Re: Free Running My Rescue Brittany

It's not that we're trying to rush things. I was just trying to get an idea of a good, natural progression for training. He gets some quality, high speed running in at the dog park but on walks, it's a very slow pace for him.....or so it seems. We just want to find a good balance in hopes of getting...

Re: My Brittany won't point....any suggestions?

Actually, we've been randomly firing off cap guns, then a 22g, etc.etc. on hikes to get him used to sudden, loud sounds. He's not phased. He's too excited about life.....perhaps?? :lol: Anyway, I watched him when my husband shot twice with the shotgun and he was obsessed watching the bird. Didn't ev...

Re: My Brittany won't point....any suggestions?

Well, he did it. My husband was in the back building and the door was cracked. Our young Britt went in there, saw the pheasants in the pen and did a perfect 3 point point. That afternoon, we went into the field with a bird, the launcher and both dogs. We worked the field. The older boy pointed and t...

Re: Free Running My Rescue Brittany

I want to clarify two things. When we're hiking in the desert, my older two dogs aren't walking calmly behind my like Cesar Millan's pack.....well, the blue heeler is when she gets to come with us because she's old and crippled but the 8 1/2 year old Brittany is running all over the place like a man...

Free Running My Rescue Brittany

I'm curious what thoughts some of you have with regards to training my new rescue Brittany. He is 1 1/2 years old and has had a life of confinement up to now. He is lovabale and our obedience training in the yard is going unbelievably well after being together for only 2 weeks. We also have a 8 1/2 ...

Re: My Brittany won't point....any suggestions?

Thanks for all the great advice. We're trying to get our hands on some pigeons but are having trouble finding any. On the other hand, our dog has discovered which out building the other 3 pheasants are living in and is obsessed with the scent eminating from it so that's a good sign in my eyes. We're...

Re: My Brittany won't point....any suggestions?

Thanks for your reply. I searched out the previous posts and found a couple web sites that have hunting information. Our thought is that we didn't let the launcher sit there for long enough to build a good scent. We've also found a few tips on the websites that we're going to try with regards to tra...

My Brittany won't point....any suggestions?

We currently have an 8 year old Brittany who is awesome in the field. We recently rescued a 1 1/2 year old Brittany who seems to exhibit bird interest. Today, we planted a pheasant and had him work the field. The wind was pretty steady and at times he seemed to hit the scent. He then went all the wa...
