I have a yellow lab female that is exactly 4 months. I've been following Evan Graham's Smartwork pretty religiously with her, and I've got her as far as she can go until she gets her permanent teeth, and we can start force fetch.
In mid May we'll be adding a male yellow lab to the family, and he will be trained as bird dog too. I'm planning on doing all the training myself, as I'm wrapping up law school in a couple of weeks, and I have plenty of time until I take the bar in August.
I am wondering if there are any training guides that offer suggestions on training two bird dogs simultanesouly. I'm not really worried about teaching them independent bird dog skills; mainly, I want to know if there are any special tecniques on using multiple dogs in the field, or how to get the dogs to work together.
Also, if any memebers have advice they want to share, please enlighten me.
