Our new pup (9 months) is proving to be much more difficult to train than our first. Basic OB took a while and during CC to here, she had a very high tolerance to stimulation. She is super high energy and comes out of Yelowstone's TNT Explosion (Nitro) lines. Lots of potential I would hate to miss out on as a rookie trainer.
I've been thinking about sending her to a pro to get her through FF, handling & blinds. The goal is an awesome waterfowl hunting partner.
The family and I are a bit concerned with the months she will be away. Does it have any negative impact on bonding? My guess is we are looking at 4 months or more depending...
