Re: What gun dog breed do you currently own and why?

GSP because it’s What my buddy had who I hunted with and was mostly familiar with. Prior to my GSP I had previously had two labs and a Belgium mal that I had for work. So far I’ve been very impressed with my GSP and looking to add another to the fleet :D

Inbreeding or line breeding?

Not trying to start an argument but trying to flesh out some details in a dog I’m interested in. When it comes to inbreeding is there a cut off or coefficient you don’t want to cross? From what little I know, doesn’t inbreeding occurs to try and achieve certain traits or qualities, but then on the f...

Re: "Roading" tips- bike or treadmill?

I road using my quad that has a 6’ tube extending off the side and dogs attached to a doubled up bungee on a harness. Seems to work great and bungee enables her to pull with some resistance. I’m sure my neighbors think I’m crazy but it works

Re: Garmin Alpha vs 550 plus- GPS issues

I have the 550 plus and like it. I was having tracking issues as well, returned the device now it works great. One thing I've learned is to keep transmitter out so it maintains a signal. I was putting it in one of my ammo pouches and when I pulled it out to see where dog was it would take awhile to ...

Re: Pro 550+

The directional arrow bounces around pointing in nearly 180 degree different direction than where the dog is and the north indicator is way off as well. I don’t know what’s going on but all I could think of is I noticed the metal ring from the dog collar was rubbing on the collars charging terminals...

Did you build the platform on your Ranger or buy it?
I made it myself....3/4" plywood with 2 pieces of 3/4" square tubing supports underneath to keep from sagging under the weight of the dog's and crates. Held in place by the GripPro ATV pocket anchors.

Re: roading

I don’t know about a harness. I run my dog on remote dirt road while I ride a quad that she has learned to run in front good distance. (Probably not the safest). We started short runs about 6 months old and worked up from there. I figured if I’m hunting her running miles, why couldn’t she exercise.

Bleeding toe nails?

My 1 1/2 year old GSP recently experienced bleeding toe nails after a hunt. Her nails are trimmed appropriately ( I believe) and she’s is routinely exercised and ran on a gravel road for several miles with no issues. After one day of Chukar hunting her nails started bleeding and her feet seemed sore...

Re: Looking for training in So Cal

Work765,
Depending on where your coming from in so. Cal it’s probably a drive for you but I’d recommend Western Wing Kennels in Nevada. I just took my GSP there and am happy with results. Good luck in your search.
