    Keep in mind that in order to get the pup at 4 months, that means getting the vaccination at 12 weeks. I personally wait as long as I can for rabies vac. Never for a 12 week pup.

    I've spent hours and hours, year after year, looking into what's being bred. Price has never factored into my decision on a litter. Price really isn't something I need to know until I've decided...

    Getting dog to focus on marks

    I have an 8 month old puppy. I wouldn't say he's totally "finished" with force fetch, but he's far enough along that he will pretty reliably retrieve on command.

    He's just recently started...

    I tell the dog to sit, open their mouth with one hand, tip the bottle with the other hand so they get a couple of gulps. I've had to do it many times over the years, never had anything close to a...

    I would doubt other people would even realize there was a dog in the vehicle. When my doors are shut nobody knows I have dogs in the back.

    Actually, it was directed at the OP, is he looking just at the names in the first few generations, or is he looking at the numbers of the COI. For a thread on line breeding, I was surprised to see...

    My dog knows what it means to retrieve and is generally eager to do it, but it occasionally will choose not to pick it up. For instance, took him out to a field for some hand thrown marks, he ran...
  10. Question on Bill Hillmann's fetch command

    I watched both the puppy DVD and the Fetch Command DVD. I don't feel like he really addressed what to do if the dog *didnt* retrieve the item. Did I miss something there? Let's say the dog goes...

    When I'm in the middle of FF training, i do fun stuff with the bumper but only at the level they are at in the force training so I can back it up if needed. So once the dog is through FF just taking...

    Same thing here, my pup didn't get to see water until he was 5 months, but he took to it immediately and was doing marks with perfect swimming form

    Tony, the other post you are thinking of was by someone else, not me. My question is more theoretical - I have a junior level dog that doesn't handle yet.

    Improving marking/memory skills

    Not for my dog, for me! How do you guys remember exactly where the bird fell to be able to handle on marks? The best I can do is remembering a general area, but not a specific spot. I should have...

    Transporting live birds

    I'm looking at picking up a couple of live birds for the first time, my dog's never had seen a live one. When I go to pick them up, what do I put them in to get them home/training ?

    I don't think it "proves" anything, but I think the same could be said about a lot of titles. IMO, hunt test titles themselves mean little in terms of what the dog is made of, but the process of...
