Re: The game of chase...

Your friend should have lent you the pigeons while still alive. :lol: If he’ll now lend you a basket of live ones I’d do it this way. Take the dog somewhere he can run without danger. Show him a pigeon and toss it for him to chase. Then wait. When he returns toss him another and wait. When he return...

Re: What bones can a puppy have

I feed the lamb fat on the breast of lamb all through the year. It’s great for hard working dogs but even in the off season never causes tummy upsets. Pork bones are good but pork fat can cause issues.

Re: The game of chase...

Everyone has their own way of training, but I personally wouldn't want him near game until the basics were properly in place and fully understood, otherwise you're setting him up to fail on the stop whistle every time. If you could have him walking on a lead around game and do some heel work/sit st...

Re: The game of chase...

The first 6 months is, I find, the window of opportunity on game because the pup is too physically immature to catch anything and you can subtly manage any game contact to your benefit. Then when you start shooting the stuff that matters to you over the dog it concentrates the mind on focussing on t...

Re: The game of chase...

I agree with SP re the show him you’re after game and he’ll soon learn to discriminate, and that’s what I do, but the problem for many is that they don’t have the access to game, so the crows/swallows/dicky birds/pigeons become their primary focus in exercising their prey drive cos there’s nowt else...
