Training/Introducing an older dog (3yr) to upland

Postby Stillwater97 » Wed Nov 25, 2009 1:11 pm

First post btw..

My wife & I adopted a 3yr old Brittany last year and I'm attempting to get him into upland.

This is what I've done so far:

1. I've introduced him to a pheasant wing and he is very eager to chase it around & has fun doing it
2. I've introduced him to the starting pistol. at first he was a bit nervous, but now since I've always provided treats and lots of praise he seems to be fine with it.
3. I've taken him out hunting once already and he did scent some quail & flushed them, but he didn't know really what to make of it.

Any thoughts on what other things I can do with him to increase birdyness etc...

I'm not expecting miracles, I just want for both of us to have fun out in the field.

Thanks in advance!
