My 2.5-year-old female GWP is only sight pointing since a pup. I thought this will change with time but is doesn't. How to train her to point with scent only? Confused

Dogs generally aren't born sight pointers so the question has to be how has she learned to be a sight pointer? I think we all will nedd to know this before any suggestions can be made. Exactly what does she do when she "makes"scent on a bird?

I'm really sorry for not posting so long! Excuse me. For my dog's training - she's obedience-trained and nothing more. I just wanted to see if she'll made a gundog. I went in the fields where there are birds and let her play. Later she saw a bird then pointed it. I went closer to the dog so the bird scared and flew away. And she chased it until I called her back. I see her she smells the birds - she runs slower and she moves her nostrils then gets closer, points, pounces near the bird and chases it. Can I train her to hold the point?

How many wild birds have you shot for her?
