Summer Training

Indian Head Intrigue - Jill
I've never tried to break more than one puppy/derby per year. This year I have three, and with a busy work schedule it has been pretty rough. All three are coming along, but all three are so very different. Jim is smart, bold, and tough, and was a challenge to get to hold point. Pete is really smart and soft, and didn't like being set-up in yard work or the bird field. Jill is high-energy and a bit scatterbrained, but very athletic and smart. All three are bird-finders, have brains and style, but have taken different paths in the training/breaking process to get to where they are. It's important to be able to figure out what it's going to take to get your dog broke and do it so they keep their style and intensity on birds.
