GERMAN SHORTHAIR PUPS - Hunting Stock

We have an excellent litter of German Shorthair Pointers on the ground right now from our “Tell x Abby” breeding. These pups are going to be exceptional bird dogs and family companions based on the qualities of the parents. “Tell”, the sire of this litter is an impressive specimen of the German Shor...

Re: Best Upland Books

I really enjoyed Bob Wehle's book "Snakefoot: The Making of Champion". The book details his 60 year pursuit of trying to produce the best possible bird dog. I'm not a huge Elhew fan mainly because of where I hunt. But his experiences and breeding philosophy are pretty amazing

Re: Perfect pedigree site

The GSP Ancestry site has an impressive database if your looking for pedigree information on your Shorthairs. It shows the COI & ALC coefficients of each dog if your interested in that. It also has some information on known breedings and off-spring.

It really gets the weight off of your shoulders and onto your hips, like a fanny pack. They're very well b...

Re: How much does training cost?

I also can't stress enough how comfortable you need to be able to cummunicate with your trainer. A lot of trainers are very good at comunicating with and training the dogs. Therefore people skills can be severely lacking.. This is a problem because after the dog is trained the trainer must then trai...

Re: Training with pen raised Texas Blue Scaled Quail

I use Bob-Whites because they seem to recall the best, survive the best in a JH, and are also the most economical. They also hold the tightest when working dogs. Starting in late April you can get day-old Bob White chicks for about $1.75/EA and then raise them to juveniles. Put them in the JH's 3-We...

Re: How much does training cost?

$500 - $700/month in Arizona. If your pup is only 10 months old he probably is only ready for a 1-month puppy clinic. That is where a trainer would work on basic things such as Here, introduction to birds and introduction to gunfire. You can do this pretty easily yourself. I would get a hold of a vi...

Re: Training with pen raised Texas Blue Scaled Quail

I've used Bobwhites (regular and Reds), Gambles Quail, and Blue's in a Johnny house. They will all recall if left in the Johnny house for at least 2-weeks before released. I think overall the Bobwhites seem to survive better and recall more often to the JH. I've also had pretty good luck with the Ga...
