The advance is how a standing dog points to the wild. Usually, the characteristic pose in which the dog is completely stretched with a foreleg up high. Yes, that’s an advance, but it’s not the case that the foreleg should always be up. What actually happens is when the dog gets a spray drift in the middle of a step.
With a fast dog, the game will often be surprised by the dog and lay down on the ground as flat as possible (press). In the meantime, a dog must radiate such an authority that the wildness does not dare to move and stays where it is. (One sometimes claims that the dog is hypnotizing the game).
A young and/or inexperienced dog will initially also advance on walking trails and hot spots (place where the game has just been). However, it is desirable that the dog is in places where 100% sure game-birds are present. Although advance by itself should always be present (advance is almost impossible or not possible at all to teach), the hunter will have to make the dog clear that it is not desirable that the dog advance, in, for example, hot spots. This is to be done by placing the young dog under the game and praising him until he falls down. This does not seem to be difficult, but this is not a simple task for the hunter, even though it is often necessary to drive from field to field and the fact that many kilometers are often worn to train the dog.
