Hi,

I've been a lurker on this site for a couple of years. I've really enjoyed reading allot of the posts. My name is Brian Cluff and I am passionate about my bird dogs. I raise and train German Shorthairs and English Pointers as a hobby. I am not a dog breeder. I have however gone to great lengths to find dogs with the right bloodlines and qualities from across the nation. The qualities that I think are important for a dog to have and be able to develop are bidability, an awesome nose, style, stamina, and a willingness to retrieve. I really enjoy hunting the three species of quail here in Arizona -Gambles,Scalies, and Mearns. I get out as often as I can during hunting season.

Hey Brian, I'm a fellow Arizonan and also new to the boards, in fact this is my first post! I would say welcome but you were here first haha. I'm originally from IA and am just getting into training dogs. My dog is getting really good with dummy birds but I don't know where to go to try out some live birds. Any suggestions?

Are you talking about birds to train your Choc. Lab with or do you have a pointing dog as well? I'm not as familiar with the retriever training as I am the pointing dogs. I guess I will need to get up to date though with retriever training since my daughter has asked for a Choc. Lab for Christmas! I have a Lab puppy coming from Sharon Potter of Red Branch Kennels http://www.redbranchkennels.net/.

Sharon does allot of training with and for Rick Smith so I'm exited to see the caliber of dogs she has.
