Doesn't have to mack. They smell the air as they are going. Most won't put their noses down unless they are tracking which is entirely different from scenting.

Tie a piece of the pink tracking tape on the quails one leg. Makes it easier to catch.

Unfortunately they are not usually one in the same.
Sounds like you got help coming in Ringneck.

I just trained my first dog. It's the most rewarding thing I've ever done in 35 years of hunting. It's really not hard.

You've got some great help right here with Ringneck and TJC. I probably spent 100 hours reading and watching vidios before I started and these guys know what there talking about. I'm willing to help out if you need it.

How old is your dog?

Any body that would be cheap I wouldn't want them. You only get what you pay for.I sent my dog back to Virginia for 3 weeks and she came back all screwed up.She had separation disorder and it took her a little while to come back to where she trusted me again. Shes back on tract and on her way to be a brag dog.She scent runs then she's on ponit that quick.Spend a lot of time with your dog and get them into birds as much as you can.The dog will start to mature in about 2 years.This dog hunts every thing and I have to pull her off unless they are are birds.Sounds like the ringneck has a plan for you.If the dog ranges to far let them run with the lease or the cord to slow them down.

they used to be around 5oo a month depends how quick your dog learns....dog stays there the wholle time so they can work with.... so for the money you get training and boarding....first they train the dog then they train the hunter and the dog together

Before any one sends there dog away they better be sure the dog will take it. Its serious Buisness. No dog can learn it all in a month. Most trainers are 3 months I beleive they might tell you just to get the dog started.My dog went away to prison when I sent her.
