Some people might hear some of us talking about training dogs and go WOW. Some of us train gundogs, some of us train test dogs, and alot of people train companion hunting dogs. That's why there are all different kinds of training methods and they all work. But you have to match the training to the type of hunting, testing, and life style you and the dog will have. There is a good bunch of guys and gals on here that know their stuff. Everyone of them different in one way or another. I didn't post this for replies, but if anyone wants to throw in their 2 cents then lets hear it. I just think the guy just chiming in to just look and might need help. They would better understand a little if it was explained. Training a bird dog is one of the coolest experiences ever. To watch a pup develop into a started dog and then finish out to be your buddy and hunting partner is a great thing.
