Thinking about getting a new dog for the holidays? There are many options for getting a new "hunting partner", whether it be a new puppy, an "introduced" dog, a "started" dog, or a "finished" dog. Each has it's own advantages (and corresponding price tag), and each fits a different hunting style or scenario. You may be able to get a puppy, have the time, attention, dedication, and knowledge to fully train that pup to a full fledged champion "finished" dog in a couple of years. Correspondingly, you might be looking for a dog that is moderate in price, and has at least been introduced to some formal hunting dog training. And finally, you may have a budget that allows for a started, or even fully finished dog that will serve you well for many years to come. Whatever you are ready for in a new hunting partner, read on to find out how to determine which of these will be the best choice for your new friend in the field!Read More

Hunting dog steadiness in the field is one of the marks of a complete and well finished "Gentleman's" gun dog. There are many excellent hunting dogs out there in the field that are not completely "steady" in the field, after all every dog (and their owner as well) is, and should be excited to enter the field each hunting season. No fault in that at all. However, a steady, well mannered, and polished hunting dog will provide for a much less stressful hunt, more positive outcomes in the field, and a pleasant experience for all involved! Read on for more thoughts on steadiness in the field from our Pro-Trainer George Hickox.Read More

As loving dog owners, all of us at one time or another have experienced times when our best friend exhibits some form of "unwanted" behaviour. Behavior modification, or behavior correction is easiest to train for when the dog is in their "imprinting" or learning state of mind, which is the first 20 weeks or so. Obedience training for the desired behaviors is much easier in the puppy phase than in an older dog that has already established clear habits and preferences. This does not, however, mean that you can't "...teach and old dog new tricks"! Read on to find out how to correct unwanted behaviors in your dog, no matter what age or stage of learning.Read More
