Hey guys im new to the forum this is my first post after reading threads here for months. I'm going to be getting a lab in early 2014 and im just doing as much research as I can on training. I grew up with springers my whole life but this will be the first dog that will be my own and I'll train myself. I hunt both upland and waterfowl, and id say I have my time divided between the 2 pretty evenly, so I'm looking for a program that trains for both.
Im trying to decide on a training program and have no idea where to start. Ive heard alot about the smart fetch and fowl dawgs, but I understand that these are more geared towards guys the pretty much only hunt migratory, would this be a program that would benefit the upland hunter as well, or would you suggest something else? Any advice would be greatly appreciated
