  1. You have to be fussy! There was much discussion over which dog my FTW cocker was going to! Best of luck, he’s an absolute beauty, would love to see his pedigree, there’s tons of cockers out there with those lines but if you get an especially good ‘un they’re usually VERY good!
  2. Got two bitches going to stud this week (one only ever has two and we’re keeping however many she has, the other we’ll be running hers on too so it’s not for the money) Both are going to champion dogs, the springer stud is costing £500, the cocker £600 which we’ve no problem with whatsoever and a small increase due to the price increase in pups at the moment. Not sure the point I’m trying to make here but you ain’t having pups without a stud, don’t forget if the pups turn out to be potlickers it’ll reflect on the Sire as well so it’s not just a mating you’re getting, it affects the r
  3. We find that floodlights, a damned good padlock, CCTV, 12’ high kennel panels and a huge black GSD works, especially if nobody knows you have it 👍👍
  4. Ohhhh what a beauty!! Definitely a Sprocker? Looks rather lab x like!
  5. She’s called Molly, yep another Molly 😂 Sorry OP for hijacking your thread x
  6. Yup. Seen a lot of ‘pro trainers’ do that but thankfully more recently I’ve seen a lot that don’t do that too, I think things are changing - I could go on but won’t get started. Certainly I can hand on heart say that anybody on here who has ever been to me or sent their dog to me for training has never seen me do anything like that! 😘 thank you! Yesterday that wee Pup was hoolying around the field when they were all taken for a run as a break from the yard and their kennels and would recall etc but today on our first session my only goal was to make myself the centre of her univer
  7. I’ll say what I always say. Find yourself a good Gundog trainer and have some one to one lessons. My pups have nothing done with them bar recall, sit and maybe an odd retrieve and getting out and about to see the world. I only started ‘training’ my 9 month old springer bitch pup today, for example. Oh! What area are you in as between us I’m sure we can help recommend someone in your area. Photo taken today because well, why not and I adore her! Edited to add I do apologise I read it as you had been on a shoot day. However still get yourself some help 😊
  8. +1 More importantly what are YOU doing?
  9. Can’t see the kennel club registering those 🤔🤷‍♀️ Gutted MyKc is down at the mo so can’t have a nosey!
  10. Oh my days yes, I didn’t look closely at the pedigree as was in a rush! You’re right!!
  11. Walk it at heel on a lead or train it. Playtime and hunting for itself needs to stop. Basically the outside world is far more interesting than you are. Honestly now I think you’ve got to the point where you need the help of a trainer. Whether you’re working from a book or with a trainer it’s Jack all good unless you’re going to be consistent. You have to put the work in and so does whoever walks the dog or you’re fighting a losing battle. Edited to add: best of luck, we can all wax lyrical on here ‘til we’re blue in the face but none of us has seen the dog - I strongly sugg
  12. As above really, North West / North Wales area would be ideal. Cheers
  13. And there was me thinking you’d mellowed 😂😂😂 Blow pipe 😂😂😂 ‘Ave eet 😂 Or... ‘Get oot’.... 😉
