Training With Non-Hunting Dogs Around
Hey guys. As you may have seen in my other thread, I'm in the process of getting my first hunting pup. My concern is that I also have 1.5 year old husky that is just a family pet. She is an outside dog, as my lab would be as well. They would be contained to the yard via our electronic containment system, except of course when we go for daily runs and such... My question though is this. Do you guys that have other family pets always take your hunting dogs somewhere else to train in order to avoid distractions and such, or is it a non-issue for you? I love my husky and she loves me, but she's a little too "prissy" for me. I tell people that she's my wife's dog. I'm getting this lab to be "my boy" and am just wondering what kind of issues to expect while trying to train him with a non-hunting dog around potentially teaching bad habits or being a distraction.
