Re: The game of chase...

I haven't read through all the replies but this is not a problem. Young dogs chase birds. They are bird dogs after all.... Too many novice trainers do not train the stop to a good standard imo and settle for a very mediocre standard even in low distraction areas. It is no surprise, then it quickly ...

Re: Dropping a dead for a runner

The pair of us thought she couldn't have been that frightened by him if she walked up to him when she could have just kept going and been long gone!!!! He is the nicest most reasonable bloke you could hope to meet but even he was lost for words!

Re: Dropping a dead for a runner

I am lucky enough to get nearly all my ground for a bottle at Christmas and helping out the owner when I can, but Trekmoor, I wasn't born at the right time, I really wish there were lots of rabbits about, I almost cry when I read about the time when there were lots of rabbits and coveys of grey part...

Re: Switching food but not brand

I have never had a fussy eater but my wife claims her cat is a fussier eater, well he is not when she is away and I am in charge, if he doesn't want it he goes without!! She is always surprised how well he eats the food he was a bit bored with when she left after she comes home! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Ghillie's Report Card

I had a Fabia Estate, I bought it cheap with 60k on the clock when I no longer got a company car as I was setting up my own business and it was the best car I've ever had, took a bit of getting used to after the pricier makes I had had before but I soon loved it to bits, when I had taken it to 180k ...

Re: Non definitive assessment of the HPR breeds.

I saw a gwp out today, no problems until they tried to put it in a trailer with a couple of labs,a couple of springers and a cocker who had been sat quietly together and WW3 broke out within a couple of seconds and he had to be removed pronto. It was being used as a beating dog :brickwall: and I fel...

Re: Dropping a dead for a runner

I wasn't having a go as like you I very rarely have more than one down when shooting on my own (so rarely I think I can count the times over the last five years on the fingers of one hand but that may say more about my shooting :-D ) but the standard of the average dog on a shoot over here is not g...

Re: Become a positive trainer for 7k

Your all mad if you think most people on shoots train their dogs. Most seem to do the complete bare minimum then take them along shooting or beating. They'll highlight all the good things the dog does right accidentally, whilst ignoring all the problems it causes whilst doing something slightly rig...
