Have I got my gun dog training priorities wrong?
I'm worried I'm being too soft on my gun dog during training.
And how easy is it to find breeders and train a gundog protégé?
He doesn't want to retrieve.
I'm about to start training mine to pick-up.
My young lab is such a challenge to train.
My lab is a sweetie but is often defiant.
Ive been disappointed in the past.
I've noticed a few problems developing on with blind retrieves.
Ive read about a problem labs can suffer from that causes them to collapse.
I think my bitch is too well-bred for my capabilities.
I'm worried that one day he'll go and not come back.
Im struggling to maintain control over my hard-working gundog.
I keep getting conflicting advice about where to start.
Im in two minds about sending my 13-month-old labrador to a professional trainer.
I've noticed that my young gundog is finding it difficult to balance game he was retrieving especially when the birds were still alive.
I cant get my gundog to swim all the way across the river on our shoot to retrieve birds. He is happy in water but only goes half way then…
Gundog training: How do I train my gundog to 'get back' when out on a pheasant shoot?
My labrador has wanted to retrieve from a very early age but now his technique has gone to pieces. I dont want to deter his enthusiasm.
My two-year-old spaniel bitch gets very excited when the guns start to shoot and will run off in the direction of them, much to our, and others, annoyance.
