Yep pear, You are probably right I just like a 50lb. dog I guess. There is a huge size difference in the GSP breed. I guess when you breed 2 dogs you never know what size the offspring will be. I had a litter this spring and have been training one of the 9 month old pups from this litter. Well he is...

I have a GSP that is going on 1 year this month and she is still small. There is a pic of her under the ""Took my camera training today!!"" post in the training forum. In the second pic she is the one on point. She is also the one in the last pic. She is about 35lbs. and pretty muscular not thin. I ...

Tak, This tool is great if you have a dog that won't stand at whoa. You know how they want to follow you. You can push back at them when walking out to the front. You can stay in front of them and keep putting them at whoa as they are trying to get to you. I think this works because the dog is stopp...

OhioOnPoint, We live about 15 min. apart. I live in wauseon. That is really crazy. Do you train your own dogs? How long have you guys been doing hunts? Do you enter in any events?

What is different? The beek is smaller head looks different? Where did you get the pigeon? My guess would be it is probably a roller or tumbler pigeon. These will work but like sandhill said not as good. I have a coop with a lot of good rollers. Then I have one with homers. This year I will probably...

""OldSchoolSpringer"" the SH hunt test is worthless. Are you kidding me how many do you have. In SH you dog has to hold point on birds, be steady to the shoot at least but most are steady to fall, back the other dog and retrieve to hand. This would not be a worthless dog to me.

The biggest mistake I make too much pressure way to early. My first dog hunting and shooting pheasants and STW&S at 6 months. The thing about it is at some point with alot of pressure it will all come apart. It is so hard to pick up the pieces.

You will have to teach the dog it can't catch birds. What I do is plant really good flying homers/wild pigeons. Birds that your dog can't catch. Bring my dog in on a checkcord stop it when it gets the scent. Then have an assistant wake that bird up but don't flush. Make sure you are in fairly low g...

Your hip is what we around here like to call a bad deal'e'o. It sure is nice when they start retrieving on there own. This is my first dog I might not have to FF. I think they either have it or they don't. Well good luck.
