Young Dog Eating Birds
Posted: Fri Sep 11, 2009 7:29 am
I have a 7-month old GSP and she will retrieve dummies and tennis balls all day long on land and water. However, I have shot about 10-15 pigeons over her and she will find and begin to eat the bird with very little interest in bringing it back. I did work with her a little with some dead pigeons and she retrieved them great out of the water when she was about 4 months old, maybe she just couldn't eat and swim.... Anyhow, this is my first bird dog and I have no idea how to correct this in a manner that does not turn her off of birds. Please help!!
