Yeah, I knew that subject line would get you.
Okay, say your dog training money was absolutely unlimited. You have a brand new 8 week old pup out of awesome field lines. You're planning to train him yourself, and you have access to awesome training grounds, but you have zero equipment right now.
What do you buy?
What about birds/bumpers? You have an eight week old puppy here. When do you start him on birds? What kind do you use? Frozen or fresh? Ratio of birds to bumpers? How do you use birds differently as he ages and becomes more advanced?
