I believe this. I did to get my pup a little better before heading to the field though.Just from hunting with our dogs he has improved so much already
I agree 100%, But when hunting it doesn't hurt to have an experienced dog around. Training only goes so far. You introduce the dog to birds. But mostly everything should come natural to him/her. (if it has a good gene pool) I trained my dog by myself. And we taught each other. As the dog gets older and hunts more, it learns more. Experience is the key. Every year my dog gets better and better.Best way to train the dog is to train the dog.
actually we do...we hunt with a guy that didnt train his dog...the things awesome...its the dog that found the 12 birds in the pic on the first page. this year is the dogs first hunting season...i hunted last year but all it did was run around but no this year...Mack, do you have an experienced dog to hunt with?
