Reinforcing?...ok, will remember that. Going to continue with the verbal...

Re: Training off leash

Thanks for the advice twistedoak.
He been off leash in yard of course and responds very well to "come" at this point. (working on "heel" and "whoa" also with less satisfying results...but being patient)
Will learn about/incorporate a check cord. Have seen them used a lot in videos.
Thx.

Re: #2

He is a puppy and that is what puppies do/ I doubt he is eating but is chewing. Better sticks than shoes, furniture, electrical cords, handkerchiefs, and other items of clothing. I guess if it was me I wouldn't worry about it. Stopping it would be worse than the chewing. Ezzy Thx Ezzy. Yeah, you ri...

Re: Sent vs outbox

Ahhh. So once messages in my outbox have been opened and read by the person I sent them too, they will then appear in the sent folder, correct?
So if someone doesn't frequent this site often, or no longer does at all...the outbox messages may never get moved to the sent folder.
Thx.

Breeding GSP dams

I was wondering if there is a limit on how many times breeders should breed a dam. Does it get to a point where it becomes unhealthy for the dam? Think I heard that cancer of the uterus becomes a risk. Is there any risk to the puppies if the dam is on her 4th, 5th, 6th litter?
Thx

Anyone have experience with Kni-Co? A buddy has the Trekker and it works great. Just wondering if anyone has a stove that uses 5" pipe. I ask because my canvas tent has a 4" stove jack and I don't want to cut it. Thinking of reducing the pipe from 5" down to 4" so it can exit the tent without having...

Hey,
Trying to learn about some bird hunting terms and training for a dog.
Would like to know what the terms "bird work" and "field work" mean and how they are done.
These are exercises that can be done all year, correct?
Thanks.

Encouraging thoughts. I actually asked myself this question today...What are GSP owners doing with their dogs that I can't do with one when it's not hunting season? I mean, in the southern tier of NY, upland birds and waterfowl are hunted October-December (If I read the DEC website correctly). So th...

Second thoughts

All I have been pretty much thinking about for the past 4 months is getting a GSP. However several breeders I spoke with will not sell to someone who doesn't hunt. And I can appreciate that...A lot of heart must go into breeding and I would never lie to a breeder just to get a dog. I am certainly no...
