Re: sent our little girl to camp

I am happy to hear that puppies come back from training the same as they left (hopefully with some serious improvements in field behavior). About 2 weeks before he was scheduled to go to the trainer he decided he no longer needed to listen in the field. As a complete novice, I am in no position to t...

We got a pup (Sammy) from the same litter at the end of November. He is a wonderful puppy and my first bird dog. I'm so glad you found his brother. Picking between those two was so difficult and I often wondered where the other went. If your pup is anything like Sammy, he will be crazy for birds of ...
