    An old friend of mine who had an informally trained retriever that once ate a dove on an afternoon hunt would say "feed him before training".

    I had a lab once that was a great dog. Picked up everything I shot. Trailed cripples like Sherlock Holmes trailed Moriarty. I shot a limit of doves one day (12 back then). The dog rode up front with me in those days. I stopped at the store on the way home and then proceeded on my way. When I got home I took the birds out to clean them and there were only 8. I looked everywhere in that truck and no birds. Only one explanation for where they went. He never ate another bird before or since, but I didn't leave him alone with the bag anymore either.
