I am a long time gsp owner and will be looking for a finished dog within a year. I have trained myself in the past and learned enough to know that there are people who are better than me. He is some background:
• I am 63 years old, pretty fit and a foot hunter. I do not field trial and need a closer working dog.
• The dog will be in South Carolina and work mostly on quail but will take some road trips to pheasant country. We have recently relocated to SC from Western PA
• We have had 5 GSPs over a 40 year period. We currently have an 11 year old female whose mother (a great dog and dear friend) was finally put down three weeks ago at almost 17 years old.
• We prefer a female. She will hunt but probably 2-3 times per month in season.
Housebroken is a bonus.
