GPN Gun Dogs
These are tipsif you are having serious issues you need to contact a trainer.
Get involved in your bird dogs future and give him/her the chance to do what the dog is bred to do. I normally will not sell to pet homes due to the fact that they rarely can handle the demands of a quality bird dog with the drive and abilities that we have bred into our dogs. A great way to get involved even if you are not a hunter is through NAVHDA. See the links below to their site. They do training days and help new people come into the world of bird dogs without the vigorous competition of field trials.

Q: Should I buy 2 puppies?
A: No, you will want to spend quality time with your new puppy and not have to split time up between 2 litter mates.
