    The pups young and still needs his shots so be careful. Run the pup out in the fields/woods, let him explore. Introduce him to water when it warms up. Start obedience now, just simple stuff, encourage him to come to you. Get him to like you and have fun.

    I use Quail for a young dog, when he is ready.
    Yes, he sure was. Looking forward to meeting up with him and his group/dogs.

    Thanks Don!

    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!

    I need more information.

    What kind of dog do you own?
    What do you hunt, (upland, waterfowl)
    Have you ever trained a dog before?

    The clubs that were mentioned above only allow purebreds.

    Remi is a black lab/husky mix. Seems predominately lab
    Upland only no waterfowl
    I have as far as house pets, not hunting dogs. Im following Tom Dokkens program and implementing a few things here and there from others for ex. some of Hillmans material. Remi(and myself) have been learning rather quickly. Honestly, she is doing great so far!

    Thanks! And I did learn that after doing more reasearch

    Remi was introduced to live birds! This followed us playing games of hide-a-wing/huntemup indoors the past couple weeks and guaranteeing her success, until she didn't need the guarantee...maybe 2 finds!? We moved it outside and after she found a couple, upped the anti. She found wings both visible and hidden in a field as well as in a hedgerow. She got the bird intro and that turned into planting some birds. She found them and flushed them like it was her job!

    Heres the update with pics: Say hello to Remi!
