  1. Hey, I have always wanted a hunting dog, and I finally got one, and your videos have helped me out a lot, so thanks! but I can't figure out where I can get live birds. Like pigeons and pheasants. Do you guys buy them or do you guys trap your own?

  3. Do you run your dogs for a hr. or so to knock the fresh off them before training. I have a 7 mo old setter that i cant get his attention because he is so fired up when i first get him out. He creeps then busts the quail i set out for him. He whoa's, but all that is out the window around birds. He's bird crazy though. Any thoughts on what i should do. I had one trainer tell me he's not mature enough yet.

  4. Also the retrieves and shot pigeons keep them fired up. We have been shooting birds over them as soon as they are ready. Usually 1 bird a day keeps there desire and style up.

  5. I'm with you. It's not THAT they work so many pigeons, it's HOW the pigeons area worked. I had a pup that got into the johnny house and had a field day then decided she didn't need to point. Everyone yelled and preached not to run her on pigeons because they will reinforce. softness on birds. I don't know if you've ever watched any of my videos, but Cinna is the Setter I've posted a few videos. I think you're spot on.

  6. Many few factors play into a dogs pigeon drive. Usually the biggest cut into a dogs staunchness on pigeons is too much pressure or pressure at the wrong time. For the most part we use very little pressure around birds and teach separate from birds, using food rewards to provide positive reinforcement.Taking small steps, low pressure, & giving retrieves during steadiness training keep the dogs where we need them. There are also dogs that have very little drive and that takes a lot of bird work.

  7. Chad, what is your take on the school of thought that if you work a dog on too many pigeons too often that he'll go soft on his birdwork or will become weak on pigeons?
