Re: Picky dog...food suggestions

Try chicken soup for the soul. Strange name but my picky eater eats it without top dressing it. Pretty good food also, my dogs do well on it. And don't over feed. And measure amounts and feed twice a day with 60% at night. Give him 15 or 20 minutes then pick it up. They have to learn to eat when giv...

Re: Worried I picked the wallflower pup

I would absolutely stay away from the dominate pup. Depending on the breeding they can turn into a handful for a novice trainer. I ended up with the last pick on a high powered litter and she was the dominate female. I've had my hands full with her. Haven't decided if she is the worst or best dog I'...

Re: Dog points, but won't point pheasants

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. May take some time for him to learn how to handle them. No dog can handle every pheasant correctly because some pheasants just refuse to be handled. Al...

That's great news! I thought that breeding might produce some nice dogs. Nice find. Enjoy the ride. A month then and another month later on would be a great investment.

Re: training a pointing breed to sit on command

The Internet has its limits – or perhaps my typing skills have their limits. I'm sure others will fill in for my unwillingness to address the subject of why your dog should be steady to wing. Steady to shot is a different story for many. But I'd suggest you read a few basic books on the subject of ...

Head looks like gsp. Heads vary a bit with gsp's. Typical patch at the base of the tail also. A lot of the white gsp's have a really soft fine coat. Quite a bit of leg and neck. Looks young with not much chest yet. Most happy shorthairs don't spend much time with their tail hanging like that though....
