Re: Aggressive pup

You probably need a different breed if you have issues with puppies growling at each other. I'm not trying to be mean just honest. There's Alpha pups in every litter and breeders should avoid selling them to pet owners or novice hunters.

The grass needs to be short enough for the bird to see the dog coming. I always fly birds out, just point them in the direction you want them and let them go. You want the card board big enough to keep him flying about 40 yards out, no trees.
