Re: Looking for a good breed

Also if you didn't already know there are two types of Labs. There is the American Lab or the English Lab. The American Lab is hyper, lankier, and bread for hunting. The English lab has a bigger head, blockier body, shorter, and not as hyper. The English Lab is generally bread for being a show dog, ...

Re: Looking for a good breed

A lot has to do with the temperament of the dog. My GSP is only super hyper at nights if she has sat in a kennel for 6 hours plus. (didn't mean to asked my roomate to take her out and didn't) I came home to a hyper dog, but took her out for a walk and she settled down. Find a dog breeder that has a ...

Do's and Don'ts in training a pointer?

I Have owned an ESS my whole life. I don't know much about pointers and the way they should be taught. From what I've read there is not a exact way to train them. I am just looking for the major things that can ruin a pointing dog. For example I don't know what the whoa command is, but have seen it ...

Re: Docking an older dog

Don't worry about the tail. Its a precaution like dew claws on a dog. It's not necessary, but down the road if you leave them it can cause more harm than good. The docked tail has less of a chance to cause problems such as knocking things over, getting caught in a barbed fence, or breaking it. Once ...

Re: Young Dog Eating Birds

I'm not sure if this is a great idea, but my father had a knuckle headed springer that would chew up the pheasants he would shoot. He drove nails into the dummy all over, taped over all the nails, wrapped two pheasant wings around it, and when she bit into it too hard she would get a little poke fro...

Re: north dakota duck opener 09

Does your GSP do a good job retrieving ducks and geese? Also that was a successful hunt I'd say. Where area did you hunt around?

Re: Wolf or Coyote???

I'd lean towards a hybrid between,but if you told me to choose one of the two I'd say a coyote. That would be a great coyote to shoot up here in ND.

Re: Dog died

I'm sorry to hear about your loss. My previous family dog died at the age of 6 by getting bit by a rattle snake. Sudden deaths are very hard to get over. The way we solved the problem was going out and with in the next week finding a dog to bring home and focus on. Hope that helps.

Re: Butterball's First Hunting Road Trip

You have a true hunter on your hands. I'm taking mine out here in a few weeks. Hopefully the 8 week old pup does the same thing.

New Pup training question

I am new the forums and very excited to join this forum. There is an abundance of information and a lot of educated dog owners on this forum. I have a couple questions on my new dog. When is a good time to send her to a professional trainer, and what age would be appropriate to do so? http://i593.ph...
