    Default 1st post..... Sarge

    Hey guys/gals, Been checking the site out for a few days now and decided to join. Looks like a lot of knowledge and quick reply's happen here so I figured it would be a good site if questions arise. This my first "duck" dog Sarge, he's 6.5 months old and been a pleasure to work with. Loves to train, learn, and please. I've yet to see him give up on anything I've thrown at him. We are just getting started into FF and everything up to now has been smooth sailing except for some screw ups on my part. We're following Chris Akins DDB & DDB2, very easy to learn from and breaks it down nicely. Here's a few pics of the pup from the beginning to now......

    Welcome and I agree with Mr. Nutt. Sarge is a handsome little fella and looks like a whole lotta fun.

    Thanks guys.... I was concerned at first about his size bc at his 6 month checkup he was 66lbs. His mom was English and dad was American so I thought I would end up with a 75lb dog but I'm thinking he's going to be a big ice buster now. I run the heck out of him and we train at least 3x a week so he's not just sitting around. I cut his food a little bit and have noticed a huge difference in his speed and agility.
