First day at the office

Recommended Posts

We went to a local duck shoot today, with Isabelle, 9.5 months old. She's always been super steady and had a few retreives on pigeons, so we thought we'd hang around at the back, let her have a good look, and perhaps pick up something if there's something easy.

Turns out, on the first drive, she already picked 2 runners from the bushes, and she eventually picked up 15 birds from 3 drives! She was 'impeccable' -- she is a bit impatient when sitting around, and as yet to understand not ALL ducks are going to fall down to be picked up just yet, but she's been a little star, came right back, even when there was another bird to pick in the way.

Other pickers and the keeper were fantastic and very welcoming. The other picker ups let her have some 'easy' picks too, even down to recalling their own ranging dogs. 

Anyway, she's knackered now.

sounds and looks like you both had a great day and you are deservedly proud of her. Well done.

Be very careful. A dog so young can be easily ruined by too much, too soon.

A lot of people think that half-trained dogs are the finished article.
