Re: When to begin bird training?

To have a bold, confident pup you need to give your pup contact with birds. One way you can do this is use a locked wing pigeon. Use a confined area so she can't run off, then toss it out in front of her. Let her start handling birds. If she retreives great, but you're not working on that. She needs...
