I was reading a thread on here and didn't want to hijack it so here's my question.
I have a 4 month old and I know FF is around the corner and will sneak up on me. I have a friend who had a really great dog, and now has that dogs grandson. They aren't titled or tested but they hunt like machines. As good of a hunting dog, and companion for that matter as I've seen with my own two eyes. Extremely obedient.
I asked him yesterday, when the time comes if he'd help me with FF and he told me he's never done it. He never had to. When he was training the dogs (and other dogs) he'd walk around and make them carry a bumper. If they dropped it, he made them pick it up and carry it. Is this a fluke? Did he just get lucky twice? Or are there dogs out there that will never need FF?
