Gun Dogs

I know around here, alot of people have gun dogs they hunt with. Just curious how many of you on here have a gun dog of your own.

Here's mine. An 8 month old Wirehaired Pointing Griffon named Griff. I just sent him down to Texas with a local kennel to get trained to point, flush, and retrieve. He has great instincts and will make a great bird dog once he gets started.

I have a 3yr old black lab. He is mainly a pheasant dog as I dont do much duck hunting anymore. He does awesome out in the field and has one hell of a nose on him. The only mistake I made was when I let him in the house as a puppy as he is now a house dog and takes up alot of room in the bed.

Ive got a 14mo GSP male who is slowly but surely turning into a bird dog, and Ive got a 4yr old yellow lab female that is an excellent all around game dog, picking up a couple hundred doves a few dozen pheasants and quail and several ducks and geese every year. Im currently awaiting a breeding this spring for another GSP

I have a 5 year old German shorthaired pointer that is incredible. The thing about these types of dogs, it doesnt take much training. It is instinctual, you just have to bring it out. Considering the dog is driven to do what is instinctual. Dont worry about the shock collar, if the kennel is reputable you will not have an issue. Thnk of the collar as a tool and when used properly, it is fantastic.
From a K9 handler and hunting dog owner, I wish you would have tried to train him yourself. There is more gratification than I can ever describe with words seeing a dog go from green to proven. There really isnt anything more to training then sharp commands, definitive tasks and of course REPITION. Training a dog to do what comes natural is cake, your foundation is there for you...
If you are a green handler, just know that your level of acceptability is what level your dog will follow for obedience. Working a dog is a wonderful thing
