    Who is joking? A proper forced fetched and obedience trained dog will only go when sent and will not eat birds. Train with chickens. The dog has holes in its obedience and ff.

    MMM, Makes me want to have fried chicken for dinner. My dogs trap the young one all the time. They bring them to me and I throw them back over the fence. The older chickens have caught on and fly way before they get there. Sound like the dog is left to do it'd own thing. That the problem.

    Retrievers are supposed to be soft mouthed, they are not supposed to kill-bite. Those genes are supposed to have been bred out of them.

    They are. Take 9 0f 10 Labradors out of the show ring and they will not pick up a live bird to save their souls

    Every bird must be properly introduced. By definition this is a hole in their training. What FC owner lets their dogs roam unattended to kill livestock anyways? Is there an FC eater at your house you refer to specifically? What do most dogs do with their first live shot chukar?

    I would be willing to bet that half the field in the National Open last month has never seen a Chuckar
