    Ace Up My Sleeve

    Great story A5! They never cease to amaze me with their will to live and survive. I have shot roosters before and seen them bounce on the ground because they were so "dead." Only to watch him come to life and sprint off into the sunset!

    Question for Golden Breeders-Gay Tail

    I have been breeding Golden's for many years. I had to look it up because I have never heard of it or seen it on my litters. My suggestion is that you look at pictures of both parents before you buy a dog. If you don't like a certain feature in one of the parents be careful because it will show...

    A Labrador Retriever Struggling Retrieving Birds (video) - Advice Appreciated

    Watch the video and listen to yourself. Way to many commands. If a dog is Force fetched or Collar conditioned whatever term you want to use the dog should pick up that bird. From watching the video I can assume a few things. 1. The yard work of force to pile was not completed. That is not about...

    Dog price questions

    Prices on dogs will always be debated, especially on forums like this. You can find a "good" dog in lots of places. "Good" is what you perceive as good. Standards that put your dog against others is where the increase in money comes from. Proven health, retrieving standards, hunt tests, etc all...

    Dog price questions

    Thanks for checking out the website! Here is what I will tell you on prices of dogs. If you have to get on a waiting list, there is a reason. If you find a dog the breeder couldn't get rid of, there is a reason. I had sticker shock when I purchased my second golden. The difference is why I now...

    Opening day in Minnesota is usually hot and full of crops. I like to wait until more crops are down and the weather is cooler.

    1.5 YO Pup Will fetch pheasants but not grouse... ideas? Maybe afraid of feathers?

    Exactly! one successful training session does not produce a trained retriever. Like I said before it is about obedience not retrieving. One person's definition of a retrieve can be different from someone else's definition. But I don't want my dog to drop the bird in the water before they deliver...

    1.5 YO Pup Will fetch pheasants but not grouse... ideas? Maybe afraid of feathers?

    Force fetch, collar conditioning, and yard work are all about obedience. It isn't about retieving. They will pick up what you tell them to because it is obedience training. Then when you are in the field the obedience is solid and they understand that they do not have an option of picking up a...

    Brining game birds?

    I use a Kosher salt (it is thicker with big crystals) dissolved in water with pheasant breasts. I soak it for at least four hours then I smoke them on the pellet grill. Great snack right out of the fridge!
