She did well on her first off the trail training/hunting trip, a buddy and I went out. I followed you guys advice and left my shotgun at home and had my buddy take his. I was focusing on Lilly.

Re: My 4 month old puppy pics

just wondering what is lower risk than a 22 at 100 yards then slowly walking toward her? I didnt break her in 1 day.

Re: New to site with a Lab. Early Training any insight??

She does point but it is kind of like when she comes across something unfamiliar or if she is really concentrating. She lifts her right front leg, cocks her head down and her tail gos up straight. I am going to try to start teaching her to hold off as well by maybe tying the "bird" on the end of my ...
