    I have a extremely high octane dog as you could imagine steadying a dog like this is tricky. The very best thing I did for the dog is take him dove hunting on a small field (about 1 acre) with 2...

    Good lord, I believe you guys are over reacting a little bit. I agree the shock collar and the barn cat are probably not the best idea but dang.

    I would just leash the dog and socialize them in a...

    It's always easy for people to point out the answer isn't it. I am aware that the dog should do what you say and I corrected it with "load up, nick" and it fixes the problem. I was just letting the...

    I have a stubborn male too. He shoots out of the kennel and off the tail gate faster than you can blink, but when it's time to stop fun and go home, he all of a sudden gets real sluggish and...

    Well it's going to be 3 other guys so I will definitely have him tied to a lead to keep him from breaking. The field is big enough so we aren't sitting on top of each other. Definitely going to hunt...

    That would be okay for me too if my dog had a hold on what the deal was. The first hunts are the most important. I want to make sure he understands that we are out there to kill. I guess a good...

    All the dove hunting talk.

    Considering taking my almost 18 month old BLM this weekend. He went duck hunting 3 times last year when he was 8 months but as you could imagine he didn't take a lot from it. The dog is at a point...

    I too experience this "erratic off" day sometimes. I honestly believe that training too much has something to do with it. It's like they just get tired of the routine.

    If you have never duck hunted it is hard to say what you will want in a dog. Once you go through a season with the dog, you will start to realize what it is you expect out of the dog and what it is...

    Primer Poppers

    Seems like if you shot a lot of primer poppers around the dog that it would startle the dog when a live round went off. Any truth to this or is the guy that told me that a little off? I can see both...
