Thread: New Fox red puppy!!

  1. #1

    Default New Fox red puppy!!

    Hi my name is Nick I am new here. I just picked up my fox red lab on saturday and she is a beauty. We havent come up with a name yet. Any ideas? The fiance has ruled out red, ginger, foxy, honey, kimber (i like this one) and a few others people have thrown out. This picture is a couple weeks old so she is older and bigger now. Ill update the picture later. We are working on getting her on a schedule and crate trained. I am an avid deer hunter and I would really like to get more into bird hunting. If I want to train her to be a bird retriever where should I start? Ive trained dogs but none to be hunting retrievers.

    Welcome to RTF Nick. You are already doing the first thing - getting her on a schedule and crate training her, the next is formal obedience and getting her to want to chase bird wings and bumpers. I suggest you get either Jackie mertens DVD sound beginnings or Bill Hillmans training a retriever puppy DVD. If you can find a Retriever club in your area start hanging out with them and join the club there is usually a wealth of knowledge there. also you may want to buy a retriever training program by Evan Graham or Mike lardy both are very good. good luck with the pup.

    She is from gibson labradors in shoals indiana. Her father's name is flame and her mothers name is beauty. She was puppy number 5 so we tried 5 in other languages but i didnt like any of them.

    She's a beauty, You could call her "killy" for Killian's Irish Red.

    The dog in my avatar is a very dark fox red. His name is Master's Sienna Sun Trooper. I think the name "Sienna" would be fitting as it is her color and would also go nicely with "Flame".

    I used to be a decoy artist and I used a burnt umber shade (red) for the breast on the mallard drakes. "UMBER" for a call name could be a play on your pup's fox red color.
