    Seems like a lot of work just to familiarize Pup with one scenario. Better, I'd think, just to get Pup used to retrieving from a variety of them, some of which may only vaguely resemble the blinds...

    One of the frustrations of guiding in rice country is that most dogs from away will not hunt from the down position. Most of their owners claim their paragons will hunt however they're told to, but...

    I've only owned Avery and Cabela's vests, but one of the reasons I favor the Cabela's is its wide Velcro fastener that allows a good bit of adjustment for fit. You'll still want to get the correct...

    Given that a bazillion and twelve pointing dogs have managed to decipher "whoa" from "no," I'd not think Huey or Sidney particularly problematic.
