    Default NFC Prize Puppies - Encouraging the Chase...

    Step No. 1 - get the puppy to chase something. In this case a rolled up sock.

    Have a look...

    Normally I start this in the hallway giving the pup only one way to go. But this worked out pretty well!

    Very nice video. I start my pups out as a group around five weeks old and then start doing them individually after that. Usually when one pup wants something they all want it.

    Had one that as a puppy, imprinted on a sock/toy (aspirin bottle filled with pea-gravel stuffed into a sock). The "sock monster" that lives inside your dryer,never stood a chance as long as she was around,was like that all of her life. She would find single socks you didn't even know you owned!

    Well, we sold a male pup yesterday to a couple that originally wanted a female.
    I was going to keep a male, but I am willing to keep the female if some one wants the male.
    Regardless, need to sell one more pup, they are ready to go home this Saturday.
    These pups are real Hot Rods and smart as a whip!!!
