a licking granuloma and he mellowed out so much he completely stopped hunting. We're on the rebound from that incident which lasted at least four months. Note the four month gap in his Masters scores from June, 2020 to October, 2020.. He's back hunting again and is very good finding rats. He's just not telling me the way he used to. I'm working with him to once again give strong indications. He needs to work more than once a week, but I can't afford more lessons and my wife won't let me have any rats.
