Re: A very sad day and need help

Thanks for all the replies. Mate is not the same pup he was before this happened. Supposed to pick up pigeons tomorrow and I hope it happens this time. I am thinking of just letting him hit the scent cone and chase the first one and then let it be for the day. I will do it early when we go out and l...

Re: A very sad day and need help

Thank you all for your replies. Took Mate out for a run today and someone had one of those drones flying around and Mate stopped and looked at it but his tail was up and it was his usual way of checking out something new to him (like the mop but that's a different story) the person flew it a little ...

Re: Words of Wisdom

If there's a good deal on a used remote thrower in good condition don't hesitate buy it. Lesson learned the hard way and now it will probably be a new one when I'm ready for about $125 more than I could have gotten one. Oh well

Re: Home Alone

Thanks for the replies. I will have a 10X10 kennel on a concrete slab by the time he arrives but didn't know if at his young age being out there all day would be that great for him although once he was here for awhile and got to know everything a lot better my plan was to leave him out during the da...

Home Alone

Hello, well I have a potential problem coming up in about 5 months...Maybe lol. I will be getting a pup at that time and my potential problem is this, how did you handle the pup during the day if you and your wife both worked?

Re: First day on birds

First did you shoot with all those guns the same day and was this his introduction to gunfire? It almost sounds like something did bother him but you watching him as you did would give you a better idea than I would have. sounds like something bothered him and without knowing every detail I would sa...

Re: Garmin Alpha?

Reading the thread I see that someone posted that they had at least a 1 second lag between applying the stimulation and it actually reaching the collar, is this a problem that a lot of you are having or is it about the same speed as the pro 550 etc.? Looking at the Alpha tt15 so doing some research....
