Braque du Bourbonnais

Moving up the scent

Version française

This phase of the dog's work isn't always necessary, it can happen that the dog goes directly from searching to pointing.

At all events, when the dog smells the bird but it still seems far away, he stops his search to move up this scent more or less directly, until the smell becomes stronger, and he is sure that there is a bird; he stops and stands still, pointing.
