Re: GoPro Mounting?

I was watching a show the other day and they were hunting hogs in Texas and they had a camera hooked to one of the dogs collars. It was pretty cool to watch.

Re: The Spaniel Spot

Doing a little training with doc this afternoon. He's very calm inside the house for a 4 month old pup but once he gets in the field he flips a switch and it's go mode!!! He's my first bird dog and were having a blast!

Re: New puppy and kids

Thanks Doug. We took the boys and the pup out in the field last night and let them play. He got much more comfortable with them and now he just wants to play with them.

Re: New puppy and kids

I'm definitely going to keep a close eye on him and not going to let the kids be alone with him. I spoke tk the breeder yesterday and he has been around children just not many. He won't leave the boys alone now and just wants to play. Not sure if I over reacted yesterday or not I just wanted to get ...

Re: New puppy and kids

I did try and contact him at the same time I posted this. I'm still waiting to hear back from him. I figured I would try to get as much help as fast as possible being this is a pretty important problem.

Re: New puppy and kids

Thanks for the help. We just took him out to the field and he seemed to do much better with them. I'm going to give it a few days and if it doesn't improve he's gone. I can't have a dog that I can't trust.

Re: The Spaniel Spot

I'm getting him from Doorcreek kennels out of Wisconsin. I'm sure it's probably not the best place to pick him up but it beats having to drive to Wisconsin or paying for shipping. They've been very helpfull in leading me in the right direction with people to help me train around my area.
