Tips for Hunt Tests

May sound extreme, but the most helpful thing I did was attend a judges seminar.

Sportdog 2525 parts

I have a friend who says that SD has good customer service because they need it. Trainer friend says he's seen random correction. I use mine EVERY day and have had no issues. SD and GDS have been good to me.

I recently had to change my email address. Is there a way to keep the same username and change my email address for the forum?

Opinion on sportdog collars.

I am equipped with SD. Good customers service, excellent in fact. But friends who use tritronics don't know how good customer service is cause they never use it.

Sportdog 2525 parts

Ok guys, after a couple of email exchanges, SD knows what I am talking about. And, get this, they are sending me a NEW unit! I only have to ship the old one back. SD customer service worked to understand my situation and went the extra mile!

Sportdog 2525 parts

I have worked my way up the sportdog line of ecollars as my training needs got more complex and #of dogs increased. The transmitter unit I have been using is a SD2525. One of my kids broke off the antenna...I mean that the wire is hanging out of the top of the unit. It appears as though the fitting ...

Training a Brittany

Whoadog has given you a good start. I, personally, believe in the yardwork, socialization focus on a pup. If you cannot get him to 'here', 'whoa', or 'heel' in the yard, bird work (even in launchers) will be frustrating. Make it short, fun, and frequent. Did I say have fun?

Is it possible to train a 2 year old Vizsla to hunt?

My four year old 'rescue' Britt is now a hunting machine. Wanted to add a dog, and fell in love with her through my volunteering with American Brittany Rescue. First, I decided if she was only going to be a companion, that was fine with me. Then, began training her like I would a puppy, but slow and...

Gun-shy Lab

I tend to agree with Birddogger, his whole line of comments. I have a 4 year old rescue Brittany that I adopted 6 months ago. At the onset (as she isn't my only dog) I made the conscious decision to bring her along slow. Like a puppy slow. First a couple of months in the training field and yardwork ...
