    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...
  2. Honestly, I think it is likely that the litter is...

    Honestly, I think it is likely that the litter is more capable of producing a FC caliber dog than I am. I know I'm new to this, but it can't be often that a trainer is able to train his first pup to...

    Got a call from the breeder after the ultrasound today. Sounds like 9, possibly 10 pups. Surely one is bound to end up a black male?!? I'll keep my fingers crossed, but hopefully my first hunting...

    That's my plan. I would prefer not to have a hyper dog either, and my plan is to allow the breeder to choose the pup if possible. I want a black male, but aside from that, I'm going to tell the...

    Thanks. Yea, I believe out-cross breeding should be fine for my applications. I'm not looking for a hunting champion, just a loyal friend that will retrieve birds and enjoy fishing trips with me. :D...

    Can you elaborate on this? Not exactly sure what you're saying...

    Are you saying that it's a less predictable litter because the dogs in the pedigree aren't well-known? I'm not trying to...

    I appreciate it everyone. Yea, I haven't got to meet Mrs. Kirby in person yet but we have spoken multiple times on the phone and she seems like she really knows what she's doing and is very genuine...

    The pedigree was put up on the website whenever they decided to breed that dam with the sire listed. At that point, the female was not even pregnant yet. However, since then the breeding went as...

    Oh, forgot to mention. Here are health clearances and information for sire and dam.

    Sire:

  10. Thinking of Putting Deposit on First Hunting Pup *Pedigree*

    Hey guys. I've come a long way since I joined this forum and have been researching hard for a while now. I took some of your advice and turned my search away from an individual pup and more towards...

    I'd love to but I am currently without a pup. I am searching for my first hunting dog so it's an event that I'd love to make it to just to get advice from other experienced trainers... I might have...

    I suppose that could be true, assuming the same event will occur in following years. I'm just poking fun... I made T-Shirts one time that was for a "1st annual" golf tournament and all my buddies...

    Sorry for what I'm about to do but a lot of people are being very generous and sending me PM's to try to help me out and the board requires me to have 10 posts before I can reply to them so I need to...

    That is an interesting post. However, I am skeptical that the percentages truly work the way that the chart displays them. Essentially all they did was half the percentage contributed by the previous...

    As always I really appreciate the help fellas. See, it probably wouldn't have raised a flag for me that the breeding dog was only 14 months. Do you guys prefer 2+ years old for the dam, or older? As...

    Also, I just received some photos of the pedigrees from the seller. Check them out and let me know. From an uneducated viewer, it looks like the mother comes from a long line of show champions and...
