  1. I dont know I have never trained a pup. Always had rescue dogs
  2. If the recoil is less than a 416 Rigby shooting a 400grn pill I should be ok. Them bullets must come out at a fair old pace!! Best of luck with the sale mate.

    BMH Pups

    Fair price. Best of luck on finding them good homes. Have you put an ad on Stalking Dir?
  4. Seen that before.Amazing retrieve that is
  5. By the sounds of it I just have to approach them in a different way. I suppose they get bored easy so keep training short say 10mins and frequent
  6. Its the 3 D's. Deescalate, Disarm and failing the first two Disable
  7. Fair enough. And I totally get that. Normally a crack in ribs or side of the head is all it take for a dog to let go. Livestock is another thing all together. I agree dogs should be shot it they are chasing livestock around.
  8. That's a little harsh. My Russell is a rural dog and a rescue at that. Yes she has a bit of an attitude problem but on the whole she's not a bad dog. Very friendly with people and has helped many of my relatives with their fear of dogs (I don't know why many Asian people are scared of dogs). On the odd occasion she might lunge barking and snarling at a dog. Bit that's where a lead is very handy. A quick chat with the owner and she seems to relax. Saying that if the Mrs has her she keeps barking. Bit there is no need for rude behavior from the humans side. Tbh if a person stamped a
  9. Im a heating engineer and see them when they are at home. Bloody wild they are indeed.
  10. Happy with that. Thanks mate
  11. I wonder what the Police would say on a stop and search if they found a 16inch dildo in a poachers pocket??? would it be classed as a weapon? (I dont have or carry one BTW) But yes there seems to be an increase in shocking dog owners. I feel its due to the lockdown dog culture. People went out got dogs and didnt socialise them as they couldnt. They also didnt train them very well so the dog has no respect for them or other humans. Its a shame as its not the poor dogs fault.
  12. @hollowaythats a bad un. Wishing Buddy a smooth and speedy recovery. Ihave always insured my dogs too. My first Terrier had a massive tumour in his chest that ended up coming back. It was why we had to say goodbye to him. But the bill to have it removed the first time came to £8K!! He was 14 by the time the second one developed he wouldn't have made it through the op to say the least. Who is good for insurance that would cover hobby working as thats what I would be doing? I did have a look at agrivet through BASC and it came out at £50 per month for the lifetime cover!!
  13. Who if anybody is a good shout for gundog insurance? Part of me is thinking to have a normal dog insurance policy as the dog will only be joining me on Wildfowling trips and some pigeon shooting as apposed to full on commercial shoots. Just got a quote from agri pets and it seemed a bit on the high side
  14. That pic should be entered for a comp. Very nice tits
  15. A walk around some places shows us that🤣
  16. I did in a former profession train young soldiers and officers too. Would training a dog be much harder? Both are done with patience and reward
  17. No Mat im not on Face**** I hate the thing. If there are any litter in the Club that would be perfect mate. How you keeping anyway??
  18. Too true mate. And a shame. Thanks for the heads up though
  19. My Mrs has been funny about me getting a gundog from the start. She seems to think I can train a terrier to do the work of a retriever!! Your right in that most gundogs are also the family pet and mine wont be an exception. Interesting what you say about Hawkers not learning much from the Harris. I suppose a lab is very similar. Maybe waiting another year might have to be done for the market to stabilise a little and for people to see some sense
  20. I wouldve happily taken some form of ID when going to pick a pup but to send them copies not ever Ok the general feeling im getting is to go for a Lab. Now to locate one at a realistic price that has some working blood that isnt a mong! If anybody knows of any litters pls contact me. I have tried through places like champdogs and have just been beating my head against a wall
  21. so far I have only had Jack Russells and both of them have been rescues. Still have one. Shes a cheeky little thing. I get what you mean about the experience as this will be my first dog from pup and my first gundog. With reference to getting one I seem to have more luck with finding a cooperative breeder for chessies then a lab. The lab breeders I have found were more interested in putting obstacles in the way. I mean who the futuck asks for scanned copies of proof of address?? All seemed a bit odd to me. The Chessie breeder is a fowler too so knows what im looking for and has thus far
  22. Hello fellow shooters!! Has anybody ever had or still have a Chessie?? I hear all sorts about them but I think they are just a misunderstood dog and the myths are just that. Im sure you get the odd crazy Lab too. There is a lady with some horses up the road from me that had a very aggressive lab. Anyway back to the subject. I will primarily be using the dog for fowling and some pigeon shooting. As for training I intend on taking the pup to gundog classes then following up what we have done at puppy school. Any help would be smashing
  23. I find myself in a similar situation. Only all the breeders I have been in touch with just havnt bothered to get back to me and the 2 that did wanted the stupid lockdown prices. Saying that I have a lead on a potential litter of Chesepeakes ant realistic prices!!!
