    Default actually not much

    I've been reading books and watching videos left and right. And all i can say is that get her out as soon as possible wild birds. I had quinn out on birds as soon as i got her home about the age of yours. i then bought some quail and pheasants from a guy here in delta and she was pointing them for only a few seconds but she was only 10-13 weeks old and was getting her nose into it and finding the planted birds all on her own in an open field. At 4 1/2 months i took her down to Point Mcmickenze to Falcon Ridge Ranch and got some buddies and bought some 18 pheasants and she tracked one 100 yards back in the woods where it took it's last breath and she ended up going 17-18, heres a pic of the end of that day. I have since started raising my own birds chukars and pigeons for her and in turn it's turning into a bussiness, and act on her strong points and focus on those and slowly work on her weak points but actually letting her teach herself through the experiences i expose her to. I have mixed feelings about force fetch so i haven't bothered to start, she would drop the bird alot on the retreive but through the different sessions and praise she is making long retreives and only dropping maybe 2-3 times. Sorry don't want to sound like i'm bragging about my dog and all but thats really all i'm doing, going back to videos and books when i'm stumped. What kind of dog you got? Heres another pic from that women's hunt, look at the concertration in her eyes.

    well sort of..... we do have a Griff on the way though but if i can get a Weiner dog to do it i guess one that is bred for it should be a real treat...
