Thats pretty cool...with her being so young I am using some now...I use them sparingly, shes not getting a meal out of it...as she gets older and better I'll prob not use as much

We worked this morning again...she did better...gets better each time...she is coming to name and whistle really well now( maybe cause she likes treats lol)...we worked hard on whoa today...she did ok...some of the time she sat when I told her whoa but she stayed...its a start I think...didn't mess with wing today, want to get commands good first...


I'm not a big fan of treats as a reward, My dogs reward was always paise and positive verbal and physical reinforcement. I don't know what it makes any difference I just never done it.

But then I also encouraged my last pointer to point rabbits too. I did catch some flack for that, a little nontraditional I know but feild competitions were not of any intrest to me. And with the decline in grouse and quail habitat and numbers I got tired of getting more exercise than meat. She would point and hold to shot and retrieve most any thing she came accross. We came home many days with a mixed bag. That was her job and she was very good at it. \:\)






Thats great. I have a short hair that I have never really discouraged pointing rabbits. Like you I got tired of walking and not seeing her locked up. However I took her to Minnesota this year and she drove me crazy with those big white rabbits up there. She didnt point them....she chased them. Or at least the first few....
