    Default new guy, saying hi

    hey everyone, new to the site, kinda new on dogs. i have a 10 mo old black lab, who i am attempting to train for birds. ( ducks, geese, pheasant and grouse) my main emphasis is on water retrieves. so far he has been doing well. i am kinda looking for a professional trainer, or an experienced training partner in southern new england, so if anyone here is interested in teaching someone new to the training process, id really appreciate it!!

    good hunting!!!

    hello Phil and welcome. Southern New England ay? Your water is liquid, here in Northern New England our water is still solid. Anyway, maybe somebody from Yankee Waterfowlers retriever club will respond. A great many knowledgeable folk in that club.

    Welcome and enjoy.
    This must be like the baby boomer generation for RTF because we have had more folks join in the last week than I recall in a long time.

    Welcome to RTF.

    You know what they say about publicity?

    Even bad can be good.
