Re: How many gun dogs?

I keep two. Thats all I can live with. They camp and go places with us.
I sure wouldn't do two at the same time. Two old dogs isn't a good thing. Space them out according to how many you plan to have.

Re: How far should Brittany range

Have one that was 400yds by 4 months she wants to be an 800yd dog. Not comfortable with 800. The other was 100yd dog by 4 months. He is a 200yd dog that hits 300 and once in a while 400. I'd talk to the breeder, its all in the genes. If he thinks you have a 400yd dog and you want a 200yd dog I'd lim...

Start him young understanding that you are a team. The species you hunt will teach him productive range. Many like to let a dog run (wild) for a year or so.

So do you think you are going to have a 300 yd dog or 600 to 1000 yd dog. I've got one of each and prefer the 300 yd dog. The 800 or 1000yd dog and I don't see eye to eye always. Much easier to buy the range of pup that works naturally at the range you are comfortable with.

A smart old wild pheasant is a handfull for an inexperienced dog. Your dog would probably love to point them and I'll bet he knows it's a game bird.
