Thank you to all who have served
Not a matter of what age to train, it's a matter of what training is age appropriate.
Many start training their pups at 3 days of age with ENS.
As I posted in the "stick fetch" thread.
But what if the dog is not the best dog on the block? Gonna just put the dog down, or be open to try methods that you don't think are necessary with most dogs.
Stick fetch dates back as far as I...
Depends on where you shoot them.
I got spanked when my sister pasted the green stamps on the closet wall.
(course I was out back shootin' up a box of my dads 30-30 shells or I would have known that she was pasting green stamps on...
I'm just glad my kid can read those things, cuz I sure can't.
Or logic for that matter?
Great post Justin!
Burn the Koran if you want to see what the reaction would have been if it had been handled differently.
One thing that is a given in every series you will ever run. One dog will always get the easiest bird, and another the hardest. As a judge you simply judge the work being done at that moment.
Glad to see this chapter of American history finally come to an end.
To our young men and women in uniform -- WELL DONE
I would love to learn Len Ferucci's young dog program.
A guy has never handled a dog until they have done it with Don standing behind them! ;-)
I learned a lot from my dad who was good friends with Andy Devine and that croud (they even took me...
Bet the pup will pick it up if you toss it a few feet and forget to pinch the ear. (fun bumper)
When you put the bumper on the ground instead of having it in your hand you changed the rules, and the...
Looked to me like you already did.
I was not so much pointing out the merits of FF as I was pointing out the "incompleteness" of Milner's statements.
Well ya, my Beagles would require it because they are not retrievers, but that has nothing to do with why we FF a dog that fetches naturally. Milner gets lost in the fact that he can teach a...
That girl has a future!
Nothing wrong with "plenty of hunt". With practice their hunt will become more efficient and they will need less of it.
My experience with the phrags is that half the time, even if it is a mark, the...
If the dog can carry the line on a mark, it can (and will with practice) do the same on a blind.
As you are well aware, you will not be correcting the dogs line once it is into the phrags. So the...
Train in standing corn fields. Remember that success is built on success, so crossing one row of corn is a good place to start. Add difficulty (crossing more rows) as the dog progresses. The reward...
Yes, my dog will take a cast at 300 yards, BUT, do you really think I would be able to see that bird laying on the ground from 300 yards away? Best I can do is handle the dog to the aria of the fall....
Not sure where you hunt, but sometimes a blind is -- well -- kinda blind.
Dogs deserve to be taught a complete set of skills if you want a good hunting companion.
BTW, it's easier to train a dog...
It showed up on a canned hunt that Chris went on. He probably remembers the guys name, I believe the dog was called "Chief".
The black missing the front leg in the video (that we can't find)...
You mean like?
Chris can tell you all about that hunting trip.
There is also a U-Tube clip on here somewhere of a 3...
That's allright, your input is always welcome.
