So there have been plenty of threads on here about running a pregnant bitch. But what about running one who is still nursing puppies?
Seems like my girl knew I wasn't going to get her any work while she was carrying, but now that the pups are a week old, she keeps looking at me with these pleading eyes. When I put on a cammo hat, or grab the bag of bumpers to train the other dog, she jumps out of the whelping box and comes running over.
Two days ago I let her have about a 200 yard mark, just to see what she'd do. She nailed it - almost no hunt at all, but she was kind of winded when she came back.
Should I let her work, or not?
