Some things to consider being a bird dog guy in nj- wmas are closed to dog training may 1 to September 1 except in dog training areas , dog training areas often lack cover and are often control burned, late spring can be very bad for ticks, spray yourself, good tick repels to on dog and lymes disease vaccination for dog, good training areas can be harder to find then good hunting areas, many training clubs use the same ground, summer birds can be of very poor quality, if someone takes you somewhere to train ask them if it is ok to come back to train before you do, be very careful especially around water, water attracts people, people can mean rotten food , fishing line, hooks, needles, broken glass etc. I love love love training dogs just wish I could do it somewhere other then New Jersey !! Hope some of this advice helps and good luck. Training a dog is like going to the gym, if you go a few times it does not help!
