Training Adana dewlaps

Hi guys

It would be really helpful If an experience dewlap keeper could explain how to train the young dewlaps in detail
Like kurt did with Taklas.

I have managed to fly my dewlap (6/7 month old) quite high and for about 10/15 min so far so good
But the problem is it doesn't respond when I wave my dropper.

It does come down when realise the other dewlap but like a normal pigeon WITHOUT DIVING

I know I'm doing something wrong so can someone help with some advise

Thanks

This is my first year with flying Adana's. First my birds came from Mehmet Serce, and he got his from Dick Taylor who imported them.
With my Doneks I am under the understanding that good ground work prior to them going up the first time is important. You must take small steps with these birds. This is let them go a little higher each time and then show the Dropper and if needed show more droppers. Never run out of droppers. These can be more Divers or whatever you are using for droppers.

The last time I flew was three days ago, nice cool day. The Doneks went up and I needed several droppers to bring them down. That day was the highest they went up. One three bird team was: one Black WF Adana with two Doneks they went up high and all came down together. The Adana was higher before the drop and she did come down first.

Some days the birds just don't want to come down! I am flying using my Donek method of training.

What training do you recommend for mastering the ground work? I want to do this properly as I'm new to flying pidgeons.
