Re: How to get a dog interested in birds.

Ya she was mad she couldn't get her toy dog so I told her she could dress this one up. It fits her as she acts like one of those rich girls. Spoiled and everything has to be about her, this is about the dog not my wife. :lol:

Re: How to get a dog interested in birds.

That's a good Idea, now that it is spring time all the geese and ducks are coming back. Maybe letting her run after those as long as she doesn't get in any fights might help.

Re: How to get a dog interested in birds.

I should be able to get some Quail in here soon, the trainer that I will be working with said he should be getting them soon and bring her around them because they will make sounds when they fly so that may interest her. I will try the teasing her part here soon and see what she will do. Her bloodli...

Would playing with a frozen dead bird help or is this something that I should just keep showing her some live birds and eventually she...

Her parents are Sire: K Rivers Runs like a Diesel and the Dam is K Rivers Beans Blaze Kandy Korn JH. I don't have a break down of their past yet but Diesel is a hard core hunting dog and Kandy is a hard core trial dog. So I am hoping Molly will be the best of both worlds.
