    I had last pick of the litter on my pup, so I guess I let the others choose for me. However, he's nearly 11 weeks now and I couldn't be happier with him thus far. Birdy, fearless, and smart as can...

    Thanks for the help guys. I've searched craigslist and without driving a couple hours one way there isn't much to be found, except racing pigeons for $20/piece. I guess I'm just going to wait until...

    Use of Various Birds For Bird Intro?

    Hey guys. I have a 10 week old BLM that has been introduced by the breeder to live pigeons at around 8 weeks. He did great with those and was very eager to chase them down. Now that I have brought...

    Pulling hard for my UK Wildcats to make a bowl this season. I don't care if it is the "This Is The Worst Bowl In The Country Bowl" as long as we find a way to get to 6 wins. We need to win the games...

    I think my philosophy is going to be to allow Chance to socialize with dogs that I know and trust, but keep him away from areas with lots of dogs that I don't know. I know the neighbors lab has been...

    Thanks. Yes, I had someone else mention that to me and I was glad they did because it's something I hadn't given much thought to. He got his vaccinations at 6 weeks and we go this Friday for his 9...

    Am I Overdoing It?

    I have a 9 week old pup and have been doing what I can to socialize him with as much as possible. He has gone everywhere with me when I'm not at work, and has already got to experience a variety of...

    The more I talk to the breeder the more confident I feel that I may be getting a good fit at a fair price. By the sounds of it the sire is a bit high-powered while the dam is on the cooler side. She...

    Going to meet the breeder tomorrow afternoon. As long as I'm satisfied with the interest the pup shows in birds, I'll be bringing him home with me. Excitement is building! :D

    Thoughts On This Pup's Pedigree?

    Hey fellas,

    Admittedly I am not great at valuing a pup's worth based on his or pedigree so I thought I would turn to the experts on here. I am looking primarily for a hunting companion and family...

    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...

    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...

    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...
