Seems like I just got this pup, but he will be a year old next month. He is developing very well. I plan on some training time on the Prairies of South Dakota this Summer, some derby events in the Fall, then into formal training.
We took Cody to the training grounds for his first run in front of a horse a couple of weeks ago, and he did very well, immediately figured out that he should key off the horse, stay to the front, and LOOK FOR BIRDS. He found and ripped birds and ran very well for a young dog.
No photos of the training session, but here is one from December on the Kern River - he's alert to some nearby valley quail...
