Training your retriever to respond to hand signals should actually begin long before you take the dog hunting. You can start by using hand signals in combination with verbal cues when teaching basic obedience. For the "down" command, for example, say "down" and motion toward the floor with your hand open, palm down.
Lower your hand or point finger towards the ground. Some trainers exaggerate the gesture by starting with their hand held higher than normal. Hold your left arm straight so it is parallel to the floor. Slowly, move your arm in front of your body and touch your right shoulder with your left hand.
