0:57 Hey, a lot of guys that are using retrievers for ruffling birds are going to love this drill. What I'm going to do is, I'm going to put down just like I did right here a clipped wing pigeon and I'm going to develop my dog's nose; I'm going to develop his hunt drive; but most importantly, I'm going to develop a hard flush. Now whether you're doing a retriever springer spaniel or any flushing breed, by putting down clipped wing pigeons, letting your dog work into him, rush in and catch that bird, you're going to develop a lot stronger flush. And that's what we're really looking at for retrieving breeds.
1:32 So what I want to do right now, I'm going to go get my dog out, work him into the wind, let him come in, get that scent, charge in, grab that bird and we're going to have a great flush starting to develop.
